NAKIVO Backup & Replication is a unified solution for protecting physical, virtual, and cloud infrastructures with strict data protection requirements. NAKIVO Backup & Replication allows you to seamlessly perform Windows Servers backup, ensuring data consistency of applications and databases.
Key Features at a Glance
NAKIVO Backup & Replication performs incremental Windows server backup, which helps save time and storage resources. The software runs backup jobs using the proprietary change tracking method and transfers only changed blocks of data to the repository.
NAKIVO Backup & Replication can use AES 256‑bit encryption to protect Windows Server backups. The software transforms data into an unreadable cipher text which secures it from unauthorised access.
NAKIVO Backup & Replication relies on the Microsoft’s Volume Shadow Copy Service to ensure that the data of applications and databases (Microsoft Exchange, SQL, Active Directory, SharePoint, Oracle, etc.) running on Windows Servers are backed up in a transactionally consistent state.
NAKIVO Backup & Replication makes it possible to improve backup performance with out-of-the-box features such as network acceleration, which speeds up data transfer over busy LAN and WAN networks.
NAKIVO Backup & Replication can recover physical Windows Server machines to VMware and Hyper-V VMs. With the Physical to Virtual (P2V) functionality in place, you can easily perform a migration of your physical workloads to a virtual environment or simply make sure you'll be able to recover business-critical physical machines under any circumstances.
Run your Windows Server backup jobs on demand or set up a schedule to run as often as you need to meet shorter RPOs. Backing up entire Windows Servers can be a resource-intensive process, requiring you to run your backup jobs outside of business hours. NAKIVO Backup & Replication’s Calendar Dashboard allows you to schedule your Windows Server backup jobs so that there are no overlaps between them. The feature simplifies backup management in hybrid environments, providing you with a bird’s eye view of all your backup jobs.
In addition to running incremental Windows Server backups, NAKIVO Backup & Replication reduces backup sise by deduplicating and compressing your Windows Server backups once they reach the repository. Thanks to deduplication, the software excludes duplicate data blocks and saves only unique chunks of data. Deduplicated data is then compressed to occupy even less space in the repository. The combination of these operations frees up significant amounts of storage space and saves you precious resources.
NAKIVO Backup & Replication allows you to bring back individual files without recovering the entire physical server. You can restore files and application objects (Microsoft Exchange, Microsoft SQL, and Microsoft Active Directory) right from deduplicated and compressed Windows Server backups in a couple of clicks.
Having an extra copy of your Windows backups is vital for ensuring business continuity. To mitigate the consequences of accidental deletion, corruption, hardware failure, or other unpredicted event, NAKIVO Backup & Replication lets you create additional copies of your backups in the cloud or at a safe remote location. By creating Windows Server backup copies, you eliminate a single point of failure if your primary backup is rendered unavailable. Simply grab the most recent backup copy and recover what you need.
NAKIVO Backup & Replication provides you with the opportunity to control bandwidth consumption. If you need to run your Windows backup jobs during business hours, you can offload your network by setting global or per-job bandwidth throttling rules. This way, you decide how much bandwidth is used for backup and when. The Advanced Bandwidth Throttling feature is an effective tool that optimises your Windows Server backup operations and helps ensure sufficient bandwidth for business-critical applications.
Long-term data storage can be quite costly. This, however, is not the case if you choose tape as your storage medium. By copying your Windows Server backups to tape, you can significantly cut down storage costs and improve the reliability of your backups in general. NAKIVO Backup & Replication can also help easily manage your backups, tape devices, and tape cartridges, which in turn can greatly reduce the complexity of the data protection process.
