NAKIVO Backup & Replication v7 is actually in public beta and it’s interesting way to see or test the new functions of this release. Also all beta program participants completing the program requirements will receive an Amazon gift card.

Actually most of the news seems related to Windows Server 2016 (and of course the related Hyper-V), but I suppose that there will be something also for VMware vSphere in the GA (at least I guess the support for the 6.5 version).

NAKIVO Backup & Replication v7 adds support for Microsoft Hyper-V 2016 and 2012! Out of the box, v7 provides image-based, application-aware, and forever-incremental Hyper-V backup. This means that Hyper-V backups will capture all your data, ensure the consistency of applications and databases, and will transfer only changes to the backup repository after the initial full backup.

NAKIVO Backup & Replication v7 can create and maintain identical copies of Hyper-V VMs on a target server. The copies (called VM replicas) remain in the powered off state and do not consume any resources, yet you can power them on at any moment for near-instant disaster recovery. Just as Hyper-V backups, the replicas are image-based, application-aware, and forever-incremental.
