Nutanix AHV Backup Solution Features

Incremental Nutanix AHV backups

Incremental Nutanix AHV backups

The solution uses the native change tracking technology from Nutanix to perform faster incremental backups. With incremental backups, you store only unique data blocks, which allows you to save on storage consumption and retain more recovery points.
Data consistency

Data consistency

Application-aware mode ensures data consistency in databases and applications like Microsoft SQL Server, Exchange Server and Active Directory. Using Nutanix’s native Guest Tools (NGT), NAKIVO’s solution freezes application operations and flushes all data to disk before starting the backup process.
Flexible retention settings

Flexible retention settings

Specify the number of recovery points you want to retain in the backup repository based on the grandfather-father-son (GFS) backup rotation scheme.
Various storage destinations

Various storage destinations

Store backups locally and send backup copies to public clouds (Amazon S3, Wasabi, Backblaze B2 and Azure Blob), tape, NAS, CIFS/NFS shares and deduplication appliances.
Ransomware protection

Ransomware protection

Apply immutability to backups in local Linux-based repositories and in public clouds like Amazon S3, Wasabi, Backblaze B2 and Azure Blob.
Instant granular recovery

Instant granular recovery

Restore individual files and application objects to the source or to a different location.
Full VM recovery

Full VM recovery

Recover entire Nutanix AHV virtual machines with all their data such as OS applications, configuration and system state.
Reduced storage consumption

Reduced storage consumption

Store light incremental backups in the compressed form for more storage space savings.
Network acceleration

Network acceleration

Shorten the backup window by increasing data transfer speed without affecting the product network in busy LAN or WAN with the Network Acceleration functionality.
Bandwidth throttling

Bandwidth throttling

Offload production networks during working hours by reducing bandwidth consumption of data protection processes.
LAN-free data transfer

LAN-free data transfer

Speed up data protection activities and offload the LAN network by reading data directly from the VM datastores and mounting VM snapshots as virtual disks.
Advanced encryption

Advanced encryption

Prevent unauthorized users from reading backup data by applying in-flight and at-rest encryption.
Role-based access control

Role-based access control

Assign specific roles and permissions to control unauthorized access and prevent modification or deletion of important data.
Two-factor authentication

Two-factor authentication

Add an extra layer of protection when logging in to your account by activating two-factor authentication.
Workflow automation

Workflow automation

Link tasks to run automatically one after the other using job chaining.

FAQ

How does NAKIVO back up Nutanix AHV virtual machines?

NAKIVO Backup & Replication is an agentless backup solution for virtual environments that delivers incremental, application-aware backups. For faster incremental backups, the solution can leverage the Nutanix Changed Regions Tracking (CRT) technology so that only the data blocks that have changed since the previous backup are sent to the backup repository without reading all the content on source VM disks.

Does the solution support live databases and applications?

Yes. With the application-aware mode, you can back up and recover data in applications and databases from Nutanix AHV VM backups. Application-aware backups ensure data consistency and that the data recovered can be used immediately, without additional configuration.

Does NAKIVO Backup & Replication protect Nutanix AHV data from ransomware?

There are several options that can help you safeguard your VMs and backup data from ransomware:
Implement the 3-2-1 rule: Create several backup copies and store them onsite, send them to the cloud (Amazon S3, Wasabi, Backblaze B2 and Azure Blob) or keep them in tape storage. By applying this rule, you eliminate a single point of failure.
Enable immutability: Make your Nutanix AHV backups immutable in a Linux-based local repository or apply immutability to backup copies stored in Amazon S3, Azure, Backblaze or Wasabi cloud. Once immutable, your data cannot be altered, deleted or encrypted by ransomware.
Create air-gapped backups: Copy backups directly to tape and keep them offline to prevent access or encryption.

What types of Nutanix AHV recoveries can I perform?

You can perform full and granular recoveries to restore the data you need without wasting time or resources. You can restore individual files and application objects from your Nutanix AHV backups without running a full recovery. You can also recover entire Nutanix AHV VMs using the recovery point you need.

Does the solution protect mixed environments?

VMware vSphere
VMware Cloud Director
