New Features in v3.5

  • Staged Replication: To speed up the initial VM replication and save network bandwidth, NAKIVO Backup & Replication can perform staged replication: back up or replicate to a removable media (such as an external USB drive) and then create a new replication job that will use the transferred VMs as a target and perform only incremental replication.
  • Reuse of Backups and Replicas: If a backup or replication job is lost (due to accidental job deletion or because jobs should be recreated in a new copy of the product) NAKIVO Backup & Replication enables to map source VMs to existing backups and replicas to avoid transferring full VM data over the network again.
  • Static Ports Range for Data Transfer: NAKIVO Backup & Replication now enables to specify a static port range used by a Transporter to transfer data over the network.
