NAFCO leverages VirtuIT’s Backup as a Service to eliminate impact on production systems



NAFCO is a seafood wholesaler located in MD that focuses on delivery of high-quality products. In addition to quality seafood, NAFO operates to help analyze firms’ operations and designs custom merchandising programs to meet business needs.


With current on-prem & cloud backups extending beyond the allocated backup window and impacting production systems, end-user productivity began to suffer.

IT lacked the system controls over the backup & recovery process and spent too much time doing daily backup administration. They also lacked the granularity needed for efficient data recovery.

Monthly recurring costs for secure cloud backups were also excessive.

“The VirtuIT team provided an absolutely flawless conversion to an excellent backup system. The staff is extremely knowledgeable, and they are very responsive to any customers needs or questions. They treated the aspect of a backup system like the vital business process that it is and gave me one less headache each day.
