We are using Nakivo Backup & Replication for a distributed environment. At the moment we are backing up servers for 6 facilities around the world. We found it very easy to configure in the environment we needed to backup, and it actually ease the process to onboard new facilities.
  • Configuration, it's easy to learn how to configure it.
  • Modularity, you can expand it usage by purchasing licenses only when it's needed
  • It improved a lot in the past years, at this point I have no needs which I cannot satisfy with it.
It is well suited for ditributed environments, as I'm using it now. I believe it is very good for a server farm as well, but I'm not sure how it works on this environment since I have no experience.
At this point, for the usage I have, I did not find anything that could be improved.

Mississippi College uses NAKIVO to backup all servers in our VMware environment and it’s installed on a Synology NAS located at each campus. Backups are copied to the other NAS as a 2nd layer of protection and a subset of data is backed up to cloud storage as a 3rd layer. NAKIVO is easy to use and is low maintenance. Backup emails are checked daily and errors are attended to, which happens very seldom. Also, individual files as well as full VM's can be restored when needed. We have been using NAKIVO for several years and have been very pleased with their product as well as their support.
  • NAKIVO software upgrades are easy and quick.
  • NAKIVO has a chat option to contact support immediately within the console.
  • Once you create your backups and define your notifications on those backups, you can set it and forget it. Backup emails alert you of any issues so you know when you need to login to the console to check. NAKIVO does not require daily monitoring, although it is good practice to login to the console at least once a week just to check everything.
  • Support is eager to assist anytime I have contacted them. If 2nd level support is needed, issues are escalated quickly.
  • 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 Screenshot verification doesn't always work for us when our vmtools is out of date. If we are on an older version of VMware and that version of vmtools is up to date, NAKIVO still thinks it is out of date.
NAKIVO backup is great for backing up a VM environment, with the ability to also back up physical servers. Being able to copy backups from one NAS to another without having to visit the DR site is a great benefit and time saver. Cloud storage backups are icing on the cake in a time of increasing ransomware cyberattacks. Each year we have been more pleased with NAKIVO than the year before.

We also appreciate how easy it is to deploy and manage the product
  • Quick and easy deployment
  • Backup of complete virtual machines and at the file level
  • Compatibility with other products
  • Deduplication
  • Full OS-level backup on physical machines

We use the solution ourselves and recommend it to our customers, as we are very convinced of its performance and usability. VMWare and Hyper-V are installed for our customers.
  • less Systemrequirements
  • easy to Manage
  • multiple Platforms
  • no local Datastore for Office 365 backups possible?
  • easier Way to find the Software (for Registered Partners)
  • Please no Questions to speak with our Customers -> We are the trusted Consultants there and most of them dont speak that good English.
We use the VM, the Windows Appliance, or the NAS APP for our customers. So far, no critical errors have occurred, as it runs very reliably. If a mistake or something similar occurs, we have always been able to find a solution with support. Restoring has also worked very well in corresponding tests. From us a clear recommendation!

We had to carry out a technological renewal of our software infrastructure based on Vmware Vsphere with storage on Qnap nas made of file share storage, ~60 virtual machines, 3.4 TB of data. We were looking for an easy-to-manage solution capable of backing up both network shares and Vsphere, possibly without having to allocate new hardware or expensive software resources.
  • Can be installed natively on nas appliances leveraging the use of underutilized appliances. No need to install the software on Windows or Linux Servers.
  • Backup natively Vmware Virtual Machines and File Shares (you need to buy the right license modules).
  • Destination storage for backups (or of the backup copies) can be Microsoft shares, Amazon S3, Wasabi, Backblaze and remotely to other sites using their transporter vm.
  • To not overload the system with overlapping jobs, they can be chained one after the other.
  • Rapid add/remove/reorder priority of vm to backup and their backup archive. Jobs can be easily changed or chained.
  • Quick support service
  • The file share recover via CIFS should be able to recover files directly into the filesystem (along with security settings) instead of downloading a zip file.
  • Currently, backup of File Shares to Amazon S3/Wasabi is not supported.
  • Email notifications should have a customizable subject that supports the use of some predefined variables that will be expanded when sending.
  • It would also be useful to see on the Backup view of a repository the number of recovery points for each object and the backup type for each row.
  • When navigating the Backup view of VM repository and there are several protected virtual machines, you have several pages to navigate to reach a specific vm. However, after entering the detail view of a backup, when you click the "<" on the page, you are returned to the first page of repository instead of being returned to the nth page you were on before.
  • On the Backup view of a VM repository, it would be nice to have a tooltip showing the summary data of the backup you are hovering over (or by clicking the hyperlink).
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.

