NAKIVO never stops enhancing the capabilities of our data protection software, NAKIVO Backup & Replication. We are, therefore, pleased to announce the release of the latest version.

Policy-Based Data Protection
Virtualized infrastructures are growing exponentially each day, requiring tremendous amounts of time to be managed and making manual data protection inefficient. To maintain the required level of protection, system administrators are forced to monitor every change taking place in their IT infrastructures and make sure that all important VMs are protected, including any that are newly added.
With NAKIVO Backup & Replication v8.1, you can easily put core data protection tasks on auto-pilot. The new Policy-Based Data Protection feature eliminates the need for manual data protection management by automating backup, replication, and backup copy jobs.
When creating a job, you can set up policies based on VM name, size, location, tag, or other parameters. For instance, you can choose to back up all VMs that have “win” in their name and/or exceed 100 GB in size. There are 9 parameters available that can be combined in any way you need. Once a policy-based job is created, NAKIVO Backup & Replication v8.1 automatically includes only matching VMs in its scope. Even more importantly, when new matching VMs are discovered, they are included in the scope automatically.
This means you no longer need to track and protect every individual VM or instance – NAKIVO Backup & Replication handles it for you.
Universal Object Recovery
Individual objects fall victim to human error or corruption more often than entire VMs. In most cases, to recover an individual object, you would have to first recover entire VMs, then search for the necessary data. Universal Object Recovery, introduced in NAKIVO Backup & Replication v8.1, allows you to bring back any individual object in a matter of minutes without full VM restoration. Simply mount disks from the relevant backup to a VM or a physical machine, then use native application management tools to recover the necessary items.
The feature maximizes the flexibility of the recovery process and saves you the significant amounts of time and resources that large-scale restoration requires.
SSL Certificate Installation
By default, NAKIVO Backup & Replication operates with a self-signed NAKIVO certificate. Version 8.1 provides you with the means to import you own SSL certificate into NAKIVO Backup & Replication in order to use safe “https” connections when browsing the product's user interface. The SSL certificate installation feature included in NAKIVO Backup & Replication v8.1 was designed with better usability, convenience, and security in mind.
Last but not least, NAKIVO Backup & Replication v8.1 introduces improvements to the general UI look. For easier navigation through the product, the items in the General, Inventory, Transporters, and Repositories tabs are now presented in a more convenient and user-friendly format, which is especially useful for large infrastructures.
