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.

I recommend Veeam Backup & Replication software to those around me who do this professionally. Because the Veeam Backup & Replication application is a proven product. Taking daily backups, automating them within themselves, providing and reporting controls can be carried out in very simple steps. If you are considering instant backup, you have to wait a little longer for this

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.
Anonymous | TrustRadius Reviewer

Veeam Backup & Replication

  • Creates a working VM copy of your VM servers
  • Backup and replications are very quick once you have run it the first time. I replicated new servers that had a 127GB drive in less than 15 min because it only backs up the data, not the entire drive.
  • If a backup or replication fails, you can set it to try again and that usually works. I have most of the mine set to retry 3 times.
  • If there is a problem like a backup failed it will email you so you don't have to babysit it.

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.
Anonymous | TrustRadius Reviewer

Veeam Backup & Replication

  • Perhaps some examples of how to set up Veeam given a certain scenario (some of the more common solutions).
  • Something to let a new user know that when you click "Next" on the restore selections, there will be a 'pause', and that it is not restoring the entire volume while you are waiting for the file selection window to load.

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.

We've been using Veeam Backup & Replication for several years in our
organization, and we perform backups in all of our environments every
night. It’s one of the simplest yet effective and reliable solutions in
the market for the backup segment. You can check out the free Veeam
agent, so you can get an idea of the full product.

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%.

To identify a bottleneck in the data path, Veeam Backup & Replication
detects the component with the maximum workload, the component
that works for the most time of the job. For example, you use a
low-speed storage device as the backup repository. Even if VM data is
retrieved from the SAN storage on the source side and transported over a
high-speed link, VM data flow will still be impaired at the backup
repository.

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.

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.

(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

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.
Adrian Takacs | TrustRadius Reviewer

Veeam Backup & Replication

Xen Orchestra for Citrix XenServer is a complementary product to Veeam, as long as Xen Orchestra addresses Citrix Xen Servers and Veeam does not. Both are great tools, although Xen Orchestra community edition is a whit better than the already free XenCenter, the reference management console for Citrix XenServer.

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

  • 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.
Anonymous | TrustRadius Reviewer

Veeam Backup & Replication

  • Veeam has always helped produce profits over time. Being a partner helps as well of course.
  • As mentioned before, justifying the cost for smaller businesses might be difficult. However, they can usually be sold on the reputation and reliability of the platform.
