Screenshot Verification for VMware VM Backups & Replicas

There's an old saying "Your data is only as good as your last backup." That’s true: taking a successful VMware VM backup is only the first step in the data protection process. The second, just as important as the first one, is verifying that your backup can be successfully restored. With NAKIVO Backup & Replication, you can be sure that all your backups are good and that you can recover files, application objects, and entire VMs should there be a need.

The Screenshot Verification can automatically verify all VMware VM backups and replicas and send screenshots of recovered VMs as a proof. Here’s how it works:

  • For VMware VM Backups: After a VM backup is completed, NAKIVO Backup & Replication recovers the VM with Flash VM Boot, disables networking on the VM to prevent network connections, makes a screenshot of the booted OS, discards the recovered VM, and sends a report with the screenshot via email.
  • For VMware VM replicas: After a VM replication is completed, NAKIVO Backup & Replication disables networking on the VM replica to prevent network connections, powers on the replica, makes a screenshot of the booted OS, then powers off the replica and reverts it back to the original recovery point.

Screenshot Verification can also be run ad hoc for any backup or replica or scheduled to run on a particular day.
