Why Choose NAKIVO Backup & Replication for Backup to Amazon S3
Back up directly to Amazon S3
NAKIVO Backup & Replication allows you to send backups of your VMs and physical servers directly to Amazon S3. After the first full backup is sent to the cloud, you can save time and resources and perform incremental backups, where only changed blocks of data are backed up. Backup to Amazon S3 is a great destination for daily backups of terabytes of data that can be accessed at any time and from anywhere. When performing large backups, use Job scheduling to organize your backup activities to avoid job overlaps and network congestion.
Recover full VMs and servers
Once your backups are in the cloud, you have multiple recovery options to choose from. For the fastest recovery, boot VMs directly from compressed backups with Flash VM Boot and resume your workflow in seconds. Or perform a full recovery of your VMs and physical servers directly from Amazon S3. You can also recover Windows and Linux physical servers to VMware or Hyper-V VMs while preserving data consistency.
Automate data protection
Automate performing and sending backups and backup copies of your VMs and physical servers to the Amazon S3 repository with rule-based policies based on the VM’s name, size, tag, location, or a combination of those parameters. Your infrastructure is then scanned regularly for changes, and when a new VM matches the policies, it is automatically added to the corresponding job.
Advanced Backup Copy
Diversifying data backup media and locations is your best bet against a single point of failure. With Backup to Amazon S3, you can eliminate a single point of failure by sending a backup copy to the cloud or copying your backups from the cloud to tape or disk. To save storage space, you can copy only the most important backups and their recovery points.
Optimized storage space
NAKIVO Backup & Replication provides built-in data compression for maximum space savings in the cloud. Choose from three compression levels: lower compression levels are faster with a smaller CPU load while maximal space savings are more resource-intensive. Whichever level you choose, you can perform the recovery right from a compressed backup, without decompressing it first.
Recover individual files and objects
With Backup to Amazon S3, you can instantly recover individual files and folders back to their original location without initiating a full-scale recovery of a source machine. You can also restore application objects, including from Exchange, Active Directory, and SQL. You can recover the files and objects you need directly from compressed backups: just find the backup, choose the recovery point and start the process.
