Cloud Backups for
Protect virtual, physical, cloud, SaaS, and mixed environments including:
Use application-aware mode to ensure that backup and replica data is consistent. The solution flushes the memory of applications and databases to the disk before taking a snapshot. This way, applications run smoothly after recovery without the need for any configurations and no data loss.
Free up storage space and reduce resource usage by conducting fast incremental backups and replicas, saving only changed data blocks to the repository. The solution also provides features to boost the performance of data protection activities and prevent network overload. You can restrict bandwidth consumption during working hours, use LAN-free data transfer to avoid performance degradation or integrate the solution with a deduplication appliance.
Advanced Cloud Mobility
Recover full VMs, individual files, folders and objects directly from backups in seconds. NAKIVO supports Microsoft Active Directory, Exchange Server and SQL Server, enabling you to search for and recover application objects directly from compressed backups.
Instantly verify that VM backups and replicas are recoverable. NAKIVO Backup & Replication automatically boots VMs with a turned-off network to check whether the OS is running. The solution then sends you an OS screenshot or a report by email. You can also view the results in the solution’s interface.
Personal data can be subject to strict compliance and audit requirements. The solution provides features to enhance the security of data protection activities with data encryption, 2FA and role-based access control. When it comes to storage and availability of data, use flexible retention policies to retain weekly, monthly and yearly backups of this type of data. Ensure that backups cannot be compromised or deleted by ransomware attacks or other users by storing data in immutable repositories locally or in the public cloud.
Fully automate your disaster recovery process for a variety of disaster scenarios. Configure automated workflows and then trigger instant failover/failback to an offsite replica with a single click.
Schedule workflows and prevent overlaps with the Calendar dashboard. Automate routine tasks by configuring custom rules to protect workloads that fit your specified criteria. Expand automation capabilities even more by integrating third-party solutions via HTTP API.
Unlock the Benefits of Data Backup for
Universities and Schools with NAKIVO
Eliminate a single point of failure
Benefit from advanced storage tiering and easily send backup copies to multiple locations to implement the 3-2-1 rule. Verify recoverability, configure disaster recovery workflows and use multiple recovery options to resume your IT operations with minimal to no downtime in case of a disaster.
Ensure regulatory compliance
Use advanced recovery point rotation schemes to guarantee that you meet compliance and auditing requirements in education. Reduce audit efforts with the Global Search feature and easily find the needed data across your backups and replicas.
Protect your data from ransomware
Store critical data backups in immutable repositories onsite or in the cloud. Ensure that no one can access or delete the data until the immutability period is over. You can also prevent unauthorized access to your data by configuring role-based access control (RBAC) and encrypting your data.
Optimize resource usage
Manage workflows from a centralized interface
Offload data protection tasks to different divisions or campuses. Create up to 1,000 isolated IT environments and distribute resources between them using the multi-tenant mode from NAKIVO. Tenants can manage data protection tasks within their environments using the Self-Service Portal while you maintain complete oversight.
