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

Reviewed 2 years ago

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.

Not Rolls Royce but probably Mercedes...

Reviewed 4 months ago

Cheaper than Veeam, better than some other options. The proof is in the recovery! It's more focussed on VMWare than Hyper-V but support for Hyper-V is acceptable. Just be sure you are familiar with the features that are and are not supported for the platform you wish to protect before proceeding. The licensing is quite flexible too, with perpetual and subscription licenses. The cost comparison...

Pros

Easy to set up and get running. Flexible deployment, with the full solution (i.e. the "brain") running directly on supported NAS hardware, Linux OS, physical or virtual machines. Getting help is as easy as clicking "Request Support" on an error message in the WebUI. A support bundle is created and sent to Nakivo and you very quickly receive an email with a case number, followed by responses from real people.

Cons

Better error messages would be nice - they don't always make sense. The "brain", which is the Director component, can only exist in one place in a distributed deployment with different locations. This means that a remote site will not back up if there is a connectivity issue between sites and the Director cannot see the transporter and repositories at the remote site.

Successful Backups for 8 years

Reviewed 4 months ago

We are using NAKIO for about 8 years now for internally and for our customers. The product has evolved over time from a cheap and simple VMware backup solution to a backup suite providing a lot of options and features. We have successfully deployed instances of VMware backup, replication, WAN replication, O365 backup, physical workstation backup, replication to amazon and multi-tenancy.

Pros

They provide great support. Over time when we had issues they always went out of their way to provide satisfactory solutions. It is very easy to setup and use regardless of the size of installation. They still provide an affordable product and I believe you definitely will get your money's worth. There is a lot of active development and not only toward new features, but also in improving stability and performance. They try to get feedback from their userbase when planning for new features.

Cons

We have had problems with file level recovery on large (>1 TB) XFS file systems. Space reclaim of backup repositories is slow, but has been improved recently.

An amazing backup solution

Reviewed 5 months ago

This software allow us to backup our VM and Office 365 data quickly and with reliability. We also sue the replication feature. The best thing, however, is that you can boot from backup directly.

Pros

Possibility to install it Linux, saving Windows licensing cost. Also, the hot add method to backup is quite fast.

Cons

You need to read the documentation beforehand. Once you know how to do things, it's ok.

The best choice

Reviewed 3 years ago
Pros

This software is easy to setup and use. The price is competitive and can be afforded also in very little company or offices (SOHO) assuring security at low cost. The availability of the transporter module with most of NAS system (also SOHO) let the company work also with low cost devices. The option to have a flash VM boot reduces the RTO and the forever incremental backups (very fast) reduces the RPO.

Cons

No availability for Citrix XEN and a full screen interface (the calendar would be more readable).

Perfect backup for small and mid-sized business

Reviewed 3 years ago

Nakivo is simply the best solution for our customers. Of course there are other products out there with more features, but we really don't need them. Pricing and feature set are exactly right for our small and mid-sized customers. For the future we hope, that Nakivo will continue this,

Pros

Easy to deploy software, which is suitable for all of our customers. We like the possibility to run it as a downloadable virtual appliance. So, we always have it running in a few minutes. Starting as a solution for backing up virtual infrastructures (vSphere / Hyper-V), it becomes more and more feature complete. Today it has all featured we need for our customers, including physical backup. We really like controlling the software with command-line and API. Integration with our remote monitoring was simple. Also, the sales team always finds good solutions, when there are tricky licensing request from our customers.

Cons

There are no real cons to mention. Sometimes we wish, that the logs in the UI would tell more details, when it comes to errors. But we always were able to sort it out.

Cost Effective And Brilliant Backup And Replication Strategy

Brilliant solution, cost effective. The product is easy to implement and works just as good as advertised. It surpassed our expectations.

Pros

Easy backups and replications that help keep us safe and secure! Ability to store locally and in cloud is a plus

Cons

I would like to see more cloud integration with companies like BackBlaze and their B2 storage offerings. Amazon and Wasabi are partner groups, and that is more than enough to work with until then!

Good and intuitive procduct

Reviewed 8 days ago

We are using Nakivo B&R for our new server with quite a number of virtual machines (VM Ware). Backup of data is onto a Synology via 10GB/s. The backup makes use of all available network speed. Once you understand how it works, its configuration is straight forward. Whenever we experienced some issues, Nakivo Service was very helpful (GoTo meeting) and pretty fast (next day at the latest). So far no complaints on their repsonse.

Pros

Quite intuitive. Comparably fast backup. Price / performance value is good. Good service.

Cons

USB rotation (to external harddrives) definitely needs improvement. Licensing scheme is a bit hard to understand at first glance ... but their sales will help you ;-) A little bit of too aggressive marketing (less would be better).

NAKIVO rivals VEEM and others. We say NAKIVO wins

Reviewed 2 years ago

We were introduced to NAKIVO 2 years ago when we were searching for a lower cost entry point for virtualization backup. we were pleasantly surprised with the NAKIVO product. Since then, the NAKIVO features have grown and we regularly find ourselves recommending our clients move from their current solutions like VEEM and Symantec vault, to NAKIVO saving a ton of money and giving a much easier to use interface to the end users. We highly recommend NAKIVO to our clients and recommend you take a moment to review as well Michael Stokes, CTO stokesTechnologies, inc.

Pros

same end results as using more expensive products like VEEM, price point significantly less, and the user interface much easier to understand. Flexible integration with other storage devices and operating systems

Cons

they are continuing to add more features rivaling the bigger companies. I say they're just about there and I don't really have a negative thing to say about the product

Excellent virtual machine backups

Reviewed a year ago

With regular backup software there is a significant amount of time needed in case of disaster (hardware). With NAKIVO you can replace the hardware and get up and running pretty quickly.

Pros

I have installed NAKIVO on both Synology NAS and as a virtual appliance. Setup and configuring is very easy. I only use it with VMware virtual machines. With a paid license for VMware NAKIVO makes the needed config changes automatically. If the VMware free editions you need to do it yourself (VMware limitation), but it's still easy. Backup, Restore, Disaster recovery all work great! The subscription license if very affordable. In case of hardware problems you can get up and running very quickly.

Cons

I really don't have any major issues with NAKIVO I don't like. Some minor issues I didn't really like the web interface were all changed with a recent release.
