Efficient, Quick and Secure Backups to the Cloud

Direct Backups to Cloud

Send backups and backup copies directly to Amazon S3, Wasabi Hot Cloud Storage, Backblaze B2, Azure Blob or other S3-compatible object storage. The NAKIVO solution protects virtual, physical and cloud environments including:

Advanced Storage Tiering

Eliminate a single point of failure and ensure data availability by sending backup copies to the cloud. Keep backups onsite for quick recovery and use backups kept in cloud storage in case local repositories are not available. The job chaining feature allows you to automatically send backup copies to public cloud repositories as soon as a backup is successfully completed.

Additional Ransomware Protection

Protect backups against new ransomware infections by making recovery points immutable. Enable immutability in Amazon S3, Wasabi, Backblaze B2 , Azure Blob or other S3-compatible storage platforms for a specified period to prevent modification or encryption by ransomware. No one, not even the root user, can lift or change the immutability period.

Fast VM and Server Recovery

Power on your VMs and physical machines directly from cloud backups. Instantly run VMs on target hosts with Flash VM Boot and reduce your recovery time objectives (RTO). You can also recover physical Windows and Linux servers/workstations in mere minutes as VMware vSphere VMs with P2V Recovery.

Powerful Granular Recovery

Quickly recover individual files and folders as well as objects in applications such as Microsoft Exchange Server, Active Directory and SQL Server. You can easily find the objects you need using the advanced search tool and restore them to their original location or to a different machine.

Reliable Workflow Automation

Streamline routine activities and avoid overlaps by scheduling data protection tasks using the Calendar dashboard. Automatically back up workloads based on specified criteria using the Policy-Based Data Protection feature.

S3-Compatible Storage Support

Store your backup data in private or public clouds that employ the S3 API. Make recovery points immutable to ensure protection from ransomware. You can also improve data transfer and save on costs by choosing the S3-compatible object storage that best fits your budget and requirements.

Centralized Management for the Cloud

Manage all data protection activities from a single web-based interface and access your data in the cloud anytime and from anywhere. Simply add repositories to the supported cloud destinations, choose the source machines and run the backups.

Leverage the Power of Cloud Backups with NAKIVO’s Solution

Follow the 3-2-1-1 Backup Rule

Eliminate a single point of failure by implementing the 3-2-1-1 backup strategy:

Create at least 3 copies of your data.
Store backups on 2 different media.
Keep 1 of the copies offsite or in the cloud.
Make 1 copy of your backups immutable.

Enable Backup Immutability

Protect your backups from ransomware infections by enabling immutability in Amazon S3, Wasabi Hot Cloud Storage, Backblaze B2, Azure Blob or other S3-compatible object storage. Immutable data cannot be modified or encrypted and no user can shorten or remove the specified retention period.

Automate Data Protection Workflows

NAKIVO Backup & Replication includes different features that allow you to automate your data protection activities with minimal to no manual intervention. Schedule tasks using the Calendar dashboard to prevent overlaps. Automatically back up specific workloads by adding preset settings with the Policy-Based Data Protection functionality. Use job chaining to run workflows one after the other.


Verify Your Backups

Ensure the integrity of your backups with the Instant Verification feature from NAKIVO. The solution can either take a screenshot of the OS of a booted VM or test-recover a VM and check the availability of hypervisor tools if installed. The verification results are displayed in the solution’s interface or sent directly to your email address.

Optimize Backup Storage Use

NAKIVO’s solution allows you to run incremental backups saving only changed data blocks to backup storage. Flexible retention policies help minimize storage space consumption while maximizing the number of recovery points you can store. Reduce the size of your backups even more with three levels of data compression that provide a balance between space saving and CPU usage.
