Campbell, CA, — March 25, 2013 — / — NAKIVO Inc., #1 VM data protection software provider, announced today that GRW – the leading road tanker manufacturer in South Africa – has selected NAKIVO Backup & Replication to protect their mission-critical VMs.

Founded in 1996, GRW is a multi-tiered company that designs and manufactures superior road tankers for the bulk transport market and also provides essential maintenance, repair, and financial services to fleet operators across Southern Africa and the United Kingdom. The company is the preferred fuel tanker supplier locally, and in the UK. Being one-hundred-percent committed to excellence, GRW has won a large number of local and international awards, including the first position in the Best Supplier of Trailers/Bodies category of the prestigious Focus on Excellence Awards.

The IT department was not satisfied with their previous backup solution, because it was slow, unreliable, and could not recover files from VM backups. “We had to spend nearly 3 hours to recover a single file, because we first had to rebuild the entire VM and then recover the file. This was unacceptable, since downtime is not tolerated in our business.” said Milko Mihov, IT manager at GRW. “After testing several data protection products, we realized that NAKIVO Backup & Replication is a clear winner. The product gives us reliability and features that enable our business to run smoothly even in case of infrastructure failures.”

NAKIVO Backup & Replication is built specifically for VMware environments, features near-continuous data protection, changed block tracking, compression, and multi-threaded VM processing. By unifying VM backup and replication in a single solution, NAKIVO can deliver fast and reliable VM backup, replication, and recovery. “With advanced functionality and leading recovery performance, NAKIVO Backup & Replication delivers the greatest value versus the alternatives for protecting our virtualized environment,” said Milko.

With NAKIVO Backup & Replication GRW has reduced VM and file recovery time from 3 hours to nearly 3 minutes. “Backup speed is important, but recovery speed is even more important,” said Milko. “With NAKIVO Backup & Replication, VM and file recovery is 60X faster than our previous solution, enabling us to have greater overall uptime while also replicating our VMs more frequently to meet shorter recovery point objectives.”


Headquartered in Silicon Valley, California NAKIVO is a privately-held company that develops and markets a line of next generation data protection products for VMware virtualized environments with Microsoft and Oracle applications. NAKIVO provides the most intuitive, fast, and affordable VM backup and replication solution enabling SMBs to protect, encrypt, compress and de-duplicate data both onsite with local storage and offsite with public clouds.
