Optimal Data Protection with NAKIVO

Build a Robust Backup Appliance

Install the NAKIVO solution on ReadyNAS to combine an advanced backup software with powerful hardware capable of protecting virtual, physical, cloud and SaaS environments. The backup appliance provides data backup, recovery, replication, deduplication and compression.


Ensure Ransomware Resilience

Protect data stored on the ReadyNAS backup appliance from modification or deletion through ransomware infections by enabling immutability. You can also implement advanced encryption and role-based access control to prevent tampering by unauthorized users.

Automate Disaster Recovery Sequences

You can set custom disaster recovery (DR) workflows using the ReadyNAS backup software. The Site Recovery feature allows you to create and automate DR sequences including network mapping, source VM shutdown, failback, failover and more. Test these preset workflows and initiate them quickly in case of a disaster.

Eliminate a Single Point of Failure

Store backups on ReadyNAS independently from production environments or keep backups onsite for quick recovery. You can also send backup copies offsite or to cloud storage such as Amazon S3, Wasabi, Azure Blob and Backblaze B2 directly from NAS disks. The solution also allows you to send backups to other S3-compatible storage to save on costs and improve transfer times. Moreover, backups can be stored on tape for long-term retention to ensure data availability.

Restore Backup Data Instantly

Boot entire machines directly from backups stored on the ReadyNAS backup appliance using the Flash VM Boot feature. You can also perform granular recovery to restore individual files and app objects to their original locations or to custom destinations without recovering full VMs.

Set Up Automated Data Protection Tasks

The NAKIVO solution provides several automation features allowing you to run data protection workflows automatically. Schedule tasks using the Calendar dashboard to prevent overlaps, use Policy-Based Data Protection to back up workloads that fit specific criteria or run jobs one after the other with the job chaining feature.

Optimize Performance and Storage Use

Send backups directly to NAS disks by bypassing the limitations of SMB and NFS network protocols. Benefit from LAN-Free Data Transfer, Network Acceleration and Advanced Bandwidth Throttling to further offload your production networks. You can also reduce the size of your backups using compression and deduplication.
