You can install a Synology package with either all NAKIVO Backup & Replication components (Director, Transporter, Backup Repository) or a transporter only. The following packages are available:

  • Synology package
  • Synology Transporter package
  • Synology ARM package
  • Synology ARM Transporter package

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 the valuable resources of your environment. 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 maintenance, time, money, and – most of all – higher VM backup performance.

To install NAKIVO Backup & Replication on a Synology NAS, do the following:

  1. Download a Synology NAS package.
  2. In the Synology NAS management interface, open the Package Center.
