N-able Backup

Solarwinds Backup is ideal for individuals looking to keep a consistent backup of devices in their environment. We used it primarily for networking equipment. It is easy to set up, as it is one of the steps available when adding a new device to solarwinds. It is probably not an ideal product to use for long-term (1 month+) backups.

NAKIVO Backup & Replication

[An] excellent solution to backup VMs, even across multiple data centers. Easy to use, quick to navigate, and able to bandwidth throttle, ensuring that our business traffic is not affected. [Cost-effective] solution and support go above and beyond. We are very happy with this solution. Thank you NAKIVO!! Well done.

Pros

N-able Backup

  • Backup Reporting: Email alerts, and a great, easy to read Dashboard with detailed error logs and an easy to search Solarwinds FAQ for a lot of them.
  • Restores: So far I have restored files, full VMs, and VMs to other hardware, and so far it has not only been flawless, but so flexible that I can't imagine going back to any other software.

NAKIVO Backup & Replication

  • 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.
Clyde Wynter | TrustRadius Reviewer

Cons

N-able Backup

  • Restore complete settings: IP settings, the setting of CPU/Memory for VMs, etc. would decrease management during a restore.
  • Individual file backup: more granular settings for backup.
  • Change of device name after setup: at times, computer names change after restore so it would be great to rename the device name.
  • Option to recovery security key.

NAKIVO Backup & Replication

  • Reporting could use some work. I think there is a calendar feature but it's not available given our current license level. I think this should come standard.
  • We've had corrupted backup issues in the past and had to reach out to support. They are the only ones who can fix the built-in backup DB problem. It would be nice if there was a way for the end-user to do it without having to get support involved.

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.

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.

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.

Configuring a dedicated Nakivo backup server with local storage and additional Linux NAS storage units for immutability is key. Backed-up data is only useful if it can be restored.

Alternatives Considered

N-able Backup

Works well. Easy to use. If you use Ncentral, it's already tied in and even easier to deploy. Cloud storage is more expensive than competitors. There is no easy option to offload your backups to AWS, etc. It can create a local speed vault to have local backups as well. data recovery works better than any other product I have used.

NAKIVO Backup & Replication

Nakivo seemed more "solid" than Iperius Backup (even if we use it for tiny customers), was more affordable than Acronis and our partner had been using it for a while and was very satisfied.

The licensing is complex and not easy to understand at first. As you can use very small installations with one socket up to hundreds that can not be easily explained of course. This is the only thing I would like changed on NAKIVO's end.

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.

Return on Investment

N-able Backup

  • There has been NO negative impact to out ROI, but it definitely helps our bottom line. Affordable pricing and solid support make Solarwinds Backup almost a no brainer. That interprets to a growing ROI.
  • The best thing to happen to our ROI is the growth brought in by very happy clients.
Marc Shaffer | TrustRadius Reviewer

NAKIVO Backup & Replication

  • NAKIVO only costs a fraction of many other backup solutions.
  • After the initial setup, I've had to spend very little time on the maintenance of NAKIVO. That's freed me up to work on other projects.
  • We were able to leverage pre-existing storage to save the cost of using a cloud service.