Excellent and easy to use product for backup and replication of their existing Data Bases and Sharing Folders, giving visibility on tasks and finished jobs, which saves time and makes management easy. Being reliable is also very important as they can fully focus on other things and also it is highly price competitive.
  • Easy to install and use
  • Reliable
  • Price competitive
  • Support for older OS like Win7
Excellent product for fulfilling majority of the task regular users are asking, still can be an issue if they they have partially older OS like Win7 and XP. Works perfect with any other scenario and does not require extender IT skills to install or maintain in comparison to some other products.

Currently I use the product to back up 5 virtual machines which are distributed on 3 physical servers, and the daily backup is done locally on a synology server and on Saturdays to the wazabi cloud, for now it is I have had problems with some virtual machines but I have already solved it, it has been a versioning issue and when updating it it has worked without problems, I have also carried out a restoration test and the virtual machine has worked without problems. It seems exceptional to me since I have had a lot of support from them as a partner, something that is not seen with other products and they are always willing to give space to review any problem, this is something that with other providers you have to review with the vendor and never with the vendor. develops the product, even in the matter of prices it seems to me something very adjusted to the product which has been innovating year after year.

We use Nakivo Backup & Replication to back up a customer's VMWare-based infrastructure: two ESXi nodes with ~15 VMs and a NAS to store their data. We needed something easy to implement, suitable for a small but growing infrastructure, and with a license model that could fit our not so huge budget.
  • Great integration with VMWare
  • Ease of use
  • Great tecnichal and commercial support
  • Nothing to report. I never had issues with this software.
Nakivo Backup & Replication worked just fine in the above scenario. I don't have experience with larger infrastructures, but you can see you can add plenty of VMs, jobs, and destinations. You can recover both whole VMs and single files\directory and you can even balance the workload using multiple "transporters".
I never really had major issues, so I cannot speak for this kind of support request, but every time I had either technical or commercial doubts the support was just an email away. Both supports are quick and effective. When I had issues understanding the licensing model, a representative offered to call me and explain every detail via video call.

We use NAKIVO Backup & Replication to back up critical VMs. With this software we solve our problems with VMs backups. It is very easy to configure the backup and very powerful, fast and intuitive. We can backup VMs of different windows server version, 2012R2, 2016, 2019 or 2022. We can keep our information safe and, probably, we extend the use to physical environments. The cost is effective and we recommend NAKIVO Backup & Replication.
  • The web interfaces is simple and easy to use
  • Cost Effective
  • Very Secure
  • I would like it to be in Spanish
  • Spanish Support
  • Restore physical machine
It's perfect in all enviroments, VMs, phisical, Office 365, etc. Actually we use it with VMs, but we will want to use with Office365. It's suitable for all sized businesses.

