NAKIVO Inc., a provider of data protection software for VMware virtualized environments and cloud backup, has released NAKIVO Backup & Replication v4.1. The latest version introduces new features for cloud, hosting, and service providers who can use NAKIVO Backup & Replication to provide VM Backup-as-a-Service, Replication-as-a-Service, and Disaster-Recovery-as-a-Service in their cloud environments.

NAKIVO provides an HTTP API that enables customers to automate and orchestrate VM backup, replication, and recovery jobs within NAKIVO Backup & Replication. The kit includes API documentation and code examples and has been designed so that even non-developers can use it. The API enables cloud, hosting, and service providers to integrate NAKIVO Backup & Replication v4.1 with cloud monitoring, automation, and orchestration solutions.

NAKIVO Backup & Replication can now automatically create, encrypt, and upload support bundles to a NAKIVO support server. This will help NAKIVO support to quickly identify a root cause of an issue and provide a solution. In addition, the new Call Home feature can help NAKIVO Support to discover, investigate, and suggest possible resolutions to a problem.

In addition to Windows and Linux installers, NAKIVO provides pre-configured Virtual Appliances (VAs) which enable a streamlined deployment of the product. In the new version, pre-configured VAs now have a new UI which enables users to configure VA networking and increase backup repository size without the need to use Linux commands.
A VMware data store cluster is a collection of data stores with shared resources and a shared management interface. NAKIVO Backup & Replication v4.1 now supports data store clusters that can be selected as a target for VM replication or as a target for recovery from VM backup.

Built for virtualization, NAKIVO Backup & Replication has been certified by VMware and offers a complete VM data protection feature set for SMB, Enterprise, and Cloud Provider virtualized environments. The product can be deployed on Windows and Linux, backs up and replicates VMware VMs onsite, offsite, and to private/public clouds, supports live applications and databases, instantly 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.
