NAKIVO enables manufacturing company to recover core services at the flick of a switch and get back online after a complete disaster in 4 hours.

Campbell, CA, United States — January 28, 2013

NAKIVO Inc., the leader in affordable VM backup solutions, announced today that Acorn Fasteners Ltd. – an industry-leading manufacturing company in United Kingdom - has chosen NAKIVO Backup & Replication as a solution for data protection. NAKIVO Backup & Replication has helped make the procedure of disaster recovery from a complete crash extremely fast and easy.

Acorn Fasteners Ltd. has become synonymous with many of the industry leaders for supplying them with competitively priced, quality products on time, and with an almost 0% product failure rate. The company is now in a position to expand its activities further in both the domestic and international markets.

"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."

After an investigation, Jim decided to try NAKIVO Backup & Replication for VM replication to their remote datacenter. With forever-incremental replication, and compression that reduces bandwidth and storage space requirements, NAKIVO Backup & Replication exceeded Jim’s expectations.

NAKIVO Backup & Replication has helped Acorn Fasteners reduce predicted downtime from 1 week to just 4 hours in the event of a complete disaster. "Even in case our infrastructure is completely destroyed by a fire, flood, or anything else, we know that our core services can be back in operation at the flick of a switch," said Jim Rankin. "Replication went very smooth and extremely fast," he emphasized. "What’s more, NAKIVO Backup & Replication does not require its own servers, has low overhead, and is so easy to use that I didn’t have to spend time reading manuals."
