NAKIVO Gives Away v5.6 with Screenshot Verification to VMware Professionals

NAKIVO Backup & Replication v5.6 featuring Screenshot Verification for VMware VM backups is now available free of charge to VMware Professionals.

Campbell, CA, United States — June 18, 2015

NAKIVO Inc., the fastest-growing provider of virtualization data protection software for VMware environments, has announced today that it offers free Not for Resale (NFR) licenses to VMware professionals: current VMUG members, VMware vExperts, VCIs, VCPs, VTSPs, and VSPs can receive a free NFR license for NAKIVO Backup & Replication v5.6. The NFR license keys are available for non-production use only, including educational, lab testing, evaluation, training, and demonstration purposes. NFR licenses are available at /resources/download/free-nfr-license/ for more information.

NAKIVO Backup & Replication v5.6 provides the ability to verify VMware VM backups by instantly recovering VMs from the compressed and deduplicated backup repository and sending a screenshot of the booted VMs as a proof of recoverability. After a VM backup is completed, NAKIVO Backup & Replication recovers the VM with Flash VM Boot, makes a screenshot of the booted OS, discards the recovered VM, and sends a report with the screenshot via email. This way VMware administrators can ensure that VM backups are recoverable, and can provide screenshots as a proof to their management. Screenshot Verification can also be run ad hoc or scheduled to run on a particular day.

"We are excited provide VMware professionals with a new powerful solution for their test labs," said Bruce Talley, CEO and Founder of NAKIVO. "NAKIVO Backup & Replication v5.6 further improves reliability of NAKIVO Backup & Replication and helps ensuring that business-critical VMs are recoverable."
