Quotes From Members
We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use.
Here are some excerpts of what they said:
Pros
"Nakivo's reporting features have helped a lot. They give my boss high visibility into what's going on, which is crucial because we had a data breach in the past where we lost about 12 years of data. That's why we bought several appliances, and we replicate the same backup twice a day to three different depositories.""The updates are problem-free, so we can keep Nakivo up to date on the server and NAS too.""The product is good for protecting very low-budget offices, whereas other solutions fail in terms of cost and footprint of the VMs involved.""Most valuable for DimenXional Cloud is the API provided by Nakivo which allows us to implement the software in all types of solutions.""It is easy to set up using the included virtual appliance and also includes agents for most NAS systems.""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.""Nakivo offers direct support through the graphical interface and this is great to have if you need quick help.""The price is much lower than competitors that do the same function."

More Nakivo Pros →

"The solution can scale as needed.""It's a very good solution if you want to protect your data across two data centers, or you have a middle man or many administrators who use these solutions for protecting their data. It's very reliable compared to other solutions that are most often not storage-based.""You can see how the logs are applied, check the apply time, and how far behind the standby is at any given time.""Backup and application continuity are most valuable.""The most important feature is that if I want to test the database at the disaster recovery site, I can take a snapshot, test it, and then revert it back to the original state without needing to restore the complete database from the primary data center to the disaster recovery.""One of the most valuable features is real-time replication. The version we're using is reliable and easy to deploy."

Cons
"I had to manually install SNMP, which wasn't hard, but a step I had to take, to plug this into the monitoring system.""One of the things I liked least about this software is when an update was pushed to one of the servers we had, somehow we didn't receive the update and needed some quick troubleshooting.""Personally, I would like to have the ability to backup older legacy systems on the new versions as well.""Updating VM Tools on a replicated VM could be better.""In the loading of a backup, choosing what to restore seems to be a lengthy process, but it has always worked in my restore tests.""I would like to see support for backing up from other platforms, such as physical machines.""Space is always an issue.""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."

More Nakivo Cons →

"Overall, there are some operational issues that need to be dealt with.""The usage of block storage devices in the cloud or migration of a type of storage from one site to another site can be improved. Currently, we have to use multi-node to single node because of the lack of storage support on the Azure side. It did not really work. Our DBA had to spend a lot of time tweaking the Data Guard tools, or the underlying Oracle VMs, to make sure that Data Guard would run on top of different types of storage. So, if it can support transporting or getting from one type of storage to another type of storage in a different site or a different technology, it would be very helpful.""They may need to include the monitoring and the alerting part in Data Guard.""We would like to be able to see the date time stamp when you execute DGMGRL commands.""Oracle could be improved by the ability to manage it on the cloud. This on-premises version is secure and reliable, but I'm sure that they will soon provide a cloud solution that will be even better. In one to two years, we will probably move to the cloud—we have already moved to the cloud with Microsoft Exchange, but our databases are still on-premises. I would prefer managing a cloud version of Oracle.""The IP implementation and maintenance are a little bit hard to manage across Oracle solutions, including Oracle Data Guard."
