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.

SkyKick does a great job on migrations to Office 365. Their technicians are very helpful in planning the whole process, and the tool itself is quite reliable and resilient. Their cloud backup works OK but it does not provide the most friendly or fastest recovery. It also sits on the expensive side as they charge separately for Exchange and Onedrive/Sharepoint backups.

Pros

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.

  • Customer Interface for Backups
  • Migration support team
  • Comprehensive backup suite

Cons

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

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

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.

  • Helps to reduce costs on specific projects by reducing in-house or [outsourced] technician labor costs.
  • Reduced risk by keeping a copy of your data in their cloud.
