Comprehensive Virtual Machine Backup
NAKIVO Backup & Replication performs incremental backup of virtual machines. By copying only the changed data blocks to the repository, you can drastically shorten backup windows, save storage space, and offload production network.
With our VM backup solution, you can be certain that the entire VM is captured during backup. This includes all disks, system state, and configuration files, all ready for recovery at any time.
If you are wondering how to back up a virtual machine that has database or application data on it, our VM backup software can help you. With application-aware mode enabled, you can reliably back up Exchange, Active Directory, SQL, SharePoint, and Oracle data in a transactionally consistent manner.
NAKIVO Backup & Replication lets you create up to 1,000 recovery points, allowing you to recover your business data from any of these points. By using Grandfather-Father-Son retention policy, these points can be rotated on a daily, weekly, monthly, and yearly basis.

Improve VM Backup Performance
With LAN-Free Data Transfer mode enabled, our VM backup software can give your backup activities a significant boost. Additionally, Network Acceleration uses compression and traffic reduction techniques to further improve the speed by up to 2X and reduce the load on the network by up to 50%. You can also control the bandwidth consumption by your workflows with Advanced Bandwidth Throttling. This can be especially useful if you back up virtual machines during the busy working hours.
Reduce Storage Space Requirements
When you perform virtual machine backup, you always need to consider your repository space. This task becomes much easier with NAKIVO Backup & Replication. Global data deduplication removes duplicate data blocks from the backup repository, effectively saving your space. The data can also be compressed afterwards to further increase storage space savings by up to 10X. Our VM backup solution also has the in-built Exchange and SQL log truncation feature, allowing for deletion of cumbersome log files, providing even more storage space optimization.
Automate All VM Backup Processes
NAKIVO Backup & Replication alleviates the need to track every change in your virtual environment and manually edit your backup workflows. Our VM backup solution has a Policy-Based Data Protection functionality that can do all of the heavy lifting for you. With this feature, you can set up rule-based policies which allow the solution to automatically scan your infrastructure and add new VMs that match the policy rules to the relevant VM backup jobs. Policy rules can be based on the name of a VM, its tag, size, location, etc.
Eliminate a Single Point of Failure
When it comes to data protection, there is no such thing as “too secure”. With our VM backup software, you can copy your backups offsite or directly to the cloud with the Backup Copy functionality. This adds an additional layer of protection for your data, which is especially useful in cases when you cannot recover your original backup for some reason, such as due to hardware failure. This whole process does not affect production VMs, can be set up in a few minutes, and is customized according to your needs. Thanks to Job Chaining, the Backup Copy workflow can be configured to start automatically as soon as the original backup job finishes running.
Ensure Recoverability of Your VM Backups
A successful backup does not always mean that the data can be reliably recovered. This is not the case with NAKIVO Backup & Replication. After you back up a virtual machine, the solution can perform an instant verification by booting up the backup, taking a screenshot of the OS, and sending it to you via email. This feature can give you peace of mind without making you worry about the recoverability of your VMs.
Strengthen Your Data Protection Strategy
If your data protection strategy requires you to both back up and replicate your business-critical VMs, this can create an additional load on your production since both operations are snapshot-dependent. NAKIVO Backup & Replication allows you to avoid such redundancy. As an advanced VM backup solution, the software reduces the snapshot overhead and saves you time by creating identical copies of your VMs directly from the existing VM backups.
Reduce the Complexity of Your Backup Operations
Our VM backup solution has a number of features aimed at lessening the burden of managing your environments and workflows. The versatile scheduling system and calendar dashboard allow you to automatically start your workflows and easily manage them. The Global Search function can help to quickly find the necessary item or object, such as VM, in your environment and immediately perform a bulk action on the found item, like adding a VM to an existing workflow.
Increase Productivity by Offloading Your IT team
NAKIVO Backup & Replication can be installed in Multi-Tenancy mode, which allows you to create multiple isolated tenants within a single product deployment. This allows you to deliver Backup as a Service (BaaS) to your customers quickly and easily. All tenants can access a self-service portal and manage their VM backup activities with no input on your part.
