What's new in Nakivo Backup & Replication 9.1

After the announced capabilities presented in the beta version, the new backup features have been officially released in version 9.1:


Linux Server Backup

Physical Linux Servers can be now protected by Nakivo with incremental backups leveraging a proprietary CBT technology, and application-aware backups to keep data consistent. Backups can be stored in the cloud, on tape, or at a safe remote location.



Native Backup to Tape

To store long-term data retention, backup to tape is the most suitable option now fully supported in Nakivo with the new Native Backup to Tape feature. Both full and incremental backup copies to tape can be now executed in Nakivo Backup & Replication.


Multiple tape libraries or tape drives across multiple locations can be easily managed by Nakivo that provides a single pane of glass of the entire backup to tape infrastructure. LTO3 and later tape libraries are supported as well as AWS Virtual Tape Library (VTL).



Instant Verification

To ensure backups integrity and the full recoverability, Nakivo Backup & Replication verifies VMware and Hyper-V backups and replicas.

The software provides the following operations to verify stored backups functionality:

  • Boot verification - a test-recover of backed up VM is performed with Flash VM Boot feature keeping the network disabled and listening to the OS heartbeat to verify that the guest OS is up and running.
  • Screenshot verification - when the backup job has been completed, the VM is booted with the Flash VM boot feature then Nakivo makes a screenshot of the booted OS and checks the availability of VMware Tools or Hyper-V Integration Services.


Nakivo Backup & Replication 9.1 can be download as 30-day free trial.
