How has it helped my organization?

Nakivo is a cheap backup solution and at the level of technology in comparison with Veeam plays well. Now my company has activated just the trial.

What needs improvement?

I think the product should be improved on the integrations — for example, integration with HPE StoreOnce.

What's my experience with pricing, setup cost, and licensing?

I advise making the product setup easier, for pricing because it is very cheap and for licensing.

If you previously used a different solution, which one did you use and why did you switch?

Now my company offers another solution: Veeam. Nakivo is cheaper, but it's a good solution for PMI.

If you previously used a different solution, which one did you use and why did you switch?

We are in the process of switching for two main reasons: * Reducing costs. * Improving backups by not having to install clients on each VM.

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 suggest downloading a trial copy from the website and take it for a spin. It has straightforward licensing.

If you previously used a different solution, which one did you use and why did you switch?

Nakivo Questions

Nakivo Projects By Members

What is Nakivo?

NAKIVO Backup & Replication provides image-based, application-aware, and forever-incremental backup for VMware, Hyper-V, and AWS EC2 VMs. This means that NAKIVO Backup & Replication can capture all VM data, ensure the  consistency of applications and databases (such as Exchange, Active Directory, MS SQL, SharePoint) running in VMs, and transfer only changes to the backup repository. NAKIVO Backup & Replication uses native change tracking
technologies (VMware CBT/Hyper-V RCT) to instantly identify changed data. For each VM backup, you can save up to 1,000 recovery points and rotate them on a daily, weekly, monthly, and yearly basis.
