Backup for VMware, Hyper-V, and AWS EC2

NAKIVO Backup & Replication provides image-based, application-aware, incremental backup for VMware, Hyper-V, and AWS EC2 environments. This means that NAKIVO Backup & Replication can capture all VM data while ensuring the consistency of applications and databases running in VMs (such as Exchange, Active Directory, MS SQL, SharePoint, etc.). NAKIVO Backup & Replication leverages native change tracking technologies (VMware CBT/Hyper-V RCT) to instantly identify changed data. Only changed blocks are copied to the backup repository. You can save up to 1,000 recovery points for each VM backup, rotating them on a daily, weekly, monthly, and yearly basis.
