Key Benefits of Backup to Backblaze B2 Cloud Storage

Direct Backups to Backblaze B2

Send backups directly to Backblaze B2 storage to protect virtual, physical and cloud environments:

Seamless Backup Tiering

Store backups onsite for quick recovery and send backup copies to cloud storage like Backblaze B2 to ensure data recoverability if the primary backup is not available. The job chaining feature allows you to automatically create backup copies and send them to different offsite repositories.

Robust Ransomware Protection

Make backups stored in Backblaze B2 immutable to prevent modification or encryption by ransomware. Backup immutability uses the write-once-read-many (WORM) technology to lock recovery points for a specified period and cannot be lifted or shortened by any user.

Automated Workflows

Automate your data protection activities to avoid retention policy gaps and reduce manual tasks. Create custom schedules that fit your business requirements using the Calendar dashboard. Set rules with the Policy-Based Data Protection functionality to automatically protect machines that match your selected criteria.

Multiple Recovery Options

With the NAKIVO solution, you can choose the recovery option that best suits your needs:

  • Instantly boot entire VMs from cloud backups.
  • Recover individual files and objects in Microsoft applications like Exchange Server, Active Directory and SQL Server.

Key Benefits of Backup to Backblaze B2 Cloud Storage

Optimized Storage Space
