Quotes From Members
We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use.
Here are some excerpts of what they said:
Pros
"The upgrade process is manual but very simple to do.""The solution has a user-friendly interface and is easy to configure.""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.""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 product is very scalable, robust, has an easy setup with a short-duration deployment and good technical support.""Nakivo offers direct support through the graphical interface and this is great to have if you need quick help.""They reply immediately to any query raised from us as a technician or consultant and they know the pulse of the market and keep updating the features in such a big way.""Technical support responds very quickly."

Cons
"Log and report creation can be improved.""In the loading of a backup, choosing what to restore seems to be a lengthy process, but it has always worked in my restore tests.""One of the things I liked least about this software is when an update was pushed to one of the servers we had, somehow we didn't receive the update and needed some quick troubleshooting.""What must be improved is the response time to technical support requests.""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.""More statistic options would be a great feature.""My first thought was maybe the GUI could be improved, although it works.""It would be great if they had a Let's Encrypt integration."

More Nakivo Cons →

"It would be ideal if they added advanced analytics or AI to the solution.""The automation should be simplified or improved.""VMware Cloud Disaster Recovery could improve by enhancing the network bandwidth from the storage."

    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.

    Datrium Disaster Recovery as a Service (DRaaS) with VMware Cloud on AWS is transforming DR with its cloud-native design, built-in backup, instant RTO, and on-demand model. It’s liberating IT from the complexity of legacy DR approaches and standalone backup tools.
