New Features

Deduplication Appliances Support

NAKIVO Backup & Replication provides support for enterprise-grade deduplication appliances such as EMC Data Domain, HP StoreOnce, NEC Hydrastor, Quantum DXi, and other similar appliances, which can be used as a backup target. NAKIVO Backup & Replication provides a special backup repository type with the special architecture optimized for working with deduplication devices. Thus, before backing up VM data to a deduplication appliance, you can choose to use this repository type, and your data will be backed up to the storage server at a great performance level.

Native Package for Western Digital NAS

The native package for supported Western Digital NAS servers is now available and enables deploying NAKIVO Backup & Replication directly on the NAS. Support for the following new WD MyCloud NAS models has been added:

  • My Cloud PR2100
  • My Cloud PR4100

Support for new Synology NAS Servers

The new version provides support for the Synology NAS models featuring Appollolake and Broadwellnk CPU architecture.
