We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use. Here are some excerpts of what they said:

Pros
"This solution was surprisingly easy to configure.""Creating a backup task in NAKIVO is fast and easy.""We spend less time to get data recovered.""Perfect for someone who doesn't want to waste time.""Nakivo gives users confidence in knowing that if something happens with their application server, exchange server, or other applications, they can recover it easily and quickly.""It is fast, simple, powerful, and has a price without competition.""It is flexible.""It is affordable."

"The Veeam Backup and Replication Suite is very user-friendly.""The ease of use for the graphical interface and the ease of installation are the most valuable features of this solution.""The solution is very simple. Management of the platform is so simple that we don't need to have any training to deploy this solution.""It's most compatible with VMware. It can restore single files instead of having to restore the whole machine, once again leading to savings for the company.""The initial setup was straightforward. It's not complicated. It takes around half an hour to implement, but it depends on the performance of the server that you are installing the backup software on.""The solution is very user-friendly and has an easy to use interface. We can manage it easily. It allows for a simple backup.""The really amazing feature about Veeam Agent is that when you're using the central deployment model, you can actually use the instant VM recovery feature, which is really a pain point that I find some days.""The technical support is good."

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."

"In new releases, I hope they can support Oracle cloud.""It could use deduplication features.""Scalability, if you are talking about Linux, is good. However, if you need to backup more types of solutions or Unix systems, like HP/UX, AIX, etc., it's not compatible.""It's scalable, but it's not scalable on every platform.""In terms of the physical environment, I'd like them to integrate it with other kinds of solutions. We don't just work with Microsoft or Linux, but other kinds of infrastructure data as well.""It would be much better if more applications were supported on the Linux side. For example, their agent for Windows not only can back up the Windows machine, but it can also back up Active Directory for granular restore, SQL servers, Exchange, Oracle, SharePoint, etc. When it comes to Linux, only Oracle databases are supported. There are workarounds, though.""In the next version, I would like to see an increase in the locations online. I have found that other products have good pickup location.""We are currently waiting for the continuous backup process."

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."

"Licensing costs are $300,000 USD yearly, and we pay for three years at a time.""It's a subscription based license, which is started on a yearly basis. Currently the licensing is split between three editions: standard, enterprise, and enterprise plus. As long as you check the comparison between the additions and make sure that you have what you need, there are no extra costs with Veeam.""The solution is rather expensive and I think the price is too high.""The costing is very competitive."
