This post applies to CloudBerry Backup for Synology 1.6 and later.
If you use Synology NAS devices, we would like to bring to your notice a new Cloudberry Backup for Synology feature — support of Google Cloud. It is a business-ready “brother” of Google Drive which can store your backups along with other data. Here you can find details.

Configure Backup to Google Cloud Storage
- Click Settings button on the toolbar to manage backup accounts and click Add button there
- Choose GoogleCloud storage type. Then select an authentication type for your Google Cloud storage: Access and Secret keys or OAuth 2.0 (Service Account or Installed Application). Learn more about Google Cloud authentication at Explaining Google Cloud Storage Authentication.
- Specify a Display Name (any name for your backup account) and use valid credentials:
a) for Access and Secret key - you need to specify both keys.
b) for OAuth 2.0 (Service Account) - you need to specify Project ID, Service account email and a private key (.p12)
c) for OAuth 2.0 (Installed Application) - you need to specify a Project ID then you will be prompt to allow CloudBerry Backup application to access your account and get a authentication token that you will need to copy and paste in a popup dialog when registering the Google Cloud account in CloudBerry Backup.
- Then you will be able to select created Google Cloud account as a target for your backups
Note: CloudBerry Backup supports only Synology NAS system with processors Marvell ARM (Armada*) and Intel* CPU type. And data storage platform DSM up to version 6 inclusive.
