Nakivo Offsite Target Features
Nakivo Offsite Backup Repository
Storage Networks hosts a remote Nakivo Transporter in one of our SOC 2 certified datacenters for your on premise Nakivo system to replicate to. By hosting a native Nakivo transporter as opposed to a generic S3 or NAS target, we can provide WAN efficient offsite backups while utilizing features like Nakivo deduplication and immutability (immutable datastore) to reduce cloud storage costs. You can elect to store your offsite Nakivo backups on our cloud storage, or we can host an inexpensive target such as a Synology Rackstation and mount to a Transporter VM.
Nakivo Cloud Failover (Restore from Backup) and Replica Targets
In the event of a disaster in your server room, you can restore your Nakivo backups to our hosted Hyper-V and VMWare servers. You will only pay for the compute resources you use for either actual failover or periodic testing, avoiding costly monthly fees for resources you will infrequently utilize.
Storage Networks can also provide hosted VMWare and Hyper-V Servers to serve as Nakivo Replica Targets so your VMs can failover without having to first restore them from a backup.
Loaner Servers and Data Recovery
Sometimes cloud DR is not possible due to security or financial restrictions. Storage Networks can provide and deploy rental (loaner) servers to help you recover from a server room disaster such as a fire or burst pipe. Storage Networks can help you restore Nakivo backup data from your own remote site, tape, our cloud service, or a third party cloud service to these rental servers while you work with insurance providers to procure new equipment. We have been told that many insurance providers will reimburse customers for disaster recovery expenses.
