What's New - Nakivo Backup and Replication v7 Beta 

  • Nakivo has successfully added the support for Hyper-v 2016 and 2012 providing image based, application aware and incremental hyper-v backup solutions ensuring consistency of our applications and database.
  • No need to worry about choosing a different repository for our VMware, Hyper-v and AWS EC2 backups, single repository can be used for the same and and backups are automatically compressed and deduplicated across to save on storage space.
  • We can set up the backup jobs and send the backup copies offsite and also to AWS and Azure clouds ensuring the safety of our data in case of primary backup failure.
  • In addition to Hyper-v backup we can also see another important feature which has been added i.e Hyper -v replication which can help us in creating and maintaining identical copies of Hyper- v virtual machines also known as replicas which are being replicated and remains in power off state ensuring no resources are being consumed and can be powered on instantly. 
I will be dedicating more articles on Nakivo backup and replication v7 testing out these functionalities and features in my Home lab environment so stay tuned :-)
