AWS EC2 Instance Backup
With NAKIVO Backup & Replication, you can easily create AWS EC2 instance backups. NAKIVO Backup & Replication protects entire AWS EC2 instances and performs forever-incremental backups, which transfer only changed data to your backup repository. You can keep your AWS EC2 backup anywhere — the backup repository can be located in the same Amazon EC2 region, in a different region, or even at your office or home.
For each backup, you can save up to 1,000 recovery points and, using the GFS backup rotation scheme, rotate them on a daily, weekly, monthly, and yearly basis. In addition, you can ensure that your AWS EC2 instances are always backed up by protecting an entire Amazon EC2 region or account. This way, all new AWS EC2 instances that are created in or moved to the region or account are automatically added to your backup jobs and stay protected.
Application-aware EC2 Instance Backup
NAKIVO Backup & Replication performs application-aware backup of Windows-based and Linux-based AWS EC2 instances. NAKIVO Backup & Replication supports Exchange, Active Directory, MS SQL, Oracle, and other applications and databases running inside AWS EC2 instances that you back up. Using the Application-aware mode, NAKIVO Backup & Replication ensures that application and database data is always consistent.
NAKIVO Backup & Replication automatically deduplicates all backups across an entire backup repository. On top of that, deduplicated blocks are compressed to ensure that the least amount of space is used by the backup repository.
Even in the cloud, your backups can be damaged, accidentally deleted, or become unavailable. Backup Copy jobs provide an easy way to create and maintain copies of your AWS EC2 instance backups. You can schedule Backup Copy jobs, send copies to different regions, accounts, or to your office or home, copy an entire backup repository or only selected backups, or even set a different backup retention policy for your backup copies – whatever your business needs suggest.
NAKIVO Backup & Replication can use compression and traffic reduction techniques to speed up data transfer. On average, this results in a network load reduction of 50% and a data transfer acceleration of 2X when running backup across WAN.
Instant Granular Recovery
With NAKIVO Backup & Replication, you can instantly recover files, Microsoft Exchange objects, and Microsoft Active Directory objects directly from compressed and deduplicated AWS EC2 Instance backups. You can browse, search, and recover files and application objects within the product’s Web interface, without recovering a full AWS EC2 instance first. This feature is purely agentless and works out of the box for both Windows-based and Linux-based instances.
AWS EC2 Instance Recovery
If a backed up AWS EC2 instance is accidentally damaged or deleted, you can recover the instance from its backup in just a few clicks. Your backup repository can be located anywhere – in the same Amazon region, in a different Amazon region, or in your office. The instance will be recovered in exactly the same state as it was during the backup and will appear in the region that you select for recovery.
HTTP APIs for Automation
HTTP APIs enable you to automate and orchestrate instance backup, replication, and recovery. APIs have been designed so that even non-developers can easily use them to integrate NAKIVO Backup & Replication with monitoring, automation, and orchestration solutions for reducing time spent on data protection management and decreasing data protection costs.
