Ensure Data Consistency
Incremental, application-aware backups
Functional capabilities of NAKIVO Backup & Replication enable protection for both physical and hybrid environments.
More precisely, the Free Edition of our product provides a way for you to create free Windows Server backup in an application-aware mode. NAKIVO Backup & Replication relies on Microsoft’s Volume Shadow Copy Service, thus allowing you to ensure transactional consistency for the applications and databases (MS Exchange, SQL, Active Director, etc.) that are currently running on your Windows Server.
With that in mind, you can perform incremental backups, meaning that only changed blocks of data are transferred to the repository.
Improve the Reliability of Backups
Onsite, offsite, or to the cloud
Keeping a backup copy in a remote location is a wise practice to maintain. After all, you never know when a disaster might strike your primary site rendering the backups you store locally essentially useless.
With our free backup software for Windows Server, you can transfer a copy of your backup over WAN, thus storing your business-critical data remotely. Besides, you can send a copy of your backup to a public cloud, such as Azure or AWS.
With this in mind, you can rest assured that your backup data remains accessible even if an unpredictable event makes your onsite backups inaccessible.

Reduce Storage Space Usage
Global data deduplication and compression
To further reduce storage space consumption, our free backup software for Windows Server relies on the technology of deduplication and compression. Backup deduplication provides you with a way to exclude duplicate data blocks from the backup. Thus, only unique data blocks are transferred to the repository, allowing you to considerably reduce backup size. After that, data blocks are compressed in order to occupy even less space. Overall, these technologies can reduce storage space requirements by up to 30 times.
Instantly Recover Data
Single click to recover your data
Should you find yourself needing to recover a file or folder, there is no need to restore the entire physical server first. With our free Windows Server backup software in place, you can restore individual files directly from compressed and deduplicated backups; this also refers to application objects. Instant object recovery is enabled for MS Active Directory, Exchange, and SQL. You can either recover files back to the source or to a custom location. For further convenience, you may download them to your machine or send them via email. Naturally, this can save network resources, as well as time and resources.
Perform P2V Operations
Migration of physical workloads
Physical to Virtual (P2V) is another helpful feature of our free backup software for Windows Server. The first step in a P2V operation is to create a backup of your Windows Server. Then you can use the backup data to restore your Windows Server to either Hyper-V or VMware VM. Put differently, our functionality provides a way for you to migrate physical workloads to a virtual environment. This simplifies the process of data recovery in the event a disaster occurs.
High Backup Performance
You can easily optimize backup processes by enabling Network Acceleration, the in-built feature of NAKIVO Backup & Replication. By speeding up data transfer rates, this feature allows you to save network bandwidth, shorten backup windows, and offload your network.
With the free Windows Server backup software provided by NAKIVO Backup & Replication, you can rest assured that your backup data is safe. Relying on AES 256‑bit encryption algorithm, our solution transforms data into a cypher text that cannot be accessed by unauthorized parties.
Smaller Backup Size
With the technologies of data deduplication and compression, you can create a free small-sized Windows Server backup, helping you save on space and storage costs. You’ll be shocked to see your storage consumption reduced by up to 30 times!
With the Free Edition of NAKIVO Backup & Replication, your infrastructure always remains under your control. Keep managing data protection processes any place you find convenient, even on the go from a mobile device.
