Quotes From Members
We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use.
Here are some excerpts of what they said:
Pros
"This is a stable solution.""The solution is easy to use, flexible and has a lot of out-of-the-box functionality. You can configure the dashboards or you can use a script. However, to fully utilize its capabilities you will want to use a lot of scripts which you will need advanced training. The reports can be customized for many things, such as chargeback billing.""It generates very detailed reports, which makes things easier when it comes to IT auditing.""The deduplication is probably the most valuable feature of that requirement.""It has a lot of stock reports. I believe over 300 canned reports, which for the most part meet a lot of generic needs."

"The interface is basic and very easy to use which is what we are looking for.""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 product is very scalable, robust, has an easy setup with a short-duration deployment and good technical support.""This product has helped to centralize backups and made it easy to recover data.""The most important feature besides the easy management of the different backup jobs is the automated e-mail notification functionality.""Nakivo's backup and replication product has allowed us to implement a disaster recovery solution with a target repository in the cloud.""The fact that it works with Synology is a big valuable point. Also, that we can check the functionality of a backup so easily. Cloud integration is valuable because the ability to not only backup locally, but to the cloud, has been a great addition to the already fantastic product. We can save so much time with Nakivo and are very happy that we found it and loved to use it for our solutions.""The main advantage from our perspective is the ability to plug this solution into an existing infrastructure on a cheap device and point the backup at the server targets and configure the backup options in a simple menu; linking to a cheap cloud resource for a simple solution for off-site storage."

Cons
"They should empower their customers with the ability to upgrade this solution as long as it's in the same major release.""It is difficult to manage the solution with the available tools. You need to know exactly what are you are doing.""The functionality of the Data Protection Advisor is limited and is something that is lacking in this solution. Other solutions like CloudIQ and DDMC provide a much better outlook on how data protection should be done.""There is a steep learning curve to use the interface and to create new reports, this could be made easier. If the solution could provide more drag and drop functionality to build more advanced reports that would be very helpful.""It's a bit difficult for first-time users."

More Dell Data Protection Advisor Cons →

"There could be better integration with other solutions, such as Amazon S3.""Automatic updates do not work, and every update has to be done manually.""They need to add a failover feature to the Essential Pro license in case the environment is a simple virtual environment and the client does not need to upgrade.""The interface might be improved, but the interface of every product might be improved.""The process for getting unused diskspace back from the data repository is slow.""While the solution provides mostly what we need, it would be ideal if there were some additional feature capabilities for the API.""We would like to back up File Shares to Amazon S3/Wasabi.""Updating VM Tools on a replicated VM could be better."

Pricing and Cost Advice
  • "It's not very expensive — I think the price is fair."
  • "You have to procure the license when you are ordering or quoting for Dell Data Protection Suite (DPS). DPS is bundled with the suite and comes with a license. However, if you purchase NetWorker separately then you will have to procure the license for DPS separately."
  • "For pricing, I would rate Dell 2 out of 5. It's affordable."

  • "You have a lot of different options when it comes to pricing and the pricing models are pretty flexible and affordable."
  • "The product is quite cheap compared to other products on the market, but despite this, it is rich in features both at the level of backup and recovery as well as at the level of additional options."
  • "Nakivo Backup & Replication also have another great value, which is that it is one of the lowest prices on the market."
  • "The licensing currently allows for host-based licensing, which is advantageous if you have a lot of data on a few hosts."
  • "Cost is very appropriate for SMEs."
  • "Nakivo has a good price-performance ratio."
  • "As a free solution for a small environment, this is a great solution!"
  • "Talk to the sales department about all of the possibilities, as they will help you to find the best solution for your setup."

    With clear visibility, you can gain actionable insight and effectively manage service levels while reducing costs and complexity. You can also collect and report on that data to help other stakeholders make the best decisions for your organization.

    Data Protection Advisor is available as part of Dell Data Protection Suite.
