Campbell, CA, United States — January 29, 2013

NAKIVO Inc., the leader in affordable VM backup solutions, announced today that UPM - a leading IT service provider for SMBs in Santiago, Chile - has chosen NAKIVO Backup & Replication as a solution for data protection. By using NAKIVO Backup & Replication UPM has saved 50% of their data protection budget, increased backup and replication speed by 30%, and decreased time for configuring and managing data protection by 10X.

Since 1996, UPM provides infrastructure administration services as well as web, virtual server, and email hosting for SMB clients in Santiago, Chile. UPM helps over 200 customers create and maintain their IT environments letting companies concentrate on business rather than on troubleshooting IT issues. As a service provider, UPM offers exceptional personalized services including virtual infrastructure backup and replication to remote destinations.

"We have evaluated the leading data protection offerings available on the market," said Alonso Satomayor, CEO at UPM. "From the price to value perspective, NAKIVO Backup & Replication beat every other product we have tried, and we have tried all the leaders."

NAKIVO Backup & Replication has delivered on UPM requirements. The product supports backing up and replicating VMs running live applications and databases, does not require installing VAs on each protected server, can process multiple VMs at the same time due to its multi-threaded architecture, and supports the latest version of vSphere.

"What was also critical for us is the ability to replicate to the same vCenter and even the same ESXi host," said Alonso. "We also liked the modern, web 2.0 interface that is by far the most informative and intuitive we have seen. This is important both to us and our customers who cannot spend time and resources learning complex software." On top of that, UPM has gained the ability to extend their offering with backup to public clouds.
