NAKIVO Introduces a Breakthrough Solution for Data Protection Automation

Officially released today, NAKIVO Backup & Replication v8.1 includes innovative functionality that allows customers to put their VM data protection on auto-pilot and considerably simplify data protection management.

Sparks, NV, United States — December 3, 2018

NAKIVO, Inc., a fast-growing virtualization and cloud backup software company, announced today the release of NAKIVO Backup & Replication v8.1. This latest version of the software revolutionizes the way businesses manage their data protection routines by reducing manual work to a minimum. In addition, v8.1 provides for universal recovery of any application objects.

Policy-Based Data Protection

Managing a large VMware, Hyper-V, or AWS infrastructure is a challenging task. NAKIVO Backup & Replication v8.1 eases the burden by introducing Policy-Based Data Protection. This innovative functionality lets customers create backup, replication, and backup copy policies to fully automate data protection processes.

A policy can be based on VM name, size, location, power state, tag, or a combination of multiple parameters. Once set up, policies regularly scan your entire infrastructure for VMs that match their criteria and protect the VMs automatically. This way, all important VMs and EC2 instances are protected with little to no manual input required.

Universal Object Recovery

To further improve data recovery processes, NAKIVO Backup & Replication has introduced Universal Object Recovery, which enables customers to recover any application objects back to source, to a custom location, or even to a physical server.

The Universal Object Recovery functionality is indispensable when it comes to saving time and resources on restoration. Customers can recover individual items from any file system or application by mounting VM disks from backups to a target recovery location, without needing to restore the entire VM first.

“We are expanding our product’s functionality to further improve reliability, flexibility, and ease of use,” says Bruce Talley, CEO of NAKIVO Inc. “Policy-Based Data Protection in v8.1 is yet another significant step in this direction. By fully automating core data protection tasks, NAKIVO Backup & Replication minimizes the possibility of human error and helps customers gain more confidence in their data protection strategies.”
