NAKIVO Backup & Replication

For our use case the product is good. I am unsure if scaling to a much bigger environment would work as well as some competitor products. Reporting is sufficient in this product, although, as we use it not for our big production environment, we do not have to deal with all the big compliance rules so reporting is more of a technical purpose.

Great for failing hard drives that need to be cloned (like to SSDs) and for moving computer data to dissimilar hardware.
Not great when you're in a hurry and you need to know exactly how long it will take to clone a drive. You would use a different cloning software at that point (Acronis).

Pros

NAKIVO Backup & Replication

  • Creating G-F-S backups of virtual servers in a completely automated fashion.
  • Restoring data easily when needed, either as specific individual files or entire servers (and the run-from-backup option is just neat, although we've rarely had use for that).
  • Storing Data in a de-duplicated, compressed format has allowed us to store many many backups in a space that is many many times smaller than it would take to keep multiple full copies of each server.

  • Clone partitions or entire drives.
  • Change drive from standard to dynamic or dynamic to standard.

Cons

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.

  • If it's installed to a CD it takes forever to boot to it. Better off a USB stick.
  • It takes a very long time to clone a failing drive (understandably) and you have no idea how long it will take. Estimated times are not accurate.

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.

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

NAKIVO Backup & Replication

Altaro offers a competitive price but not VMware support which is our preferred virtualisation product.The Vembu Cloud DR is more expensive to implement, less flexibile (requires a Windows server) and it is a product with a lot of space for improvements, however excellent support when needed.StorageCraft Cloud Backup same as Vembu is pricier and less flexible in deployment options.

Paragon Hard Disk Manager

Paragon is better in some areas, worse in others.
Better at cloning unhealthy drives. Worse at quick clones.
Acronis is a little more intuitive. Paragon has some dialog that I don't think translates well to English.

Return on Investment

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.

  • Cut time to transition from standard to SSD by over 60%.
  • Cut time to clone from one system to another.
