"It is an excellent product. It is easy to deploy, stable, and fast. Their support is excellent."
"Every new version has got some tweaks and improvements in stability and speed."
"The solution has a user-friendly interface and is easy to configure."
"We have found all the features of Nakivo to be useful and the solution is easier to use compared to Proxmox. It is user-friendly, we are very satisfied."
"The product is good for protecting very low-budget offices, whereas other solutions fail in terms of cost and footprint of the VMs involved."
"The features that we like the most are the Backup Copy and Active Directory Integration. They have helped us to save a lot of time since we do not have to make the backup copies “by hand”."
"Nakivo's reporting features have helped a lot. They give my boss high visibility into what's going on, which is crucial because we had a data breach in the past where we lost about 12 years of data. That's why we bought several appliances, and we replicate the same backup twice a day to three different depositories."
"The user interface in general is very good. I"
"The most valuable feature is the ease of creating a backup copy job to get the backups to a second device."
"Basically, how it works is that you have a single local drive, and then you have a cloud backup. It'd be nice if you could rotate the single local backup drive. As of now, you can't."
"What must be improved is the response time to technical support requests."
"There is a lack of native (web-based) update functionality."
"It'll help if they offered some automation and more usability for partners."
"The first implementation is a bit difficult but once is up and running is rock solid and extremely easy to manage."
"More statistic options would be a great feature."
"At the moment I am pleased with what Nakivo does but I would like more reporting functions and if possible, integration with my RMM system."
"When you schedule some jobs, you should be able to see a list of the jobs contained within each. You have to open up the editor to see what is inside. You must click through and edit stuff. Each time, it asks you to save or discard changes. It's very annoying. You only see the name of the scheduled job, and you need to edit it to see what's it's inside."
"In the future, I would like to see support for backing up data to more cloud platforms, besides Amazon."
