Why Choose NAKIVO Backup & Replication as the DRaaS Solution for MSPs
Offsite and Onsite Replication
Having ready-to-run replicas of source VMs can improve recovery times and minimize disruption to business operations in case of a disaster. NAKIVO Backup & Replication allows you to create replicas of your VMware vSphere VMs, Microsoft Hyper-V VMs and Amazon EC2 instances. You can store the replicas onsite for high availability when production systems go down or send them to an offsite secondary location for disaster recovery (DR) purposes. When a disaster strikes your primary site, you can fail over to the DR location by powering on the replicas or running failover, and have the business operations running again in a few moments, thus ensuring continuous service delivery and minimal data loss.
Disaster recovery best practices recommend both backing up and replicating critical virtual machines as frequently as needed. NAKIVO Backup & Replication allows you to create VM replicas directly from existing backups instead of production VMs to reduce snapshot overhead and offload the production environment. Moreover, the Job Chaining feature can help automate the entire process. Once a backup is completed, replication starts automatically with the newly created backup defined as the source, saving you time and resources.
Automated Disaster Recovery Workflows
With the advanced Site Recovery functionality, you can easily meet the expected recovery time objectives (RTOs) of your clients and spend less time and effort on managing routine disaster recovery (DR) operations. Automate the entire process by creating multiple DR workflows to ensure 24/7 availability. These workflows can include various actions such as planned failover, emergency failover, failback, planned migrations, script execution, conditional actions, etc. With these actions configured, you minimize downtime and achieve near-zero data loss.
Non-Disruptive Disaster Recovery Testing
Once the disaster recovery procedures are implemented, they must be tested to ensure the process is complete and meets your organization's requirements for RTOs and RPOs. The instant verification feature in NAKIVO Backup & Replication allows you to verify the functionality of backups and replicas to make sure they can be used for recovery when the need arises. The verification results can be viewed in the solution’s interface or sent via email. You can also set up automated testing of your Site Recovery workflows without disrupting your production environment to ensure that these workflows work as needed, allowing room for optimization if needed.
Automated VM Failover
Continue running business operations as usual after a disaster by running a single job with the automated VM failover feature in NAKIVO Backup & Replication. For this, you can create a replica of the source VM to which you’re going to fail over the primary VM. Then you can use the Instant Verification feature in NAKIVO Backup & Replication to verify the validity of your replica. Once you have an up-to-date replica at a secondary location, you can create a single VM failover job, which can include several VMs, to streamline and automate the disaster recovery process.
Successful DRaaS Implementation
With NAKIVO Backup & Replication, managed service providers (MSPs) can deliver reliable and secure disaster recovery as a service to SMBs. The solution allows you to create and manage up to 1,000 isolated tenants (clients) with a single deployment. You can allocate available resources such as hosts, clusters and VMs to clients depending on their infrastructures and data protection needs. Additionally, you can connect to the remote resources of your tenants via a single port, without setting up a VPN connection.
Self-Service Portal for Clients
For clients with their own IT departments, NAKIVO Backup & Replication provides an easy-to-use Self-Service Portal. Tenants can manage specific data protection activities directly in the portal while remaining completely isolated from other tenants. Clients can use the portal to create replicas and their own disaster recovery workflows. They can also launch failover/failback when needed. To offload these activities to tenants, the solution provides the role-based access control (RBAC) feature. Use RBAC to assign roles and grant permissions to clients while you maintain visibility over the entire multi-tenant environment.
