Protecting NAS devices such as Asustor is perhaps not considered necessary by many, as these devices are popular for their exceptional performance and test scores. But the fact is that, devices like Asustor can also be subjected to a hard-drive crash, a RAID array failure, or can even be stolen, burnt or destroyed. So like any other device, backing them up is equally essential to keep your business up and running. This is where IDrive can help protect your NAS devices, with numerous benefits including version-based data recovery and more.

IDrive has separate Asustor app that can be installed on the respective NAS devices for safeguarding data. To do so, you must first download the application from the website and install it on the NAS device and start transferring your data to the cloud. Backing up your NAS device to IDrive’s cloud protects your data in an affordable, secure and easy manner. With the IDrive Asustor app, you can also schedule automatic backup jobs, perform manual backup and restores, receive email notifications on completion of all scheduled data transfer operations and view log details.
