Features in Backup & Replication v10 include:
Backup to Wasabi
Wasabi has disrupted the cloud storage market by offering fast and reliable cloud object storage at one fifth the price of major competitors. With a single, all-purpose storage tier and no fees for egress ad API requests, it has made it for businesses to forecast storage costs and manage cloud-based data. And now, with the release of backup to Wasabi, the company’s customers can perform a range of full and granular recoveries tailored to their specific business needs.
Backup & Replication allows customers to unlock potential of Wasabi hot cloud storage:
Send backups and backup copies of virtual and physical machines, Oracle databases and Amazon EC2 instances to Wasabi.
Reduce backup sizes with data reduction techniques and incremental backups to cut storage costs.
Eliminate downtime by instantly booting VMs directly from backups stored on Wasabi.
Restore individual files and application objects to source and custom locations directly from Wasabi backups.
Automate data protection with policies, Job Chaining and scheduled routine backup jobs.
“Wasabi is changing the way businesses approach cloud storage by combining affordability and simplicity with speed and reliability,” said Bruce Talley, CEO, Nakivo. “We are thrilled to partner with Wasabi and provide a data protection solution to allow businesses to maximize the advantages offered by Wasabi.“
“By combining Wasabi’s hot cloud storage with Nakivo Backup & Replication, IT decision makers are empowered with a better choice to simplify their data protection,” said Dave Friend, CEO, Wasabi. “In partnership with Nakivo, Wasabi enables more businesses to focus on growth, innovation and the other critical business functions that data powers for them – not on its overpriced, complicated storage.”

vSphere 7 support
Backup & Replication supports backup, replication and recovery for VMs running on vSphere 7, last version of VMware’s server virtualization platform. This enables users to leverage the functionality of vSphere 7 while ensuring their virtual infrastructure remains protected.
Full P2V recovery
Backup & Replication can now recover physical machine backups to VMware VMs. Full P2V Recovery creates virtual versions of physical servers and workstations that are ready for production environments, simplifying physical to virtual migrations and recovery in case of machine failure.
Linux workstation backup
The company’s customers can perform application-aware, incremental backups of Linux workstations running Ubuntu 18.04 Desktop and Ubuntu 20.04 Desktop. In addition to recoveries of entire Linux workstations, Backup & Replication also offers granular recoveries to restore individual files and application objects from compressed and deduplicated backups.
Backup to Wasabi is available with perpetual or subscription licenses for Enterprise, Enterprise Plus, Enterprise Essentials, MSP Enterprise, and MSP Enterprise Plus editions. VMware Backup and Linux Workstation Backup are available with any edition of Backup & Replication while P2V Recovery is available with every edition except Basic. The 15-day free trial gives access to every feature, including Backup to Wasabi, and does not have any capacity restrictions.
“Our objective for Nakivo Backup & Replication v10 is to give businesses even greater flexibility and control over the whole data protection process,” said Bruce Talley, CEO, Nakivo. “We deepened the pool of protected environments with support for vSphere 7 and Linux workstations, added a new cloud storage destination in Wasabi and introduced P2V Recovery to shorten RTOs and simplify physical to virtual migrations.“
“With Nakivo Backup & Replication, we were able to simplify DR, save costs, and utilize existing NAS servers. The licensing costs that were offered by Nakivo turned out to be cheaper than the yearly maintenance costs of our previous product,” says Alejandro Canet, IT project coordinator, Save the Children Spain.
