A beautifully engineered solution that doesn't assume everyone uses Windows

It's as close to bullet proof as we've seen. Our backups run nightly and on the occasion when we need to restore, there are some very flexible ways of getting either individual files, VMDKs or entire VMs out the other end. We have yet to try out the non-VM backup but we suspect that at some point we will throw that out and move it all to Nakivo.

Pros

It's an elegant combination of Java and Linux with a straightforward web-based interface and it never lets us down. We feel completely comfortable with Nakivo protecting our backups and best of all, it means we don't have to install a load of Windows-based systems that we don't want or need just to run it.

Cons

It's not cheap. It does work out slightly more cost effective than Veeam, and the saving of effort and hassle of it being Linux-based was enough justification for us to buy it in the end.

Reasons for Choosing NAKIVO Backup & Replication

The fact that it doesn't depend upon Windows and it is very slightly cheaper.

Nakivo "The backbone to our virtualization infrastructure DR+BC Playbook.

From sales to support, the attention has been top-notch. Very attentive and quick to respond with quotes and resolutions. The application performance has exceeded our previous backup systems.

Pros

Rapid deployment: We use Synology NAS devices for backups. The ability to deploy the app directly on the NAS itself was a big win for us. We reduced the load on our hypervisors and have everything needed for recovery on one device.

Cons

A web UI refresh would be nice but that is just a matter of personal preference. A mobile app would be great.

Reasons for Choosing NAKIVO Backup & Replication

Sales and support were quick to respond and the product documentation was clear and precise. The demo was excellent. POC passed.

Reasons for Switching to NAKIVO Backup & Replication

No web functionality. Windows only. Slow and prone to errors with jobs failing.

NAKIVO Backup & Replication

I use Nakivo for backup and replication process in my datacenters. The software is very stable, easy to configure, with a great price.

Pros

The system is easy to use and easy to implement. Backup jobs are easy to set up and have a large amount of options. Price is very attractive. Very appreciate the possibility to install directly on NAS appliance (Qnap in my case)

Cons

Missing support for EMC Unity storage appliance

Reasons for Switching to NAKIVO Backup & Replication

Almost the same functionality at a lower price
