Key Benefits of Backup to Azure Blob Storage
Direct Backups to Azure Blob
Store different types of backups in Azure Blob including:
• VMware vSphere VMs
• VMware Cloud Director VMs and vApps
• Microsoft Hyper-V VMs
• Nutanix AHV VMs
• Windows servers and workstations
• Linux servers and workstations
Simply add your Azure Storage account to the solution’s inventory, create a repository, and start sending backups directly to Azure Blob.
Send backups and backup copies to different locations to eliminate a single point of failure. Keep backups onsite for quick recovery and send backup copies to cloud storage like Azure Blob to ensure data recoverability in case of a disaster. Use Job Chaining to automate the process and automatically create backup copies from successful backups.
Flexible Recovery Options
With the NAKIVO solution, you have varying recovery options. You can instantly boot VMs from backups or recover individual files, folders and objects of Microsoft applications (Active Directory, Exchange Server and SQL Server). You can also recover physical machines as VMware VMs in minutes with the P2V recovery feature.
Create data protection policies to automatically back up VMs that match the selected criteria. Schedule workflows by using the Calendar dashboard to avoid overlaps and save time.
Reduced Storage Consumption
Create incremental backups with NAKIVO Backup & Replication and copy only the changed blocks of data using native or NAKIVO proprietary change tracking technologies. These backups can be compressed to further minimize size and reduce storage space consumption.
Enable the immutability functionality in Azure Blob to make backups immutable for a specified period. This allows you to prevent unwanted modification or encryption by ransomware. The immutability period cannot be shortened, not even by the root user.
Powerful Web-Based Management
Gain complete oversight over your data protection activities for different types of workloads from a single web-based management console. Create workflows, automate tasks and monitor your infrastructure using the solution’s comprehensive interface.

Frequently Asked Questions
Why should I send backups to Azure Blob storage?
Azure Blob is a scalable and highly available cloud storage that ensures data accessibility from anywhere. You can use Azure Blob as a long-term storage for archiving and compliance purposes. Moreover, you can easily increase your storage capacity to accommodate your growing data needs.
What data types can I back up to Azure Blob?
The solution supports different environments including virtual, physical and cloud. You can back up VMware, Hyper-V and Nutanix AHV virtual machines, in addition to Amazon EC2 instances and Windows or Linux servers and workstations.
What is immutable storage?
Immutability can be enabled for blob containers in Azure to store backups in the immutable format using the write-once-read-many (WORM) model. Immutable data cannot be deleted, modified or encrypted by users or ransomware. You can use immutability for additional data protection of critical data and compliance.
How much data can I send to Azure Blob?
An Azure Blob repository in NAKIVO’s solution has a limit of 5 PB of backup data. Once that limit is reached, you can create a new repository to store more backup data.
