Application-consistent Backup

NAKIVO Backup & Replication v9.0 can now perform incremental, application-aware backups of physical Microsoft Windows Servers. The solution provides application-consistent backups of business-critical applications and databases running on physical Windows Server machines, including Microsoft Exchange, SQL, SharePoint, Active Directory, and Oracle.

Global Data Deduplication

Physical machine backups can be stored in a regular backup repository, along with backups of VMs and AWS EC2 instances. All backups in a backup repository can be automatically deduplicated, regardless of the platform, so that only unique data blocks are saved. This will help to reduce the amount of storage space used by physical machine backups.

Instant Granular Recovery

NAKIVO Backup & Replication v9.0 can instantly recover files, folders, and Microsoft application objects (Exchange, Active Directory, and SQL) directly from deduplicated physical machine backups.  Additionally, customers can use the Universal Application Object Recovery feature to instantly recover objects from any other applications.

 Physical to Virtual (P2V)

In addition to instantly recovering files, folders, and application objects from physical machine backups, to respective servers or location now you can restore physical Windows Server backups to VMware and Hyper-V VMs.

Per-machine Licensing

This is one of the cool licensing option available now, starting just at $17 per machine/year, NAKIVO offers a simple, unique, and cost-effective per-machine subscription. A single per-machine license can cover either a physical machine, VMware VM, Hyper-V VM, Nutanix AHV VM, or AWS EC2 instance. This gives customers the opportunity to remove vendor locks and move their workloads freely between platforms without having to change their data protection licensing.
