Campbell, CA, United States — July 5, 2016

NAKIVO Inc., one of the fastest-growing virtualization and cloud backup software companies for VMware and Amazon AWS environments, today announced that it has started an open Beta program for NAKIVO Backup & Replication v6.1. All Beta program participants completing the program requirements will receive an Amazon gift card. More details and v6.1 Beta download are available at /resources/download/trial-download/.

New Features

  • Instant Object Recovery for Microsoft Exchange 2016 and 2013: NAKIVO Backup & Replication v6.1 Beta enables browsing, searching, and recovering MS Exchange 2016 and 2013 objects – such as emails – directly from compressed and deduplicated VMware VM backups, without the need to restore the entire VM first. This feature is purely agentless, works right out of the box, and does not require creating a special lab or running a special backup type.
  • Microsoft Exchange 2016 and 2013 Log Truncation: Exchange Server database transaction logs record all changes to an Exchange Server database. Over time, these log files accumulate and can consume all of the available disk space, if not periodically removed. NAKIVO Backup & Replication v6.1 Beta provides an option to truncate logs of Microsoft Exchange 2016 and 2013 after a successful backup.
  • HotAdd: The new HotAdd feature enables writing VM data directly from/to the VM datastore, bypassing the network. NAKIVO Backup & Replication v6.1 Beta automatically uses HotAdd in order to offload production LAN from the data protection traffic and to increase the data transfer speed.
  • Job Chaining: NAKIVO Backup & Replication v6.1 Beta extends the job scheduling functionality by introducing job chaining. With this feature, a job can finish its tasks and then trigger another job in a chain. This way, for example, it’s easy to set up a chain where a VM backup job saves data locally, and then triggers a Backup Copy jobs that sends backup copies to Amazon Cloud.
