"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 product is very scalable, robust, has an easy setup with a short-duration deployment and good technical support."
"The features that I have found most valuable are that it is a cheaper price and user-friendly."
"The back-up and restore functions work great and it's easy to use."
"Nakivo Backup and Replication's web-based management interface enables intuitive, rapid, and seamless configuration and management of all backup and recovery functionality across the enterprise."
"It is easy to set up using the included virtual appliance and also includes agents for most NAS systems."

"They have great support."
"It's not easy to scale it."
"I really like the reporting options you get for various email reports."

"Updating VM Tools on a replicated VM could be better."
"It would be interesting if it were possible to integrate a mobile app to monitor the system in real-time."
"An additional feature that would be appreciated is disaster recovery automation."
"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."

"In the future, I would like to see support for backing up data to more cloud platforms, besides Amazon."
"Probably the biggest issue I've had is actually paying for the unit, and part of that problem is that they use a third party for the billing."
"I would like to see the real-time replication process improved, and a zero RPO feature added."
"There's a lot that can be made better. For example, it could be more scalable."
"I would like to see more storage options for the free version."
"It seems like Unitrends moved away from enterprise customer engagement and moved more towards the managed service provider market."
