"European-based cloud service providers helped to accelerate our growth in Q3, building upon the strong success of our distributors and resellers across Europe," said Bruce Talley, CEO and co-founder of NAKIVO. "We are pleased with the strong demand for NAKIVO by European Cloud Service Providers and SMB customers who have recognized the tremendous value and benefits delivered by NAKIVO Backup & Replication in their VMware vSphere environments."

"In the past, we worked with another VM backup solution, but it required us to spend about 30 hours per month to manage and maintain the system, and did not support vCloud Director," said Primoz Lah, CTO at RvO. "We evaluated the other leading third party VMware backup solutions on the market, and selected NAKIVO Backup & Replication due to its low maintenance, high reliability, performance and superior customer usability."

"Our previous VMware backup and replication product was inefficient and consumed both our time and our customers' time," said Tom Arentsen, a VMware Certified Design Expert and the IT Director at Host Ventura. "In our evaluation, NAKIVO Backup & Replication came out on top with the highest VM backup performance and job completion reliability, while providing a much more intuitive user interface, and all this at a lower overall price point."
