Protect VMs Onsite and Offsite

You can easily schedule VMware backup and replication jobs in a fast and simple Web interface. For each VM backup, you can save up to 1,000 recovery points and rotate them on a daily, weekly, and monthly basis. All backup jobs are forever-incremental, use VMware Changed Block Tracking to quickly identify changed data, can run in the LAN-free mode, and also use Network Acceleration.

What is VMware Backup?

VMware VM backup is a point in time copy of an entire VMware VM that is stored in a special folder, called backup repository:

VMware VM Backup

NAKIVO Backup & Replication provides the ability to create VM backups on demand, on schedule and store backups locally, offsite, as well as in private/public clouds.

Save Storage Space

NAKIVO Backup & Replication automatically deduplicates backed up data at the block level across an entire backup repository, and saves only unique blocks of data. This dramatically reduces backup size. After data deduplication, the product automatically compresses each data block so it occupies even less storage space in a backup repository.

VM Backup Size Reduction

NAKIVO Backup & Replication uses data compression and data deduplication to reduce the amount of space used by VM backups. While compression reduces the data size, deduplication ensures that only unique data blocks are saved to the backup repository:

Full Synthetic Data Storage

NAKIVO Backup & Replication uses full synthetic mode to store VM backups. After each job run, the product creates a recovery point – a set of references to data blocks, which are required to reconstruct the entire VM. For example, if NAKIVO Backup & Replication determines that the amount of changes on a 100 GB VM is just 1 MB, only 1 MB of data will be transferred to the backup repository, but the created recovery point will reference all data blocks (from previous job runs) which are required to restore the entire 100 GB VM. With this approach, each recovery point “knows” all data blocks that are needed for recovery, so there is no need to apply increments one by one to get to a particular recovery point or periodically transform backed up data blocks.

VM Backup Retention Policy

With NAKIVO Backup & Replication you can save up to 1,000 recovery points per VM backup. Using Grandfather-Father-Son (GFS) rotation scheme, you can rotate recovery points on a daily, weekly, monthly, and yearly basis:

Protect Backups Created by Particular Backup Jobs

Backup jobs in NAKIVO Backup & Replication provide a convenient way to back up multiple VMs/Amazon EC2 Instances with the same settings. Since logical grouping is already done at the Backup job level, NAKIVO Backup & Replication enables you to create and maintain copies of backups created by particular Backup jobs:
