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 www.nakivo.com/en/nfr/free-nfr-license.html 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."
Named one of the "Top 10 Virtualization Startups you'll Hear about in 2015" by TechTarget, and one of the "Top 20 Coolest Cloud Computing Vendors of 2015" by CRN Magazine, NAKIVO enables protecting VMware environments more reliably, efficiently, and cost effectively. NAKIVO Backup & Replication is VMware-certified, purely agentless, and can be deployed on both Linux and Windows.

NAKIVO Backup & Replication supports live applications and databases, and enables instant recovery of VMs, files, and application objects directly from compressed and deduplicated VM backups.
