    File share backup is less rich in terms of restore features, but the basic functions are supported. It have all you need to plan backup jobs. Backup and restore of virtual machines is the strongest function of Nakivo. When backing up to Amazon S3, keep in mind that you will be taxed also based on the I/O you make and this will be more prominent cost with Nakivo.

    • Very good for a backup that is also used for frequent access (like a remote HD) and is easy to share.
    • Not 100% reliable as a full copy (like TimeMachine) of the HD, but not far off.

    Pros

    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

    Nakivo Inc.

    • Backups have the option of "screenshot verification". Screenshot verification doesn't always work for us when our vmtools is out of date. If we are on an older version of VMware and that version of vmtools is up to date, NAKIVO still thinks it is out of date.

    • Backup to Dropbox and other cloud services would be great.
    • Online backup to 3rd party cloud services that do not affect band-width on the user end.

    Usability

    Nakivo Inc.

    NAKIVO Backup & Replication is very easy to set up. I did it by myself, and it went perfectly. Online documents are very well written, and also the tech support asked to help me set it up. I want to do it by myself and the setup process is very easy to do. The connection to your VM and servers is very easy to do.

    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

    Nakivo Inc.

    NAKIVO Backup & Replication offers most of the features of the great products and the ones most used by all backup administrators at a very competitive price. For this reason, it is not necessary to make large outlays to be able to maintain a backup with a high level of security. It is quick to implement and very simple to use.

    From my research, SysTools was chosen mainly due to its simplicity. Other software tends to add a lot of eye candy, which for me was not necessary. I needed something that I could configure and leave running in the background relatively unnoticed. SysTools provided that with little interruption to my daily activities.

    Of course, you always think that something could be a bit cheaper. But NAKIVO Backup & Replication delivers real value for its price and value that lasts. We greatly appreciate that you are still able to actually BUY the software instead of being forced into subscription services. After all, it is OUR data and it should remain that.
