The solution’s extensive functionality provides outstanding backup performance, optimises resource usage, and ensures uninterrupted data availability, even during critical incidents. Here is an overview of the key features in NAKIVO Backup & Replication.

Efficient Backup

NAKIVO Backup & Replication uses compression, deduplication, log file truncation, and block change tracking technologies to save storage space without compromising backup quality. You can choose to store backups locally, on tape, or in any cloud that supports running VMs or instances to ensure critical data is accessible and recoverable at all times. NAKIVO Backup & Replication allows you to create application-aware incremental backups of VMware, Hyper-V, Nutanix AHV VMs; Windows- and Linux-based physical machines; Microsoft 365 data; and Oracle databases.

Instant Data Recovery

You can achieve instant data recovery using NAKIVO Backup & Replication, which supports full and granular recovery options for backup data. With Flash VM Boot, you can recover a full VMware or Hyper-V VM by running it directly from the backup with a few clicks, saving time in a disaster situation. Another option is using instant granular recovery to quickly recover individual files or folders to their original location, or to any other location of your choosing. The solution makes it possible to instantly recover individual Microsoft 365 objects, such as Exchange emails, Active Directory users, and SQL databases, directly from deduplicated backups. NAKIVO Backup & Replication also enables you to easily recover data across different platforms as well as from physical to virtual environments.

Hardened Ransomware Protection

With NAKIVO Backup & Replication, you can make backup data immutable for as long as you need. This helps prevent ransomware from encrypting your data and saves you the pain of dealing with potential ransomware attacks on your business. You can make backups and backup copies sent to Amazon S3 buckets Linux-based local repositories immutable for a specified period to ensure they’re protected from ransomware. It’s also possible to deploy NAKIVO Backup & Replication as a pre-configured virtual appliance running on Ubuntu Server and enable immutability for backups and backup copies sent to a repository deployed as part of the VA.

Disaster Recovery

VM Replication: NAKIVO Backup & Replication provides a fast, reliable way to replicate virtual machines to a remote location to ensure reliable protection and a near-instant recovery of your virtual environment. When disaster strikes, simply power on the replicas and have your VMs up and running in no time. You can easily replicate VMs directly from backups to reduce the load on the host, free up valuable resources, and save time. And to ensure recoverability, you can instantly verify your VM replicas and get a report with screenshots of test-recovered machines.

Site Recovery: The solution allows you to achieve continuous delivery of IT services, even in the event of significant disasters. The built-in Site Recovery functionality allows you to create disaster recovery workflows and perform scheduled non-disruptive recovery testing, planned failover, emergency failover, failback, and datacenter migration with one click.

Application Support: To ensure data consistency, NAKIVO Backup & Replication includes support for Microsoft Exchange, Active Directory, SQL, Oracle, and SharePoint along with other applications and databases.
