Complete Data Protection Solution at Your Fingertips
There are only two components needed to create a powerful, reliable, and versatile backup appliance: a QNAP NAS device and NAKIVO Backup & Replication. By deploying the solution on a NAS device, you get a combination of the outstanding capabilities of QNAP NAS and the exceptional reliability of NAKIVO Backup & Replication combined into a single powerful appliance comprising of the following:
- Robust backup hardware
- Complete backup software
- Reliable backup storage
- Global data deduplication tool
- Backup-to-cloud functionality
A QNAP NAS-based backup appliance can significantly improve the effectiveness of your backup processes across the board.
Increased Backup Speed
The backup process puts an extra load on your environment – source hosts, storage spaces, and networks are affected. The best way to offload your infrastructure resources is to ensure that the backups are completed in the shortest time possible. NAKIVO Backup & Replication provides great features that improve backup speed, such as incremental backups with CBT/RCT/CRT, LAN-free Data Transfer, and Network Acceleration. With QNAP NAS, NAKIVO Backup & Replication can write backups directly to NAS disks, bypassing the overhead of network protocols, such as NFS and CIFS. As a result, backup and replication workflows can be completed up to 2X faster!
Higher Storage Space Savings
NAKIVO Backup & Replication installed on a QNAP NAS helps save a significant amount of storage space for backups with its suite of features. The solution can skip swap files and partitions, thus, making your backups smaller. With Global Data Deduplication, duplicate data blocks are excluded from backups, so that only unique data blocks are kept in the backup repository. Additionally, each unique data block can then be automatically compressed even further, thus, minimizing the backup size.
Improved Reliability of Backup
Additional reliability is always a big advantage when it comes to business data protection. By installing NAKIVO Backup & Replication on a QNAP NAS, you can separate backup software and backup storage from your virtualized environment. This way, you free your infrastructure resources from backup workloads and ensure that you can recover your data anytime and anywhere, even if some of your servers are down. A backup appliance can be located onsite or offsite and can be easily moved to a new location in case of disaster with the ability to recover everything you’ve backed up near-instantly.
Easier Disaster Recovery
A QNAP NAS-based backup appliance has all the necessary components streamlining disaster recovery: backed-up data, feature-rich software, and reliable hardware. The appliance can be kept separate from your infrastructure. This allows you to be ready for instant recovery of VMs, files, as well as database and application objects such as Active Directory, Exchange, SQL, SharePoint, Oracle, etc., in case of disaster directly from compressed and deduplicated backups. NAKIVO Backup & Replication also has the in-built Site Recovery functionality, allowing for orchestration and automation of all your disaster recovery activities.
Instead of purchasing a separate backup server and a storage server for your backups, you can get a single QNAP NAS and use it to both process and store your backups. By doing this, you offload your virtual infrastructure from backup tasks and improve backup performance. And when it comes to enterprise-level data protection, the combination of NAKIVO Backup & Replication and QNAP NAS is at least 5X less expensive than purpose-built backup appliances with similar hardware and software characteristics.
