Nakivo Room for Improvement

Senior Software Manager/Chief at a tech services company with 10,001+ employees
I do not know that I see a lot that needs to be improved with Nakivo. It seems maybe that the interface could be a little bit better, but it is what it is. You can always improve on the interface on anything. For me, I just work with the product in a simple way. For instance, I have not even looked into whether you can hook it up with Active Directory which may be helpful if you are going to add different users and give them the capability to back up or do certain other tasks. You might be able to do that already now. I just have not had the need or opportunity to look into it. If it is not there it is the type of thing that might be added. View full review »

The software is aimed at backing up VM images but it would be nice to have an option to just backup certain files/folders and not the entire disk. View full review »

It would be interesting if it were possible to integrate a mobile app to monitor the system in real-time. View full review »

I think it is important to work not only in replicating the virtual machines in Amazon AWS but in other cloud systems. I want to have replicas in the cloud at a more competitive cost. View full review »

What must be improved is the response time to technical support requests. View full review »

While the solution provides mostly what we need, it would be ideal if there were some additional feature capabilities for the API. I can't really specify which features are missing, as they've done everything that we've asked for so far. Our plate is full of getting what they've done into the marketplace. It's going to take us another two, three months to do that, including engineering work and testing and that type of stuff. I wouldn't be able to answer the question of if there are missing features for at least another three to six months. View full review »

While many useful cloud-based improvements and enhancements are added with each release, we would like the ability to do raw metal restores from bootable media. Using an independent bootable media to restore full physical machines would enable physical machines that may be serving as Nakivo Director or Transport machines to be reliably restored to service without undue delay, ensuring that an enterprise's local environment remains intact.

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. I would like a clearer log of errors. I enabled the schedule for space reclamation on the repository, but after one day I found that the repository was detached and the GUI didn’t give a status of the scheduled task. View full review »
We want the backup job to consume fewer resources, as the utilization is very high if we choose the "best compression' option. There was a problem we found regarding the repostory. When we enable the schedule for space reclaimation, once the schedule is trigerred the reclaimation will detach the repository but after 1 week we found that the repository is on detach status so we should detach it manuallu. We didn't know actually the reclaimation is on progress or already finsihed View full review »
I like how it is, and I don't think it needs improvements. In your next release, you might want to include the different types of AWS backups that are included with Nakivo. View full review »
An improvement would be to include a general data backup solution that is not only for virtual machines. Translate and develop the user interface in other languages like Spanish, Catalan, Basque, etc. View full review »

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

We are satisfied with Nakivo, but if anything could be improved, I think it would be more real-time as opposed to email support availability. View full review »

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. View full review »
