NAKIVO Inc., the fastest-growing virtualization and cloud backup software company for VMware environments, has released NAKIVO Backup & Replication v5.5 today. The new version provides the ability to instantly recover Microsoft Active Directory objects and containers (such as entire domains or user groups) directly from compressed and deduplicated VMware VM backups, without recovering an entire VM first. More details and free trial download are available at

The object recovery process is simple and straightforward: after specifying a VM backup and a recovery point, NAKIVO Backup & Replication automatically locates the Active Directory database in the VM backup and - within a few seconds - displays the contents of the database right in the product’s Web UI. From this point, the product provides the ability to browse and search the database, view object attributes, and recover Active Directory objects and containers.

"We are excited to release the new v5.5, which further improves object recovery capabilities of NAKIVO Backup & Replication,” said Bruce Talley, CEO and co-founder of NAKIVO. “The instant object recovery for Microsoft Active Directory feature enables VMware administrators to recover data faster while also reducing downtime.”

Named one of the top 10 coolest storage startups of 2014 by CRN, NAKIVO is delivering a new way to protect VMware environments more reliably, efficiently, and cost effectively. NAKIVO Backup & Replication is VMware-certified, purely agentless, and can be deployed on both Linux and Windows. Featuring a simple and intuitive Web UI, the product can back up and replicate VMware VMs onsite, offsite, and to private/public clouds. NAKIVO Backup & Replication supports live applications and databases, instantly recovers VMs, files, and application objects directly from compressed and de-duplicated VM backups, speeds up data transfer with network acceleration, and reduces data size with global deduplication and compression.
