Active Directory Backup
on Windows Server

Perform seamless backup of your Active Directory data on the Windows Server and instantly recover your data at any time.

Key Features at a Glance

As a combination of services that manage permission and access to networked resources, Active Directory is one of the most valuable business applications on the market. The loss or corruption of AD data such as users, groups, applications, and more can lead to a variety of consequences, including IT services downtime and interrupted business continuity.

NAKIVO Backup & Replication can reliably back up AD objects and restore them at a moment's notice, preventing the loss of data and the halt of business-critical operations.

Improve Active Directory Backup Performance

Improve Active Directory Backup Performance

NAKIVO Backup & Replication can increase data transfer rates during Active Directory backup by up to 2X with the Network Acceleration feature. This helps significantly reduce network load, achieving much shorter backup windows.

Save Storage Space

Save Storage Space

Storage space expansion can be rather costly, especially when you need to regularly back up your databases and applications such as Active Directory. NAKIVO Backup & Replication successfully tackles this problem with the Global Data Deduplication feature. It allows for only unique data to be stored in the backup repository, which drastically reduces the space required for backups. The adjustable compression can increase your storage space savings even further.

Reduce the Load on Bandwidth

Reduce the Load on Bandwidth

Performing Active Directory backup during working hours can lead to your network becoming overloaded. This, in turn, can cause slowdowns in business processes. To avoid this issue, NAKIVO Backup & Replication has its own built-in Advanced Bandwidth Throttling. With this feature, you can set global rules to limit the bandwidth consumption for your backup jobs. This can also be done on a per-job basis.
