Storage Integration Requirements

NAKIVO Backup & Replication can be integrated with deduplication appliances including Dell EMC Data Domain, NEC HYDRAstor, and HP StoreOnce (Catalyst) appliances by using an Incremental-with-full-backups repository. Deduplication appliances are servers designed to reduce data size and can be used as backup targets. They operate best with sequential large block I/O from backup software. Therefore, when backing up to a deduplication appliance, it is important to make sure that the architecture of your Backup Repository is optimized for these devices and your backups have a large block I/O. Only by doing this will you be able to maximize your backup speed. NAKIVO Backup & Replication provides advanced integration with the following storage solutions:
