Job Chaining

Use the Job Chaining feature in NAKIVO Backup & Replication to configure a sequence of backup, replication, or recovery jobs. The completion of the first job automatically prompts the linked jobs to run after one another. The Job Chaining feature automates workflows and simplifies data protection administration.

Storage Tiering

Automate backup data tiering between different types of storage. Keep critical or more frequently accessed backups on faster storage onsite. Link backup copies to be triggered automatically to warm/cold storage targets. For example, configure automated sequences to send primary backups to local storage, weekly backup copies to secondary storage, and monthly copies to a public cloud.
