NAKIVO, a virtualization and cloud backup software company for VMware environments, has released NAKIVO Backup & Replication v5.7. The new version provides full support for the recently released VMware vSphere 6, including support for Virtual Volumes (VVols), VMware Virtual SAN (VSAN) 2.0, as well as support for other new features introduced in vSphere 6.

NAKIVO Backup & Replication v5.7 also adds the Backup Repository Encryption feature. Now customers can choose to encrypt the entire backup repository to ensure backup data security. If the feature is enabled, the product will encrypt the repository destination (using ecryptfs for folders and cryptsetup (crypt-md) in LUKS mode for devices/partitions) prior to creating the backup repository. If the encrypted backup repository is imported in another instance of the product, the encryption password will be required to import the repository.

nakivo-backup-replication“We are excited to provide full support for VMware’s latest release of vSphere in NAKIVO Backup & Replication,” said Bruce Talley, CEO and co-founder of NAKIVO. “As a VMware Elite level partner, NAKIVO is committed to continuously improving the product to enable a better VMware data protection experience.”

NAKIVO Backup & Replication supports live applications and databases, instantly recovers VMs, 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.

Headquartered in Silicon Valley, NAKIVO is a privately-held software company that has been profitable since founding in 2012. The company serves more than 5,500 customers – including many Fortune 1,000 companies – and over 800 channel partners across 102 countries worldwide.
