NAKIVO Releases v6.1 for VMware Backup and Recovery

NAKIVO Backup & Replication v6.1 provides cool new features, including instant object recovery for Microsoft Exchange 2016/2013, Microsoft Exchange 2016/2013 logs truncation, Hot Add for fast LAN-free VMware backup and replication, job chaining, as well as performance and reliability improvements.

Campbell, CA, United States — August 2, 2016

NAKIVO Inc., one of the fastest-growing virtualization and cloud backup software companies for VMware and Amazon AWS environments, today announced that it has released NAKIVO Backup & Replication v6.1. The new version improves VMware backup performance, speeds up recovery, and simplifies backup management.

Microsoft Exchange is the industry's leading platform for e-mail, calendaring, and messaging. The new NAKIVO Backup & Replication v6.1 extends the support of its Instant Object Recovery feature to the latest releases of Microsoft Exchange: 2016 and 2013. Now, customers can instantly browse, search, and recover Microsoft Exchange 2016 and 2013 objects (such as emails) directly from compressed and deduplicated VMware VM backups, without the need to restore the entire VM first.

In addition to improved recovery, NAKIVO Backup & Replication v6.1 can now also truncate log files of Microsoft Exchange 2016 and 2013. The transaction logs record all changes that are made to an Exchange Server database. Over time, these log files accumulate and can consume all of the available disk space, if not periodically removed.

To further improve VMware backup speed, NAKIVO Backup & Replication v6.1 introduces the new Hot Add feature, which enables the product to read and write data directly from/to VM datastores, bypassing LAN. By automatically using Hot Add, the new version offloads production LAN from the data protection traffic while significantly increasing the VMware backup and recovery speed.

NAKIVO Backup & Replication v6.1 also simplifies VMware backup management by introducing job chaining. With this feature, a job can finish its tasks and then trigger another job in a chain. This way, for example, it’s easy to set up a chain where a VM backup job saves data locally, and then triggers a Backup Copy job that sends backup copies to Amazon Cloud.

"We are excited to release the new NAKIVO Backup & Replication v6.1," said Bruce Talley, CEO and co-founder of NAKIVO. “We are committed to delivering functionality that helps our customers meet their RTO and RPO objectives for VMware backup and recovery."

NAKIVO Backup & Replication is VMware-certified, purely agentless, can be installed on Linux and Windows, deployed as a pre-configured VMware Virtual Appliance and AWS Amazon Machine Image, and can also be installed directly on Synology NAS to create a high-performance VM backup appliance. NAKIVO Backup & Replication has a simple and intuitive Web interface, supports live applications and databases, provides instant recovery of VMs, files, and application objects directly from compressed and deduplicated backups, speeds up data transfer with network acceleration, and reduces data size with global deduplication and compression.
