IT Monitoring is an essential tool for virtual environments, giving organisations complete visibility into their infrastructure health and performance. The company also continues to improve backup protection vs. ransomware threats in Backup & Replication software with the latest V.10.5 release.
IT Monitoring for vSphere
Monitoring the resource usage of VMware infrastructure is essential for identifying performance issues, avoiding bottlenecks and improving VM efficiency. Building on the company’s reliable data protection platform and years of expertise with vSphere infrastructures, the company delivers a solution – IT Monitoring for vSphere.
IT administrators can monitor the memory, CPU and disk usage of their vSphere infrastructure from the Backup & Replication unified web interface. The addition is useful both for real-time diagnostics and strategic planning. In addition to detecting ongoing issues, IT administrators can project future changes in resource consumption to avoid bottlenecks, all from the same interface they use to manage their backups.
“VM performance monitoring can be a powerful tool in terms of ensuring infrastructure efficiency and agility. Nakivo’s unique position in the backup and recovery industry also offers us insights into how monitoring can help prevent data loss in virtual environments,” says Bruce Talley, CEO.
Hardened Virtual Appliance
Businesses are under a growing threat from cybercrime, where data is not the only target anymore, but backups as well. With Backup & Replication, customers can create immutable backups in Amazon S3 buckets or a local Linux-based repository.
Version 10.5 brings ‘Hardened Virtual Appliance’ as the company continues to help customers improve resilience in the face of ransomware. This feature offers a simple way to deploy the solution and protect backup data from ransomware at the same time. By deploying the solution as a hardened virtual appliance running Ubuntu server, customers can use the local repository deployed with the VA to create immutable backups. This immutability cannot be lifted by users – not even the superuser – so the backups stay protected from modification, deletion or encryption by ransomware for the entire specified period.
These features are available in the 15-day free trial, which includes full access to IT Monitoring and all features of Backup & Replication software.
“Protecting the data that customers entrust to Nakivo Backup & Replication is paramount. We want every company to operate safely without having to look over their shoulders at every turn or worry about their data being encrypted by ransomware,” says Talley.
“We now have a solid backup solution, and we owe this success to the professional group that took care of us. In this way, we can concentrate on our customer’s security because we have already solved our data protection needs with Backup & Replication,” said Marco Mura, CIO, Mondialpol Service Group.
