"The ability to use a variety of cloud providers rather than being tied into one is a huge bonus.""This enables us to do quick granular file recovery as and when required but also to do whole-site relocation in the case of a total loss scenario.""The user interface is good, and it's user-friendly. I also like its usability with hyper-convergence products like Nutanix and others in the data infrastructure.""The interface is basic and very easy to use which is what we are looking for.""NAKIVO is easy to use and pretty easy to set up.""The solution is stable; there is no need to retry any sort of jobs in daily operations.""It is flexible.""The speed of the backups and replications is fantastic and, for the most part, the simplicity of use has been wonderful."

Cons
"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."

"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.""The way encryption is currently working could be improved. Currently, it's not possible to encrypt the backup to an NFS share directly. It needs to have the encryption within the Transporter/VM to enable encryption, which isn't optimal. So I'm hoping that in the near future this function will be implemented.""The first implementation is a bit difficult but once is up and running is rock solid and extremely easy to manage.""Personally, I would like to have the ability to backup older legacy systems on the new versions as well.""The interface can be a little clunky at times.""I would love to see BackBlaze B2 implementation in the future, as that would be our preferred cloud destination, but Amazon and Wasabi are both very great choices in the meantime.""It would be interesting if it were possible to integrate a mobile app to monitor the system in real-time.""My first thought was maybe the GUI could be improved, although it works."

The solution’s unique Augmented Inline Deduplication also gives you massive savings on your backup storage and dramatically reduces costs.

    NAKIVO Backup & Replication provides image-based, application-aware, and forever-incremental backup for VMware, Hyper-V, and AWS EC2 VMs. This means that NAKIVO Backup & Replication can capture all VM data, ensure the  consistency of applications and databases (such as Exchange, Active Directory, MS SQL, SharePoint) running in VMs, and transfer only changes to the backup repository. NAKIVO Backup & Replication uses native change tracking technologies (VMware CBT/Hyper-V RCT) to instantly identify changed data. For each VM backup, you can save up to 1,000 recovery points and rotate them on a daily, weekly, monthly, and yearly basis.
