NAKIVO Backup and Replication Free Edition

Get started fast. Faster than anything you have tried.

It takes 2 clicks and 60 seconds to install your new VM backup and replication solution. The rest of the product is that simple as well: because the Free Edition is so intuitive, you are already an expert. With the Free Edition, you just need a few seconds to create a new ad hoc backup job and protect your live running VMs. The backup includes all VM disks and configuration files, so you'll have everything you need for a full recovery.

Back up and archive ad hoc. Locally, remotely and to cloud.

With the Free Edition you can back up and archive live running VMs ad hoc whether to make a copy before changing a VM, save data for long term storage, or to prevent unintentional data loss before VM decommissioning. NAKIVO Backup & Replication supports live Exchange, Active Directory, MS SQL, Oracle, and other applications so all your backups are always consistent. You can back up locally over LAN, remotely over WAN, and even reach Dropbox - an easy-to-use, secure, and cost effective cloud storage solution - and keep your important backups offsite, out of harm's reach.

Save storage space. Built-in de-duplication and compression are there to help.

The amount of data that you manage increases on a daily basis, and so do your backups, occupying expensive and production-needed space. The Free Edition automatically de-duplicates backup data across entire repository keeping only unique blocks of data. The de-duplicated blocks are then compressed to reduce space utilization even further. This combination results in up to a 30X storage space reduction for backup. The backup occupies only a trivial amount of storage, yet is a saver when you need your data back.

Recover your VMs. When you need them, at any time, and from anywhere.

The next-gen, Web 2.0 UI of the Free Edition enables managing all aspects of data protection at any time and from anywhere, even from a tablet. Built specifically for virtualized environments, NAKIVO Backup & Replication Free Edition is designed to recover your VMs in the fastest and most efficient way. Should you need your VMs back, you can recover quickly and easily, without any disruptions to your business.

Copy and migrate VMs. Easy, fast, and in all-direction.

NAKIVO Backup & Replication Free Edition enables you to migrate and copy VMs between hosts and storage devices, even if they are located on standalone hosts, managed by different vCenters, or not even connected to each other.
