nakivo logoIf you are a VCP, vExpert, VCI or even a VMUG member you have no excuse to not try out Nakivo.  In a press release yesterday Nakivo announced that they are now handing out free 2 socket NFR lisenses of the latest version (2) of their flagship product Backup and Replication.

In addition to their day-to-day duties, VMware professionals run their home and work labs to try and learn new software, verify new concepts and ideas, and run pre-production tests. “We are pleased to provide VMware professionals with a fully-functional, yet a free data protection solution for their home and work labs allowing them to drive innovations in business and technology, enhance their IT infrastructure, and improve professional skills,” said Bruce Talley, CEO at NAKIVO.

IMO this is a good move by all companies.  vExperts, VCPs, and VCI’s are on the verge of the latest technologies and often throw these products into their homelabs to evaluate and try out, which normally results in some free marketing and exposure to the companies as blog posts and tweets go flying out about the products.

So, if you qualify and are looking for your lisenses, head on over here and sign up to grab yourself a couple of sockets worth.  I know I will!!!
