NAKIVO Inc., the fastest-growing provider of virtualization data protection software, has announced today that it provides free Not for Resale (NFR) licenses to VMware professionals: current VMUG members, VMware vExperts, VCIs, VCPs, VTSPs, and VSPs can receive an NFR license of NAKIVO Backup & Replication v5. The NFR license keys are available for non-production use only, including educational, lab testing, evaluation, training, and demonstration purposes. NFR licenses are available at nakivo.com/en/free_nfr_license.htm.
The new version provides the ability to run VMware VMs directly from compressed and deduplicated VM backups, without recovering the entire VMs first. The Flash VM Boot feature works out-of-the-box for both Windows-based and Linux-based VMs and provides customers with a rich set of opportunities, enabling them to:
• Permanently recover VMs booted from backups;
• Access files and application objects of any application on any OS within seconds;
• Test system updates and application patches before applying them to production VMs;
• Verify the VM backups and ensure that OS and applications run properly;
• Copy VMDK files and then delete the virtual machine.
Named one of the top 10 coolest storage startups of 2014 by CRN, NAKIVO is delivering a new way for Cloud Providers, enterprises, and SMBs to protect their VMware environments more reliably, efficiently, and cost effectively. NAKIVO Backup & Replication is VMware-certified, purely agentless, and can be deployed on both Linux and Windows. Featuring a simple and intuitive Web UI, the product can back up and replicate VMware VMs onsite, offsite, and to private/public clouds (including single-click integration with Amazon cloud). NAKIVO Backup & Replication supports live applications and databases, instantly recovers files and application objects directly from compressed and de-duplicated VM backups, speeds up data transfer with network acceleration, and reduces data size with global deduplication and compression.
“NAKIVO Backup & Replication is loaded with new technology and capabilities to protect and recover VMs locally, offsite, and in clouds. We are excited provide VMware professionals with a free yet powerful solution for their home and non-production labs,” said Bruce Talley, CEO and Founder of NAKIVO.
