We performed a comparison between IBM ProtectTIER and Nakivo based on real PeerSpot user reviews.Find out in this report how the two Backup and Recovery Software solutions compare in terms of features, pricing, service and support, easy of deployment, and ROI.
"The cataloging is the best feature. It takes millions of frames for the backup. It's incremental, so it takes less time to complete."
"Overall IBM ProtectTIER is a great solution. It is easy to use."
"The solution is highly stable."
"The most valuable feature is the ease of creating a backup copy job to get the backups to a second device."
"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 uses all the bandwidth available if not limited and backs up entire servers with all data about four times faster than Windows Server Backup and EaseUS TODO Backup."
"I could install and configure the trial version in maybe half an hour and had a successful backup of our file server on the same night."
"The speed of the backups and replications is fantastic and, for the most part, the simplicity of use has been wonderful."
"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."
"The chat functionality with Nakivo Support in the web interface is very unique and we love it."
"With Nakivo, I have the peace of mind that all of my production environment is safely backed up and can be restored safely, easily, and quickly with a few clicks."
"IBM ProtectTIER could improve by being more user-friendly."
"The backup for a large amount of data is slow."
"It would be helpful to be able to have a custom footprint so that only the required features are installed."
"It would be good if I could have a remote upgrade of our Synology Transporters, but the manual upgrade is easy and no problem at all."
"The interface can be a little clunky at times."
"Personally, I would like to have the ability to backup older legacy systems on the new versions as well."
"It would be good to have some Oracle database backup capability from the Linux OS in the next release."
"The backup speed needs improvement."
"We are satisfied with Nakivo, but if anything could be improved, I think it would be more real-time as opposed to email support availability."
"There are many features we have not had the opportunity to try, such as Tape Backups, Office 365 backups, and many other things."
