Campbell, CA, United States — July 18, 2017

NAKIVO Inc., one of the fastest-growing virtualization and cloud backup software companies, today announced that it had started an open Beta Program for NAKIVO Backup & Replication v7.2. The v7.2 Beta is available for download and has new features aimed to streamline and simplify VM backup and recovery. All Beta program participants completing the program requirements will receive an Amazon gift card. More details and v7.2 Beta download are available at

NAKIVO Backup & Replication provides a variety of deployment options and can be installed on Windows, Linux, as well as directly on QNAP, Synology, and Western Digital NAS servers, transforming these devices into powerful VM Backup appliances. The new Beta version extends the range of supported NAS servers, by adding support for ASUSTOR NAS servers, which are characterized by high performance, reliability, stability, and enhanced energy efficiency. NAKIVO Backup & Replication v7.2 Beta installed on ASUSTOR NAS is a perfect combination of backup software, hardware, and storage, as well as data deduplication in a single device.

NAKIVO Backup & Replication v7.2 Beta now allows truncating transaction log files in Microsoft SQL Server 2008 and later. This feature helps to free up the VM storage space and protects the SQL Server from failures leading to data loss. The log truncation process is fully automated: NAKIVO Backup & Replication v7.2 Beta backs up/replicates the entire VM, deletes log files on the source SQL Server, and keeps the compressed and deduplicated VM backup/replica with all transaction log files. This backup file/replica can be used to restore the database data, whenever necessary.

The v7.2. Beta also provides Instant Object Recovery for Microsoft SQL Server. This feature was previously available for Microsoft Exchange and Microsoft Active Directory and provides the ability to instantly restore selected Microsoft SQL server objects, such as databases and tables, without restoring an entire VM. Objects can be restored back to the source VM, a different VM, or exported to a custom location. The Instant Object Recovery feature automates and streamlines the process of data restoration and saves time and efforts.

Scheduling new backup jobs in large environments while avoiding schedule overlaps may be a time-consuming and difficult task. NAKIVO Backup & Replication v7.2 Beta includes the Calendar Dashboard, which provides an easy way to schedule data protection jobs. Using the Calendar Dashboard requires no special skills. The dashboard displays all the past, current, and future backup jobs in a simple calendar view. Thus, finding free slots in the backup window is quite easy.

"We are focused on improving user experience and adding highly demanded features to NAKIVO Backup & Replication. Today, we are excited to invite our customers, partners, and IT professionals to download and try the new v7.2 Beta," said Bruce Talley, CEO and co-founder of NAKIVO.
