Key Features at a Glance
NAKIVO Backup & Replication provides agentless Nutanix AHV backup to reduce overhead, provide flexibility, and simplify data protection in Nutanix Acropolis infrastructures.
Nutanix AHV backup in NAKIVO Backup & Replication is application-aware. This means that all application data is captured in a transactionally consistent state.
NAKIVO Backup & Replication uses native change tracking technology – Nutanix Changed Regions Tracking – to identify and back up only unique data blocks and thus save storage space.
LAN-free data transfer and network acceleration in NAKIVO Backup & Replication improve backup performance and reduce backup windows.
Simplify Data Protection Management
Scheduling data protection jobs in large environments with hundreds of VMs can be a challenge, especially in those relying on multiple virtualisation solutions. NAKIVO Backup & Replication simplifies data protection management by providing tools such as Global Search and Calendar Dashboard. Easily locate unprotected VMs and protect them from the search results page. Once your backup jobs are created, you can see and manage them from the Calendar Dashboard.
Optimise Bandwidth Consumption
If your network is heavily loaded during the day or specific hours, you can limit the speed of backup data transfer using the Advanced Bandwidth Throttling feature. Set limits on bandwidth consumption on a per-job or global basis to prevent an extra load on your already busy network, thus, avoiding a slowdown in business applications’ performance.
Copy Your Backups to Tape
NAKIVO Backup & Replication enables you to copy your Nutanix AHV backups to tape for long term storage or archival. With the Native Backup to Tape, you can easily manage your tape devices, backups, as well as cartridges, and organise cartridges in media pools for easier backup process. The solution can effectively automate your tape backup process with Policy-Based Data Protection allowing you to concentrate on other important tasks.
Eliminate a Single Point of Failure
Backups can be damaged, get accidentally deleted, or become unavailable. Thus, by relying only on primary backups, you put your infrastructure at risk. Eliminate a single point of failure with backup copy jobs. You can run a backup copy automatically after every backup job and send backup copies to the cloud or a safe remote location. Thus, you can always have a valid copy of your data for fast recovery.
Strengthen Data Protection
If you send your backup data offsite, there is the possibility that critical information can be intercepted in transit or accessed at the destination by a hacker. To prevent this, NAKIVO Backup & Replication can use 256-bit encryption to protect your Nutanix AHV backups in flight and at rest. Thus, you can be sure that your data is protected both during backup transfer and at the target location.
Lower Storage Space Requirements
With the Nutanix Changed Regions Tracking technology in place, NAKIVO Backup & Replication not only delivers higher backup speed but also lowers storage space requirements. The product identifies the blocks of data that have changed since the most recent backup job and transfers only such blocks to the repository. Once transferred, the data is deduplicated and compressed, which can result in 10X to 30X reduction in storage capacity requirements.
Recover Nutanix AHV VMs
Business-critical VM failure can hurt both your finances and reputation with clients. With NAKIVO Backup & Replication, you can recover entire Nutanix AHV VMs in a fast and efficient manner – simply use the latest backup and bring your VM back to life in a few clicks. Full VM recovery allows you to minimise interruptions in your business operations and resume delivery of services within significantly shorter timeframes.
Deliver BaaS to Nutanix AHV Users
The Multi-Tenancy functionality opens up new opportunities for delivering backup-as-a-service to businesses running Nutanix AHV or a mixed environment. The multi-tenancy mode allows you to add and manage up to 1,000 tenants from a single admin web interface while keeping them isolated. Your customers can access and manage their data without seeing other users, thus relieving you of the need to create and maintain separate user accounts.
