NAKIVO Enables Manufacturer to Reduce VMware Backup Costs by 60%

Branch Manufacturing has selected NAKIVO Backup & Replication to protect their mission-critical VMs

NAKIVO Inc., #1 virtualization data protection software provider, has announced that Branch Manufacturing - the leading sheet metal fabrication and components manufacturer in Minnesota - has selected NAKIVO Backup & Replication to protect their mission-critical VMs.

Branch Manufacturing began as a tool and die shop in 1952. Then located in an 80'x80' space, the company has since become one of the country's leading suppliers of machinery parts. From prototype through production, Branch Manufacturing offers a complete spectrum of in-house manufacturing services from its 60,000 square foot production plant. The company is a well-trusted supplier for industry-leading manufacturers including Arctic Cat, Electrolux, Goodyear Tire, Polaris, Hasbro, Toro, and Thermo King.

Branch Manufacturing has adopted a first generation VM backup tool, which could not deliver the reliability and simplicity that the business required. “With our old solution, VM backups often failed and required manual intervention to complete successfully,” said Dan Long, MIS Director at Branch Manufacturing.

In search for a simple and reliable data protection solution Dan referred to Nexus – a leading IT solution and services provider in Minnesota – who recommended NAKIVO Backup & Replication. “After testing several VM data protection products side by side, we realized that NAKIVO Backup & Replication along with their highly responsive and helpful support team was the best VM backup solution for our needs,” he said.

Since implementing NAKIVO Backup & Replication, Branch Manufacturing has dramatically improved VM backup efficiency. “With NAKIVO Backup & Replication, my backup jobs are always successful. It just works!” said Dan. “With advanced VM Backup functionality and impressive performance, NAKIVO Backup & Replication has reduced our overall virtualization data protection costs by 60%.” added Dan.
