NAKIVO updates the Free Edition in v3.5 of NAKIVO Backup & Replication to enable archiving to cloud as well as adds new features to the paid editions of the product


NAKIVO Inc., - #1 virtualization data protection software provider – has announced today that it has released v3.5 of NAKIVO Backup & Replication. The new version extends the functionality of the Free Edition to enable automated integration with Amazon cloud and also adds new features to the paid editions of the product – such as staged replication and reuse of existing VM backups and replicas – as well as other performance and reliability improvements.

CLOUD INTEGRATION: Amazon cloud is a cost-effective and reliable destination for keeping VM backups. In v3.5, the Free Edition can be automatically integrated with Amazon cloud in less than ten minutes, complete a 2GB VM backup to Amazon cloud within five minutes, and recover files from a VM backup at Amazon cloud in under one minute. The Free Edition can also utilize advanced VM data protection features, including Network Acceleration to increase data transfer speed, Deduplication and Compression to reduce data size, and AES 256 Encryption to ensure data security.

STAGED REPLICATION: VMs are often large, causing the initial (full) VM replication to be slow and can also put an undesirable load on the network. To speed up the initial VM replication and save network bandwidth, NAKIVO Backup & Replication can perform staged replication. This feature provides the ability to back up or replicate to a removable media (such as an external USB drive) and then create a new replication job that will use the transferred VMs as a target and perform only incremental replication.

REUSE OF BACKUPS AND REPLICAS: If a backup or replication job is lost (due to accidental job deletion, or because jobs need to be recreated in a new copy of the product), NAKIVO Backup & Replication enables the mapping of new jobs to existing source VMs, backups, and replicas to avoid transferring full VM data over the network again.

PRICING & AVAILBAILITY: NAKIVO Backup & Replication v3.5 Free Edition is available now at no cost and with no limitations on the number of hosts or VMs.

NAKIVO Backup & Replication comes in two paid editions that have the same feature set:

The Essentials Edition works only with VMware vSphere Essentials and Essentials+ and costs $199 (€169, £149) per socket.

The Pro Edition works with VMware vSphere Essentials, Essentials+, Standard, Enterprise, and Enterprise+ and costs $399 (€329, £269) per socket.

The paid editions of NAKIVO Backup & Replication v3.5 offer a complete data protection feature set for VMware virtualized environments, including local and offsite VM backup and replication, support for live applications & databases, file recovery from local and offsite backups, deduplication, network acceleration, encryption, and advanced reporting. The upcoming v4 extends the feature set to industry-first multi-tenancy, self-service, Exchange objects recovery, and backup verification.

“Storing VM backups offsite is the only way to ensure recovery in case of disaster, yet most businesses have just a single office and budget for only onsite backups, leaving their business vulnerable to disasters,” said Bruce Talley, CEO and Co-Founder of NAKIVO Inc. “Our mission is to help businesses protect their virtualized data, both on and offsite. Today we are proud to announce the general availability of NAKIVO Backup & Replication v3.5 Free Edition with VM backup to cloud.”
