NAKIVO Enables Cloud Provider to Reduce VM Backup-as-a-Service Costs by 40%

Leading Cloud Services Provider in Europe has selected NAKIVO software to protect mission-critical client VMs.

Campbell, CA, United States — August 7, 2013

NAKIVO Inc., #1 virtualization data protection software provider, announced today that RvO - the leading Cloud Services Provider in Europe - has selected NAKIVO Backup & Replication to protect mission-critical client VMs.

RvO delivers cloud services to hundreds of customers across Europe. Intense customer support has made RvO a leader in cloud computing. Delivering enterprise-class cloud services, RvO supports businesses of all sizes and types. RvO provides dedicated cloud, hybrid cloud, as well as backup and disaster recovery services to deliver the ideal set of cloud services for each customer’s specific needs. The RvO backup and disaster recovery services are now powered by NAKIVO.

RvO previously adopted a first generation VM backup tool, which could not deliver the reliability and simplicity that the business required. "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 solution on the market, and selected NAKIVO Backup & Replication due to its low maintenance, high reliability, performance and superior customer usability."

RvO is a rapidly growing business, and while several hundred VMs are protected by NAKIVO today, RvO expects to protect thousands of VMs across more geographically distributed sites in the near future. Multiple customer environments are hosted within the RvO hosting center, however RvO often faced VM backup performance challenges with sites located outside of the hosting facility in places with slow WAN links. As a result, RvO required high performance network acceleration and a network distributed architecture for scalability built into their next VM backup solution.

Primoz's team was in search of a new solution, and tested many products that offered an intuitive, scalable, powerful and reliable data protection solution. "After testing several VM data protection products side by side, we realized that NAKIVO Backup & Replication, along with their highly responsive support team, was the best VM backup solution for our Backup as a Service offering," said Primoz.

Since implementing NAKIVO Backup & Replication, RvO has dramatically improved VM backup performance, efficiency and customer satisfaction while reducing system maintenance time and labor dramatically.

"With NAKIVO Backup & Replication, our customers can almost learn the user interface themselves; reducing our training time from hours to minutes. An initial backup job on 30GB VM can be complete in just five minutes by us and/or the customer. It just works and it works fast!" said Primoz.
