As cloud adoption increases, more companies are finding that cloud is not the answer to all their problems and moving data back on-premise.

Businesses need to be creative when exploring backup and recovery solutions for their use case to come up with an option that delivers great performance in the most cost-effective way.

Robust data protection needs to come in a package that protects virtual, physical, and cloud environments – something NAKIVO understands.

That's why the upcoming release of NAKIVO Backup and Replication 9.1 will introduce new features including Native Backup to Tape, physical Linux server backup, physical workstation backup, and instant verification features.

Native backup to tape

Tape backup remains one of the most reliable and cost-effective means for long-term data retention to this day and widely used by large enterprises as offline backup storage.

Due to their longevity and portability, tape cartridges can store large amounts of data offline and ensure long-term archival stability and are the best option when you have large amounts of rarely accessed data which needs to be retained for a long period of time.

Physical workstation backup

Version 9.1 will also allow Windows users to backup physical Windows workstations incrementally and can be automatically compressed and deduplicated.

Additionally, NAKIVO Backup - Replication v9.1 can now back up Linux-based servers. This feature extends the solution's platform coverage which already includes support for virtual (VMware, Hyper-V, Nutanix AHV), physical (Windows Server) and cloud (AWS EC2) servers.

Physical Linux server backup

NAKIVO Backup - Replication leverages a proprietary change tracking technology to perform incremental backups of Linux-based servers, improving backup performance and lowering storage space requirements.

Instant verification

With NAKIVO Backup - Replication, you can instantly verify your VMware and Hyper-V backups and replicas.

The solution performs verification upon job completion by either making a screenshot of the booted OS or checking the availability of VMware Tools or Hyper-V Integration Services.

“Our customers can now protect their virtual, physical, and cloud environments with a single product while improving reliability and extending recovery options.
