Comparison Summary
Question: How does Nakivo compare with Veeam Backup & Replication
Answer: Nakivo is my favorite backup software. Below are the main benefits of Nakivo compared to Veeam 1. Low cost. 2. Backup storage with global deduplication (this is the main requirement of a backup solution. For Veeam, you need to pay for additional deduplication storage). 3. NAS appliance plugin (the backup solution can be fit on one NAS box storage. No need for any backup server). 4. The backup server resource requirement is too small. 5. No Windows license needed. Nakivo can be deployed via a provided Linux appliance/Linux-native installation. Wira.

Pros
"This product has helped to centralize backups and made it easy to recover data.""The features that I have found most valuable are that it is a cheaper price and user-friendly.""It is affordable.""Most valuable for DimenXional Cloud is the API provided by Nakivo which allows us to implement the software in all types of solutions.""Every new version has got some tweaks and improvements in stability and speed.""NAKIVO is easy to use and pretty easy to set up.""We have found all the features of Nakivo to be useful and the solution is easier to use compared to Proxmox. It is user-friendly, we are very satisfied.""The initial setup is very straightforward."

"Provides lots of reporting and visualization of how much data has been transferred.""The product is very simple in its design. We don't need it to perform complicated tasks.""The solution is easy to use and have good performance.""The most valuable features of Veeam Backup Replication are efficient backup and replication. Additionally, Veeam Backup Replication supports all products and vendors.""I have found the backup call feature very good.""The initial setup was not overly complex.""It is a straightforward solution.

Cons
"In terms of what could be improved for the next release, I would probably answer better documentation and licensing models.""At the moment I am pleased with what Nakivo does but I would like more reporting functions and if possible, integration with my RMM system.""There is a lack of native (web-based) update functionality.""The interface can be a little clunky at times.""From our experience, the main factor that could be improved is adding more cloud services that are supported as a backup repository.""My first thought was maybe the GUI could be improved, although it works.""The interface might be improved, but the interface of every product might be improved.""The first implementation is a bit difficult but once is up and running is rock solid and extremely easy to manage."

More Nakivo Cons →

"Additional executive summary reports for the entire infrastructure would be a nice to have.""Veeam Backup Replication could improve by having better integration with the cloud. Additionally, they do not have direct integration to S3 or Azure storage for the backups of the VMs. This feature would be beneficial because we have to go through the scalable repository which I do not like.""If they could add more support for all of the modern hypervisors, that would make Veeam much better and more flexible to work with. For example, there is no solution for VM to VM replication when it comes to Oracle OEM servers.""We would like to see support for some additional storage systems.""I would like a solution for SAP systems to be included.""Its price is higher than other solutions and can be improved. They can also change the version of the software more often.""I think that Veeam could improve some performance issues when the backup itself is restored. I'm also using HPE StoreOnce, which has deduplication, and when I'm trying to test or run backups, it takes a lot of time. I think they could improve the testing for backup copies.""The patching can be quite difficult at times."

    The functionalities are almost the same. Nakivo is available at a lower price.


    If you don't need advanced storage integration there is no difference.

    Nakivo offer almost the same functionality of Veeam at a lower price.

    They have the same functionality except that Nakivo allows the backups to be immutable, thus, providing protection against malware (backups cannot be moved, deleted or changed) It has 1/3 of the price but sometimes there is a direct deal.

    For me, Nakivo has all Veeam features and also supports Oracle RMAN backup. 


    Nakivo has a very flexible deployment compared with Veeam (it supports the deployment using Windows and SQL only). It can be installed on NAS, VA, and many more. Most of the things have a reasonable price.
