Free Data Protection for Physical, Virtual, and Cloud Environments
Ensure end-to-end data protection with a single solution
Get Started FastFaster than anything you have tried
It takes 1 click and under 60 seconds to install your new data protection solution. The rest of the product is just as simple: since the Free Edition is so user-friendly and intuitive, you are already an expert!
With the Free Edition, you just need a few seconds to create a new backup job and protect your machines. The backup includes all disks and configuration files; you have everything you need for a successful recovery.
Back Up and ReplicateLocally, remotely, and to the Cloud
The Free Edition contains all the features and functionality of the Pro Edition, with a limit of ten machines. You can create backups and replicas of live running machines, whether to make a copy before changing a machine, save data for long-term storage, or prevent unintentional data loss before decommissioning a machine.
NAKIVO Backup & Replication supports the transactional consistency of live applications and databases, such as Oracle, Microsoft Exchange, Active Directory, or Microsoft SQL. You can back up locally over LAN, remotely over WAN, and even to AWS or Azure Cloud storage solutions, thus keeping your important backups offsite, and out of harm's way.

Save Storage SpaceBuilt-in features are there to help
The amount of data that you manage increases on a daily basis, as do your backups, taking up expensive space and resources that would be better used for production. To reduce backup size, the Free Edition of NAKIVO Backup & Replication automatically skips swap data; these unnecessary files are not read, processed, transferred and stored in the backup repository.
To further reduce backup size, the Free Edition automatically deduplicates data across the entire backup repository, keeping only unique blocks of data. The deduplicated blocks are then compressed to reduce the space they consume even further. Combined, these data reduction technologies result in up to 30X less storage space needed for your backup data. The backups occupy minimal storage, but can be instantly booted when you need to recover data.
Instantly Recover What You NeedAt any time, and from anywhere
With the Free Edition’s web interface, you can manage all aspects of data protection at any time and from any place – even from a mobile device. NAKIVO Backup & Replication Free Edition is designed to instantly recover your machines, files, and application objects (Microsoft Exchange, Active Directory, or SQL) as efficiently as possible. Cross-Platform Recovery allows for fast recovery of data from a VMware environment in Hyper-V and vice versa. Additionally, the same functionality enables recovery of your physical server backups to VMware or Hyper-V VMs.
Copy and Migrate VMsQuickly, easily, in all directions
NAKIVO Backup & Replication’s Free Edition enables you to migrate and copy VMs between hosts or storage devices, even if they are located on standalone hosts, managed by different vCenter servers, or not connected. This is possible, thanks to the replication feature that allows you to create up to 30 recovery points which are represented by regular VMware snapshots of a VM replica. Hence, you can revert the VM state to the appropriate recovery point directly in the VMware interface that adds more universality.
