NAKIVO Backup & Replication v5.7 featuring full support for VMware vSphere v6 is now available free of charge to VMware Professionals

CAMPBELL, CA — July 15, 2015 — / — NAKIVO Inc., the fastest-growing provider of virtualization data protection software for VMware environments, has announced today that it offers free Not for Resale (NFR) licenses to VMware professionals: current VMUG members, VMware vExperts, VCIs, VCPs, VTSPs, and VSPs can receive a free NFR license for NAKIVO Backup & Replication v5.7. The NFR license keys are available for non-production use only, including educational, lab testing, evaluation, training, and demonstration purposes. NFR licenses are available at

The new version provides the full support for the recently released VMware vSphere 6, including support for Virtual Volumes (VVols), VMware Virtual SAN (VSAN) 2.0, as well as support for other new features introduced in vSphere 6.

NAKIVO Backup & Replication v5.7 also adds the Backup Repository Encryption feature. Now customers can choose to encrypt the entire backup repository to ensure backup data security. If the feature is enabled, the product will encrypt the repository destination (using ecryptfs for folders and cryptsetup (crypt-md) in LUKS mode for devices/partitions) prior to creating the backup repository. If the encrypted backup repository is imported in another instance of the product, the encryption password will be required to import the repository.

“We are excited provide VMware professionals with a new powerful solution for their test labs,” said Bruce Talley, CEO and Founder of NAKIVO. “NAKIVO Backup & Replication v5.7 now supports the latest release of VMware vSphere and provides a simple yet powerful data security mechanism with backup repository encryption.”
