Windows Server Backup Solution from NAKIVO
Servers fail for different reasons, be it a hardware failure, software issues, or a ransomware attack. But with reliable backup software for Windows Server, server downtime doesn’t lead to loss of critical data and productivity. Use NAKIVO Backup & Replication to back up physical servers running Windows to a variety of destinations and maintain consistent copies of your app data ready for recovery as soon as you need it.
Windows Server Backup
Enable change tracking to create incremental block-level Windows server backups. With only changed data blocks transferred to a backup repository, you can shorten backup windows, save storage space and accommodate more recovery points.
Protect backups from modification by ransomware in local Linux-based repositories, with hardened virtual appliances, in immutable Amazon S3 buckets or with backup copies on tape. Use encryption to protect backup data in flight (with AES 256 over WAN) and at rest (in the repository).
Backup data tiering is essential for applying the 3-2-1 backup rule and to ensure availability for the most critical backup data. Backup copy uses backups instead of production servers to send data offsite, to a public cloud (Amazon S3, Wasabi, Microsoft Azure) or to tape. Use Job Chaining to automate backup data tiering.
Instant Granular Recovery
Recover files and application objects instantly from Windows server backups. Items can be recovered to the original server or a new location and are usable as soon as they’re recovered.
Use the app-aware mode for consistent backups of applications, file servers and databases. Supported platforms:
- Microsoft apps: Exchange Server, SQL Server, Active Directory
- Oracle Database
- File servers
Instant P2V Recovery
When a server goes down, restore workloads from Windows server backups as virtual machines. Immediately boot VMware vSphere VMs directly from server backups and maintain uninterrupted workflows.
Secure Data Protection
Enable two-factor authentication for colleagues with access to NAKIVO Backup & Replication. Configure role-based access control (RBAC) to apply the principle of least privilege.
For large environments with hundreds of critical physical and virtual machines, automation saves time and prevents data protection gaps. Set up custom policies to automatically protect machines that match your rules.
To avoid overlaps and gain complete visibility into data protection activities, use the Calendar dashboard to schedule backups and view all past, ongoing and future activities.
