NAKIVO Launches v5 Beta with Flash VM Boot for VMware

The v5 Beta of NAKIVO Backup & Replication was released today enabling early testing of the Flash VM Boot feature, which provides the ability to run VMware VMs directly from compressed and deduplicated VM backups.

NAKIVO Inc., the fastest growing virtualization and cloud backup software company for VMware environments, has announced today the launch of the v5 open Beta Program. NAKVIO invites VMware professionals to try the new version of NAKIVO Backup & Replication v5 Beta featuring the Flash VM Boot feature. All Beta Program participants completing the Beta Program participation requirements will be rewarded with an Amazon gift card. More details and v5 Beta download are available at www.nakivo.com/beta_5_0.htm

The Flash VM Boot feature provides the ability to boot VMware VMs directly from compressed and deduplicated VM backups, without recovering the entire VMs first. The backup from which the VM is started remains unchanged to preserve the integrity of the data.

The Flash VM Boot feature works right out of the box for both Windows-based and Linux-based VMs and provides customers with a rich set of opportunities, enabling them to: - Access files and application objects of any application on any OS within seconds - Test system updates and application patches before applying them to production VMs - Verify the VM backups and ensure that OSes and applications run properly - Copy VMDK files and then delete the virtual machine.

Named one of the top 10 coolest storage startups of 2014 by CRN, NAKIVO is delivering a new way for Cloud Providers, enterprises, and SMBs to protect their VMware environments more reliably, efficiently, and cost effectively. NAKIVO Backup & Replication is VMware-certified, purely agentless, and can be deployed on both Linux and Windows. Featuring a simple and intuitive Web UI, the product can back up and replicate VMware VMs onsite, offsite, and to private/public clouds (including single-click integration with Amazon cloud). NAKIVO Backup & Replication 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.

EXECUTIVE QUOTE “We continue to improve NAKIVO Backup & Replication and introduce new features that are requested by Cloud Providers, enterprises, and SMBs,” said Bruce Talley, CEO and Co-Founder of NAKIVO. “We encourage VMware professionals to join our open Beta Program and help us build a better VM backup solution.”
