NAKIVO Backup & Replication

If you are using VM is it the perfect solution at an affordable cost. I moved to NAKIVO Backup & Replication after my last backup software was charging me above affordable prices. It was a cheap and stable solution for us. It has covered all our needs. The restore has been tested, and it works without any issues. This product is suited for companies that have a small budget and want to keep all their data safe.
Spiros Kaladelfos | TrustRadius Reviewer

Veeam Backup & Replication

I think the only real issues with giving Veeam a 10 is that the resources taken by the VSS processes, as well as the toll taken on a host are hard to rationalize. We have seen issues with hosts being brought to sub-optimal performance while a backup is taking place. We have also seen hosts that take longer to backup their guests because the resources are over-utilized, especially for management and disk access.

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.
Clyde Wynter | TrustRadius Reviewer

Veeam Backup & Replication

  • Veeam has built some very useful application-specific tools for recovering exchange server items, emails, etc.
  • Veeam is relatively simple to set up, but provides a lot of extended features should the need come one day. Features like replication and backup copy were not originally implemented in our project goals.
  • Support is outstanding, their SLAs are clearly outlined, and their engineers are easy to understand and their ticket opening flow is simple enough.

Cons

NAKIVO Backup & Replication

  • Physical Linux host backup using their agent software supports various types of Linux storage volumes (LVMs) - I have not tested this in over a year since facing some issues early on.
  • Continued improvement on the UI making it quicker to find common tasks and more intuitive.
Anonymous | TrustRadius Reviewer

Veeam Backup & Replication

  • Needs to be able to backup linux and mac instances as we have some use for that
  • I have heard nightmares for the cloud based backups and due to that I have steered from that attempt and went with a different company.
  • License costs could be better as the market has gotten more competitive in recent years.

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.

I really have no complaints about Veeam Backup & Replication. Their service has been excellent and the cost is minimal in comparison to other services I checked out. Implementation wasn't simple and the Veeam Support team was there to help each step of the way.

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.

Veeam is fairly simple in terms of how it is set up; its not an overly-complicated dashboard that can be intimidating to less technically-inclined users. Veeam also offers good instructional videos to help users work through how to do specific functions. I appreciate that they have specific video tutorials rather than having users scroll through a cumbersome manual.

The Veeam Backup & Replication solution is up and running every time you need it as it was planned. In more than 3 years that we have been using the product every night, it might have failed or presented an error once or twice, so the availability percentage is almost at 100%.

Veeam does a good job with backing up our servers in a timely manner. We are still at the beginning of our Veeam use and are pleased with the speed at which we can access the system as well as the backups and restore points. Veeam is definitely superior to our previous backup system in terms of speed and accessibility

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.

Support response can be slow and sometimes tedious if you have a non-generic issue in your environment. Due to my experience with Veeam, I often discover the solutions before support does, but on the rare occasion where I need a higher tier of support, their experience and skill set are excellent. If you truly find something odd in your environment, Veeam Support, Development and their teams of engineers will figure it out and provide custom hot-fixes when necessary.

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.
Clyde Wynter | TrustRadius Reviewer

Veeam Backup & Replication

Veeam Backup & Replication 9.9
Based on 29 answers
(I assume this question should say "Veeam" and not "Crownpeak Universal Consent Platform")Planning is key. Planning your backup schedule, size, data restore points, replication if you're doing that, &c. Testing is also important; make sure you back something up and then do a test restore. Set up alerts so you know if things aren't working (or even if they are, always good to know that too).

Alternatives Considered

NAKIVO Backup & Replication

NAKIVO Backup & Replication is easier to deploy, even for initial and full deployment. But in our case, we deploy it as an OVA, so we keep it easier. We also can create new backup jobs quickly and restore damaged VMs in very few steps. We do not ever detect a depletion in-network Bandwith on the backup process nor restore ones.
Anonymous | TrustRadius Reviewer

Veeam Backup & Replication

We used Zerto and CA Arcserve to address these needs without migrating to Veeam Backup & Replication. Zerto is a very successful instant backup and we are still using it now. It does what Veeam application cannot do in instant replication. CA Arcserve, on the other hand, is clearly lagging behind the Veeam Backup & Replication product and does not meet today's requirements.

Our customer has a small infrastructure, so we could make good use of the "one-shot" Nakivo license. Our customer does not need to pay a fee every year (although you are requested to pay a subscription in order to have updates and support, that is only fair) and we could grant them a top-notch product.

Scalability can be addressed in many ways, but there is a consequence:
Higher performance and smaller backup windows may put too much stress on
production storage, and therefore, on its performance and Availability
to production workloads. To reduce stress on production storage, version
9.5 introduces a new way of reading VM disks that is optimized for
enterprise storage.

Return on Investment

NAKIVO Backup & Replication

  • Due to ease of use, NAKIVO allowed us to spend more time on other tasks knowing that our backup system will just run as expected.
  • Since moving to NAKIVO, we've been able to do away with tapes and move to a disk/cloud-based model.
Anonymous | TrustRadius Reviewer

Veeam Backup & Replication

  • Veeam Backup & Replication made it possible to restore a crashed virtual server quickly and without problems to another Hyper-V host. With Windows Server Backup it would have taken longer and more effort to get the same result.
  • With Veeam Backup & Replication we're making sure we have a good and functional backup which makes our software developers feel safer that their projects are really getting backupped
