Nakivo release 8.1

We cannot conclude the year with the last release from Nakivo’s house. As described in beta, version 8.1 comes with Policy-Based Data Protection which introduces an interesting automation layer for VM protection.

In fact, this feature increases the flexibility in complex virtual infrastructure, solving with a simple identification element like tag, VM name, size or location, the backup policy assignment. The results: simply moving VM into another position, or changing tag name, is possible to modify the backup-policy without manual intervention. In this way, critical applications are always protected and backups are stored in the right place with the right RPO and Retention.

Check here for furthers.

Another interesting coming from this version is the Universal Object Recovery, which simply recovers data without restoring the whole virtual machine. For example, if you must restore a dataset coming from a database, this feature mount the restored disk into the running VM. In this way using database native tools is possible to restore the dataset without interrupt the database service.
