Nakivo has announced the newer version of their Backup and Replication solutions. Nakivo is continuously adding more and more features to their Backup solution. In this post we will see on what main features are announced in the Nakivo 8.1 Backup & Replication.
Policy Based Data Protection:
Policy Based Protection is quite simple but more useful feature for the day to day life, where once you have configured policies VMs will be automatically protected by the Nakivo Backup. You don’t have to manually add those VMs in to Nakivo. You can configure policies based on VM name, tag, size, location, VM configuration, power state, or any combination of these parameters whichever you required.
So How does it work:
Policies can be created for VM backup, replication, and backup copy jobs in just a few steps. Simply select the criteria (e.g., a VM’s name, size, tag, etc.), enter the necessary search parameters, and have all the matching items included in the job automatically. For instance, you can choose to back up all VMware VMs tagged “Accounting” exceeding 100 GB in size and having more than 2 GB of allocated RAM. Once the policy is created, NAKIVO Backup & Replication recognizes newly added VMs or instances with the same characteristics and automatically includes them in the existing job.
Universal Object Recovery:
As the name says Universal Object Recovery, it allows you to recover any object in your infrastructure – whatever the application or file system – in a matter of minutes. Simply mount the most recent backup to a VM and then recover the necessary data using the native application tools. It is very useful when you lose any of your application or database data , so that with this feature you can easily recovery any objects.
So How does it work:
You can use NAKIVO Backup & Replication to recover application objects in a few simple steps: just open the Universal Object Recovery Wizard and select the appropriate recovery point. Once you choose the VM disks to be mounted, NAKIVO Backup & Replication attaches such disks to the specified VM or physical machine. All you need to do after the mount is log into the corresponding VM or physical machine and use native application tools to recover the data.
SSL Certificate Support:
New Version of Nakivo comes with the Added security of SSL so that now you have secured HTTPS connection while accessing Nakivo Backup & Replication.
