QNAP and NAKIVO Jointly Provide an All-in-one Backup Solution for VM Backup

QNAP® Systems, Inc. has teamed up with NAKIVO®, one of the fastest-growing virtualization and cloud backup software companies, to provide a high-performance yet affordable VM backup solution that is fully integrated with QNAP NAS. This joint solution contains all of the elements for disaster recovery: hardware to run restores, backup data, and backup software. Users can greatly benefit from the 1.9X backup speed boost when NAKIVO is deployed directly on a QNAP NAS, and enjoy a lower price versus other dedicated backup appliances.

NAKIVO Backup & Replicationis a fast, reliable, and affordable VM backup solution that supports agentless, application-aware VMware®, Hyper-V® and AWS® EC2 VM backup and replication. It offers advanced features that increase backup performance, improve reliability and speed up recovery, including global data deduplication and compression for reducing storage space, forever-incremental backups with CBT/RCT, LAN-free data transfer, fast VM and object recovery, backup copy, instant backup verification with screenshots of test-recovered VMs, and more. By installing NAKIVO Backup & Replication v7 directly from QNAP’s QTS App Center, users that require uncompromising VM protection can combine the powerful, secure, and feature-rich QNAP NAS storage with the easy-to-manage and comprehensive feature set of NAKIVO Backup & Replication.

“We are excited to extend our collaboration with QNAP by expanding support for their high-performance and reliable NAS products," said Bruce Talley, CEO of NAKIVO, adding "QNAP has garnered a reputation for creating gold-standard, virtualization-ready business and entry-level enterprise NAS devices. It is a pleasure working with their talented team and innovative products."

“NAKIVO provides excellent functionality and an affordable option for QNAP NAS users to back up VMs with a unified, single system,” said Jack Yang, Associate Vice President of Product Management at QNAP. “To fulfill intensive virtualization applications in modern IT infrastructures, we recommend the dual-controller Enterprise ZFS NAS as High-Availability VM storage, while users can easily leverage the QNAP-based NAKIVO VM backup solution for online backups from the Enterprise ZFS NAS to enjoy a complete virtualization-ready solution.”

NAKIVO also supports backing up VM copies from QNAP NAS to onsite/offsite storage or Amazon Cloud for double protection. Backup Copy jobs have their own schedule and recovery point retention policy to provide an efficient disaster recovery solution.


The NAKIVO app is now available from the QTS App Center.
