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 virtualization 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.

Optimize 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

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 organize 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.