We have been using NAKIVO Backup & Replication to perform virtualizations and backups of our company's servers for 8 years. We have several physical servers and, within them, several Virtual ones. To avoid a disaster, we have the same virtual servers on all our physical servers, some in production and others stopped, in such a way that if a server stopped working, we would pick up the ones that are not working at that moment and everything would return to normal in a few minutes. For that, we use NAKIVO Backup & Replication to create the virtualizations of the servers that are working and distribute them in the servers to be able to recover them in case of loss of one of the physical servers. We also carry out virtualizations in case we have a malware or ransomware attack on any of our servers to set up a replica and function again as if we had not had the attack. We use NAKIVO Backup & Replication because it allows us to make these replicas because it also allows us to make retention points to return to a replica made a few hours before or a few days or weeks before the disaster occurred. We also make backups of the servers to have a copy and be able to recover a server or file in a granular way. It is slower than setting up a replica, but it allows us to have them outside the company so that in the event of a physical disaster on the servers, we can recover the system.
  • Server Replication
  • Server Backup
  • Granular file recovery
  • Server Recovery
  • I would like it to be in Spanish
  • What you would change is your product maintenance renewal policy
Any company that has its own virtual servers, should have NAKIVO Backup & Replication. It is an essential replication and backup tool that they will need at some point in their lives, since the possibility of a malware attack or a problem in a server can occur at any time, and you have to be prepared for it. I see it less useful for working with replicas and backups in the cloud. At first, it goes quite fast, but as time goes by, backups become slower and slower, at least in my little experience with it.
When I needed support, they always tried to solve the problem, including the language problem. I speak and understand English quite poorly, but when I have been with them or they have put a bilingual person for me, or they have been patient in the explanation. Regarding the technical aspect, they have solved the problems, and when they could not, they connected to the company and saw what the problem could be solved.

We needed a system that would allow backups of VM Linux and Windows, with GFS mode and replicas of VMWare infrastructures, all without using tape technology and to have a robust and independent application.
  • Speed in incremental Backup & Replication to DR site for VMWare infrastructure is very high.
  • Browsing of stored backup retention point is very quick and simple to manage.
  • Integration with Microsoft365 cloud to obtain an own secure data backup is a very important feature.
  • The structure of the transporters in clustered environments is really efficient.
  • quiescence management (application-aware) in replication service
We used this application in many different scenarios, from little environment to a geographic DR management of a clustered infrastructure and the suite is well working everywhere with a strong efficiency, scalability and robustness.

We use NAKIVO to back up our whole VMware environment. With NAKIVO, we have solved the problem of the long backup writing process and gained the possibility to quickly restore the whole machine or individual files.

  • No problems after updates.
  • Very good contact with the support department.
  • Better and more readable access to logs.

NAKIVO Backup & Replication is used in our company for backup of the company business software, VMware virtual appliances, and Microsoft Office 365 One Drive and Outlook data. The solution is easy to implement, has a user-friendly interface, and allowed us to quickly and reliably create backups. The backup validation and instant recovery options made our regular disaster recovery procedure checkup much easier and saved us a lot of time. Recovery of files or emails is straightforward and quite simple and makes life much easier when users accidentally delete their files. The immutable storage feature provides an additional level of security and protection. On top of this, the solution is affordable and has flexible licensing models.
  • Backup validation
  • Instant recovery
  • No bare-metal recovery
  • No email notification aggregation
  • Update of transporters on machines is not performed automatically when the solution is updated to a new version
The solution is best suited for virtual and mixed platform environments. It can be deployed on NAS devices which can significantly reduce costs and power consumption. Currently, recovery of physical machines is only possible to virtual, and this could be an issue in certain cases. The recovery of files, folders, and emails works great and is fast and easy. The automatic backup validation is of great help.

I looked at NAKIVO initially as a supplemental backup solution, to go alongside our main solution. After the easy installation and ease of use, we have now shifted ideas and use NAKIVO as the primary backup for our NYC office. The setup overall was very easy, and the few issues I did have were quickly resolved by NAKIVO support. They even remotely connected to assist, which did make everything easier. I would recommend this service to anyone in need of on-prem or cloud backups.
  • Backup VM's on-prem
  • Send backup copies to AWS cloud
  • Easy setup
  • More links to how-to/FAQ on menu pages
  • Branding guide
  • Guide for transporters
In our case, NAKIVO works well backing up virtual machines in a virtual environment. It also works well sending that backup job data to the AWS cloud.

