The 3-2-1 rule is known to be the best data protection strategy as it can be a lifesaver for many IT experts and system administrators. According to this rule, there have to be at least 3 backups of data stored on no less than 2 different devices or storage media, and one of the backups should be stored off-site.
Multiple copies allow you to avoid the risk of losing your primary data, as storing them in several locations ensures your data is safe in case something should happen to one of these locations.

With the help of the NAKIVO solution, you can create backups, backup copies, and replicas to provide protection for your virtual machines:
