NAKIVO Fully Automates VM Data Protection with v8.1 Beta

NAKIVO, Inc., a fast-growing virtualization and cloud backup software company, today announced that NAKIVO Backup & Replication v8.1 Beta is available for testing. Every participant that fulfills all Beta Program requirements is eligible to receive an Amazon gift card.

The new version includes three cutting-edge new features, bringing the product’s automation capabilities to a whole new level and contributing to its overall flexibility.

NAKIVO Backup & Replication v8.1 Beta features:

  • Policy-Based Data Protection: NAKIVO Backup & Replication v8.1 Beta simplifies VM backup management by introducing rule-based policies for data protection processes. Rules can be created based on various criteria, such as VM size, location, power state, tag, etc. Once a policy is set, all existing and newly-added VMs that match the policy rules get protected under the relevant job automatically. Policy-Based Data Protection takes VM backup management to a whole new level, automating a major part of data protection processes and making sure all important VMs are duly protected.

  • Universal Object Recovery: NAKIVO Backup & Replication v8.1 Beta adds numerous recovery options and improves flexibility by introducing Universal Object Recovery. With the help of this feature, users can mount disks from VM backups directly to a VM or physical machine and then recover any application object using native application management tools.

  • SSL Certificate Installation: NAKIVO Backup & Replication v8.1 Beta allows users to import custom SSL certificates into NAKIVO Backup & Replication directly from the product’s UI. This allows for secure “https” connections, without putting sensitive data in danger of hacking attacks.

“Policy-Based Data Protection is a truly innovative, enterprise-grade functionality that automates VM protection across infrastructures of any size,” says Bruce Talley, CEO of NAKIVO Inc. “We are happy to be delivering even more comprehensive yet affordable data protection with each new version of NAKIVO Backup & Replication. Version 8.1 Beta once again proves our dedication to efficiency and excellence.”
