Immutable Storage

NAKIVO Backup & Replication allows you to use backup repositories that support immutability to prevent backup data encryption or corruption. Make recovery points immutable to protect them from encryption by ransomware while also eliminating the risk of accidental or intentional deletion and modification.

Safer Backups in Immutable Storage

Repository Types with Immutability

Use local and cloud repositories to store immutable recovery points:

Local Folder: Keep your data in local Linux-based repositories and apply immutability for an added layer of protection.
Cloud: Send your backups to Amazon S3, Wasabi, Backblaze B2 or Azure Blob cloud storage platforms. Enable immutability for ransomware resilience, ensuring that the backup data cannot be modified.

Hardened VA and AMI

Deploy NAKIVO Backup & Replication as a VA/AMI with built-in immutable Linux-based repositories. Directly apply immutability to backups and backup copies without prior configuration.

Hardened Virtual Appliance: Deploy the solution as a VA in VMware environments.
Hardened Amazon Machine Image: Deploy the solution in the Amazon EC2 cloud as a pre-configured AMI.

Immutability with NAKIVO

Create immutable backups and backup copies to prevent the data from overwriting, modification or deletion. The write-once-read-many (WORM) model guarantees data recoverability in case of a disaster since immutable backups stored are safe from ransomware attacks and other malicious activities.
