NAKIVO Inc., a provider of affordable VM backup solutions, announced today that Bradburys Ltd. - one of the largest cheese distributors in United Kingdom - has chosen NAKIVO Backup & Replication to protect their mission critical virtual machines. With NAKIVO Backup & Replication, Bradburys has reduced projected downtime in case of a disaster from 12 hours to just 10 minutes.
Since 1884, Bradburys sources and distributes an unrivalled range of superior cheeses from the UK and Europe. Over the years, Bradburys has won numerous international and local awards for the cheeses that they supply globally, including the industry-recognized Nantwich Gold award for the last 3 years running. The company works with many specialized cheese producers to provide a cost effective route to the market. Bradburys focuses on marketing, accreditations, packaging, and labeling in order to supply its desirable products to the major UK and international supermarket chains and select independent customers.
In 2011, Bradburys decided virtualize their infrastructure. "After the project was complete we realized that whilst we were backing up using our legacy solution we did not have any software in place that would replicate the critical production servers across to our DR site," said Greg Buccheri, IT Manager at Bradburys. "As our systems are quite diverse, it became apparent that any disaster would mean at least 12 hours of downtime."
The company looked at and tried many different solutions searching for one that would not only cover their needs but that would also give them a good ROI. After an extensive search and evaluation, Bradburys has chosen NAKIVO Backup & Replication. "We evaluated other leading VM backup and disaster recovery solutions but selected NAKIVO Backup & Replication for its ability to deliver a 2X to 8X greater ROI versus other available offerings. The unique combination of price, performance, and time saving functionality made NAKIVO Backup & Replication the clear winner for protecting our business critical applications and services," added Greg.
With NAKIVO Backup & Replication, Bradburys has reduced projected disaster downtime from 12 hours to just 10 minutes. Bradburys now also utilizes NAKVIO Backup & Replication as their single solution for backing up, replicating, and protecting their virtualized infrastructure. Bradburys has reduced their recovery time objective (RTO) by 99% while also reaching a new lower recovery point objective (RPO) of just one minute to better support their business critical VMware environment of Microsoft and Oracle applications.
