VM Backup Appliance Based on ASUSTOR NAS

Install NAKIVO Backup & Replication on your ASUSTOR NAS, and turn the NAS into a high-performance and reliable VM backup appliance! This will let you keep your backup software, hardware, storage, and data deduplication within the same device and increase VM backup and replication speed by up to 2X vs. a VM-based backup solution. Just install NAKIVO Backup & Replication on an Asustor NAS, like you can already do with QNAP, Synology, and Western Digital NAS.

Microsoft SQL Log Truncation

Any Microsoft SQL Server tracks all database transactions (modifications) and records them as transaction log files, which are essential when it comes to data recovery. However, these log files grow over time and may eventually fill all of the available storage space causing the SQL Server crash, or loss of valuable data. The Microsoft SQL Log Truncation feature can automatically remove (aka truncate) transaction log files after a successful VM backup or replica is made. This prevents log files from growing while you have a copy of log files in the backup or replica, should you need to restore your database data.

Instant Object Recovery for Microsoft SQL

Microsoft SQL Server is one of the most popular databases and is often used to store business-critical data. These data may undergo undesirable changes for multiple reasons, be it due to accidental deletion, database corruption, repercussions of ransomware or other types of malware. The Instant Object Recovery for Microsoft feature allows you to easily recover individual SQL server objects, such as databases and tables, back to the source SQL Server (or a different server) directly from the deduplicated and compressed VM backups.

Calendar Dashboard

NAKIVO Backup & Replication v7.2 adds yet another great feature – Calendar Dashboard. Now you can view all your jobs on a calendar (just like your meetings or tasks in a calendar application) and quickly find free slots in a backup window. This feature also enables you to schedule new jobs right from the calendar, provides a birds-eye view of all your jobs, and shows the duration of each of them. To make this feature even more useful, calendars are integrated right into the job wizard, so you can schedule a job right in the job wizard.

Flexible Job Scheduler

For your greater convenience, NAKIVO Backup & Replication v7.2 further enhances job scheduling, allowing you to add multiple schedules to a single job. This will allow you, for example, to run your jobs at night time on weekdays and at day time on weekends.
