Why Use Global Search?

Managing a large backup infrastructure with dozens of jobs and hundreds of VMs can be a challenging task. Even such simple actions as finding unprotected VMs or locating a specific VM backup might take you some time – time that could be better spent on other things.

NAKIVO Backup & Replication includes a powerful Global Search feature, which can help you quickly find any item you need by simply entering a name (or part of the name) into the search box. You can refine search results by using filters (for example, you could choose to view only VM backups). What’s more, you can select from among the items found and instantly perform mass actions on them, such as creating a new job for unprotected VMs or adding them to an existing job. This way, managing your backup infrastructure becomes much easier.

Advantages of Global Search

With the Global Search feature, you can:

  • Search: Instantly search for VMs, backups, replicas, jobs, groups, backup repositories, and transporters.
  • Filter: Choose to view a subset of results – for example, unprotected VMs only.
  • Get information: View the item details, such as size, host, datastores, networks, and protection status.
  • Act: Once you’ve found what you were looking for, you can take an action – add multiple unprotected VMs to a job, start a recovery, run a job, etc.

The Global Search feature of NAKIVO Backup & Replication is an easy-to-use tool that helps you manage large backup infrastructures and saves you time.
