Nakivo Backup & Replication v10.3 beta


Nakivo released the beta of the upcoming new version of Nakivo Backup & Replication 10.3, the backup software solution for VMware vSphere and Microsoft Hyper-V environments.

The new version introduces new interesting features, such as extending Microsoft 365 capabilities protection and storage snapshots support.


Nakivo Backup & Replication v10.3 what's new


Backup for Microsoft 365 Contacts and Calendars

In addition to Microsoft Office 365 backup, SharePoint Online backup, and Microsoft 365 OneDrive backup, the new version 10.3 provides the capability to protect also Exchange Online contacts and calendars within the same Backup Job. Calendar and contact items can be restored to the original or to a different mailbox in your Microsoft 365 environment.


Support for storage snapshots

Nakivo introduces the support for HPE 3PAR storage snapshots to backup VMware virtual machines offloading the production environment. Backups and replicas are created directly from storage snapshots instead of regular VM snapshots. This reduces dramatically the load on the production infrastructure during backup operations.



Direct Connect

With Nakivo v10.3 MSPs no longer need to establish a VPN connection to access customer's remote resources. A secure connection between MSP and customer can be established automatically via a single port connection with no need to install additional software.



VMware vCloud Director Backup

Designed especially for large enterprises and MSPs, version 10.3 provides the capability to backup vCloud Director objects (vApps, individual VMs and storage policies) and restore them to the vCloud Director hierarchy.



Graphic improvements

Some graphic improvements has been added to the upcoming new release, especially a new redesigned login page.


Nakivo Backup & Replication 10.3 is available for testing at Nakivo's website.
