V5 Beta of Nakivo Backup & ReplicationWith Flash VM Boot for VMware
This is a Press Release edited by StorageNewsletter.com on 2014.10.13
NAKIVO Inc. announced the v5 open Beta Program.
It invites VMware professionals to try the new version of its Backup & Replication v5 Beta featuring the Flash VM Boot feature. All Beta Program participants completing the participation requirements will be rewarded with an Amazon gift card.
When you run the Flash VM Boot job, Backup & Replication creates a new VM without disks on the target ESXi server, then exposes VM disks from the Backup Repository as ISCSI targets, and then mounts the exposed disks to the created VM as RDM disks in virtual compatibility mode.
The Flash VM Boot feature provides the ability to boot VMware VMs directly from compressed and deduplicated VM backups, without recovering the entire VMs first. The backup from which the VM is started remains unchanged to preserve the integrity of the data.
The Flash VM Boot feature works for both Windows-based and Linux-based VMs and provides customers with a set of opportunities, enabling them to:
- Access files and application objects of any application on any OS withins
- Test system updates and application patches before applying them to production VMs
- Verify the VM backups and ensure that OSes and applications run properly
- Copy VMDK files and then delete the VM.
Named one of the top 10 coolest storage start-ups of 2014 by CRN, NAKIVO is delivering a new way for cloud providers, enterprises, and SMBs to protect their VMware environments more reliably, efficiently, and cost effectively.
Backup & Replication is VMware-certified, agentless, and can be deployed on both Linux and Windows. Featuring a simple Web UI, the product can backup and replicate VMware VMs onsite, offsite, and to private/public clouds (including single-click integration with Amazon cloud). It supports live applications and databases, recovers files and application objects directly from compressed and de-duplicated VM backups, speeds up data transfer with network acceleration, and reduces data size with global deduplication and compression.
"We continue to improve NAKIVO Backup & Replication and introduce new features that are requested by cloud providers, enterprises, and SMBs," said Bruce Talley, CEO and co-founder, NAKIVO. "We encourage VMware professionals to join our open Beta Program and help us build a better VM backup solution."
