NAKIVO Releases v7.1 with Support for Hyper-V Failover Clusters for VM Backup

NAKIVO Backup & Replication v7.1 now supports Microsoft Hyper-V Failover Clusters, which can be selected for VM backup.

Campbell, CA, United States — May 30, 2017

NAKIVO Inc., a fast-growing software company for protecting virtualized and cloud environments announced today that it has released NAKIVO Backup & Replication v7.1, which provides support for Hyper-V Failover Clusters.

A Hyper-V Failover Cluster is a group of Hyper-V servers (nodes) that can use the Live Migration technology to move live VMs between nodes in the cluster without downtime.

Hyper-V Failover Clusters help improve availability and efficiency of the virtualized environment. If one cluster node fails, its VMs can be automatically started on a different cluster node. In addition, VMs in the cluster can be moved between nodes both manually and by Microsoft’s System Center Virtual Machine Manager (SCVMM) Dynamic Optimization feature that can automatically move VMs to distribute the load evenly between nodes. NAKIVO Backup & Replication v7.1 can track the VM location in the cluster and can continue to protect the VM regardless on which cluster node the VM is located.

As virtual environments change rapidly and new VMs are created on a daily basis, chasing and protecting those new VMs becomes a challenge. As a result, some VMs become unprotected and their data can be irreversibly lost. To solve this problem, NAKIVO Backup & Replication offers the container protection feature: Customers can add an entire Hyper-V Failover Cluster to VM backup and replication jobs. When an entire Failover Cluster is protected, NAKIVO Backup & Replication will monitor the cluster contents and will automatically add all new VMs in the Failover Cluster to the job. This way, all important VMs will always be protected.

"The new v7.1 release demonstrates our commitment to improve the support for Microsoft Hyper-V, which we have added to NAKIVO Backup & Replication in Q1 2017," said Bruce Talley, CEO of NAKIVO, Inc. "We see a great demand for a fast, reliable, ad affordable data protection solution for Hyper-V environments from our customers and partners, and NAKIVO Backup & Replication delivers on those demands."

Named "Top 20 Coolest Cloud Computing Vendors of 2016" by CRN, NAKIVO provides a better way for SMBs, enterprises, and cloud providers to protect and recover their virtualized and cloud environments more reliably, efficiently, and cost effectively.
