NAKIVO Inc., #1 VM data protection software provider, has announced today that it has released NAKIVO Backup & Replication v3.0 with support for file recovery from local and cloud based VM backups, single click integration with Amazon cloud, and advanced reporting.
Downloading an entire backup from the cloud to recover just a few critical files can consume an unacceptable amount of time. However, with NAKIVO Backup & Replication v3.0, files can be instantly accessed and restored from any VM backup, regardless whether it’s a few feet or few thousand miles away, enabling rapid operational recovery from anywhere, including backups stored in remote public clouds.
While NAKIVO Backup & Replication has long supported manual integration with Amazon, Azure, Dropbox, Google, and Rackspace public clouds, new automated single-click integration is now available for Amazon. NAKIVO Backup & Replication can be automatically integrated with Amazon cloud in under ten minutes, complete a 2GB VM backup to Amazon in just five minutes, and recover files from a VM backup at Amazon in less than one minute. Backups sent to Amazon are secured with 256-bit encryption in flight and at rest.
NAKIVO Backup & Replication v3.0 provides VM backup, replication and recovery reporting on any job, group of jobs, or all defined jobs. Additionally, reports can be scheduled, automatically generated and sent via email.
In addition new features, NAKIVO Backup & Replication v3.0 offers a complete data protection feature set for virtualized environments, including Web 2.0 UI, local and offsite VM backup and replication, support for live applications & databases (Microsoft Active Directory, Microsoft Exchange, Microsoft SQL, Oracle, etc.), deduplication, compression, and encryption.
“Backup speed is important, but recovery speed is even more important. With NAKIVO Backup & Replication, VM and file recovery is 60X faster than our previous backup solution,” said Milko Mihov, IT manager of GRW Engineering. “NAKVIO enables us to now have greater overall uptime while also protecting our VMs more frequently to meet shorter recovery point objectives.”
“NAKIVO with its 3.0 release hits an important milestone in cloud integrated VM data protection by providing Amazon EC2 integration and an often overlooked capability of file level recovery from cloud stored backups,” said George Crump, Chief Steward of Storage Switzerland. “This further enables SMB data centers to minimize their onsite storage investment and fully leverage the cloud.”
“NAKIVO Backup & Replication v2 was great however they have included file level restoration in v3. Finally we have a VM backup and replication rival to the legacy VM backup vendors which shares the most of the feature set but for a fraction of the cost!” said Rob Jennings, Technical Services Manager of Ancar B Technologies, Ltd.
“NAKIVO is addressing the growing trend and challenges facing IT professionals to protect their virtualized data locally while also leveraging public clouds for offsite disaster recovery,” said Bruce Talley, CEO and co-founder of NAKIVO. “Last year we were excited to be the first to market with a completely integrated solution for protecting virtualized data with VM backups locally, offsite, and in public clouds. This release expands on that lead, with additional functionality addressing the recovery challenges facing our rapidly expanding customer base.”
