NAKIVO Inc., has released NAKIVO Backup & Replication v5.6. The new version provides the ability to instantly verify VMware VM backups by instantly recovering VMs from the compressed and deduplicated backup repository and sending a screenshot of the booted VMs as a proof of recoverability.

After a VM backup is completed, the NAKIVO Backup & Replication recovers the VM with Flash VM Boot, makes a screenshot of the booted OS, discards the recovered VM, and sends a report with the screenshot via email. This way VMware administrators ensure that VM backups are good and recoverable, and can provide screenshots as a proof to their management. Screenshot Verification can also be run ad hoc or scheduled to run on a particular day.
