We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use. Here are some excerpts of what they said:
"It is a point-in-time restore, which is quite handy."
"The installation is straightforward if the version you have is compatible with your infrastructure."
"The solution is quite stable. We haven't experienced any kind of bug or glitch. We haven't experienced crashes."
"Continuous replication with lower RTO and RPO is the most innovative feature. Its tight integration with VMware for VMware VMs is also valuable."
"The most valuable feature is that it is journal-based and you don't have to replicate a lot of data."
"The product is very scalable, robust, has an easy setup with a short-duration deployment and good technical support."
"The speed of the backups and replications is fantastic and, for the most part, the simplicity of use has been wonderful."
"The most important feature besides the easy management of the different backup jobs is the automated e-mail notification functionality."
"The chat functionality with Nakivo Support in the web interface is very unique and we love it."
"This product has helped to centralize backups and made it easy to recover data."
"The most valuable feature is the ease of creating a backup copy job to get the backups to a second device."
"I could install and configure the trial version in maybe half an hour and had a successful backup of our file server on the same night."
"It is easy to set up using the included virtual appliance and also includes agents for most NAS systems."
"The solution is not easy to use. It's actually quite hard. If it could be simplified it might be better for the end user."
"I would like to have the HTML 5 interface working because it is currently not functioning with the VMware environment."
"In the next release of this software, I would like to see options that help to decrease the bandwidth required, such as compressing the data."
"The solution could improve by being more easier to use. However, once you have used it for a while it becomes easier. Additionally, there could be better support and compatibility with management by having a command-line interface. This would be beneficial for the customers."
"It can have better integration. It would be good if, in addition to VMware VM, it can also support other hypervisors. I also want to see support for Oracle databases. As of now, it supports only SQL and Exchange. It would be good to also support other databases."
"At the moment I am pleased with what Nakivo does but I would like more reporting functions and if possible, integration with my RMM system."
"An additional feature that would be appreciated is disaster recovery automation."
"My first thought was maybe the GUI could be improved, although it works."
"It would be interesting if it were possible to integrate a mobile app to monitor the system in real-time."
"The interface can be a little clunky at times."
"The first implementation is a bit difficult but once is up and running is rock solid and extremely easy to manage."
"The only thing we have encountered that we would like to see improved in the future are error messages. They could be more detailed and helpful, without the need to send logs to support. Failing that, the part of the log related to the error could be displayed alongside the error message, so I can investigate the error without looking through all of those logs that I'm able to download."
"Updating VM Tools on a replicated VM could be better."
"This is an expensive product."
"There is a license required for this solution and the pricing depends on how many virtual machines you have."
"This is not a very cheap solution and compared to others, it is expensive."
"Pricing-wise, it is pretty much fair for any customer who only has a VMware environment. Licensing is based on the number of VMs that you want to protect at any given point in time. Licensing is not based on size."
"Cost is very appropriate for SMEs."
"As a free solution for a small environment, this is a great solution!"
"It has a very good price in the market."
"This product provides good value for the price."
"Regarding the licensing, I would advise speaking to the Nakivo representatives and you can get the best option for your environment."
"Nakivo has a good price-performance ratio."
"The licensing model is very affordable compared to competitors, with a good quality-to-cost ratio, and the software is quite simple and fast to setup."
"From the perspective of Indian users, the cost is a little bit high."
