What’s New in v10.5 Beta?
Keep your data safe and your environment healthy
Gain complete visibility into the performance and health of your VMware vSphere infrastructure. Using a single dashboard, monitor CPU, RAM and disk usage of your VMware vSphere hosts and VMs, as well as disk usage of your VMware vSphere datastores. The dashboard provides both real-time and historical data allowing you to analyze performance trends, investigate performance issues and anticipate future processing and storage needs.
Hardened Virtual Appliance
Hardened Virtual Appliance (VA) offers a simple way to deploy NAKIVO Backup & Replication and protect data against ransomware. Deploy the solution as a pre-configured VA running Ubuntu Server and protect your backup data from deletion and encryption by ransomware. Backups sent to a repository deployed as part of the VA can be made immutable for a specified period of time. Not even a superuser can modify or delete backups or lift immutability.
