Increase Backup and Replication Speed with Network Acceleration


Network infrastructure and bandwidth are crucial factors when thinking about data protection and recovery tasks, such as VM backup, replication, backup copy, and recovery in VMware, Hyper-V, and AWS EC2 environments. The network is the “plumbing” that carries packets including VM backup and replication packets to and from business-critical systems. WAN links are often used to carry VM replication and/or backup copy traffic from one site to another, such as a DR site. However, WAN links are expensive and generally have low bandwidth when compared to high-bandwidth LAN connections. Even with faster and higher bandwidth networks that exist in enterprise datacenter environments today, WAN and LAN links need to be treated as a limited resource. Efficiency is extremely important when it comes to data protection, which includes network resources.

Implementing technologies with our VM backup and replication jobs that can conserve network bandwidth, which allows us to make the most of bandwidth available for WAN and LAN networks. With NAKIVO Backup & Replication, we can utilize a technology called Network Acceleration to more efficiently send data between transporters, thus conserving bandwidth and impact on the production WAN and LAN networks. How does Network Acceleration work? How is it configured? Let’s find out.

What is Network Acceleration?

Network Acceleration is a technology which compresses and reduces traffic between a pair of Transporters. The Transporters within the NAKIVO Backup & Replication infrastructure perform the heavy lifting with VM backup, replication, and recovery jobs. They essentially move the data and perform all data protection and recovery tasks. By default, NAKIVO Backup & Replication installs one Transporter with a default repository. However, as mentioned above, a second transporter is required for Network Acceleration. The source Transporter can read the data, compress, and optimize it and then send the data to the target Transporter.
