Agentless Backup

NAKIVO Backup & Replication provides agentless Nutanix AHV backup to reduce overhead, provide flexibility, and simplify data protection in Nutanix Acropolis infrastructures.

Application-Consistent Backup

Nutanix AHV backup in NAKIVO Backup & Replication is application-aware. This means that all application data is captured in a transactionally consistent state.


Incremental Backup  

NAKIVO Backup & Replication uses native change tracking technology – Nutanix Changed Regions Tracking – to identify and back up only unique data blocks and thus save storage space.

High-Performance Backup

LAN-free data transfer and network acceleration in NAKIVO Backup & Replication improve backup performance and reduce backup windows.

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.

Strengthen Data Protection

If you send your backup data offsite, there is the possibility that critical information can be intercepted in transit or accessed at the destination by a hacker. To prevent this, NAKIVO Backup & Replication can use 256-bit encryption to protect your Nutanix AHV backups in flight and at rest. Thus, you can be sure that your data is protected both during backup transfer and at the target location.

Lower Storage Space Requirements

With the Nutanix Changed Regions Tracking technology in place, NAKIVO Backup & Replication not only delivers higher backup speed but also lowers storage space requirements. The product identifies the blocks of data that have changed since the most recent backup job and transfers only such blocks to the repository. Once transferred, the data is deduplicated and compressed, which can result in 10X to 30X reduction in storage capacity requirements

Recover Nutanix AHV VMs

Business-critical VM failure can hurt both your finances and reputation with clients. With NAKIVO Backup & Replication, you can recover entire Nutanix AHV VMs in a fast and efficient manner – simply use the latest backup and bring your VM back to life in a few clicks. Full VM recovery allows you to minimize interruptions in your business operations and resume delivery of services within significantly shorter timeframes.

Deliver BaaS to Nutanix AHV Users

The Multi-Tenancy functionality opens up new opportunities for delivering backup-as-a-service to businesses running Nutanix AHV or a mixed environment. The multi-tenancy mode allows you to add and manage up to 1,000 tenants from a single admin web interface while keeping them isolated. Your customers can access and manage their data without seeing other users, thus relieving you of the need to create and maintain separate user accounts.
