MSP-Ready for BaaS and DRaaS

MSP-Ready for BaaS and DRaaS

Multi-tenancy mode for MSPs to deliver backup as a service (BaaS) and disaster recovery as a service (DRaaS). Secure connection to remote client environments over a secure port, without the need for a VPN connection.

Ransomware Protection and Recovery

Ransomware Protection and Recovery

Enable immutability for backup data stored in Amazon S3, Backblaze B2, Wasabi, Azure Blob Storage and local Linux-based repositories to avoid data accidental deletion and encryption by ransomware. Recover critical data quickly and reliably without paying the ransom.

VM Backup Appliance Based on NAS

NAKIVO Backup & Replication can be installed on one of the supported NAS servers to create an all-in-one backup appliance, delivering hyperconverged data protection and business service availability for SMB data centers and enterprise edge computing branch offices.



Robust Protection

NAKIVO Backup & Replication provides reliable backup for different IT environments:

  • VMware vSphere
  • Microsoft Hyper-V
  • Nutanix AHV
  • Amazon EC2
  • Linux/Windows physical servers and workstations
  • SMB (CIFS)/NFS file shares
  • Microsoft 365 (Exchange Online, OneDrive for Business, SharePoint Online and Teams)
  • Oracle Database via RMAN

Keep backups and backup copies on-premises, offsite, on tape or in a public cloud to avoid a single point of failure. Fully automate core data protection tasks such as backup, backup copy and replication with policy-based jobs and job chaining. Track CPU, RAM, disk and datastore disk usage of your VMware vSphere infrastructure from a single dashboard with VMware Monitoring.

Ransomware Resilience

NAKIVO Backup & Replication has extensive functionality for protecting backups against new ransomware infections:

  • Create immutable backups in the cloud (Amazon S3, Wasabi, Backblaze B2, Azure Blob Storage) or in local Linux-based repositories to protect them against deletion or encryption by ransomware.
  • Deploy the solution as a pre-configured VA or AMI and enable immutability for backups sent to a built-in Linux-based repository.
  • Keep your backups air-gapped by storing them on tape and taking other backup storage devices offline, thereby making them inaccessible to ransomware.
  • Use replication and create VMs replicas for automated failover and disaster recovery orchestration.

Outstanding Performance

NAKIVO Backup & Replication delivers the highest levels of performance for backup, replication and recovery while preventing your backup operations from consuming all of the available bandwidth. With
Advanced Bandwidth Throttling, you can set global or per-job rules to limit bandwidth consumption, offloading busy networks and speeding up business-critical applications.
LAN-Free Data Transfer and Network Acceleration enable up to 50% network load reduction and up to 2 times higher data transfer speeds.

Near-Instant Recovery

NAKIVO Backup & Replication allows you to easily restore VMs, files and application objects directly from backups:

  • With Instant File Recovery to Source and Instant Object Recovery for Microsoft Exchange Server, SQL Server and Active Directory you can recover files/objects to the original or a custom location.
  • Use Flash VM Boot to quickly start VMware vSphere and Microsoft. Hyper-V VMs from backups.
  • For reliable protection of multi-hypervisor environments, NAKIVO Backup & Replication includes Cross-Platform Recovery for easy export and recovery of VM backups across virtualization platforms.
  • Restore Windows/Linux physical machines from backups as VMware vSphere VMs with physical-to-virtual (P2V recovery).

Highly Reliable Data Protection

Store backups and backup copies locally and offsite following the 3-2-1 backup rule. NAKIVO Backup & Replication allows you to create backups in the cloud and
copy backups to tape quickly and seamlessly for long-term storage or archiving. With native backup to tape, you can create air-gapped backups, completely isolated from the production environment, protecting them against ransomware and cyberattacks.

NAKIVO Backup & Replication can near-instantly verify your VM backups and replicas right after the job completion. Perform
self-backups to keep the system configuration safe (including inventory, jobs, schedules, preferences, etc.). With
role-based access control (RBAC), you can assign unique sets of permissions to local or Active Directory users, improving visibility and control over your data protection activities.

Disaster Recovery Orchestration

Site Recovery allows you to create automated disaster recovery (DR) workflows and perform scheduled DR testing without disrupting the production environment. Once a recovery workflow is set up, you can perform planned failover, emergency failover, failback and data center migration with just one click.

Custom recovery workflows can include steps for graceful shutdown of source VMs, final VM replication, replica VM re-IP according to predefined rules, network mapping, staged power-on of replica VMs, custom scripting, email notifications, etc. Create a single recovery workflow for an entire organization or multiple workflows for individual departments or branch offices.

Powerful Multi-Tenancy for MSPs and Enterprises

Multi-tenancy allows you to create, manage and monitor up to 1,000 isolated tenants within a single deployment of NAKIVO Backup & Replication. Tenants are MSP clients or different departments or branches in a large enterprise. Tenants can use the Self-Service Portal to perform backup, replication and recovery jobs while being isolated from each other’s environments. This feature offers flexible
role-based access control (RBAC) and resource allocation to assign resources to tenants. The Direct Connect feature allows MSPs to establish secure connections to their clients’ remote environments over a single port without the need for a VPN connection.

Efficient Data Size Reduction

By default, all backup jobs are incremental and transfer only changed data, which helps save space in the target repository. NAKIVO Backup & Replication can
deduplicate backups and compress each data block to minimize the amount of occupied space. You can exclude unnecessary
swap data and unused blocks automatically during backups. Along with these features that deliver up to 10 times reduction in storage footprint, NAKIVO Backup & Replication supports industry-standard deduplication appliances such as NEC HYDRAstor,
Dell EMC Data Domain and HPE StoreOnce, allowing for enterprise-grade deduplication ratios.
