"It is a point-in-time restore, which is quite handy."
"Continuous replication with lower RTO and RPO is the most innovative feature. Its tight integration with VMware for VMware VMs is also valuable."
"The most valuable feature is that it is journal-based and you don't have to replicate a lot of data."
"The installation is straightforward if the version you have is compatible with your infrastructure."
"The solution is quite stable. We haven't experienced any kind of bug or glitch. We haven't experienced crashes."
"The product license and support delivery have been great!"
"The backups, especially of the incremental type, are really quick (ranging from five to 10 to 45 to 50 minutes depending on the size of the VM)."
"The user interface in general is very good. I"
"Nakivo's backup and replication product has allowed us to implement a disaster recovery solution with a target repository in the cloud."
"The product is good for protecting very low-budget offices, whereas other solutions fail in terms of cost and footprint of the VMs involved."
"It is easy to manage all of the individual backup jobs, check the status every day, and it can even send an email to keep us informed."
"This product has helped to centralize backups and made it easy to recover data."
"The backup and replication are great."
"The solution could improve by being more easier to use. However, once you have used it for a while it becomes easier. Additionally, there could be better support and compatibility with management by having a command-line interface. This would be beneficial for the customers."
"I would like to have the HTML 5 interface working because it is currently not functioning with the VMware environment."
"It can have better integration. It would be good if, in addition to VMware VM, it can also support other hypervisors. I also want to see support for Oracle databases. As of now, it supports only SQL and Exchange. It would be good to also support other databases."
"The solution is not easy to use. It's actually quite hard. If it could be simplified it might be better for the end user."
"In the next release of this software, I would like to see options that help to decrease the bandwidth required, such as compressing the data."
"In the future, I would like to see support for backing up data to more cloud platforms, besides Amazon."
"It would be great if they had a Let's Encrypt integration."
"Automatic updates do not work, and every update has to be done manually."
"The interface can be a little clunky at times."
"It would be helpful to be able to have a custom footprint so that only the required features are installed."
"The only thing we have encountered that we would like to see improved in the future are error messages. They could be more detailed and helpful, without the need to send logs to support. Failing that, the part of the log related to the error could be displayed alongside the error message, so I can investigate the error without looking through all of those logs that I'm able to download."
"I need no more valuable features for backs-up. I have not yet tried the latest release, however, I have all the features that I need."
"Due to the fact that we are HP and Fugit partners as well, it would be nice if Nakivo would allow support for HP and Fugit storage."
