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.

StorageCraft Cloud Backup

StorageCraft is the best, in my opinion, when it comes to back up servers with bare metal images. The image manager for sending those files to the cloud is also great. I would have to say the file and folder option,(formally gilware) still needs work. It's just not as reliable or easy to use.

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.

StorageCraft Cloud Backup

  • Easy file and folder backup and restoring.
  • Easy file and folder restoring with versioning.
  • StorageCraft has great tools that allow you to spin up virtual machines from bare metal backups.

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.

StorageCraft Cloud Backup

  • After buying Gilware, the file and folder backup side of their operation needs to be updated. It's lacking features and hasn't been touched really since the buyout. Also, it does fit into the main Dashboard very well. It's just an iframe that opens another website. It's very clunky.
  • The file and folder software also needs a re-work. It also hasn't been changed much from the Gilware software. Although it works great, it lacks options, and doesn't provide a lot of info.
  • I really can't think of anything else I dislike about the software or the service. Everything just works for the most part.

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.

StorageCraft Cloud Backup

I haven't used many others, but Acronis is one of them. Acronis seemed to break for me very easily, a problem I don't have with StorageCraft. I couldn't find Macrium in the list, but it also has given me issues that I don't have with StorageCraft. StorageCraft, as I said before, just works, and I don't have to worry about my data.

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.

StorageCraft Cloud Backup

  • It allows me to providereliable backing to my customers without the headache of constantly tinkering with them.
  • StorageCraft just works. You set it and forget it, which saves time, and time is money
  • They have the packages priced so that small (like myself), medium, and large companies can afford it.
