Nakivo Pros

Rahim Khasiyev - PeerSpot reviewer
Founder at CAE LLC
Nakivo's reporting features have helped a lot. They give my boss high visibility into what's going on, which is crucial because we had a data breach in the past where we lost about 12 years of data. That's why we bought several appliances, and we replicate the same backup twice a day to three different depositories.

It uses all the bandwidth available if not limited and backs up entire servers with all data about four times faster than Windows Server Backup and EaseUS TODO Backup.

Cloud integration is valuable because the ability to not only backup locally, but to the cloud, has been a great addition to the already fantastic product.

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).

I could install and configure the trial version in maybe half an hour and had a successful backup of our file server on the same night.

The speed of the backups and replications is fantastic and, for the most part, the simplicity of use has been wonderful.

This enables us to do quick granular file recovery as and when required but also to do whole-site relocation in the case of a total loss scenario.

Nakivo Cons

Rahim Khasiyev - PeerSpot reviewer
Founder at CAE LLC
When you schedule some jobs, you should be able to see a list of the jobs contained within each. You have to open up the editor to see what is inside. You must click through and edit stuff. Each time, it asks you to save or discard changes. It's very annoying. You only see the name of the scheduled job, and you need to edit it to see what's it's inside.

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.

I would love to see BackBlaze B2 implementation in the future, as that would be our preferred cloud destination, but Amazon and Wasabi are both very great choices in the meantime.

Due to the fact that we are HP and Fugit partners as well, it would be nice if Nakivo would allow support for HP and Fugit storage.

Personally, I would like to have the ability to backup older legacy systems on the new versions as well.

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.

Right now we know that Nakivo has the ability to back up as an incremental process and restore backups across several criteria. However, it would be good if we had the ability to backup a system like PostgreSQL.

My first thought was maybe the GUI could be improved, although it works.
