Ransomware Protection

With NAKIVO Backup & Replication, you can ensure proper ransomware

protection, improve backup reliability and provide instant recovery in case of a

ransomware attack.

•Air-gapped backups: Keep your backups and backup copies offline (tape,

detachable NAS, USB drives, etc.) for ultimate ransomware protection.

•Immutable backups with S3 Object Lock: Make your backups and

backup copies stored in Amazon S3 buckets immutable for as long as

you need and ensure they remain protected from ransomware and

malicious changes.

•Immutable Repository: Enable immutability for backups and backup

copies sent to Linux-based local repositories.

•Hardened Virtual Appliance: Deploy the solution as a pre-configured

VA running Ubuntu Server and make your backups sent to a repository

deployed as part of the VA immutable for a specified period of time.

•Two-Factor Authentication: Enable two-factor authentication (2FA) for

NAKIVO Backup & Replication to prevent hackers from accessing your

data protection activities.

Disaster Recovery

With NAKIVO Backup & Replication, you can perform near-real-time VM

replication and orchestrate the disaster recovery process with Site Recovery.

•VM Replication: Create and maintain VMware and Hyper-V VM replicas,

which are identical copies of your source VMs.

•Replication from backup: Replicate VMs directly from backups to

reduce the load on the host, free up valuable resources, and save time.

•Amazon EC2 Instance Replication: Create and maintain Amazon EC2

instance replicas, which are identical copies of your source instances.

•Site Recovery: Create disaster recovery workflows and perform

scheduled non-disruptive recovery testing, planned failover, emergency

failover, failback, and datacenter migration with one click.

•Application Support: Ensure the consistency of applications and

databases, such as Microsoft Exchange, Active Directory, SQL, Oracle,

and so on.

•Replica Verification: Instantly verify VMware and Hyper-V VM replicas;

get a report with screenshots of test-recovered machines.

Performance

With NAKIVO Backup & Replication, you can boost backup, replication, and

recovery speeds by up to 2x and reduce network load by as much as 50%.

•Native Change Tracking: Use native change tracking technologies

(VMware CBT, Hyper-V RCT, Nutanix AHV CRT) to instantly identify

modified data and send only changed data to the destination.

•LAN-Free Data Transfer: Use the HotAdd or Direct SAN Access modes

to increase data transfer speed while offloading production networks.

•Network Acceleration: Increase performance in busy LAN and WAN

networks with built-in network acceleration.

•Bandwidth Throttling: Limit the speed of data transfer by configuring

global or per-job bandwidth rules.

Administration

NAKIVO Backup & Replication provides a simple web interface and comes

with great features to help you save time and money.

•Versatile Deployment: Deploy as a VA, install on Linux or Windows OS, or
