Soilmoisture Equipment Corp – one of the world’s leading manufacturers of agronomy laboratory equipment – now uses NAKIVO Backup & Replication to protect their VMware VMs

CAMPBELL, CA – November 24, 2014 — / — NAKIVO Inc., the fastest growing virtualization and cloud backup software company for VMware environments, today announced that Soilmoisture Equipment Corp – one of the world’s leading manufacturers of agronomy laboratory equipment – has selected NAKIVO Backup & Replication to protect their VMware environment.

Located in Santa Barbara, California’s beautiful central coast, Soilmoisture Equipment Corp. manufactures agronomy laboratory equipment for over 50 years. The company is the supplier of agricultural laboratory and field sampling equipment to over 10,000 agronomists: every day, universities, colleges, government agencies, commercial agriculture, and industry around the world rely on Soilmoisture agronomic equipment. The company has developed a reputation of best in service and quality that spans over a half a century of innovation. Over the years, the company has developed a number of revolutionary tools, which have radically transformed irrigation practices, allowing for the establishment of soil-moisture standards now used worldwide.

Soilmoisture is using VMware’s hypervisor to run business-critical workloads. The company has virtualized their tier one applications and databases including Microsoft Exchange, SharePoint, domain controller, data servers, and QAD MFG/PRO for sales, accounting, inventory and shop floor control.

For a few years, Soilmoisture has used a VM data protection product to protect their VMware infrastructure: business-critical VMs were backed up daily and backup copies were sent offsite for secure storage. As the company’s infrastructure has grown, so did the need for VM data protection. “However, the other vendor could not resolve a very simple reseller’s mistake, where a 1-socket license was bought instead of a 2-socket license for our new ESXi server. To make things worse, after spending money on additional licenses and maintenance, we were then told we have NO valid licenses,” said Robert Elliott, Computer Services Manager at Soilmoisture.

“So we went shopping and studied all VM backup solutions available on the market,” said Robert. “What we found is that NAKIVO Backup & Replication is not only equivalent to our current VM backup, but it is easier to use and much more affordable to buy and maintain,” he added.

Soilmoisture now uses NAKIVO Backup & Replication to protect their business-critical VMs. After deploying the product, the company has successfully performed file and VM recoveries. “NAKIVO Backup & Replication enables us to reliably protect our VMware infrastructure at a price point that is at least 2X lower than competitive products,” said Robert.
