Pros
"Nakivo offers direct support through the graphical interface and this is great to have if you need quick help.""This product has a very clean and intuitive GUI.""It is flexible.""The backups, especially of the incremental type, are really quick (ranging from five to 10 to 45 to 50 minutes depending on the size of the VM).""The product is good for protecting very low-budget offices, whereas other solutions fail in terms of cost and footprint of the VMs involved.""The most valuable feature is the ease of creating a backup copy job to get the backups to a second device.""The chat functionality with Nakivo Support in the web interface is very unique and we love it.""The product is very scalable, robust, has an easy setup with a short-duration deployment and good technical support."

Cons
"Integrations maybe helpful for NAKIVO. I think end-to-end backup and user backup will be useful to have. The price could be reduced as well. I also think that AD integration should be more available.""While the solution provides mostly what we need, it would be ideal if there were some additional feature capabilities for the API.""There is a lack of native (web-based) update functionality.""There are some errors requiring support to correct and bugs and glitches should be addressed.""From our experience, the main factor that could be improved is adding more cloud services that are supported as a backup repository.""Updating VM Tools on a replicated VM could be better.""The backup speed needs improvement.""Updating VM Tools on a replicated VM could be better."

More Nakivo Cons →

"There isn't much to improve. They just need to follow the trend or the development of other Linux products. Follow in terms of making the product compatible with new versions of Linux. They just need to include as many versions for Linux as possible.""The solution is pretty stable right now, however, we believe that the solution could be made to be even more stable.""They could be more customer-friendly.""The integration needs improvement."
