BackgroundBeing one of Africa's leading architecture & design consultancies, established in 1994, AD Consulting is a boutique architectural firm that provides bespoke interior design and architectural services to a discerning clientele. It is a multiple award-winning architectural firm, the pioneer in interior architecture in Nigeria and the only Nigerian firm nominated/recommended by the British Chamber of Commerce to provide architectural services.
AD Consulting was faced with two problems; Lack of an automatic backup system for important files and documents on the PC's in the studio. Poor collaboration practices at the AD studio.
Our SolutionAfter accessing the current infrastructure at AD, we were able to recommend a NAS (Network Attached Storage) that plugged right into the current AD network infrastructure. We Installed the Synology DS718+ with 10GB WD RED, sufficient to back up the entire systems at the Studio. The NAS was also set to back up files every second. This way important files are backed-up almost instantly there by creating a backup in case of an event. The NAS also supports a Sharing files seamlessly across multiple platforms whether it's Windows, macOS, and Linux.
Studio Head, Henry said; “We never knew that our important files could be this safe and at the same time retrieval has been made seamless”
