Quotes From Members
We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use.
Here are some excerpts of what they said:
Pros
"It is easy to manage all of the individual backup jobs, check the status every day, and it can even send an email to keep us informed.""The upgrade process is manual but very simple to do.""With Nakivo, I have the peace of mind that all of my production environment is safely backed up and can be restored safely, easily, and quickly with a few clicks.""This product has a very clean and intuitive GUI.""The ability to use a variety of cloud providers rather than being tied into one is a huge bonus.""It is easy to set up using the included virtual appliance and also includes agents for most NAS systems.""We really appreciate the simplicity of the solution.""The backup for physical machines and replication for the virtual environment are the most valuable aspects."

More Nakivo Pros →

"It is a good solution. It covers most of the applications.""The deduplication feature is useful. Deduplication and compression features are what I like about NetBackup.""The product is stable and reliable.""Great deduplication feature.""There's a very nice central console for the administration of all of the instances.""Deduplication is quite efficient. It is not a complex product. It is quite simple.""I have found the Media Server Deduplication tool, deployment policies, and agentless features to be the most valuable features.""It's durable — we achieve what we expect from it."

Cons
"It would be good if I could have a remote upgrade of our Synology Transporters, but the manual upgrade is easy and no problem at all.""Nakivo's implementation documentation could use a little beefing up.""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.""It would be interesting if it were possible to integrate a mobile app to monitor the system in real-time.""From our experience, the main factor that could be improved is adding more cloud services that are supported as a backup repository.""It would be helpful to be able to have a custom footprint so that only the required features are installed.""My first thought was maybe the GUI could be improved, although it works.""The interface can be a little clunky at times."

More Nakivo Cons →

"The solution costs too much.""The solution could improve by having a feature to backup iSeries workloads.""I also think they could improve the reporting. They use a web-based software application OpsCenter for the reporting and I see that they haven't made any changes in years.""The implementation process could be simplified to make it quicker.""The user interface could improve, it seems a bit out of date.""The deployment time is longer than it is with other products.""The only pain point we have with this solution is the cost. It's very expensive. In fact, it's so expensive we are looking for other platforms. We want to move away from it in order to save our organization costs.""NetBackup's reporting features are a little poor."

    Overview

    NAKIVO Backup & Replication provides image-based, application-aware, and forever-incremental backup for VMware, Hyper-V, and AWS EC2 VMs. This means that NAKIVO Backup & Replication can capture all VM data, ensure the  consistency of applications and databases (such as Exchange, Active Directory, MS SQL, SharePoint) running in VMs, and transfer only changes to the backup repository. NAKIVO Backup & Replication uses native change tracking technologies (VMware CBT/Hyper-V RCT) to instantly identify changed data. For each VM backup, you can save up to 1,000 recovery points and rotate them on a daily, weekly, monthly, and yearly basis.

    NetBackup reduces the staggering complexity of enterprise data protection, outpaces the relentless growth of the data center, and increases the agility IT needs to transform from traditional cost center to service-oriented business enabler. Enterprises trust Symantec.
