VM Backup Appliance Based on Asustor NAS 


Nakivo backup and replication appliance soon would be available on ASUSTOR NAS which will help to turn ASUSTOR NAS into a VM backup appliance, the solution will help us to offload VMware or Hyper- V Infrastructure to a low cost NAS and to  keep our backup software, hardware, storage, and data deduplication within the same device like we have  been doing with QNAPSYNOLOGY and Western Digital NAS.

Microsoft SQL Log Truncation

Microsoft SQL Log Truncation is another feature which would be made available with Nakivo Backup and Replication v7.2 and has been announced which can automatically truncate transaction log files post successful Virtual Machine Backup or replica is created, preventing log files from growing.


Calendar Dashboard

Another cool feature which helps to schedule backup jobs from calendar and provides us a quick overview of all the Jobs with duration.


Instant Object Recovery for Microsoft SQL

Nakivo backup and replication helps us to instantly recover SQL objects (database and tables) directly from compressed deduplicated VM Backups, when working on recovery of the objects we can recover the objects back to SQL Server or to a different SQL Server.
