How to use Synology Hyper Backup with Storadera

Synology NAS boxes have a nice looking web interface DSM. Synology calls it a web based operating system.

In DSM you can install applications. One of them is Hyper Backup.

As name suggests, it allows backing up the NAS.

You can back up to a lot of different destinations, including other S3 compatible Storage like Storadera.

NB! Synology Cloud Sync is known to have compatibility issues with 3rd party cloud providers. If you need backup then please use Hyper Backup
