Log Truncation in NAKIVO Backup & Replication
Transaction log files in Microsoft Exchange Server, Microsoft SQL Server and Oracle Database record all data modifications and facilitate recovery. Deleting these logs can lead to data loss. NAKIVO Backup & Replication deletes (truncates) transaction logs on source machines only after they have been successfully written to backups or replicas. The solution uses Application-Aware Mode to ensure that data is consistent and recoverable.
Enable log truncation when creating or scheduling new workflows and let NAKIVO Backup & Replication do the rest. Once a backup or replication is complete, the solution connects to Microsoft Exchange Server, Microsoft SQL Server or Oracle Database and identifies the transaction logs that have been already added. Then, NAKIVO Backup & Replication automatically deletes these files from source VMs and instances, freeing up disk space on production machines.
Enable log truncation for backup or replication of VMware vSphere VMs, Microsoft Hyper-V VMs, EC2 instances and physical Windows machines. NAKIVO Backup & Replication supports log truncation for Microsoft Exchange Server, Microsoft SQL Server and Oracle Database while ensuring instant granular recovery of objects to the original or a different location.
