Installing on Synology NAS
NAKIVO Backup & Replication can be installed directly on a supported Synology NAS to create your own, high-performance backup appliance. With the appliance, all VM data protection components are unified in a single system that is fast to deploy and easy to manage, while also not consuming your environment's valuable resources. Moreover, you are getting an all-in-one backup hardware, backup software, backup storage, and data deduplication in a single box. This results in a zero VMware footprint, less power and cooling, less required maintenance, time, money, and – most of all – higher VM backup performance.
You can install a Synology package with either all NAKIVO Backup & Replication components (Director, Transporter, Backup Repository) or a Transporter only. The product can be installed via Package Center or manually. For more details, refer to the corresponding topics below:
A pre-shared key is not created during Transporter-only installation. When adding this Transporter to NAKIVO Backup & Replication, filling out the master password field is not required. The master password can be manually set and reset later. For details, refer to Installed Service.
