NAKIVO Backup & Replication v5.5 Beta provides the ability to instantly browse, search, and recover Microsoft Active Directory objects and containers (such as entire domains or user groups) directly from compressed and deduplicated VMware VM backups, without having to restore an entire VM first.

The object recovery process is simple and straightforward: after specifying a VM backup and a recovery point, NAKIVO Backup & Replication automatically locates the Active Directory database in the VM backup and - within a few seconds - displays the contents of the database right in the product’s Web UI. From this point, the product provides the ability to browse and search the database, view object attributes, and recover Active Directory objects and containers.


"Microsoft Active Directory is one of the key mission-critical applications for organizations of all sizes. The ability to instantly recover Active Directory objects and containers enables administrators to eliminate downtime and ensure business continuity," said Bruce Talley, CEO and co-founder of NAKIVO. "We are excited to invite VMware professionals to try the new v5.5 Beta and help us make NAKIVO Backup & replication even better."
