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.

Veeam Software

Automated backups with extra features help in taking backup of data and help to manage the data. Use cases such as application data that is no longer frequently used can be moved through this product seamlessly and securely. It helps to determine the cost but not helping much to determine how to reduce the cost, such as cost optimization.

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.

Veeam Software

  • Restoring from the AWS cloud to an existing virtual machine (VM), a freshly created VM (VM), a sandbox environment, etc.
  • Using Amazon Web Services' (Amazon) cloud as a backup destination.
  • The Veeam B&R product family offers a convenient interface for managing backups.

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 Screenshot verification doesn't always work for us when our vmtools is out of date. If we are on an older version of VMware and that version of vmtools is up to date, NAKIVO still thinks it is out of date.

Veeam Software

  • Latency was an issue sometimes and after backing up data for 95%, the backup will fail and we will have to re-run
  • UX is great but we would like to have more CLI usage and automation baked into the solution. Especially now when GitOps (IaC) is getting traction.
  • Pricing wise the Veeam solution was difficult for native business to adopt.

    Because it is a product that I have been using for many years, it is becoming easier to use, and it also includes more and more things that you might need.

    There are intentions to renew Veeam backup. the reasons are
    pretty straightforward and self-explanatory. Veeam PM provides best backup
    solution which can be explored from the answers to other questions. other
    obvious reason, moving from one platform to other platform is expensive
    exercise plus it's a time consuming exercise. So till the time Veeam costs and
    the features are in line with enterprise expectation well good

    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.

    The usability of this software is pretty solid as Veeam Backup as we have always managed to always restore the data we require. We generally havent had many failures when we have it scheduled for automated backups and have had to restore several times with ease. We havent encountered many issues but we havent used the full features of Veeam Backup yet

    Well, the best scenario to use this is providing the real-time sync status of replication of media; it shows the health of the media so the admin can plan a backup accordingly. Instant recovery is the best in case of a loss of a VM. I like the fact that you can use multiple proxies to backup data through WAN. Setting up scheduling is easy once you know what you are doing.

    We have not really noticed much difference and only notice it when doing work afterhours with our veeam being backed up. However, this is not the case as we do not do this often and hence we don't really have any real challenges for performance issues. Overall, we find that the performance is pretty good

    One of the best and leading backup solution with central management for all Virtual Servers, Physical servers and Application level backup. Migrated from distributed backup solution running at each site to central VEEAM solution which has reduced overhead of backup administrator and improves the backup performance. Veeam team is very supportive in solution design, taken care of all our requirements and provided the cost effective solution.

    Implementation Rating

    Nakivo Inc.

    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.

    We were pretty happy with our implementation as it was simple to deploy and we followed the technical guide online with out much technical assistance from vendor support. We had also tested and streamlined a process based on our own documentation for our own company which was simple to follow overall for deploying into AWS for future instances

    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.

    Being an existing customer of Veeam for the VMware platform and having years of experience dealing with licensing and customer support, drove us to select Veeam backup for AWS. Cohesity licensing was very complicated and did not fit into our budget.

    Contract Terms and Pricing Model

    Nakivo Inc.

    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.

    We have found that Veeam Backup on AWS is very reliable as we have had it running for about a year and only have had it failed daily a few times and that was due to outages or servers that was part of our maintainance. We also like how the testing and verification of our backups is an excellent feature to confirm we can restore to the previous backup

    Return on Investment

    Nakivo Inc.

    • One of our contributors has permanently deleted worksheets from our file server. From Nakivo, we were able to recover all the data in less than 10 minutes.
    • An authentication server was encrypted by ransomware, through NAKIVO Backup & Replication, we recover the entire server within 1 hour.

    • The only thing is that you have to make sure you understand your AWS costs if your retention periods are not kept under control.
    • ROI is hard to prove until the moment you need to restore your workload.
    • Time-saving is something that comes to mind. Before Veeam, we used to spend/waste a lot of time verifying and testing our backup and restore. Veeam makes it easy with its SureBackup technology.
