NAKIVO Enables Fifth Factor Technologies to Deliver Cloud-Based Disaster-Recovery-as-a-Service

Leveraging NAKIVO Backup & Replication, Fifth Factor Technologies enables business continuity for virtualized SMBs.

Campbell, CA, United States — October 14, 2013

NAKIVO Inc., #1 VM data protection software provider, today announced that Fifth Factor Technologies, a cloud and managed services provider in South Africa, recently introduced Cloud-based Disaster Recovery for VMware environments with NAKIVO Backup & Replication that provides VMware backup, replication and recovery capabilities, delivered via the cloud to the SMB site.

A key challenge facing SMBs is to ensure that the business can continue to operate even after a natural disaster or infrastructure failure. On site only backup and replication solutions can be CAPEX intensive and lack the ability to recover from natural disasters or infrastructure failures. Cloud-based Disaster Recovery for VMware from Fifth Factor Technologies enables SMBs to quickly recover from both natural disasters and infrastructure failures.

To enable SMBs to overcome these threats of business downtime, Fifth Factor Technologies has developed its cloud-based Disaster Recovery offering as a hybrid cloud service that supplies the required VM backup and replication software, including operating system and offsite disk-based storage, as well as a recovery process while utilizing available on-site storage for fast recovery from VM replicas or backups in the case of single system failures.

"With our cloud-based Disaster Recovery offering we can provide customers with easily accessible VM data through point in time VM replicas and backups", said Andrew Matheson, President, Fifth Factor Technologies. "Our hybrid cloud service provides the high speed recovery of VMs both onsite and offsite in the case of a complete disaster."

Fifth Factor Technologies offers a hybrid solution by managing an on-site virtual appliance for the customer to store backups and replicas on-site as well as offsite to the Fifth Factor Technologies cloud. The on-site backups and replicas provide a means for near instant recovery, while the Fifth Factor Technologies cloud provides a reliable offsite storage location of VM backups and replicas for rapid recovery in case of a natural disaster or infrastructure failure.

"We are pleased that NAKIVO was selected by Fifth Factor Technologies to be at the core of their Cloud-based Disaster Recovery offering", said Bruce Talley, CEO and Co-Founder of NAKIVO. "NAKVIO Backup & Replication provides an extensive set of powerful features for VMware backup and replication to protect virtualized IT environments."
