Synology Inc. announced the launch of a new data center in Seattle for its cloud backup service Synology C2. The data center is the second location to offer C2 services with the first operating from Frankfurt, Germany. The expansion extends the reach of Synology C2 service to markets in America and Asia, offering new subscribers the choice of where to host their data.
“Augmenting on-premises data security with cloud-based backup is a growing trend among personal and business users alike. The new data center in Seattle allows us to provide a more efficient and localized experience to customers in the Americas and Asia,” said Hewitt Lee, Director of Synology Product Management Group.
Synology C2 is designed to provide owners of Synology products a secure way to back up their data in the cloud. C2 users now have the option to host their data in Frankfurt or Seattle, with each site independently compliant with local regulations and laws.
“Over the past two years, Synology C2 usage has grown considerably around the world. The addition of the new data center will enable users to protect their data while allowing them to more easily meet regulation and security policies associated with data residency,” said Jia-Yu Liu, Vice President and Head of the Application Group at Synology.
