What You Get with Advanced Backup Solution from NAKIVO
Reliable Hyper-V Backup
NAKIVO Backup & Replication captures the entire VM during backup, including all disks and configuration files to ensure that the VM is available immediately after recovery. Back up Hyper-V VMs in the app-aware mode to ensure that data in applications such as Microsoft Exchange, Active Directory, and SQL is transactionally consistent.
Advanced Backup Tiering
Create multiple copies of your business-critical backups to eliminate a single point of failure and ensure an additional level of data safety. Store them in immutable local storage, on CIFS/NFS shares or send backup copies offsite, to NAS, cloud (Amazon, Wasabi, Azure Blob) or tape.
Instant Backup Verification
Ensure that your critical VMs can be successfully recovered from backups. Enable instant verification after each successful backup to automatically test that VMs are bootable. The solution boots the VM’s OS and sends you the screenshot or a report without any action from your side.
Immediate Granular Recovery
Instantly restore individual files, folders and application objects from backups or backup copies without recovering the entire VM. Search needed items in backups using the web-based dashboard and recover them to the original or custom location in seconds.
The solution allows you to perform incremental backups and relies on Microsoft’s Resilient Change Tracking (RCT) technology to increase the speed and efficiency of the process. For further space savings, enable swap data exclusion and compression.
Effective Data Transfer
Shrink backup windows and reduce network congestion with Network Acceleration. You can also control network bandwidth to limit its usage during working hours.
Easily schedule backups using the Calendar dashboard and set up backup policies to protect your Hyper-V VMs based on VM name, size, location and other criteria. To reduce administrative overhead even more, link jobs to run one after another and integrate the solution with third-party tools via HTTP APIs.

Maintain Data Compliance with NAKIVO Backup & Replication
Data Compliance Requirements
Retain data without alteration or deletion for a mandated period.
Store data in multiple locations with different security requirements.
Encrypt and secure data from unauthorized access.
Use multiple recovery options for different scenarios.
Safely dispose of data after the mandated retention period.
Enhance Data Compliance for Microsoft Hyper-V
- Flexible retention
With up to 4,000 recovery points for each VM, you can easily roll back to the specific point. Retain Microsoft Hyper-V backup data for as long as required by regulators using the GFS rotation scheme.
- Backup automation
Routine backup activities can be automated to ensure that no data is overlooked.
- No single point of failure
Automate the creation of backup copies and store them locally, in a public cloud (Amazon S3, Wasabi, Azure Blob) or on tape.
- Ransomware resilience
Backups stored in the cloud and local Linux-based repositories can be made immutable for as long as you need.
- Limited backup access
Enable two-factor authentication (2FA) to prevent unauthorized access to backups and data protection activities. Apply the principle of least privilege by setting the role-based access control (RBAC) for employees.
- Backup data encryption
Use Advanced Encryption Standard (AES) 256 to keep Hyper-V server backup data secure over WAN and throughout the retention period.
- Simplified eDiscovery
Search and browse individual files and application objects in backups via the web-based management console. Instantly restore items from backups, with all the permissions restored.
Frequently Asked Questions
How does backup for Hyper-V work?
This is an agentless solution, meaning that the solution creates backups at the virtualization level (rather than the guest OS level) and captures virtualization disk contents and configuration files. With this type of backup, you can also create incremental backups, saving only changed data volumes (increments) to the backup repository. To improve backup speed, the solution relies on Microsoft’s native Resilient Change Tracking (RCT) technology that automatically tracks all data changes.
Can I back up a Hyper-V cluster?
You can create backups and replicas of Microsoft Hyper-V virtual machines, easily adding entire clusters to your inventory with just a few clicks. Track Hyper-V VMs that migrate between cluster nodes to ensure that you always have their backups and/or replicas.
How do I start using NAKIVO Backup for Hyper-V?
Start by downloading the Free Trial or reach out to our sales department for more information on custom demos, personalized quotes and assistance with deploying the solution.
Can I protect mixed environments?
Absolutely. Along with Microsoft Hyper-V backup and recovery, you can protect:
• VMware vSphere VMs
• VMware Cloud Director VMs and vApps
• Microsoft Hyper-V VMs
• Nutanix AHV VMs
• Amazon EC2 instances
• Windows server and workstation
• Linux server and workstation
• Oracle RMAN
• NFS/CIFS file shares
