"It's very helpful because SnapCenter is already integrated with VMware Snapshot, so it's very easy to use."

Cons
"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.""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 include a general data backup solution that is not only for virtual machines.""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.""We want the backup job to consume fewer resources, as the utilization is very high if we choose the best compression.""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.""The interface might be improved, but the interface of every product might be improved.""While the solution provides mostly what we need, it would be ideal if there were some additional feature capabilities for the API."

More Nakivo Cons »

"I have an issue with SnapCenter because sometimes a VM cannot be backed up... The way SnapCenter works is that it makes a backup of all the VMs and then it removes all the old backups. If one VM cannot be backed up for some reason, it has already created a new backup for all the VMs but it cannot remove the old backups. It ends up creating so many backups in VMware and it will cause a performance problem if the condition is not fixed."

Pricing and Cost Advice
"It has a much higher bang for the buck than other products we evaluated.""The price is not a problem in NAKIVO, as it is the most competitive in the market.""It's really cheap, and our company saves a significant amount of money on IT backup solutions per year.""Pricing is easy to understand and very affordable.""I advise that this is the best product for medium or small environments according to my cost-benefit analysis.""You have a lot of different options when it comes to pricing and the pricing models are pretty flexible and affordable.""The product is quite cheap compared to other products on the market, but despite this, it is rich in features both at the level of backup and recovery as well as at the level of additional options.""Nakivo Backup & Replication also have another great value, which is that it is one of the lowest prices on the market."
