Cloud integration is valuable because the ability to not only backup locally, but to the cloud, has been a great addition to the already fantastic product.

This enables us to do quick granular file recovery as and when required but also to do whole-site relocation in the case of a total loss scenario.

It is easy to manage all of the individual backup jobs, check the status every day, and it can even send an email to keep us informed.

Before using Nakivo Backup & Replication, all our data backup processes took a long time and did not optimize the disk space reserved for backup. With the introduction of Nakivo Backup & Replication, saving times have been reduced by almost half (thanks to the use of several simultaneous transporters) and the space occupied has also had a very important reduction.

For my purpose, I find VM Backup to be the most useful, as it gives me the ability to create image-based, incremental backups of VMware, Hyper-V, and Nutanix AHV VMs.

The main advantage from our perspective is the ability to plug this solution into an existing infrastructure on a cheap device and point the backup at the server targets and configure the backup options in a simple menu; linking to a cheap cloud resource for a simple solution for off-site storage.

The most valuable feature is the support, as it is directly from Nakivo and it is possible to send a support request that contains all of the technical data on the environment, as well as the software, required for the answer.

I would love to see BackBlaze B2 implementation in the future, as that would be our preferred cloud destination, but Amazon and Wasabi are both very great choices in the meantime.

My first thought was maybe the GUI could be improved, although it works.

Automatic updates do not work, and every update has to be done manually.

I would like to have a built-in SNMP client, which is important if we want to monitor it using Zabbix, Nagios, or another monitoring solution.

In the press releases, it would be useful to make sure that the manual space reclaim procedure does not have to be performed but that it happens automatically, thus optimizing the use of space.

In the future, it would be nice to have support for Zimbra email, Collabora Office, and the NextCloud content collaboration platform.

I had to manually install SNMP, which wasn't hard, but a step I had to take, to plug this into the monitoring system.

It would be helpful to be able to have a custom footprint so that only the required features are installed.

From our experience, the main factor that could be improved is adding more cloud services that are supported as a backup repository.
