The company said NAS, which is based on the private cloud architecture, will be a better alternative to current public cloud services that may come with hidden costs and risks.

NAS provides file sync services, collaboration suite, corporate communication application, mail services and high availability services simultaneously, helping businesses minimize the risks and losses caused by public cloud services anomalies.

This comes after Gmail and Google Drive malfunctioned for about four hours last March 13. Gmail users reported had trouble saving email drafts, sending emails, attaching and accessing attachments while Google Drive users experienced trouble uploading and downloading files.

Synology product marketing manager Jenn Yeh likened businesses' reliance on public cloud to putting all eggs in one basket and risking losing everything all at once. According to the official, the best practice is to back up data on the public cloud to a local NAS in order to protect valuable data such as mails, contacts, calendar, and cloud drive. This approach enables businesses to obtain the latest data and provide uninterrupted services to customers should there be an abnormality in the public cloud.

It also equips businesses with tools to prevent employees from accidentally or maliciously deleting data and saving data for audits.

The Philippines remains to be one of the countries in the Asia Pacific yet to mature in terms of cloud adoption, according to the Cloud Readiness Index 2018 presented by the Asia Cloud Computing Association. This is despite conglomerates and medium-sized companies relying on the cloud for as much as 80% and 40% of their workload, respectively.
