VM Backup to Dropbox Cloud Storage by NAKIVO Backup & Replication

NAKIVO enables small business reach one of the most affordable public clouds for secure offsite storage of their VM backups

NAKIVO, Inc., a provider of affordable VM backup solutions, has announced the general availability of NAKIVO Backup & Replication v1.0 and support for Dropbox, an easy to use, cost effective offsite cloud storage for VM backups.

  • NAKIVO Backup & Replication is the first to support VM backup directly to Dropbox which enables one of the most affordable VM cloud backup solutions in the market: 0.5TB of cloud storage is under $50 per month.
  • In addition to backing up locally, remotely, and to Dropbox, NAKIVO Backup & Replication is the first to provide VM backup directly to Amazon EC2. With industry-leading pricing, high upload speeds, encryption, and configurable access rules, Amazon EC2 is the optimal offsite backup destination for businesses of any size.
  • NAKIVO Backup & Replication is roughly ½ the price of the competition. Starting out with just $199 per socket for the Essentials edition and $399 for the Pro edition (both including 1 year of free support and upgrades to major versions), NAKIVO Backup & Replication is the most affordable VM data protection solution on the market.
  • NAKIVO Backup & Replication installs in literally 60 seconds and is so simple to use that a new user can become an expert with the product in just a few minutes. The next-gen, Web 2.0 UI enables managing all aspects of data protection at any time and from anywhere, even from a tablet. NAKIVO Backup & Replication monitors protected infrastructure and VMs 24/7, notifies users of problems and changes, automatically protects new VMs, provides configurable VM prioritization and job grouping for easier management.
  • Nakivo Backup & Replication stays current with latest vSphere technology including the vSphere 5.1 release and can be installed on recently released Windows 8 and Windows 2012 server. Being VM OS and storage agnostic, the product can back up any VMs to any storage.
  • With changed block tracking making sure only changed data is transferred, compression that reduces the data size, direct SAN support for ultra-fast transfer speeds, and multi-threaded VM processing NAKIVO Backup & Replication is up to 40% faster than the competition.
  • NAKIVO Backup & Replication supports live Exchange, Active Directory, MS SQL, Oracle, and other applications. Should any infrastructure error occur, failed operations are automatically retried multiple times and notifications are sent to the administrator. Data in the repository is stored in full synthetic mode, enabling to restore a VM from any recovery point even if other increments are lost or damaged.
  • With NAKIVO Backup & Replication data travels over an SSL-encrypted tunnel secured by AES-256 encryption (approved by NIST, NSA, and FIPS), the very same type of security used by banks and military to transfer confidential data.
  • NAKIVO Backup & Replication automatically de-duplicates backed up data at the block level, which dramatically reduces space utilization. On top of that, the de-duplicated blocks are compressed to ensure that the least amount of space is used. This combination results in up to 30x reduction of space required to keep backups.
  • Though designed for small business, NAKIVO Backup & Replication can scale out easily and support environments with 10,000+ VMs. The product has been tested to protect 1,000+ VMs and back up/replicate between continents across half the planet.
  • Out of the box, NAKIVO Backup & Replication comes in English, French, and Spanish languages.

If you’re responsible for an application that depends on the data or functionality of various IoT endpoints – either sensors or devices – your brand reputation depends on the security, reliability, and compliance of its many integrated parts. If your application fails to deliver the expected business results, your customers and partners won't care if that failure stems from the code you developed or from a component that you integrated. What can you do to ensure that the endpoints work as expect...

Enterprise IT has been in the era of Hybrid Cloud for some time now. But it seems most conversations about Hybrid are focused on integrating AWS, Microsoft Azure, or Google ECM into existing on-premises systems. Where is all the Private Cloud?

How should enterprise IT executives and buyers define their focus, needs, and roadmap, and communicate that clearly to the providers?
Complete Internet of Things (IoT) embedded device security is not just about the device but involves the entire product’s identity, data and control integrity, and services traversing the cloud. A device can no longer be looked at as an island; it is a part of a system. In fact, given the cross-domain interactions enabled by IoT it could be a part of many systems. Also, depending on where the device is deployed, for example, in the office building versus a factory floor or oil field, security ha...

Fifty billion connected devices and still no winning protocols standards.
