"The backup for physical machines and replication for the virtual environment are the most valuable aspects."
"The chat functionality with Nakivo Support in the web interface is very unique and we love it."
"The solution has a user-friendly interface and is easy to configure."
"Every new version has got some tweaks and improvements in stability and speed."
"Before using Nakivo Backup & Replication, all our data backup processes took a long time and did not optimize the disk space reserved for backup. With the introduction of Nakivo Backup & Replication, saving times have been reduced by almost half (thanks to the use of several simultaneous transporters) and the space occupied has also had a very important reduction."
"The most important feature besides the easy management of the different backup jobs is the automated e-mail notification functionality."
"This product has a very clean and intuitive GUI."
"The backup and replication are great."
"The solution is easy to install and very stable."
"I know it's not exactly a feature, but I accept it works and it's easy to use. With the Veeam Backup & Replication, we have no problems in managing restore. Obviously, the most important thing about backup software. I used to say that every backup software can make backups, but only good ones can make a restore."
"They provide good technical support and we are satisfied with the support we have received."
"Veeam is easy to use."
"Very user-friendly and easily recoverable."
"Veeam Backup Replication has good performance and can do location-to-location backups. Additionally, it is user-friendly and easy to manage."
"This product is user-friendly. The interface is easy to use."
"Veeam Backup & Replication is a great alternative to what is out there. Some of the backups just allow an agent backup to the cloud. You can back up a thousand different ways, but this is a great way to keep a customer and a company in compliance in that they've got their data secure onsite and offsite. The data being transferred to the NAS at the customer's location and also the data being sent to the cloud is encrypted in transit and it's also encrypted at rest so that nobody is going to be able to hack into that. No one will have the keys to do that."
"They need to add a failover feature to the Essential Pro license in case the environment is a simple virtual environment and the client does not need to upgrade."
"The only thing we have encountered that we would like to see improved in the future are error messages. They could be more detailed and helpful, without the need to send logs to support. Failing that, the part of the log related to the error could be displayed alongside the error message, so I can investigate the error without looking through all of those logs that I'm able to download."
"I would like to have a built-in SNMP client, which is important if we want to monitor it using Zabbix, Nagios, or another monitoring solution."
"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."
"It would be interesting if it were possible to integrate a mobile app to monitor the system in real-time."
"There is a familiar error that pops up and that is a VM error as much as it is a Nakivo error. It says that the job couldn't calm the VM and restores might be impacted. That error is, to say the least, a bit scary. I have seen this type of error on other backup systems also."
"The first implementation is a bit difficult but once is up and running is rock solid and extremely easy to manage."
"It would be good to have some Oracle database backup capability from the Linux OS in the next release."
"The ease of use could be improved, but I don't have a very deep amount of experience in Veeam, so it's difficult to say what could be improved."
"They have an integration with MS SQL, and you have to license MS SQL. This is something they need to change. They should go for an open-source database or a free SQL because you're already buying this product, and you shouldn't have to buy another product."
"The replication process is very slow. It takes too long to replicate a virtual machine."
"This is an expensive solution."
"Pricing can be improved."
"Even though the speed has improved over the years, I think that there are some instances where it still takes a while."
"While the Veeam Backup Replication tool can mostly back up all the data in the environment, the AIX from IBM backup capabilities nowadays could stand improvement as they are not featured on a single pane of glass."
"It would be nice if it could be integrated with third-party solutions like ours. It has been supporting just Windows and virtual machines."
