eLogic uses NAKIVO Backup and Replication to Protect 350 VMs


NAKIVO Inc. has announced today that eLogic has chosen NAKIVO Backup & Replication to deliver VM Backup-as-a-Service. For its Internet and cloud provider services, eLogic uses over 350 VMware VMs running on 20 ESXi hosts in their infrastructure. The VMs primarily contain Web data, such as files, IIS, Apache, Microsoft SQL Server, MySQL, Oracle, Postgress, and so on.

Previously eLogic used a legacy backup solution to protect VM data, which treated VMs as physical machines and required installing network agents inside the OS of backed up systems. This approach had a number of disadvantages: time-consuming maintenance of backup agents, complex networking, incomplete customer isolation, very long recovery process which required rebuilding VMs prior to restoring the data, and no self-service for customers.

eLogic tested the leading VM data protection solutions available on the market. The NAKIVO feature set matched the team’s requirements for a new VM backup solution. Built for VMware, the product can be deployed on Windows and Linux OS, and has an intuitive Web user interface. With the multi-tenancy feature, service providers can deploy just one copy of the product to manage multiple isolated clients through a single pane of glass. In multi-tenant mode, each client can be granted access to their VM data protection jobs and perform VM backup, replication, and recovery for themselves through the web-based self-service portal.

Most importantly for eLogic, NAKIVO Backup & Replication provides the ability to instantly recover files and Exchange objects directly from compressed and deduplicated VM backups, eliminating the need to re-create the VM and recover all of its data.

I think NAKIVO is a perfect fit for both clients and cloud service providers,

said Marco Musolesi, CIO at eLogic.

Multi-tenancy enables deploying and managing clients from a single pane of glass, while each client has access to only their own backups, and can instantly recover files, Exchange objects, and VMs without our assistance.

eLogic now uses NAKIVO Backup & Replication to protect 350 VMs. With an easy to use web based interface the company is now able to quickly protect newly deployed tenants and provide customers with access to their VM backups via the self-service interface. Because NAKIVO Backup & Replication natively supports VMware without agents, and provides the ability to recover files directly from compressed and deduplicated VM backups, eLogic has improved file and VM recovery time by 10X.
