NAKIVO Inc., the fastest-growing provider of data protection software for VMware virtualized environments and cloud backup, announced today it has been recognized as one of 2014’s hottest emerging technology vendors by CRN, a top news source for solution providers and the IT channel. The annual Emerging Vendors list identifies up-and-coming technology vendors that have introduced innovative new products, creating opportunities for channel partners in North America to create high-margin, cutting-edge solutions for their customers.
Built for virtualization, NAKIVO Backup & Replication has been certified by VMware and offers a complete VM data protection feature set for SMB, enterprise, and cloud provider virtualized environments. The product is purely agentless, can be deployed on Windows and Linux, backs up and replicates VMware VMs onsite, offsite, and to private/public clouds, supports live applications and databases, instantly recovers files and application objects directly from compressed and deduplicated VM backups, speeds up data transfer with network acceleration, and reduces data size with global data deduplication and compression.
Over 500 software solution providers in 70 countries across the Americas, Europe, Africa, Middle-East, and Asia-Pacific have joined NAKIVO Partner Program and offer NAKIVO data protection products to their SMB and Enterprise customers. NAKIVO’s Cloud Provider Program has enabled over 50 Managed Services, Cloud, and Hosting Providers to extend their services to VM Backup-as-a-Service (BaaS), Replication-as-a-Service (RaaS), and Disaster Recovery-as-a-Service (DRaaS) for VMware virtualized environments.
“Solution and cloud providers are always on the hunt for the next big technology trend so that they can bring new solutions to their customers before they even know they need them. These vendors are on the forefront of IT innovation and are offering products and services that channel partners can use to stay ahead of the competition,” said Robert Faletra, CEO of The Channel Company, publisher of CRN. “We congratulate 2014’s Emerging Vendors for creating the next wave of technology that will drive the IT industry forward and for opening the door to new, unique solutions from the IT channel.”
“We’re excited that our achievements are recognized by CRN,” said Bruce Talley, CEO and co-founder of NAKIVO Inc. “We are using cutting-edge technologies to help cloud providers, enterprises, and SMBs protect and recover their virtualized data faster, more reliable, and more affordable.”
Companies included in CRN’s 2014 Emerging Vendors list were founded in 2008 or later and are actively working with channel partners in North America. The list, along with information about each vendor, will be published in CRN’s August 2014 issue and will also be available online.
