Instant Object Recovery for Microsoft Active Directory
in NAKIVO Backup & Replication


Microsoft Active Directory is one of the most business-critical applications, so every minute of downtime can lead to significant disruption to operations. With Instant Object Recovery, the needed recovery point can be accessed anytime by multiple users simultaneously, even if this point is currently used in a recovery workflow. The feature works over LAN/WAN, allowing instant access even to offsite repositories.


More Recovery Options

Recover the Microsoft Active Directory organizational units, users, groups, contacts, computers, volumes, printers or any of these combinations within seconds directly from backups.

Object Search and Browsing

Browse Microsoft Active Directory objects across backed-up databases. Or enter the object’s name in the search box to find what you need with one click. The solution stores all information about Microsoft Active Directory containers, objects and their attributes. Choose the object and view detailed content directly from the NAKIVO Backup & Replication interface.

Flexible Recovery

Instantly recover Microsoft Active Directory objects to the original location or export objects to a local folder or CIFS share. You can also specify the overwrite behavior for recovered objects and other settings depending on the type of objects selected.
