NAKIVO Inc., the fastest growing virtualization and cloud backup software company for VMware environments, today announced it has earned recognition on The Channel Company’s CRN 100 Coolest Cloud Computing Vendors of 2015. This annual list recognizes some of the most innovative cloud companies supporting the IT channel today.
The 100 Coolest Cloud Computing Vendors honor is presented to companies based on their approach to creating innovative products, services or partner programs that have helped channel partners transform into true solution providers, ultimately helping customers take advantage of the ease of use, flexibility, scalability and savings that cloud computing offers.
This year’s 100 Coolest Cloud Computing honorees are identified across five major categories including platforms, infrastructure, storage, security and software. This list is an effort to help solution providers navigate through the ambiguity of the cloud market to identify the vendors, products and services that can help elevate their cloud services offerings. Companies were chosen based on data and information gathered from solution provider nominations along with input from the CRN editorial team.
NAKIVO is delivering a new way for Cloud Providers, enterprises, and SMBs to protect their VMware environments more reliably, efficiently, and cost effectively. NAKIVO Backup & Replication is VMware-certified, purely agentless, and can be deployed on both Linux and Windows. Featuring a simple and intuitive Web UI, the product can back up and replicate VMware VMs onsite, offsite, and to private/public clouds. NAKIVO Backup & Replication supports live applications and databases, instantly recovers VMs, files, and application objects directly from compressed and deduplicated VM backups, speeds up data transfer with network acceleration, and reduces data size with global deduplication and compression.
NAKIVO Backup & Replication is recognized for its ability to integrate with Amazon cloud in a single click and effortlessly back up VMware VMs to a reliable and affordable cloud backup repository. In addition, NAKIVO Backup & Replication enables creating multiple isolated tenants within a single product deployment and managing them from a single pane of glass. This enables managed services, cloud, and hosting providers to introduce VM Backup-as-a-Service, Replication-as-a-Service, and Disaster Recovery-as-a-Service to their clients more easily and cost-effectively.
“Widespread demand for cloud computing solutions is increasing across businesses of all shapes and sizes. As organizations become more willing to adopt cloud technology and services, experienced solution providers are in greater demand." said Robert Faletra, CEO, The Channel Company. “The 100 Coolest Cloud Computing Vendors list enables solution providers to engage with companies who are poised to help them capitalize on these opportunities.”
“Cloud backup and disaster recovery becomes the new normal for organizations of all sizes and industries,” said Bruce Talley, CEO and co-founder of NAKIVO. "With NAKIVO Backup & Replication SMBs and enterprises can save their VM backups in Amazon cloud, while NAKIVO Cloud Providers can deliver VM BaaS, RaaS, and DRaaS to their customers.”
