NAKIVO Backup & Replication Version 10 Released

A few days ago, NAKIVO release version 10 of their Backup & Replication product which offers data protection of virtual, physical, cloud and SaaS environments.

One of the most important updates to this release is the suport for VMware vSphere 7. All Nakivo Backup & Replication functionality available for earlier vSphere versions are included in the v10 release including:

  • Backup
  • Replication
  • Recovery (Granular)
  • Disaster Recovery orchestration

In addition to supporting vSphere 10, Nakivo Backup & Replication version 10 also includes the following new functionality.

  • Backup to Wasabi cloud object storage service – I haven’t tried Wasabi myself but their price and model with no fee for no fees for egress traffic and API requests sounds really interesting.
  • P2V – Take physical server backup and restore as a VMware VM.
  • Ubuntu 18.04 and 20.04 application aware and incremental backups. As oyu know backups are good but you need to be able to recover as well and Nakivo v10 offers full recoveries of the entire machine and individual files. The release announcements also says restore of application objects and i need to find out what application objects. When i do i’ll update the blog post.

There has been improvements/updates to the UI as well to make it even more intuitive and simpler to use.
