Small business faces a new era in which VMware backup and replication is central to success, today and in the future.

NAKIVO is at the forefront of enabling and protecting virtualized IT with exceptionally fast, unprecedentedly easy to use, and extremely reliable data protection technology." Bruce Talley, President and CEO, NAKIVO.


"The remote cloud storage for backups market is rapidly emerging as an alternative to offsite tape rotations and archival solutions. Nakivo has recognized this important trend and is addressing the demand for easy-to-access offsite storage for backups with NAKIVO Backup & Replication and integration with the Amazon Cloud." Dave Simpson, Senior Analyst, Storage, 451 Research.


"I purchased NAKIVO Backup & Replication to protect our internal VMware environment. However, I was surprised by how great the solution fits into our overall service provider strategy. The combination of price and quality makes NAKIVO Backup & Replication the only choice for our business." Johan DuPre, President, Sector 5 Holding Group, South Africa.

"As a service provider to small businesses, we purchased NAKIVO Backup & Replication to take advantage of its backup features and low cost of ownership. With NAKVIO Backup & Replication, we specifically liked the deduplication feature, as well as backup to cloud, and intuitive web based interface. We appreciate NAKIVO's low cost of ownership, with support for free Linux, an embedded production database, and low pricing that leads the industry." Dave Evans, Independent IT Consultant, Des Moines, USA.

"MVBA Law is well respected law firm serving the greater Austin area. Our previous VM backup and replication product was Windows based, slow, and difficult to use. We needed a faster, more accessible solution. During the NAKIVO Backup & Replication testing, the first VM replication went so fast I did not think anything actually happened. However, I was able to power the machine on at the colocation recovery site. I really like this product. It is very easy to use and I can even manage jobs from home." Mark D. Hahn, Technology Architect at MVBA Law, Austin, USA.

"KEM Technology Group is a specialized IT provider for small to medium-sized businesses in Nebraska. We strive to take the complexity out of information technology for each and every one of our clients. Many of our small business customers are too small to have an IT person on staff. NAKIVO Backup & Replication enables our small business customers to protect their virtualized environment themselves, without training or becoming IT professionals." Kevin McCall, President at KEM Technology Group, Inc., Nebraska, USA.
