Question

Can NAKIVO Backup & Replication be configured to store backups in Azure Cloud?
If yes, how can it be achieved?

Answer

NAKIVO Backup & Replication can be integrated with Azure to provide an on-demand offsite backup destination.
There are the following options available:

Deploying a Transporter in Azure and Using Local Storage
To integrate NAKIVO Backup & Replication with Azure by installing a Transporter and using local storage, follow the steps below:

  1. Deploy an Azure Virtual Machine with one of the supported operating systems.
  2. Attach and mount a new disk to this Azure VM that will be used for store backups.
  3. Upload and install Transporter on this Azure Virtual Machine.
  4. Add the Transporter to the product Configuration
  5. Create a Backup Repository in the attached and mounted disk.
  6. Create and run backup jobs.
  7. Recover data from backups.

Using Azure File Storage over SMB Protocol
To integrate NAKIVO Backup & Replication with Azure by using Azure file share, follow the steps below:

  1. Make sure you have a Transporter installed on Windows.
    Due to technical limitations Linux-based or NAS-based Transporters cannot use Azure file shares.
  2. Create an Azure file share using your cloud account.
  3. Create a Backup Repository on the Azure file share using your Windows-based Transporter.
