[Review]: NAKIVO Backup & Replication v7.2
What’s new in NAKIVO Backup & Replication v7.2
Nakivo has released new version of Backup & Replication suite with new features, improvements and fixed issues. Please join me to review the new features, improvements and fixes in this post.
New features are as follows:
- Microsoft SQL Object Recovery
- Microsoft SQL Log Truncation
- Calendar Jobs View
- ASUSTOR NAS support
- Multiple schedules per job
- Transporter-only packages for Synology, QNAP, and ASUSTOR NAS.
Microsoft SQL Object Recovery
Microsoft SQL Server is one of the most popular databases and is often used to store business-critical data. These data may undergo undesirable changes for multiple reasons, be it due to accidental deletion, database corruption, repercussions of ransomware or other types of malware. The Instant Object Recovery for Microsoft feature allows you to easily recover individual SQL server objects, such as databases and tables, back to the source SQL Server (or a different server) directly from the deduplicated and compressed VM backups.
Microsoft SQL Log Truncation
Any Microsoft SQL Server tracks all database transactions (modifications) and records them as transaction log files, which are essential when it comes to data recovery. However, these log files grow over time and may eventually fill all of the available storage space causing the SQL Server crash, or loss of valuable data. The Microsoft SQL Log Truncation feature can automatically remove (aka truncate) transaction log files after a successful VM backup or replica is made. This prevents log files from growing while you have a copy of log files in the backup or replica, should you need to restore your database data.
Calendar Jobs View
NAKIVO Backup & Replication v7.2 adds yet another great feature – Calendar Dashboard. Now you can view all your jobs on a calendar (just like your meetings or tasks in a calendar application) and quickly find free slots in a backup window. This feature also enables you to schedule new jobs right from the calendar, provides a birds-eye view of all your jobs, and shows the duration of each of them. To make this feature even more useful, calendars are integrated right into the job wizard, so you can schedule a job right in the job wizard.
ASUSTOR NAS support
Install NAKIVO Backup & Replication on your ASUSTOR NAS, and turn the NAS into a high-performance and reliable VM backup appliance! This can let you keep your backup software, hardware, storage, and data deduplication within the same device and increase VM backup and replication speed by up to 2X vs. a VM-based backup solution. Just install NAKIVO Backup & Replication on an ASUSTOR NAS, like you can already do with QNAP, Synology, and Western Digital NAS.
Multiple schedules per job
For your greater convenience, NAKIVO Backup & Replication v7.2 further enhances job scheduling, allowing you to add multiple schedules to a single job. This can enable you, to run your jobs at night during the week and during the on weekends.
