NAKIVO, Inc., has announced the release of NAKIVO Backup & Replication v8.1. NAKIVO says that the new version of the software ‘revolutionizes the way businesses manage their data protection routines by reducing manual work to a minimum’. In addition, v8.1 provides universal recovery of any application objects.

Managing a large VMWare, Hyper-V, or AWS infrastructure is a challenging task. NAKIVO Backup & Replication v8.1 brings a considerable improvement to this area by introducing Policy-Based Data Protection. This innovative functionality allows customers to create backup, replication, and backup copy policies to fully automate data protection processes.

A policy can be based on VM name, size, location, power state, tag, or a combination of multiple parameters. Once set up, policies can regularly scan the entire infrastructure for VMs that match the criteria and protect the VMs automatically. This way, all important VMs and EC2 instances are protected with minimum to zero manual input.

Universal Object Recovery

To further improve data recovery processes, NAKIVO Backup & Replication introduces Universal Object Recovery that enables customers to recover any application objects back to source, a custom location, or even a physical server.

The Universal Object Recovery functionality saves time and resources required for restoration. Customers can recover individual items from any file system or application by mounting VM disks from backups to a target recovery location, with no need to restore the entire VM first.
