Built-In Network Acceleration for Faster Backups and Replicas

The Transporter

Network Acceleration in NAKIVO Backup & Replication relies on a pair of Transporters. One Transporter is automatically deployed with a full solution installation. The Transporter is the built-in service that performs all data protection and recovery tasks.

How It Works

Enable Network Acceleration by installing a second Transporter locally or at the remote site where the target repository is located. The source Transporter will read, compress and optimize the data before sending it to the target Transporter.
