Customer Stories

2022 was a year of storytelling, and there are so many outstanding Sync stories to tell. From inspired content creators like Juan Salazar making magical musical moments to large-scale government enterprises like PortsToronto keeping cities moving to sustainable technology companies like Re-Nuble saving the planet, people are changing the world with Sync and making it known.

Showcasing these stories was a priority for us in 2022, so we embarked on a mission to interview our customers, create case studies, and give it all a home. Read all the case studies here, and if you have a story to tell, let us know. We’d love to feature you!

Infrastructure – Did you know your data in Sync is stored and replicated across multiple data centre locations with automated failover? Did you know we utilize enterprise grade storage arrays, including Seagate’s Exos JBOD SAS storage systems, measured at the Petabyte level? We really mean it when we say your data is safe with Sync!

We continued to scale our data centers in 2022, with significant investments in storage capacity to meet demand, and to keep way ahead of the supply chain. Beyond hardware, our DevOps and Engineering teams upgraded our monitoring and alert dashboards, implemented real time system status updates, and continued upgrades to our software stack. All to help deliver world-class performance, reliability, and uptime.

SOC-3 – For those in regulated industries, using the cloud requires third-party validation, trust, and compliance. That’s why we’re happy to announce that Sync successfully completed a System and Organization Controls (SOC) 3 audit in 2022.

Our new features happen because of feedback from you. We love hearing what you have to say, so feel free to provide more any time!
