VMworld 2018 US: NAKIVO Wins the Gold Award!
VMworld US in Las Vegas has come to a close, and it was a very productive event for our team, featuring a huge win: NAKIVO received a “Best of VMworld 2018” Gold Award for the Data Protection category. During the event, our team announced the release of NAKIVO Backup & Replication v8.0 with Site Recovery, interacted with hundreds of attendees, and made new connections in the virtualization sphere.
“Best of VMworld” Awards are given out annually at VMworld US by TechTarget’s SearchServerVirtualization. NAKIVO was among 80+ nominees competing for awards across 7 categories representing different areas of the virtualization industry. A panel of experts and editors assessed the products on five factors: their innovation, value, performance, reliability, and ease of use.
We are thrilled to announce that NAKIVO Backup & Replication was selected as a “Best of VMworld 2018” Gold Award winner for the Data Protection category! The judges’ feedback captured the essence of the product perfectly:
“It's a feature-rich backup system for the SMB, without the enterprise cost.”
The release of a new version of NAKIVO Backup & Replication was also a success. We were excited to announce the new Site Recovery functionality in v8.0. The useful new feature drew the attention of hundreds of attendees, and our sales representatives held over 100 demos. NAKIVO is looking forward to seeing some of these new faces among our customers soon.
Watch the video below to see Anton Shelepchuk, Senior Technical Pre-Sales Manager, discussing our brand-new Site Recovery feature at an interview during the VMworld event:
These five days have been truly exhilarating for each and every member of the team. With more than 20 thousand attendees from over 100 countries, VMworld 2018 US was an incredible experience, and we were happy to be a part of the most important VMware-specific event of the year. This year’s gathering has brought together representatives of multiple industries who share a common passion for VMware and new virtualization technologies. We met many people, exchanged ideas, and made new connections. Of course, we were equally happy to see all the existing clients and valuable partners who stopped by our booth.
All in all, this was a wonderful time for us. This year’s VMworld US was the third VMworld US event attended by NAKIVO, and will certainly not be the last. Recognition from leading industry experts inspires us to work even harder and achieve ever greater heights in the data protection industry. We would like to thank everyone for the support.
We hope to see you at VMworld 2018 Europe in Barcelona this November!
