Synology NAS servers will come with the ElephantDrive embedded cloud backup solution to optimize separate site protection for SMBs

SANTA MONICA, CA – May 06, 2014 — / — ElephantDrive, the leader in device integrated cloud backup and storage, is proud to announce a new partner with Synology, a brand dedicated to developing high-performance, reliable, versatile, and environmentally friendly NAS. The integration will add the ElephantDrive package as a customized version of ElephantDrive’s cloud backup for NAS to the Package Center suite of applications and services that come with Synology DiskStation and RackStation.

This collaboration expands ElephantDrive’s roster of network storage partners, solidifying its position as the leading solution for backup from NAS to cloud. “Our mission is to partner with the leading providers of on-premise storage solutions to make enabling cloud backup, storage, and sync as easy as possible,” said Michael Fisher, General Manager of ElephantDrive. “With Synology, we’ve found another outstanding network hardware maker and a powerful platform for delivering a NAS optimized backup solution like the ElephantDrive.”

With shared storage serving as an essential element in today’s digital home and business, the Synology DiskStation and RackStation enable you to easily share documents, files, and digital media with everyone on your local network and beyond. From Synology’s point of view, including cloud backup made sense for separate site redundancy and ability to access data from anywhere with access to the internet. The smooth integration of the embedded ElephantDrive module allows for fast, simple account creation and set up of backups.

The announcement is the latest step in ElephantDrive’s effort to become the de facto cloud backup solution for NAS devices. Unlike many of the other players in the online storage space, ElephantDrive has focused on integrated partnerships and enabling cloud backup, storage, and sync directly from headless devices like NAS. This differentiated emphasis and technology suite has led to a solution set uniquely qualified for delivery alongside NAS and other “headless” devices.

Ultimately, the end users benefit most of all. The partnership offers unmatched simplicity, providing one program to store all the important data from multiple devices on multiple platforms, and unifying the local and cloud storage experience. IT professionals also stand to gain from this partnership because they can now manage their clients’ cloud backups from different NAS platforms using just the ElephantDrive cloud backup service. ElephantDrive also offers a partner reseller program tailored for IT professionals. The service also offers powerful administrative tools for versioning and archiving data, and the ability to access and share files anytime and anywhere (including on mobile devices).

ElephantDrive and Synology are also pleased to announce a special trial offer of their new service; new users can log in through DiskStation Manager (DSM), the operating system of all Synology NAS, complete a simple application and receive 50 GB of service free for the first month. After the first month is completed, users can either upgrade to a premium ElephantDrive account – or keep using the service for free, if uploaded data is kept under 2 GB.
