The reason is that this version will help lot of IT Pro that use QNAP NAS and until don't has this opportunity..
Here you can find the news of the Nakivo but if you want to find more details you can visit www.nakivo.com
NAKIVO VM backup appliances based on QNAP NAS combine backup hardware, backup software, backup storage, and data deduplication in a single device. This setup frees up virtual infrastructure resources previously used for backup and results in a smaller footprint and less maintenance. Compared to purpose-build backup appliances, the combination of NAKIVO Backup & Replication and QNAP NAS is up to 5X more affordable, while delivering the same or higher levels of performance and reliability.
NAKIVO VM backup appliances based on QNAP NAS also deliver higher VM backup speed when compared to VM-based backup solutions. This is because backup data is written directly to the NAS disks, bypassing network protocols such as NFS and CIFS. NAKIVO VM backup appliance based on QNAP NAS can boost VM backup performance by up to 2X.
NAKIVO VM backup appliances based on QNAP NAS separate virtual infrastructure and backup software, which improves reliability and ensures that recovery can be performed even if a portion of a virtual infrastructure is unavailable.
NAKIVO VM backup appliances based on QNAP NAS can be deployed onsite or offsite - even in locations with no virtual infrastructure - and can be used to store primary and secondary VM backups. NAKIVO VM backup appliances based on QNAP NAS provides all components that are required for operational and disaster recovery: hardware to run restores, backup data, and backup software.
After read the news let me ask a question?
Should use NAS as Appliance for your Backup Software instead of Windows or Linux Server?
Why not ?
You will reduce Guest OS , Maintainance , Licenses , Backups will faster and will not depend from Virtual Infrustruture.
