Active Solutions, one of the largest data storage providers in Sri Lanka, was felicitated by Synology Inc. in recognition of their 15-year partnership as a Distributor for Synology products in the island, at a special event held in Colombo recently.

A special award celebrating the long-standing partnership between the two companies was handed over by Mike Shay – Sales Manager of Synology Inc. to Ahmed Shaheer – CEO of Active Solutions. Mike Shay also conducted a special training session outlining the new features of the latest Synology products to resellers gathered at the event.

Active Solutions was formed in the year 2003 and was nominated as the Distributor in Sri Lanka for all Synology products in 2004. The Synology Network-Attached Storage (NAS) marketed by the company enables organisations to store large amounts of data over a network in a safe, secure manner. Active Solutions provides a wide array of related services including data recovery in the rare occurrence of a device crashing. Over the years, the company’s portfolio of Synology clients has grown rapidly with the addition of a diverse range of organisations such as hospitals, TV stations, insurance companies, blue chip companies as well as small and medium-sized businesses. 

Founded in 2000, Synology is a Taiwan-based technology company that creates Network-Attached Storage (NAS), IP surveillance solutions, and network equipment to help transform the way users manage data, conduct surveillance, and manage networks in today’s cloud era.

Addressing the gathering, Active Solutions CEO Ahmed Shaheer stated, “Synology is clearly a world-class company that offers the latest in data storage technology to Sri Lankan customers. We are proud to be recognised in this manner having worked closely with them for the past 15 years and look forward to building on these ties for years to come. Safe, reliable and secure data storage is a vital aspect of any organisation, irrespective of its size, and especially for certain industries in today’s fast-paced world where information needs to be at your fingertips. Given such a backdrop, it is important that organisations only work with companies that have years of experience, proven expertise and reliable after-sales services for the products they are selling. Active Solutions is a company that easily meets all these requirements and our impressive track record certainly proves this fact.”
