It is often helpful to have multiple layers of backup. In other words, creating a backup of your backed-up data. This page discusses three methods of accomplishing this goal using Syncrify. It also compares these methods with each other and suggests when to use each method.
The Disaster Recovery feature in Syncrify allow you to setup a parallel Syncrify Server on the same LAN that acts as a backup server in a master-slave configuration. In-coming data from Syncrify Client will automatically get pushed to slaves. If the primary server goes down, you could elevate a slave to master with minimum down-time.
The Daisy Chain feature in Syncrify allow you to setup a parallel Syncrify Server on a different network, which is typically not very fast. For example, across the Internet on to a different physical location.
Using the Cloud Snapshots feature you can create a copy of your backed up data to public cloud, such AWS, Microsoft Azure, Google Storage or Wasabi.
