Windows Workstation Backup with the NAKIVO Solution

Automated and Scheduled Backups

Streamline data protection administration and save time with advanced features. The Calendar dashboard allows you to schedule Windows workstation backups and minimize overlaps by easily finding available time slots. Use Job Chaining to build workflow sequences. Create policy-based rules to ensure the protection of all machines that match those rules.

Anti-Ransomware Resilience

Make use of anti-ransomware protection for backup data in the cloud. Enable immutability for repositories stored in Amazon S3, Wasabi, Azure Blob or Backblaze B2 repositories. No one, not even superusers, can lift the immutability or change the duration.

Physical-to-Virtual Recovery

Minimize recovery time objectives (RTOs) by booting Windows machines directly from backups as VMware vSphere VMs with the P2V functionality.

File and Object Recovery

Instantly restore individual files and objects for Microsoft apps like SQL Server, Exchange Server and Active Directory without recovering the entire machine. Send files to their original location or a custom repository.

Advanced Storage Tiering

Eliminate a single point of failure by sending backups and backup copies of Windows laptops and desktops to different types of storage depending on retention period and recovery objectives: local storage, offsite, cloud, tape, etc.

Advanced Network Management

The Network Acceleration feature allows you to shrink backup windows and limit network usage during business hours. Set global or individual Bandwidth Throttling rules to mitigate the impact of Windows workstation backups on LAN/WAN networks.
