NAKIVO Backup & Replication

Nakivo is well suited for the SMB environment where budgets are a huge concern. Nakivo is cost effective and budget conscience. Nakivo works well with either Microsoft Hyper-V or VMWare's ESXi/vCenter offerings. I would not hesitate to recommend Nakivo to other colleagues that need a backup product that works extremely well and doesn't break the bank.

Cons

  • Has a steep learning curve to the product, if not experienced in backup solutions.
  • Windows backup and restore functionality is excellent, however, we have found Linux somewhat lacking.

  • I cant think of something missing right now. Minor tweaks that it will be nice to have in 7.2 are already Incorporated in 7.3.

Arcserve UDP provides our organization lots of benefits and it is much more than a simple backup and restore solution. We use it for cross platform DR, storage agnostic replications, DR solution instead of VMware SRM and more.

Alternatives Considered

To be succinct, we have used Veeam B&R for a number of years, against our VM environment, and we have yet to find anything that tops it. However, if you have physical machines in your environment still, then Arcserve is a great option, especially for the replication aspect.
Backup Exec has fallen behind the pack since we used it a number of years ago and changes to the platform have severely weakened the product. Arcserve sits above Backup Exec.
Druva we have just started using, mainly for our laptops, but they do have a cloud-based backup solution that we looked at.

  • More reliable/stable.
  • Fast and useful support.
  • Easy to install an maintain.
  • Zero impact on current environment thanks to the possibility to create a back-up appliance with a dedicated NAS.
  • Very good deduplication.

Return on Investment

  • Deploying Arcserve UDP with the "copy-to-tape" option allowed us to reuse well over 50 LTO5 tapes used by our previous backup solution. Further, we extended data retention on site (maintaining monthly backups on disk) as well as extending off site data retention on tape.

  • Positive --> Zero impact on our current virtual environment, resources that can now been used elsewhere
