Protect VMs Onsite and Offsite

With NAKIVO Backup & Replication, you can easily back up and replicate entire VMware VMs on schedule or ad hoc, whether locally over LAN or offsite over a WAN connection. The product supports applications running inside VMs (such as MS Exchange, Active Directory, SQL, etc.) to ensure that VM backups and replicas are always consistent. You can save up to 1,000 recovery points for VM backups and as many as 30 for VM replicas. Using the GFS retention scheme, recovery points can be rotated on a daily, weekly, monthly, and yearly basis.

Instantly Recovery

Instantly Recover What You Need

NAKIVO Backup & Replication enables you to instantly run (boot) VMs directly from compressed and deduplicated VM backups. This way you can recover your VMs within seconds, without waiting for a full restore from backup files. You can also instantly browse, search, and recover files or application objects (Microsoft Exchange, Active Directory, SQL) directly from the product’s web interface. All these features are agentless and work out-of-the-box for all VM backups.

Save Time, Bandwidth, and Storage

NAKIVO Backup & Replication is purely agentless. The product can be easily installed on Windows or Linux and has a simple, intuitive web interface. To save time and boost performance, by default, backup jobs are forever-incremental. NAKIVO Backup & Replication leverages the hypervisor’s changed block tracking capabilities to quickly identify what data has changed since the last run. Network Acceleration and direct SAN support increase data transfer speeds, while multi-threading enables you to process multiple tasks simultaneously. Global data deduplication and compression reduce the size of the data for maximum efficiency.
