Why Choose NAKIVO Backup & Replication as the BaaS Solution for MSPs

Data Protection Across Multiple Platforms

NAKIVO Backup & Replication supports a wide range of platforms, allowing you to expand your offerings while managing all clients’ backups from one centralized web interface. The solution can seamlessly protect VMware vSphere, Microsoft Hyper-V, Nutanix AHV, Amazon EC2, Windows/Linux workstations and physical servers, Microsoft 365 and Oracle Database. NAKIVO Backup & Replication can be installed on Linux/Windows OS or deployed as a pre-configured VMware/Nutanix AHV virtual appliance or an Amazon Machine Image (AMI). You can also install the solution on various leading NAS devices for a 5-in-1 backup appliance combining backup hardware, software, storage, backup to cloud functionality and deduplication.

Fast and Reliable Recovery of Data

NAKIVO Backup & Replication offers instant full and granular data restores to help keep the workloads running during and after a data loss event. You can instantly recover individual files, folders or application objects for Microsoft Exchange, Active Directory, Microsoft SQL Server and Oracle Database directly to the original or a custom location. Instantly boot VMware vSphere and Microsoft Hyper-V VMs directly from deduplicated and compressed backups. Perform physical-to-virtual (P2V) recovery by running Windows/Linux physical machine from a backup as a VMware vSphere VM. The solution also allows you to restore a backed-up VMware vSphere VM as a Microsoft Hyper-V VM or vice versa using the Cross-Platform Recovery feature.

Ransomware Protection and Recovery

Immutable backups are an essential component of a solid data protection strategy. Immutability means that backup data is protected from modification, deletion or encryption by ransomware for a period you specify. NAKIVO Backup & Replication allows you to use the S3 Object Lock functionality to make backups stored in Amazon S3 immutable for a specified duration. The solution also offers immutability for backups sent to local Linux-based repositories. This way, you can keep your clients’ backups safe from ransomware attacks and ready for recovery when needed. NAKIVO Backup & Replication also uses encryption for protecting VM backups in flight and at rest.

Broad Array of Backup Destinations

Successful implementation of the 3-2-1 backup rule adds multiple layers of protection to your clients’ backup data and improves recovery time in case of data loss. NAKIVO Backup & Replication provides you with various backup storage options to ensure that data is readily available and to keep storage costs down. You can store backups and backup copies on local storage, file shares (CIFS, NFS), physical tape libraries, Amazon VTL or public clouds (such as Amazon S3, Wasabi Hot Cloud Storage and Microsoft Azure). The solution also offers the Job Chaining feature to automate backup copies across different backup storage tiers.

Flexibility and Scalability for MSPs

With NAKIVO Backup & Replication, MSPs get simple administration, flexible BaaS options and an easily scalable architecture. Using a single instance of the solution, you can create and manage up to 1,000 tenants, completely isolated from each other. Assign resources in your data protection infrastructure (such as hosts, repositories, VMs, etc.) to these tenants. You can also authorize tenants to directly manage their own data protection activities (backup, replication, recovery) in the Self-Service Portal. Moreover, you can access the remote environments of your clients via a single port, without the need to establish a VPN connection.

Data Backup Automation and Verification

NAKIVO Backup & Replication can help you streamline the management of multiple clients with advanced backup automation and verification options. You can create policy rules based on VM name, size, tag, location and other parameters to add or exclude VMs from backups automatically. Moreover, the instant verification feature allows you to verify backups for recoverability to ensure that data can be restored whenever the need arises.
