Nakivo Review

Easy to configure and the policy-based replication suits our environment well


What is our primary use case?

We have a VMware environment that needed backup and replication. We run NAKIVO on a Synology NAS and replicate to another VMware Server.

How has it helped my organization?

This solution was surprisingly easy to configure. It has a much higher bang for the buck than other products we evaluated. The replication is very fast.

What is most valuable?

The most valuable feature for us is policy based replication, which lets you add a VMware Virtual Server and NAKIVO will automatically back it up provided that it fits the policy.

What needs improvement?

An improvement would be to give us more control over the email alerts, with different emails going to different addresses based on a set of rules.

For how long have I used the solution?

Less than one year.

If you previously used a different solution, which one did you use and why did you switch?

We used Xackup with XenServer prior to this.

How was the initial setup?

I found that this solution was surprisingly easy to configure.

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

I suggest downloading a trial copy from the website and take it for a spin. It has straightforward licensing.

Which other solutions did I evaluate?

We also evaluated Veeam Backup & Replication.
