Describe the company – the elevator pitch

NAKIVO has been ensuring the protection and 24/7 availability of critical business data for our customers with virtualized, cloud-based, as well as hybrid environments for over 5 years now. With 85% revenue growth in 2017, our company is providing over 10,000 companies worldwide with fast, reliable, and cost-effective solution for VM backup, replication, as well as recovery.  With the upcoming release of NAKIVO Backup & Replication v7.4, we plan on providing even more options to our customers for optimizing their backup operations.

How are we different?

If we were to summarize the solution we are offering in a few words, we would say “the best data protection value for the money”. NAKIVO has always taken pride in providing our customers with a product that is not only powerful, but also affordable. With a price tag that is considerably lower than that of most of our competitors, NAKIVO Backup & Replication provides a full package of AWS, VMware, Hyper-V backup, replication, and recovery options that are as easy to use as they are scalable.

Our solution can be installed on Windows and Linux, or deployed as a pre-configured VMware Virtual Appliance or Amazon Machine Image. What’s more, you can create a reliable and high-performance VM backup appliance by installing NAKIVO Backup & Replication on a NAS device (the product is currently installable on QNAP, Western Digital, Synology, as well as ASUSTOR NAS storage devices).

How are you different?

NAKIVO Backup & Replication works quickly and automatically right out of the box. The recent beta survey that we conducted showed that over 97% of NAKIVO customers believe that the product is extremely easy to use. Boasting an intuitive UI, our solution requires minimal supervision and can recover your virtual machines within minutes allowing you to meet much shorter RTO.

Where are you based?

NAKIVO’s headquarters are located in Sparks, Nevada, USA. We also have multiple offices located throughout the world.

When was the company launched?

The company was founded in 2012 providing a VMware backup and replication solution. We have come a long way since then, growing into an international company with over 2,400 partners worldwide.

What have been your biggest wins to date?

One of our most recent success stories is Cloud Direct, a cloud service provider located in the United Kingdom. They wanted to protect the entire infrastructure of their customers including email, files, databases, and authentication services. Having implemented NAKIVO Backup & Replication, they are now able to provide their customers with a comprehensive VM disaster recovery as a service (DRaaS) solution. Moreover, they managed to reduce their administration overhead and backup job times by 90%.

Another great example would be the Center for Scientific Computation and Mathematical Modelling (CSCAMM) at the University of Maryland. VM backup is crucial for their successful daily operations as faculty, staff, and students require 24/7 access to research materials through their website. By choosing NAKIVO Backup & Replication, they have reduced the time required for completing the entire backup process to under 1 hour. The product’s instant file recovery feature has also saved them from potentially disastrous situations on multiple occasions.

NAKIVO is also proud to have China Airlines, one of the leading airline carriers in Asia, as our customer. They have 60 VMware ESXi hosts and over 900 VMs. As such, keeping their data safe is paramount to ensuring the continuity of their business-critical operations. After choosing our solution, they have significantly increased their VM backup and recovery speeds, cutting their VMware backup budget by about 30%. With our global data deduplication feature, they also managed to use 60% less storage space.

Who are you trying to attract with your product?

Both small businesses and large enterprises, our goal is introducing our product to anyone seeking the top efficiency of the data protection processes. Many of our current customers switched from our competitors’ solutions to NAKIVO Backup & Replication after downloading and testing our free trial.

The team of NAKIVO is what makes us who we are. Developers, QA engineers, product managers, and customer support – all of us are passionate about what we do as well as how our work can help those seeking to optimize their VM backup operations.
