Advanced Bandwidth Throttling
By design, Nakivo tries to take the maxium available bandwidth to perform backup jobs. If the business requires to run backup jobs also during business hours without collapsing the network, the Advanced Bandwidth Throttling feature (Bandwidth Throttling was introduced in version 7.4) allows to control the amount of bandwidth used by the backup processes. This feature provides different customization options to manage the bandwidth usage through dedicated rules (Global or Per job basis) based on specific requirements.
You can can create bandwidth rules accessing the Bandwidth throttling section from Settings > General.
A cool new feature in version 7.5 allows you to restore workloads to different platforms, useful in a multi-hypervisor environment scenario. VM disks can be exported in the requested format and restored on a different hypervisor regardless of the source platform.
From the Dashboard, click Recover in the main menu and select Export backups to start the wizard.
After selecting the VM backup to process, in the Options section you have to specify the disk format to export by choosing between VMDK, VHD and VHDX.
