Improved Recovery Capabilities

Disaster Recovery Orchestration

With NAKIVO Backup & Replication’s Site Recovery functionality, you can create automated workflows to streamline your disaster recovery activities across multiple sites. Perform planned failover, emergency failover, failback, as well as data center migration in a single click. Create a single recovery workflow for an entire organization, or create multiple workflows for individual departments, branch offices, etc. Built into your VM backup solution, Site Recovery can minimize downtime and prevent the loss of revenue with the lowest TCO.

Unprecedented Performance

NAKIVO Backup & Replication delivers the highest levels of performance for VM backup, replication, and recovery. Furthermore, the product also prevents your backup operations from taking up all of the available bandwidth. With Advanced Bandwidth Throttling, you can set global or job-specific rules to limit bandwidth consumption, offloading busy networks and speeding up business-critical applications. Direct SAN Access and Hot Add can also offload your networks, while significantly increasing data transfer speeds. Network Acceleration applies compression and traffic reduction techniques to allow a network load reduction of up to 50% and a 2X data transfer speed boost.

Automation and Integration
Usability and Convenience

Efficient Data Size Reduction

By default, all VM backup jobs are incremental and only transfer changed data, which helps save space in the target repository. NAKIVO Backup & Replication automatically deduplicates VM backups at the block level, in addition to compressing each block to minimize the space occupied even further. Unnecessary swap data is automatically skipped during backups. Along with these features, which deliver up to 10X storage space savings, NAKIVO Backup & Replication supports industry-standard deduplication appliances such as NEC HYDRAstor and Dell/EMC Data Domain, allowing for enterprise-grade deduplication ratios.

Instant Data Recovery

NAKIVO Backup & Replication allows you to instantly restore entire VMs, any application objects, and files of Windows-based or Linux-based VMs. The granular recovery is performed directly from compressed and deduplicated backups, sparing you the time and overhead of a full-scale restore. With Instant File Recovery to Source, you can recover individual files to the original VM or a custom location. For reliable protection of multi-hypervisor environments, NAKIVO Backup & Replication includes Cross-Platform Recovery, which allows for the easy export and recovery of VM backups across virtualization platforms.

Enhanced Reliability
Usability and Convenience

High Reliability

With NAKIVO Backup & Replication, you can save your VM backups locally and offsite, or send them to public clouds. You can also create and maintain copies of your backups in one or multiple locations, following the 3-2-1 backup rule. NAKIVO Backup & Replication can near-instantly verify your VM backups and replicas by sending you email reports with screenshots of test-recovered VMs. The reliability extends to the product’s configuration as well: NAKIVO Backup & Replication automatically backs up its own configuration, including inventory, jobs, schedules, preferences, etc., and stores self-backups in the available backup repositories. If the VM or physical machine running NAKIVO Backup & Replication fails, you can install a new instance and have all of the previous settings restored in just a few clicks.

10,000+ companies worldwide rely on NAKIVO Backup & Replication to protect and recover their environments
