Campbell, CA, United States — February 16, 2016

NAKIVO Inc., a fast-growing virtualization and cloud backup software company for VMware and Amazon Cloud environments, today announced that it has earned recognition from CRN Magazine for being one of the 20 Coolest Cloud Storage Vendors of 2016. This award was part of the CRN’s annual Top 100 Coolest Computing Vendors list

The CRN Top 20 Coolest Cloud Storage Vendors award is presented to companies that are considered the best in the cloud marketplace by being able to create innovative products, services, and partner programs that ultimately help customers take advantage of the flexibility, scalability, and savings that cloud computing offers.

Winners are named across five major categories including infrastructure, platform and tools, storage, security, and software. The list is created by a team of CRN editors and through solution provider nominations. Ultimately, the list is an effort to help solution providers navigate though the cloud market and elevate their cloud services offerings.

NAKIVO delivers a new way to protect VMware and Amazon Cloud environments more reliably, efficiently, and cost-effectively. NAKIVO Backup & Replication is VMware-certified, purely agentless, and can be deployed on Synology NAS as well as both on Linux and Windows. Featuring a simple and intuitive Web interface, the product can back up and replicate VMware VMs onsite, offsite, and to private/public clouds. NAKIVO Backup & Replication supports live applications and databases, enables instant recovery of VMs, files, and application objects directly from compressed and deduplicated VM backups, speeds up data transfer with network acceleration, and reduces data size with global deduplication and compression.

NAKIVO Backup & Replication is recognized for its ability to integrate with Amazon Cloud with a single click and to effortlessly back up VMware VMs to a secure and reliable AWS cloud backup repository. In addition, NAKIVO Backup & Replication supports multiple isolated tenants within a single product deployment and enables managing them from a single pane of glass. This enables managed services, cloud, and hosting providers to introduce VM Backup-as-a-Service, Replication-as-a-Service, and Disaster Recovery-as-a-Service to their clients more easily and cost-effectively.

"Cloud-based solutions have become an indispensable and fast-growing part of today's IT infrastructure," said Robert Faletra, CEO, The Channel Company. "CRN's annual list of 100 Coolest Cloud Computing Vendors helps solution providers find and engage with the suppliers who can best support them, either during the critical transition to the cloud or in the improvement and expansion of their existing cloud offerings."

"We are thrilled to be chosen by CRN as one of the top 20 coolest cloud storage vendors," said Bruce Talley, CEO and co-founder at NAKIVO.
