NAKIVO releases v8.1 of Backup & Replication


NAKIVO announced the release of NAKIVO Backup & Replication v8.1 that enables the businesses to manage their data protection routines by reducing manual work to a minimum and provides universal recovery of any application objects.

Policy-Based Data Protection
Managing a large VMWare, Hyper-V, or AWS infrastructure is a challenging task. NAKIVO Backup & Replication v8.1 brings a considerable improvement to this area by introducing Policy-Based Data Protection. This innovative functionality allows customers to create backup, replication, and backup copy policies to fully automate data protection processes.

A policy can be based on VM name, size, location, power state, tag, or a combination of multiple parameters. Once set up, policies can regularly scan the entire infrastructure for VMs that match the criteria and protect the VMs automatically. This way, all important VMs and EC2 instances are protected with minimum to zero manual input.

Universal Object Recovery
To further improve data recovery processes, NAKIVO Backup & Replication introduces Universal Object Recovery that enables customers to recover any application objects back to source, a custom location, or even a physical server.

The Universal Object Recovery functionality is indispensable when it comes to saving time and resources required for restoration. Customers can recover individual items from any file system or application by mounting VM disks from backups to a target recovery location, with no need to restore the entire VM first.

“We are expanding our product’s functionality to further improve reliability, flexibility, and ease-of-use. Policy-Based Data Protection in v8.1 is yet another significant step in this direction. By fully automating core data protection tasks, NAKIVO Backup & Replication minimizes the possibility of human error and helps customers gain more confidence in their data protection strategies.” said Bruce Talley, CEO at NAKIVO Inc.
