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.

Combined with RecoverPoint, it offers zero RPO and zero RTO.It made the DR process a lot faster and easier for recovery after we were familiar with the product operation.

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.‚Äč

I would like to see better integration with other storage solutions. I would hope to see that within the next two or three years.One thing which is lacking from the SRM is reporting.SRM may hit some OS issues related to IP changes, but they are usually OS related, especially in the 2008 realm.

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.
