"With NAKIVO Backup & Replication, VM and file recovery is 60X faster than our previous solution, enabling us to have greater overall uptime while also replicating our VMs more frequently to meet shorter recovery point objectives." Milko Mihov, IT manager, GRW.

"We have evaluated the leading data protection offerings available on the market," said Alonso Satomayor, CEO at UPM. "From the price to value perspective, NAKIVO Backup & Replication beat every other product we have tried, and we have tried all the leaders. We found that we could save 50%, while increasing backup and replication speed by 30%, and reducing time for configuring and managing data protection by 10X."

"Speed and cost of recovery from a complete disaster was always a worry," said Jim, Rankin, Strategic Project Manager. "The business needs to be online 24/7 and can't afford downtime; the existing data protection solution was unable to fulfill these requirements. NAKIVO Backup & Replication has helped Acorn Fasteners reduce predicted downtime from 1 week to just 4 hours in the event of a complete disaster."

"NAKIVO helped us to reduce our recovery time from 12 Hours to 10 Minutes. We evaluated other leading VM backup and disaster recovery solutions but selected NAKIVO Backup & Replication for its ability to deliver a 2X to 8X greater ROI versus other available offerings. The unique combination of price, performance, and time saving functionality made NAKIVO Backup & Replication the clear winner for protecting our business critical applications and services," said Greg Buccheri, IT Manager at Bradburys Cheese.
