More IBM ProtectTIER Pros →

"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."

Cons
"IBM ProtectTIER could improve by being more user-friendly.""The backup for a large amount of data is slow."

More IBM ProtectTIER Cons →

"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."

    Overview

    IBM TS7650G ProtecTIER Deduplication Gateway is designed to meet the disk-based data protection needs of the enterprise data center while enabling significant infrastructure cost reductions. The solution offers industry-leading inline deduplication performance and scalability up to 1 petabyte (PB) of physical storage capacity per system, and can provide up to 25 PB or more backup storage capacity. Combined with IBM or third-party storage, TS7650G ProtecTIER Deduplication Gateway provides a powerful disk-based repository to improve the performance, retention and availability of backup and archive data in a small footprint for energy and cost efficiency.

    Nakivo is a backup and recovery software tool that provides fast, reliable, and affordable VM backup, replication, and DR for virtual, cloud, and SaaS environments. The solution includes reliable ransomware protection for backups stored locally, in the cloud, or on tape. It is a suitable option for companies of all sizes.

    Nakivo Features

    Nakivo has many valuable key features. Some of the most useful ones include:

    • Reliable backups: The solution allows you to create incremental, app-aware backups for your virtual, cloud, physical, and SaaS workloads.
    • Multiple destinations: With Nakivo, you can implement the 3-2-1 strategy by storing backups on site, offsite, on tape, or in the cloud.
    • Instant verification: The solution’s instant verification feature makes it possible for you to test your backups and replicas to ensure successful and rapid ransomware recovery instantly.
    • Ransomware-proof backups: This feature makes backups in cloud storage and local Linux repositories immutable.
    • Instant and full recoveries: Instantly restore full VMs or files, folders, and application objects from compressed backups.
    • Automated disaster recovery: With Nakivo you can use VM replicas to automatically launch failover and failback and ensure continuous availability.
    • Immutability: Protect backups from ransomware encryption and accidental modification with the solution’s immutability feature. Immutable backups use the write-once-read-many (WORM) technology to store an unaltered copy of sensitive data that you can safely recover.

    Nakivo Benefits

    There are many benefits to implementing Nakivo. Some of the biggest advantages the solution offers include:

    • Offsite backups: With Nakivo you can send backups offsite, to tape, or cloud storage (Amazon S3, Wasabi, Azure Blob, Backblaze B2) for more reliable protection against ransomware.
    • Minimize downtime: The solution offers a variety of ransomware recovery options to resume your IT operations almost instantly after an attack.
    • Offer backup as a service: Nakivo enables managed service providers to deliver backup as a service, protecting up to 1,000 tenants within one deployment of the solution.
    • Reliable protection for all workloads: With this solution, you can perform image-based, application-aware, incremental backups for virtual, physical, cloud, SaaS, and mixed workloads. You can also create up to 4,000 recovery points per backup.
    • Offsite storage for better security: You can automatically send backup copies to a secondary repository off-site or to a public cloud (Amazon S3, Wasabi, Azure Blob, Backblaze B2). This allows you to avoid a single point of failure.

    Reviews from Real Users

    Nakivo is a solution that stands out when compared to many of its competitors. Some of its major advantages are that it is fast, simple to use, and has good cloud integration.

    Rahim K., Founder at CAE LLC, says, “Nakivo is fast and user-friendly. Compression over Ethernet is the best feature, and Nakivo's object-level restoration is also excellent. All the features are well designed, work properly, and meet our needs, and there are some extra features that we don't use.”

    Dustin P., IT Systems / Security / Communications Administrator at Bennett International Group, LLC, comments, "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."

    Colin A., Director at A-Tech Services Limited, mentions, "The speed of the backups and replications is fantastic and, for the most part, the simplicity of use has been wonderful."
