Pros
It is fast, simple, powerful, and has a price without competition.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.Perfect for someone who doesn't want to waste time.We spend less time to get data recovered.Creating a backup task in NAKIVO is fast and easy.This solution was surprisingly easy to configure.The ability to restore in a catastrophic event is priceless, since every company must use a backup solution of some sort.We are able to take backups on a regular interval and restore data/VMs as we choose making the process work as advertised.

The most valuable feature is the instant restore option.The user interface is good.What I find most valuable about this solution, is that the user experience is very simple.The technical support is good.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 solution is very user-friendly and has an easy to use interface. We can manage it easily. It allows for a simple backup.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.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.

Cons
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.​

We are currently waiting for the continuous backup process.I would like to be able to install Veeam directly to Linux instead of having to go through a Windows server.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.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 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's scalable, but it's not scalable on every platform.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 could use deduplication features.

Pricing and Cost Advice
I advise that this is the best product for medium or small environments according to my cost-benefit analysis.Pricing is easy to understand and very affordable.It's really cheap, and our company saves a significant amount of money on IT backup solutions per year.The price is not a problem in NAKIVO, as it is the most competitive in the market.It has a much higher bang for the buck than other products we evaluated.

The costing is very competitive.The solution is rather expensive and I think the price is too high.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.Licensing costs are $300,000 USD yearly, and we pay for three years at a time.
