Incremental Windows Server Backup
NAKIVO Backup & Replication performs incremental Windows server backup, which helps save time and storage resources. The software runs backup jobs using the proprietary change tracking method and transfers only changed blocks of data to the repository.
Application-Aware Windows Server Backup
NAKIVO Backup & Replication relies on the Microsoft’s Volume Shadow Copy Service to ensure that the data of applications and databases (Microsoft Exchange, SQL, Active Directory, SharePoint, Oracle, etc.) running on Windows Servers are backed up in a transactionally consistent state.
Secure Windows Server Backup
NAKIVO Backup & Replication can use AES 256‑bit encryption to protect Windows Server backups. The software transforms data into an unreadable cipher text which secures it from unauthorized access.
Higher Backup Performance
NAKIVO Backup & Replication makes it possible to improve backup performance with out-of-the-box features such as network acceleration, which speeds up data transfer over busy LAN and WAN networks.
Physical to Virtual
NAKIVO Backup & Replication can recover physical Windows Server machines to VMware and Hyper-V VMs. With the Physical to Virtual (P2V) functionality in place, you can easily perform a migration of your physical workloads to a virtual environment or simply make sure you'll be able to recover business-critical physical machines under any circumstances.
Schedule Backups for Maximum Efficiency
Run your Windows Server backup jobs on demand or set up a schedule to run as often as you need to meet shorter RPOs. Backing up entire Windows Servers can be a resource-intensive process, requiring you to run your backup jobs outside of business hours. NAKIVO Backup & Replication’s Calendar Dashboard allows you to schedule your Windows Server backup jobs so that there are no overlaps between them. The feature simplifies backup management in hybrid environments, providing you with a bird’s eye view of all your backup jobs.
Use Your Storage Space in a More Efficient Manner
In addition to running incremental Windows Server backups, NAKIVO Backup & Replication reduces backup size by deduplicating and compressing your Windows Server backups once they reach the repository. Thanks to deduplication, the software excludes duplicate data blocks and saves only unique chunks of data. Deduplicated data is then compressed to occupy even less space in the repository. The combination of these operations frees up significant amounts of storage space and saves you precious resources.
Control Your Bandwidth Usage
NAKIVO Backup & Replication provides you with the opportunity to control bandwidth consumption. If you need to run your Windows backup jobs during business hours, you can offload your network by setting global or per-job bandwidth throttling rules. This way, you decide how much bandwidth is used for backup and when. The Advanced Bandwidth Throttling feature is an effective tool that optimizes your Windows Server backup operations and helps ensure sufficient bandwidth for business-critical applications.
Reduce Storage Costs with Tape
Long-term data storage can be quite costly. This, however, is not the case if you choose tape as your storage medium. By copying your Windows Server backups to tape, you can significantly cut down storage costs and improve the reliability of your backups in general. NAKIVO Backup & Replication can also help easily manage your backups, tape devices, and tape cartridges, which in turn can greatly reduce the complexity of the data protection process.
