NAKIVO Releases v9 with Support for Physical Windows Server Backup


Nakivo, a fast-growing software company dedicated to protecting virtualised and cloud environments, announces NAKIVO Backup & Replication v9, which now includes support for Physical windows server backup. This announcement Further strengthens Nakivo’s position in the market. Other features include Physical to virtual (p2V) simplifying the migration from Physical Servers to an impressive choice of Hypervisors, Instant granular recovery, and per virtual machine licensing.

New Features

Application-consistent Backup
NAKIVO Backup & Replication v9 can now perform incremental, application-aware backups of physical Microsoft Windows Servers. The solution provides application-consistent backups of business-critical applications and databases running on physical Windows Server machines, including Microsoft Exchange, SQL, SharePoint, Active Directory, and Oracle.

Global Data Deduplication
Physical machine backups can be stored in a regular backup repository, along with backups of VMs and AWS EC2 instances. All backups in a backup repository can be automatically deduplicated, regardless of the platform, so that only unique data blocks are saved. This can dramatically reduce the amount of storage space used by physical machine backups. 

Instant Granular Recovery
NAKIVO Backup & Replication v9 can instantly recover files, folders, and Microsoft application objects (Exchange, Active Directory, and SQL) directly from deduplicated physical machine backups.  Additionally, customers can use the Universal Application Object Recovery feature to instantly recover objects from any other applications.

Physical to Virtual (P2V) 
In addition to instantly recovering files, folders, and application objects from physical machine backups, customers can also restore physical Windows Server backups to VMware and Hyper-V VMs.

Per-machine Licensing
Starting at just $17 per machine/year, NAKIVO offers a simple, unique, and cost-effective per-machine subscription. A single per-machine license can cover either a physical machine, VMware VM, Hyper-V VM, Nutanix AHV VM, or AWS EC2 instance. This gives customers the opportunity to remove vendor locks and move their workloads freely between platforms without having to change their data protection licensing.


NAKIVO Backup & Replication v9 introduces some impressive new features adding to the existing feature rich stack. V9 could be a game changer in the market as Nakivo cater for a wide range of platforms including Nutanix AHV and AWS EC2. The Physical backup feature offers a much needed consolidation of backup products and improves the customers decision process as they only need to buy one product for Physical, Virtual and Cloud (AWS EC2).
