Set data transfer speed limits for your jobs
Why Use Bandwidth Throttling?
NAKIVO Backup & Replication was designed to transfer data at the maximum available speed, with the aim of completing VM backup, replication, and recovery jobs as soon as possible. However, if you run data protection jobs during business hours, your LAN and WAN networks may become overloaded. This could affect the performance of applications and degrade user experience (think of e-mails taking too long to be sent, extensive load times for websites, etc.). This is where the Bandwidth Throttling feature can help.
NAKIVO Backup & Replication allows you to set speed limits for your data protection jobs. This way, for example, you can prevent a VM backup job from consuming more than 50 MB/s.
How Does Bandwidth Throttling Work?
You can enable bandwidth throttling on a per-job basis for VM backup, backup copy, replication, and recovery jobs. All platforms (VMware, Hyper-V, and AWS) are supported. Just enter the desired speed limit in the job wizard, and the product will do the rest of the magic. For example, if you limit a backup copy job's speed to 7 MB/s, NAKIVO Backup & Replication will make sure that this limit is not surpassed when the job is running.
The Bandwidth Throttling feature of NAKIVO Backup & Replication is an effective means of optimizing backup operations and controlling your network traffic.
