Fast and Reliable AWS EC2 Backup

NAKIVO Backup & Replication allows you to secure your AWS EC2 data from corruption, accidental deletion, ransomware, or disaster in an efficient and automated manner. You can back up your EC2 instances to the same AWS region, to a different AWS region, or to your own datacenter.

Any files, application objects, or even entire AWS instances can be restored from a duplicated backup, ensuring that your business-critical information remains accessible. AWS EC2 backup in NAKIVO Backup & Replication is designed to deliver maximum convenience, flexibility, and reliability without breaking your data protection budget.

Incremental AWS EC2 Backup

NAKIVO Backup & Replication performs incremental EC2 backups, transferring only changed data to your backup repository. This allows you to boost EC2 backup performance and saves storage space.

Universal AWS EC2 Backup

You can keep your AWS EC2 backups anywhere — your backup repository can be located in the same Amazon EC2 region, in a different region, or even at your office or home.

Application-Aware AWS EC2 Backup

NAKIVO Backup & Replication runs application-aware backup of Windows-based and Linux-based AWS EC2 instances, ensuring that application and database data is always consistent.

AWS EC2 Backup Archival

With NAKIVO Backup & Replication, you can save up to 1,000 recovery points, rotating them on a daily, weekly, monthly, and yearly basis in accordance with the GFS system.

AWS EC2 Backup Automation

NAKIVO Backup & Replication provides multiple options for AWS EC2 backup automation. You can set up backup policies that can protect instances matching certain criteria (name, size, tag, etc.). Once your policy is created, NAKIVO Backup & Replication can scan the infrastructure and add new matching instances to the relevant job automatically.

You can also protect an entire Amazon EC2 region or account, which means that new AWS EC2 instances created in or moved to the region or account are automatically protected.

NAKIVO Backup & Replication can be integrated with monitoring, automation, and orchestration solutions through an HTTP API in order to further reduce time spent on data protection management while decreasing data protection costs.

Backup Size Reduction

To reduce AWS EC2 instance backup size, NAKIVO Backup & Replication automatically skips swap files, which would otherwise be processed, transferred and stored, taking up valuable server space. The product automatically deduplicates all backup data across an entire repository, ensuring that only unique data blocks are stored. The deduplicated blocks are compressed and, therefore, occupy as little space as possible. Together, these data reduction technologies significantly reduce the backup repository space occupied by AWS EC2 instance backups.

Backup Copy

Even in the cloud, your backups can be damaged, get 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 choose to maintain an exact (mirrored) copy of your backup repository in a target location, fine-tune which backups should be copied, how, and when, or automate your backup copy jobs with policies.

Network Acceleration

NAKIVO Backup & Replication can use compression and traffic reduction techniques to speed up data transfer. On average, this results in a 50% network load reduction and 2X faster data transfer when running backups across WAN.

AWS EC2 Instance Recovery

If an AWS EC2 instance is accidentally damaged or deleted, you can recover the instance from a backup in just a few clicks. Your backup repository can be located anywhere – in the same Amazon region, in a different Amazon region, or on-premises, outside the cloud. The instance can be recovered in its exact state at the time of backup, and is restored to whichever region you select for recovery. You can also instantly recover files and application objects directly from deduplicated and compressed AWS EC2 instance backups, without first recovering the full AWS EC2 instance.

AWS EC2 Backup Appliance Based on Your NAS

Create a high-performance AWS EC2 backup appliance by installing NAKIVO Backup & Replication directly on a QNAP, Synology, ASUSTOR, NETGEAR, or Western Digital NAS device. The appliance combines backup software, backup hardware, data deduplication, backup storage, and a backup-to-cloud tool for superior AWS EC2 data protection.
