Success Stories

“NAKIVO Backup & Replication helped us achieve simplicity and peace of mind, two important factors when selecting a data protection solution. By switching to NAKIVO Backup & Replication, we saved $10,000. NAKIVO Backup & Replication is simple yet robust and always delivers reliable backups for us. While the other backup software on the market might have bigger brand names, but in terms of simplicity, NAKIVO Backup & Replication is the way to go,” says Nelson Lima, IT Director at Nutrition Smart.


“Our previous solution was a mess as we ran into failures, lost backups, and we just wasted too much manual time. NAKIVO Backup & Replication is a reliable backup solution that helped us save costs and time, and prevented failures from happening. We invested 2 hours every day into our previous solution. Now, everything is automated, so we spend just 10 minutes a day,” says Lars Weimar, Head of IT at HAM Precision.


“For us, VM replication is one of the nicest additions. We run two VM hosts and instead of crowding all the servers on one VM and running regular replication, we split the hosts and make better use of the resources with cross server VM replication. Overall, NAKIVO Backup & Replication will save us over $1,000 per year and if we have an outage that impacts our hosts, the software will save us several hours of recovery time as well,” says Tate Goodman, IT Manager at TCIX Rail.


“From a daily operation perspective, we are happy, as NAKIVO Backup & Replication does not take an enormous amount of time to operate and almost everything is automated anyways. What was proven via testing is that our potential savings are way higher with NAKIVO Backup & Replication. We estimate that we will be able to recover from a complete disaster in about 50% to 75% of the time it would have taken us with our previous product,” says Ted Kull, Director of Information Systems at SIAM.


“I definitely enjoyed being a user of NAKIVO Backup & Replication, as we have been their customer for more than two years. NAKIVO Backup & Replication helped us save 60% of our time on backup administration. The cost of NAKIVO Backup & Replication has equaled out the savings on time, however, the product is still affordable and effective,” says Jeremy Mayfield, Director of IT at Suwannee American Cement.


“After switching to NAKIVO Backup & Replication, we are finally able to back up our VMs reliably with improved backup speed. We no longer need to change tapes; thus, we’ve freed up at least an hour every day with NAKIVO Backup & Replication,” says Pieter Simhoffer, Technical Administrator at KPN Managed Networking department.


“The licensing costs that were offered by NAKIVO turned out to be cheaper than the yearly maintenance costs of our previous product. NAKIVO Backup & Replication may be almost 10 times cheaper. Regarding installation and setup time, we just spent 15 minutes and everything was working. With the previous product, installation could be over 2 hours, plus the software was more difficult to use. Overall, we were able to simplify disaster recovery, save costs, and utilize existing NAS servers with NAKIVO Backup & Replication,” says Alejandro IT Project Coordinator at Save the Children Spain.


“NAKIVO Backup & Replication saved us so much storage space so that we are able to utilize that space for other things. Our previous backup product was difficult to manage and was not centralized. While NAKIVO Backup & Replication was able to deliver simplicity, and centralize all our branch offices in one management interface. Finally, with NAKIVO Backup & Replication we saved approximately 4 hours a week on backup management,” says Dirk Bierwirt, IT Administrator at Lebenshilfe Wetzlar-Weilburg eV.


“With the previous solution, we would have to pay for additional storage space for our backups. We were also not able to connect an additional backup repository for our backups. The decision to pick NAKIVO Backup & Replication was greatly influenced by the ability to optimize storage space without incurring additional costs and we are happy with that decision,” says Waldemar Chrobok, IT Systems Administrator at FAMUR.


“FOSIS believes it was a success to acquire NAKIVO Backup & Replication. Hyper-V support is much more efficient and effective, management is hand-on and simple, while monetary savings are very welcomed,” says Diego Rosales, Head of Support and Operations at Aldaris (NAKIVO’s solution partner).
