Gilat Satellite Networks, a telecommunications company based in Peru, saves time on VM recovery with NAKIVO Backup & Replication

Sparks, NV – October 02, 2022 — / / — NAKIVO Inc., a fast-growing software company for protecting physical, virtual, and cloud environments, has announced today that Gilat Satellite Networks has selected NAKIVO Backup & Replication to protect their environment.

Gilat Satellite Networks is a telecommunication company that for many years has been bringing development to the towns and companies located in the most remote areas of Peru. Gilat offers customers the best business ICT solutions to facilitate development and improve productivity. Gilat has been in Peru since 1999, contributing to the integration of more than 8,000 towns through a public-private partnership with Peru’s FITEL (Telecommunications Investment Fund).

Gilat occupies five sites with 90 physical servers and more than 500 virtual machines. The main virtual machines, holding applications and databases, manage microwaves, energy and cooling, optical fiber, security, and networking. Gilat strongly believes in the importance of backing up critical virtual machines to ensure that in case of a disaster, every virtual machine can be quickly recovered. For Gilat, data loss can affect the execution and continuity of the company’s projects and the timely production of reports.

Until recently, the company used manually created VM snapshots and stored them on a separate storage device. With this approach, quick recovery was not possible, as everything had to be done manually and the process was not centralized. Gilat needed a VM backup solution that could back up a large amount of data reliably and provide fast VM recovery while maintaining business continuity.

NAKIVO Backup & Replication is a solution designed specifically for virtualized environments and provides a variety of functionalities for SMBs and enterprises. With NAKIVO Backup & Replication multiple sites can be successfully managed and thousands of VMs can be backed up and recovered. NAKIVO Backup & Replication also offers flexibility and variety of installation options and ease of management. “We chose NAKIVO Backup & Replication as our preferred VM backup solution due to the product’s ability to back up and recover VMs quickly, ease of management, and finally having all of our processes automated,” says Renzo Castañeda, Chief of IT Infrastructure at Gilat Satellite Networks.

“We installed NAKIVO Backup & Replication on a physical server, with Windows Server as OS. The installation was super easy and fast. We downloaded the correct installer and followed the instructions,” says Renzo. “The web interface is quite intuitive in the creation of tasks, simple monitoring of jobs, and showing us only the necessary information. Overall, we are quite happy with the looks and feel of the product.”

“Currently, we back up only our critical servers. Critical servers are backed up weekly on different days, distributing the load. Compared to the other solutions available on the market, NAKIVO’s backup is fast and does not slow down any of our other services,” says Renzo.

With the manual snapshots, recovery was not a centralized task for Gilat Satellite Networks and required considerable time from the IT team in the past. “Instant VM recovery is one of the main features that we have used, and the feature has helped us recover VMs quickly when a disaster has occurred, saving us considerable time. With instant VM recovery, we managed to run our business smoothly, without any major disruptions,” says Renzo.

“NAKIVO Backup & Replication is intuitive, practical, and simple, with a friendly and easy-to-manage web interface. It allows us to back up critical data in an automated and centralized way, without any manual intervention,” says Renzo. “The most important for us was saving time, and having our data available as quickly as possible, in the event of a disaster. Compared to the other solutions, NAKIVO Backup & Replication has a fair balance between cost and product effectiveness.”
