Reliable Physical Backups with NAKIVO Backup & Replication

Robust and Reliable Backup

NAKIVO Backup & Replication can perform incremental, application-aware backups of Windows/Linux servers, PCs and laptops. Incremental means that the software copies only the data that has changed since the previous backup cycle (increments), which helps you save storage space and improve backup speed. The application-aware mode involves creating volume-level images to ensure the consistency of apps and databases, such as Microsoft Exchange, Active Directory, Microsoft SQL, SharePoint, Oracle Database, etc.

High Data Availability

NAKIVO Backup & Replication is a physical backup solution that allows you to keep at least three backup copies of your data (one on-premises and two offsite) to make sure it is recoverable in any disaster scenario. With NAKIVO Backup & Replication, you can keep a copy of your backups on local storage, in the cloud (Amazon S3, Azure or Wasabi), on NAS appliances, deduplication appliances or on tape cartridges. Even if your primary backup gets lost or corrupted, you can rest assured that your data is safe and accessible whenever you need it.

Multiple Recovery Options

There are several recovery options, each serving its specific purposes. First, you can restore an individual file or application object (Microsoft Exchange, Active Directory, Microsoft SQL) without recovering the entire machine where it is contained. Second, you can instantly recover your physical machine to a VMware VM (instant P2V) to resume workloads within minutes or test updates. And third, you can perform full recovery of a physical machine to a VMware VM (full P2V), with the virtual copy being ready for the production environment.


Resource Optimization

With Network Acceleration in place, you can shorten backup windows, reduce network load and boost backup performance by up to 2 times. In addition, Bandwidth Throttling allows you to control the bandwidth your physical backup jobs consume, which is especially important during business hours. You can create both global and per-job rules to achieve more granular control. The functionality can help you prevent network slowdown and disruptions to the concurrent processes.

Backup Data Encryption

With NAKIVO Backup & Replication, you can encrypt your backups to prevent unauthorized access to sensitive data and make it impossible to decipher if stolen. This physical backup solution relies on AES 256-bit encryption, the de facto worldwide encryption standard. It is equally important to encrypt your physical backup data both in flight (as the data travels over WAN) and at rest (when the backup reaches the repository).

Automation Capabilities

You can schedule your physical backup jobs to start at a particular time and thus streamline routine backup management. Proper planning and scheduling are your best bet against data retention gaps, job overlaps and the resulting network congestion. You can monitor and manage your past, current and planned jobs from the Calendar dashboard, the single point of control for all data protection activities. You can easily find open time slots for new jobs and create them right in the dashboard.

Storage Space Savings

NAKIVO Backup & Replication features built-in deduplication and compression, features designed to help you optimize storage space requirements. Physical backup data gets deduplicated to ensure that only unique data blocks are copied and then compressed to reduce the backup size even further. The combination of these features can help you increase backup speed and reduce backup storage costs. Together, the features can provide up to a ten-fold reduction in storage capacity requirements.
