VMware Disaster Recovery with NAKIVO Backup & Replication
NAKIVO Backup & Replication is an all-in-one VMware disaster recovery solution which can transform your approach to data protection and disaster recovery.
NAKIVO Backup & Replication allows you to create copies of your source VMware VMs and maintain them locally or offsite. For disaster recovery purposes, it is preferable to replicate to your DR location where your replicas can be stored in the powered-off state until the VMware disaster recovery process has to be launched. Your replication jobs can be set to run as often as possible, thus enabling nearly real-time replication of your critical VMs. In case of unexpected event, you can easily power on your VM replicas and instantly switch business-critical workloads to the DR location to ensure uninterrupted service delivery.
VMware Replication from Backup
Data protection policies at some organizations require to both back up and replicate business-critical VMs. NAKIVO Backup & Replication, can easily replicate your VMware VMs directly from existing backups. This not only helps avoid redundant manual work but also reduces snapshot overhead, thus, offloading the production environment. Furthermore, NAKIVO Backup & Replication allows you to automate the whole process with Job Chaining. Once a VMware backup job is successfully complete, the product can automatically launch a replication job using the VM backup as a source.
Automated VMware VM Failover
With NAKIVO Backup & Replication, you can successfully recover from any disaster by running a single failover job. For this purpose, you need to have VMware VM replicas first. While configuring a failover job, specify which VM replicas should be powered on upon the job completion. To streamline the VMware disaster recovery process, you can set up Network Mapping and Re-IP rules which can automatically assign new networks and IP addresses to VM replicas upon failover. The failback process can be launched just as easily, once you are ready to return business-critical workloads to the production site.
The Site Recovery functionality of NAKIVO Backup & Replication can help you streamline disaster recovery activities across multiple sites. You can create multiple site recovery workflows, with each of them being configured to address nearly every possible disaster recovery scenario. By combining various actions and conditions into an automated algorithm, you can build site recovery workflows of any complexity. Moreover, the functionality provided for non-disruptive site recovery testing, ensuring that you have a workable VMware disaster recovery plan and allowing you to optimize it if needed.
