For example, you are able to do backups of servers, email, OST files, and users. This is a complete backup solution which is very good."

More Arcserve UDP Pros →

"The solution has a user-friendly interface and is easy to configure.""We are able to take backups on a regular interval and restore data/VMs as we choose making the process work as advertised.""Every new version has got some tweaks and improvements in stability and speed.""This is a user-friendly solution that has a lot of certifications and documentation for the Microsoft Hyper-V infrastructure.""Nakivo makes our backs-ups more reliable and easy to recover in case of full damage or partial retrieval of files - all at a convenient cost.""The VM Backup Verification is one of the features I appreciate the most.""The product license and support delivery have been great!""NAKIVO Backup & Replication is very easy to use."

More NAKIVO Backup & Replication Pros →

"It takes much time to verify and consolidate images for backups.""The support could be more knowledgeable and faster.""Licensing can be quite difficult.""The only problem with the solution is that when I change the drive capacity, it has to do a full backup. It's a problem when I have five servers to backup. When I only want to change the size of the drive, I have to do a full backup that can take one week.""The solution can improve by allowing older versions to support the latest version of the OS.""In the most recent version of premium plus the replication has been removed, and it should re-added to the solution.""StorageCraft ShadowProtect can improve by making one console that can control backups of all desktops and servers in one place. Additionally, the recovery process of the backups is very slow and could improve. It's very slow when we went to recover a complete disc but to recover one file is very fast.""The solution can use a lot of bandwidth when the scheduling is not done, it should auto-schedule itself. For example, if there are 50 users connected in the network at 12 o'clock and the backup is not scheduled. At this time the network offices are going to have performance issues when it is doing a backup. Having a feature to auto-schedule a time when the network is not being used often would be beneficial."

More Arcserve UDP Cons →

"Using an independent bootable media to restore full physical machines would enable physical machines that may be serving as Nakivo Director or Transport machines to be reliably restored to service without undue delay, ensuring that an enterprise's local environment remains intact.""An improvement would be to include a general data backup solution that is not only for virtual machines.""Nakivo's implementation documentation could use a little beefing up.""The interface might be improved, but the interface of every product might be improved.""The backup speed needs improvement.""Their product is good and it meets our requirements, however, new features are also most welcome and we never hesitated to try new features.""It could be a little bit faster in terms of backup and offer more reliable SQL server backups.""An improvement would be to give us more control over the email alerts, with different emails going to different addresses based on a set of rules."
