There is a cost involved with data retrieval. AWS Backup is truly that, a backup. If you need to access this data on a regular basis, there are better options out there. For long term, just in case incremental backups, AWS [Backup] checks all the boxes. Just set it up, start your backups, and rest assured your data is safe.

If you are using VM is it the perfect solution at an affordable cost. I moved to NAKIVO Backup & Replication after my last backup software was charging me above affordable prices. It was a cheap and stable solution for us. It has covered all our needs. The restore has been tested, and it works without any issues. This product is suited for companies that have a small budget and want to keep all their data safe.

Pros

Amazon AWS

  • Backups - it's what it does.
Read full review

Nakivo Inc.

  • Frequent backups do not affect the server load especially when the store is based on a high-performance NAS. We use OMV and average a GB per Minute per backup.
  • Offsite backups to a hosted store on AWS or Wsabi is simple.
  • VM replication is simple to set up.
  • Backup compression and encryption is excellent.

Cons

Amazon AWS

  • Not so easy to use
  • A little pricey
  • The backup is in the cloud; make sure to keep an offline backup (the problem of all of this kind of solution)

  • transponder updates, We've had one problem over 4 years with the update just a single machine doesn't like to be auto-updated. All other nodes/transporters/transponders work perfectly.
  • If a backup is failing constantly, and it's set up send an email out every time it fails if it tries once an hour. This should be modified so I don't get spammed overnight with failing backups.
  • Auto-update transporters without my intervention once a stable build is out and has been tested elsewhere

Because it is a product that I have been using for many years, it is becoming easier to use, and it also includes more and more things that you might need.

Usability

Very easy to use and is as plug and play as you can get. There are configuration options for multiple schemas that best fits your organization.

Wherever NAKIVO runs (as a dedicated VM, an application on NAS, as an installed service) you get a concise Web interface through encrypted communication. One is able to check and monitor the backups quickly and in detail, if needed. Notifications, Warnings, and Alarms are grouped and bundled so that you can work with them promptly.

Support for AWS Backup is by Amazon itself so it is solid as always. If you have a business or higher level support plan you'll have no trouble getting engineers or other staff on the job to help you with whatever comes up.

The support is fast and perfect. If u have any questions, you can contact the support team via mail or chat and you always get a fast answer. You can also find a lot of help in the FAQ in the help center to resolve your problems. Anytime I had to contact the support, they helped me and solved my problem.

It is very easy to do in all the formats in which it is implemented, whether as an appliance, in a windows machine, or an implementation in NAS. I only use the appliance one, but I have tried all of them in trial mode to know which one interested me more.

Alternatives Considered

Amazon AWS

Being an AWS service, AWS Backup integrates in a native way with other AWS services, providing an easy way to backup those services. Being able to create separate backup plans that meet specific business and regulatory compliance requirements provides us with capabilities to face auditing processes.

Both are good backup and replication software but NAKIVO Backup & Replication is more intuitive and easy to use. We choose NAKIVO Backup & Replication because we could install it in a Synology NAS. With NAKIVO Backup & Replication, we have unified several small NAS into one. As well, a trusted partner recommended us NAKIVO Backup & Replication because he use it in many customers with very good results.

Our customer has a small infrastructure, so we could make good use of the "one-shot" Nakivo license. Our customer does not need to pay a fee every year (although you are requested to pay a subscription in order to have updates and support, that is only fair) and we could grant them a top-notch product.

I contacted a few times Nakivo representatives, once for technical doubt and the other ones for commercial ones. Both support services are fast and reliable.

  • Great integration with all my hardware, firewall and backup software was great.
  • Being able to network path my files like a native drive to my computer from the cloud made the designer not complain so much able learning new stuff.
