Sensanet operates out of 3 datacenters, with all services running on over 100 VMware vSphere virtual machines.
With this range of essential services delivered to organizations, ensuring security and access to data is essential. After a disaster, fast recovery is essential for Sensanet to remain operational and avoid data loss. Without backups of applications and databases, the company cannot guarantee the continuity of operations provided to their customers. As soon as Sensanet virtualized their IT infrastructure, the company NAKIVO Backup & Replication as their VM data protection solution.
“We chose NAKIVO due to the product’s pricing and the wide range of functionalities. NAKIVO Backup & Replication provides the best value, in terms of cost-benefit,” says Gabriel Palafox, General Director at Sensanet. “Data is one of the most important assets at our company, and it is mandatory to keep this data safe and sound, and NAKIVO Backup & Replication helps us achieve just that.”
“The installation process was simple, easy to implement, and with a practical configuration that had all the options required to start our first backup job,” says Gabriel. “Currently, NAKIVO Backup & Replication is installed on a virtual machine, with local hard drive space, where our virtual machines are backed up. One of the most useful functionalities we like the most is that NAKIVO Backup & Replication provides immutable backups. For us, it is crucial to give our customers the peace of mind that their information is protected and cannot be targeted by malicious ransomware,” adds Gabriel.
The solution offers immutable backups that help protect backup data against ransomware infections. These immutable backups cannot be deleted, edited, or encrypted by ransomware.
“All of our backups complete in different amounts of time, and these times are based on the amount of stored data on any given virtual machine. Backup copies are made daily,” says Gabriel. “What we enjoy the most is that backups can be automated and that we can have daily, weekly, and monthly backups, if required. Backup copies are useful in case of data corruption, software failure, and malicious software attacks.”
“With screenshot verification, we can verify that our backups were in fact successful and are recoverable. Instant VM recovery helps us with recovery of a complete virtual machine in minutes. Lastly, network acceleration is useful when backing up VMs via the internet, when the VMs are outside the network,” says Gabriel. “Overall, NAKIVO Backup & Replication has an impressive set of functionalities that help improve performance, increase recovery time, and save bandwidth.”
“NAKIVO Backup & Replication is our first VM backup solution, and we believe we made the right decision. NAKIVO Backup & Replication is a stable VM backup solution, which provides immutable backups that protect you against ransomware and lets you recover entire virtual machines in a matter of minutes. NAKIVO Backup & Replication also offers technical support that is provided in a timely manner and has all the necessary information to solve any problem or issue,” says Gabriel.
