NAKIVO Offers a Holiday Promotion to VMware Essentials Shops

New customers can get a special holiday discount on the Essentials edition of NAKIVO Backup & Replication for VMware Essentials before the end of the year.

Campbell, CA, United States — December 18, 2013

NAKIVO Inc., #1 virtualization data protection software provider, announced today that it has started a holiday special promotion for the Essentials edition of NAKIVO Backup & Replication for VMware Essentials.

VMware has introduced the vSphere Essentials kits to help SMBs virtualize their physical servers with a low upfront investment. These kits enable SMBs to easily adopt virtualization, centrally manage workloads, reduce hardware costs, and increase operating efficiency. So it’s not surprising that thousands of businesses have installed the VMware Essentials kits in their environments. But the first question that comes up right after deploying a virtual infrastructure is how to back it up. That’s because virtualized environments running VMware vSphere Essentials and Essentials Plus need the same level of data protection as large enterprises.

Aiming to assist SMBs in protecting their environments easily, reliably, and cost-effectively, NAKIVO has offered the Essentials edition of NAKIVO Backup & Replication since v1.0. The NAKIVO Essentials edition has exactly the same and full feature set as the NAKIVO Pro edition, but comes at half the price, making it easy for SMBs to back up, replicate, and recover their ESXi VMs.

With the end of year holidays approaching, NAKIVO introduces a holiday-special promotion for the Essentials Edition, making it even more affordable. When placing an order for NAKIVO Backup & Replication Essentials edition until December 30 2013, customers can count how many days are left till the end of the year and request the same number as the discount percentage on their order.

"We are even more excited about offering this holiday promotion to help them save more while also enabling them to better protect their VMware Essentials environments."
