Cons
The support for Office365 backup is atrocious and is something that has to be improved.The user interface is a little bit confusing and it could be better.

I would like to have the option of creating a subfolder per job in the backup repository because we had an issue where some files were corrupted and we lost the backup of the majority of the VMs.We want the backup job to consume fewer resources, as the utilization is very high if we choose the best compression.It is missing the file and folder backup; however, this product is meant for virtual machine backup and recovery, so that is really outside of the scope of the software.An improvement would be to include a general data backup solution that is not only for virtual machines.I think it is important to work not only in replicating the virtual machines in Amazon AWS, but in other cloud systems.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.The upgrade process is a bit dated and could use some changes.UI could use some upgrades. The UI is basic, but functional.‚Äč

Overview

Data is the heart of any organization and backing up this data is a key part of a business strategy. Azure Backup is a scalable solution with zero capital investment and minimal operational expense. With the optional integration with System Center Data Protection Manager, you can protect advanced workloads running in your datacenter in VMs or on physical servers.

NAKIVO Backup & Replication provides image-based, application-aware, and forever-incremental backup for VMware, Hyper-V, and AWS EC2 VMs. This means that NAKIVO Backup & Replication can capture all VM data, ensure the  consistency of applications and databases (such as Exchange, Active Directory, MS SQL, SharePoint) running in VMs, and transfer only changes to the backup repository. NAKIVO Backup & Replication uses native change tracking
technologies (VMware CBT/Hyper-V RCT) to instantly identify changed data. For each VM backup, you can save up to 1,000 recovery points and rotate them on a daily, weekly, monthly, and yearly basis.
