Backup & Replication v7.3 Beta
NAKIVO recently launched an open beta of Backup & Replication v7.3. You can sign up for the beta download at https://www.nakivo.com/blog/nakivo-backup-replication-v7-3-beta/.
NAKIVO Backup & Replication is now Deduplication Appliance friendly!
NAKIVO Backup & Replication provides support for enterprise-grade deduplication appliances such as EMC Data Domain, HP StoreOnce, NEC Hydrastor, Quantum DXi, and other similar appliances, which can be used as a backup target. NAKIVO Backup & Replication provides a special backup repository type with the special architecture optimized for working with deduplication devices. Thus, before backing up VM data to a deduplication appliance, you can choose to use this repository type, and your data will be backed up to the storage server at a great performance level.
NAKIVO Backup & Replication also provides its own built-in global data deduplication and compression. However, when backing up virtual machines to a deduplication appliance, performing double backup deduplication (i.e., first by NAKIVO Backup & Replication and later by the deduplication appliance itself) would make no sense and negatively affect the server performance as well as data reduction ratio. This is why VM backup deduplication and compression by NAKIVO Backup & Replication can be turned off.
