NAKIVO Backup & Replication v7.4 – Now Available for Download
Exciting news for the VM backup world: NAKIVO Backup & Replication v7.4 is officially released! A variety of new advanced features have been added to make data protection even more reliable and convenient.
Download v7.4 to test the entire scope of features in your own environment.
NAKIVO Backup & Replication v7.4 provides enhanced reliability for your virtual environment by enabling automated VM failover to replica. When your primary environment is down, you can switch over to replicas by running a single Failover job.
To eliminate the burden of manual reconfiguration of replicas, NAKIVO Backup & Replication v7.4 also includes network mapping and re-IP rules. You can automate re-connection of VM replicas to the appropriate network at the DR site with new network parameters.
A feature requested by many of our customers, Instant File Recovery to Source can be of great help when you have lost, corrupted, or accidentally deleted files. As well as sending individually recovered files by email or downloading them with a browser, v7.4 offers recovery directly to the source VM or another location of your choice. You can browse your files from the compressed and deduplicated backups as easily as you would browse them on your laptop. Then, simply select the files you need and have them recovered in a single click.
Designed to protect different kinds of environments, NAKIVO Backup & Replication v7.4 provides enhanced AWS EC2 instance backup with up to 1,000 recovery points per instance.
The new version of NAKIVO Backup & Replication includes automated self-backup, which doesn’t require any manual setup. By default, the product backs up the entire scope of backup system settings, including jobs, schedules, preferences, etc., and stores them in available repositories. Therefore, if your instance of NAKIVO Backup & Replication is no longer working properly due to a server crash or VM failure, you can install a new instance and have all the settings imported in a matter of minutes.
By default, NAKIVO Backup & Replication uses the available bandwidth to complete jobs as fast as possible. However, starting from version 7.4, you can set data transfer speed limits for each individual job and thus make sure that other applications get enough bandwidth to work properly.
Using the new Global Search tool in the web interface of NAKIVO Backup & Replication, you can instantly find any item you need throughout your entire backup infrastructure. The search results can be filtered by categories, e.g. “Backups”, “Backup repositories”, etc. Once items have been found that match your search terms, you can perform individual or bulk actions on them directly from the search results interface.
NAKIVO Backup & Replication v7.4 adds Flash VM Boot (also known as Instant VM Recovery) for Hyper-V VMs. Using this feature, you can instantly recover a Hyper-V VM for sandbox testing or other purposes, and then migrate such VM to production or discard the VM, all without affecting the corresponding backup.
With NAKIVO Backup & Replication v7.4, you can rest assured that your Hyper-V backups and replicas are recoverable. The product can automatically test-recover each backup (or power on each replica) after a job, take a screenshot of the OS, and then discard the test-recovered VM (or power off the replica). The screenshots are then sent to you in an email report.
NAKIVO Backup & Replication v7.4 can truncate logs of Microsoft SQL Server after every backup job. This feature prevents the log files from taking all available disk space and causing a server crash.
NAKIVO Backup & Replication v7.4 helps recover Microsoft SQL Server objects, such as databases and tables, either to their original location or a different one.
