NAKIVO, Inc., a fast-growing virtualization and cloud backup software company, today announced the general availability of NAKIVO Backup & Replication v8. The new version introduces the Site Recovery feature, which can help customers achieve business continuity and 24/7 availability of IT services.
NAKIVO Backup & Replication v8 provides:
Advanced Site Recovery Workflows: NAKIVO Backup & Replication v8 lets users build tailored recovery workflows to automate and simplify the entire site recovery process. For example, a Site Recovery job can include any combination of the following steps: gracefully shut down source VMs, run a final VM replication, change replica VM IPs, connect replica VMs to appropriate networks, set the replica VM boot order, verify successful recovery, send email notifications, etc.
Non-Disruptive Site Recovery Testing: The Site Recovery feature enables customers to define recovery time objectives (RTOs) for recovery workflows and perform scheduled non-disruptive site recovery testing. The tests can verify whether site recovery can run successfully and whether the recovery process can be completed within the target time frame.
Single-Click Site Recovery: With NAKIVO Backup & Replication, customers can perform planned failover, emergency failover, failback, and datacenter migration in a single click. Customers can create a single recovery workflow for an entire organization or create multiple workflows for individual departments, branch offices, etc.
All-in-One Availability Solution: Site Recovery is an integral feature of NAKIVO Backup & Replication and does not require separate licensing. With NAKIVO Backup & Replication v8, customers can use one solution for data backup, deduplication, granular restore, replication, and site recovery. All aspects of data protection and recovery can be managed from a single pane of glass and are covered by a single license.
Unprecedented Pricing: Until now, the cost of robust site recovery functionality has been prohibitive for most SMBs and even enterprises, with some solutions charging over $10,000 for just 25 VMs. With the release of v8, NAKIVO Backup & Replication can reduce the cost of data protection and site recovery dramatically. The Site Recovery feature is included in the Enterprise edition of NAKIVO Backup & Replication v8, which starts at $299 per socket and has no feature or capacity limitations.
“We are proud to make site recovery truly accessible to SMB and enterprise businesses alike,” says Bruce Talley, CEO of NAKIVO Inc. “NAKIVO Backup & Replication v8 with Site Recovery can help our customers achieve business continuity and cut downtime costs when disaster strikes.”
