Nakivo: Data Protection For Virtual Machines

CEO: Bruce Talley

Nakivo Backup & Replication software from Campbell, Calif., provides virtual machine data protection for VMware environments. The application features live virtual machines running applications and databases, deduplication and compression to reduce the backup capacities, network acceleration to improve data transfer speeds, full granular recovery of virtual machines, cloud integration, and the ability to run backup and replication jobs as often as every minute.

Customers of Nakivo, which recently launched a series of new training and certification programs for channel partners, can use the software as part of a backup-as-a-service solution.
