NAKIVO Software Chosen to Backup MIB School of Management Data

When it came to backing up the systems and data on behalf of the MIB School of Management, based out of California, the institution's ICT manager, Lodovico Bonini, chose NAKIVO Backup & Replication to meet their needs. Although it's only been on the market for a few short years, the software suite has already proven itself time and time again in the field. However, as Bonini points out, the decision was made after some amount of trial and error.

"I was not satisfied because there were many problems and regular failures," said Bonini. "I had to add data manually to the backup of our file, Exchange, and Sharepoint servers, so it was cumbersome to manage each time. I had to backup my file server manually every week and connect from home to my work environment. Overall, I have spent at least a couple of hours on checking backups every weekend."

He continued his statement by saying: "I read on the VMware website that NAKIVO Backup & Replication is a certified product and then I just gGoogled the software. After many months of testing, I was satisfied with the product and the price, so I decided to make a purchase. Before choosing NAKIVO, I have tried five different solutions, but NAKIVO is certainly the simplest solution to install and configure."

In total, the MIB School of Management maintains roughly 20 virtual machines. With all of these running VMware, one would assume that the process of backing up the school's data would be relatively easy. However, the legacy solutions they once used took far too much time. Apart from hastening this process significantly, the recent adoption of NAKIVO Backup & Replication offers increased redundancy, integrated data compression and deduplication functionality. As such, the average storage capacity saved can reach as high as 90%.

However, savings in server storage capacity is just the tip of the iceberg. In the case of the MIB School of Management, Bonini was able to prompt an enormous reduction in labor hours on a per-weekly basis. While one or two hours a week might not sound like much, add those hours over the course of several months or even a year and you'll begin to realize just how much time this software can save your company in the long run.

"Previously, I had to spend about 2 hours during the week on maintenance and verification of backups," continued Bonini. "Now, I spend more or less 15 minutes a week. Overall, it is about an 85% reduction in backup administration time. In the past, I can say that I did not have a properly functional backup solution. With NAKIVO Backup & Replication, you just need to install, configure, and forget about the product because it does everything it promises to do."
