NAKIVO Reduces VM Backup Administration Time by 20% for Mondialpol

Mondialpol Service Group, an Italian security services provider, is using NAKIVO Backup & Replication to protect their VMware environment and reduces VM backup administration time by 20%.

Business Challenge

Mondialpol Service Group is a group of established and prestigious companies which offer a wide range of security services in Italy. Over the years, Mondialpol Service Group has gained an extensive experience in the analysis and design of integrated security services, while also performing security management and supervision, CIT, and reception services for a number of banks, commercial, retail, and industrial groups. Mondialpol Service Group operates in nearly 20 provinces across Italy and has approximately 1,500 employees.

Mondialpol’s Service Group IT infrastructure contains several dozens of VMware VMs. Data and applications that are stored in the VMware VMs allow the company to provide its professional services and consulting to multiple industries. For Mondialpol, data protection is a key component of ensuring uninterrupted services and maximum protection for high value goods and business assets of their customers.

In the past, Mondialpol’s virtual environment was protected with another backup solution that was unable to meet the group’s data protection needs. Excessively long VM backup and backup administration time were common challenges that were unresolved, so it was time to move on to another backup solution that would guarantee high performance and data availability at all times.

Solution

Shift Srl , an IT Services company located in Como, Italy, has a long established relationship with Mondialpol and is responsible for Mondialpol’s IT management. Shift Srl contacted Avangate Italia, a NAKIVO Gold Partner, for advice on a backup solution for Mondialpol. Avangate Italia recommended NAKIVO Backup & Replication as a possible replacement and the product's deployment was performed by the technical departments from both Shift Srl and Avangate Italia. After an in-depth testing and analysis, NAKIVO Backup & Replication was purchased for Mondialpol's VMware environment.

"For several years, we have been taking care of Mondialpol Service Group with great satisfaction for both parties. Due to the company's specific sector, Mondialpol is constantly searching for innovative and advanced solutions, in order to improve work flow, security, and reliability. We found a perfect backup solution in NAKIVO Backup & Replication, and in Avangate Italia, a supporting distributor," says Andrea Marucci, Owner of Shift Srl.

"Deep collaboration with NAKIVO Backup & Replication, interaction with Shift Srl, and our technical department skills, allowed for a quick analysis phase and a successful implementation with an extremely collaborative customer. The result of this implementation was a noticeable global improvement of speed, security, and resource utilization, in both technical and financial areas for Mondialpol," says Andrea Orsucci, Brand Manager at Avangate Italia.

"We now have a solid backup solution, and we owe this success to the professional group that took care of us. In this way, we can concentrate on our customer's security because we already solved our data protection needs with NAKIVO Backup & Replication," says Marco Mura, CIO at Mondialpol Service Group.
