Arcserve Backup

Arcserve UDP is fully suited for small to large size environments that need complete data protection solutions with the ability to run the fastest backups, replications, instant VM and DR.

NAKIVO Backup & Replication

It is fantastic for small to medium-sized businesses. It might be a challenge to use it in a large enterprise as I'm not sure the interface has enough granular security, although I do not have experience with NAKIVO in that type of environment. On the other hand, NAKIVO can scale in the form of multiple transporter servers and backup targets to distribute the load.

NAKIVO Backup & Replication

  • Easy to implement and flexible, Nakivo can run on Windows systems, as a virtual appliance on VMware or as an app on your Synology NAS.
  • Very robust- in more than two years since using it we did not have any failed backups related to the product itself.

Cons

Arcserve Backup

  • 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.
Rob Bates profile photo

NAKIVO Backup & Replication

  • You can only backup virtual machines.
  • Although you can easily set up NAKIVO, the more specific or complex your configuration, the more reliant you become on tech support. Knowing Linux would be a big plus with these types of configurations.
  • Updating the software could be a little more user-friendly.

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.

It's great. It works, it's cost effective and it's easy to maintain. I don't see us ever changing away from Nakivo Backup and Replication to any other product. We are very impressed and satisfied with the results.

Arcserve Backup support is usually very good. Their chat is usually able to fix most general issues, but will escalate more in depth issues to technical engineers that call you back. Their product knowledge is really good and usually resolve issues promptly.

As with any support, it can always improve, but since the result has always been getting my issue resolved quickly I can't complain. Nakivo support has been great to work with when I have needed them, which hasn't been often.

Alternatives Considered

Arcserve Backup

We use Veeam Backup and Replication at our larger sites where Vmware Virtualization is being used and is our product of choice in this venue. When it comes to our smaller sites, nothing is more affordable and reliable than Arcserve Backup.

NAKIVO Backup & Replication

NAKIVO is far more reliable than Unitrends, and the support is far better. Veeam is super difficult to configure properly and while it does like everything, it doesn't do anything very well. Nakivo also seems to transfer data faster than both of these.

Return on Investment

Arcserve Backup

  • 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.

NAKIVO Backup & Replication

  • Provides a robust service at an affordable cost.
  • Intuitive web interface along with the technology itself provides a path for quick, easy restores.
  • Not supporting S3 compatible storage for off-site storage of backups has required us to add an additional piece of software to the workflow.
