Nakivo Backup and Replication and Linux Red Hat EL: another good way to backup (part one: installation).

Hello all,
I've had a chance to evaluate a free trial of Nakivo Backup and Replication, so I have decided to post on my blog some videos that show the installation, configuration and backup of virtual machines in a vSphere datacenter using Nakivo Backup and Replication installed on Red Hat Enterprise Linux.
I will try to do also some additional blog posts in the future about replication.

Some caveats:
  • My lab is a home lab, running on a very good PC and vSphere using Iomega IX2-200 NFS shares as shared storage: so do not expect big performance in these posts: just imagine what could be in real environment.
  • My Nakivo Backup and Replication instance with a local transporter is installed in a Red Hat EL 6.4 64 bit Virtual machine running on Fusion on a Mac Book Pro, connected to the virtual environment via wi-fi: so do not expect big network performance.
  • With this points in mind enjoy the easiness of Nakivo installation and configuration and, I repeated myself, imagine what could be the performance in a real environment

Let's start with installation:
You can choose among installing on Windows, Linux, Linux Transporter-only installation, Virtual Appliance Full Solution, Virtual Appliance Transporter-only.
I've selected to install the Full Linux solution for installation. It is just an install shell script to be executed on your Linux Server.
Here's the video that's more than lot of words.




next post configuration of Nakivo B&R

cheers
