[Review]: NAKIVO Backup & Replication 7.3

What’s New in NAKIVO v7.3?

NAKIVO has release latest of Backup & Replication suite with lot of new features at November 28th, 2017.

The new version get backup from your virtual machine and important data very faster.

NAKIVO v7.3, boosts VM backup speed by 53X on deduplication appliance, the new NAKIVO Backup & Replication v7.3 adds support for deduplication appliances achieving VM backup speed of 3.2 GB/s on NEC Hydrastor in a customer environment.

This latest version features a new type of backup repository with a special architecture optimized for deduplication appliances, such as NEC Hydrastor, EMC Data Domain, HP StoreOnce, and Quantum DXi.

Deduplication appliances are designed to reduce the data size and operate best with sequential large block I/O from backup software. If the architecture of a backup repository is not optimized for deduplication appliances, VM backup may appear to be random I/O, which deduplication appliances are not designed to handle. This can greatly reduce the VM backup performance.

When tested in a customer environment, the new type of repository in NAKIVO Backup & Replication v7.3 has demonstrated backup speeds that are 53 times faster than the regular backup repository. With a high-end NEC Hydrastor deduplication appliance as a target, NAKIVO Backup & Replication v7.3 backed up the customer VMs at an incredible 3.2 GB/s. The backup repository structure has also been improved for easier manageability. Now each backup with its recovery points is stored in a separate folder.

The new backup repository complements the existing one, so customers now have a choice between the following options:

The regular backup repository, which is optimized for generic storage systems and performs forever-incremental VM backups along with global data deduplication and compression.

The backup repository optimized for deduplication appliances, which accelerates VM backups to speeds up to 53 times faster on deduplication appliances.Nakivo v7.3

    Dear mr.Teimouri

    i have a question :
    can Nakivo exclude file or path for replication on linux guest OS
    for example if i want exclude path or file or folder during replication can do it on veeam with windows guest OS

    but veeam can not support esxclude file or path during replication on linux os
    now can nakvio do it ?


  2. Hi Babak,
    As I know, Nakivo can exclude Swap files and page files during backup or replication.
    but about specific file, I’m not sure.
    I’ll talk about that with Nakivo engineers and update you at this page.
