NAKIVO Inc., a VM data protection software provider, has announced the Beta program launch for NAKIVO Backup & Replication v3.0. The program provides early access to the upcoming version of NAKIVO Backup & Replication featuring single-click integration with Amazon cloud and an industry-first file level recovery from VM backups stored in a public cloud environment.
A sound data protection strategy calls for keeping business-critical VM backups offsite and public clouds provide a cost-effective and reliable answer. But until now, cloud based backups could only serve for disaster recovery purposes, because downloading an entire backup from a cloud and then running file recovery consumes an unacceptable amount of time. With NAKIVO Backup & Replication v3.0, files can be restored directly from backups stored in a public cloud, thus enabling operational recovery from the cloud.
In addition to cloud backup and recovery features, NAKIVO Backup & Replication v3.0 Beta offers a complete data protection feature set for virtualized environments, including local and offsite VM backup and replication, support for live applications & databases (Microsoft Active Directory, Microsoft Exchange, Microsoft SQL, Oracle, etc.), file level recovery from local and offsite backups, deduplication, compression, encryption, as well as scheduled and on-demand reporting.
All Beta program participants get 15% discount on the released product, have a chance of winning a Google Nexus tablet, can provide direct input into development, influence product design, and request new features.
"We are excited to introduce v3.0 Beta of our winning backup and replication solution," said Bruce Talley, CEO, NAKIVO. "Together with VMware professionals - including vExperts, VCPs, and VCIs - we are developing the best product for the virtualization data protection market."
