Nakivo Review

Instantly recovers entire VMs, individual files, or application objects, but integrations should be added

What is our primary use case?

My company wants to evaluate Nakivo to offer a primary backup solution to our customers because it looks easy to implement and to use.

How has it helped my organization?

Nakivo is a cheap backup solution and at the level of technology in comparison with Veeam plays well. Now my company has activated just the trial.

What is most valuable?

  • Deployable in one minute
  • Instantly recovers entire VMs, individual files, or application objects (Microsoft Exchange, SQL Server, and Active Directory)
  • Save storage space with swap data exclusion, global data deduplication, and built-in compression.

What needs improvement?

I think the product should be improved on the integrations — for example, integration with HPE StoreOnce.

For how long have I used the solution?

Trial/evaluations only.

What do I think about the stability of the solution?

I think that it's stable.

What do I think about the scalability of the solution?

I have no impressions of the scalability.

How are customer service and technical support?


Which solution did I use previously and why did I switch?

Now my company offers another solution: Veeam. Nakivo is cheaper, but it's a good solution for PMI.

How was the initial setup?

The initial setup was easy, not complex.

What about the implementation team?


What was our ROI?


What's my experience with pricing, setup cost, and licensing?

I advise making the product setup easier, for pricing because it is very cheap and for licensing.

Which other solutions did I evaluate?

No, I didn't.