Our #1 tool for backing up and restoring the local VMs and file storage infrastructure. NAKIVO makes it possible to maintain any local network service interruptions. We set up NAKIVO to create daily snapshots and backups. Just two months ago we lost one of our VM hosts... thanks to those snapshots, we were up and running again within an hour!
  • Managing VM backups and restoration.
  • Excellent technical support availability
  • Well thought through scheduler and retention
  • Add Cloud backup
  • Allow Calendar function in lower subscription
  • Integrate Transporter Updates through the Web UI
Perfect for reliably backing up VMs and regular data backups. Just set it up, schedule it once, and forget about it! Restoration is quick and effective. However, it tends to fail to create quiesced (application-aware) snapshots. Certain VM environments might not be supported or need a more careful compatibility check when setting up with NAKIVO.

We use NAKIVO to back up all of our server infrastructures. From physical dedicated servers to hyper V VMs & file-level backup & bare-metal recovery backups, SQL Database Backups, and Log file backups. basically every backup there is, we use NAKIVO. alongside some other programs but NAKIVO is our preferred and main option. We have weekly, daily, and monthly backups set up and haven't had a single problem with ANY backup that came from NAKIVO. Other software has problems & bugs and random errors that make the backup fail, NAKIVO has had NOTHING in the last 4 years that we've been using it. Very reliable software for backups of all sorts.
  • Bare metal Recovery Backups
  • Restoring a backup to hyper V and automatically adding it & starting the VM. Easy to duplicate machines
  • email notifications if a backup fails, but we haven't had a single backup fail due to problems with the software in over 4 years. Very reliable software.
  • Scheduled jobs, are very easy to configure & monitor & setup.
  • transponder updates, We've had one problem over 4 years with the update just a single machine doesn't like to be auto-updated. All other nodes/transporters/transponders work perfectly.
  • If a backup is failing constantly, and it's set up send an email out every time it fails if it tries once an hour. This should be modified so I don't get spammed overnight with failing backups.
  • Auto-update transporters without my intervention once a stable build is out and has been tested elsewhere
NAKIVO is amazing for all environments. From small to large, the software is very reliable, and haven't had a problem with it in over 4 years backing up literally everything. From daily around 40 servers to monthly at around 65 servers. All backup's integrity is verified and all passed with flying colors. Very easy restore jobs and scheduling is easy so very reliable for all types of environments. I couldn't possibly think of any environments where this software would be less appropriate. This is appropriate for EVERYTHING.

We have used NAKIVO Since 2019 .... the first time, I was in a little company near us... and they were using the free version of this wonderful product. I saw that and after I tried it in our office ... after 2 - 3 days we were a partner of NAKIVO. I sold it to many of our customers... why? because it is very simple to implement it has all features needed for anyone to make their own backup and own infrastructure safety are very proud to be one of first Italy's partners of them. The last solution implemented on our customer has been for Office 365 Backup.... they are 100 people and they want safe all of Microsoft 365, mail, sites in Sharepoint, and personals one drive... NAKIVO helps us and our customers to do that.
  • Replication for DR sites
  • Office 365 backup
  • Easy backup of our ESXi or Vcenter vms
  • So many times we use Plesk to publish so many customer applications it would be very well if they will develop the plugin for Plesk Backup.
We use NAKIVO for internal backup and replication. We make a 2° copy of our backup safe in another external disk like Wasabi and these features are much appreciated by our boss.

After a client acquired a Synology NAS, we learned about Nakivo's product, which in addition to offering us everything that Veeam offered, was cheaper and we could run it from the NAS itself, where we planned to store the information. This meant eliminating a server with the costs that this entails (operating system and protection licenses, electricity consumption, etc.). In addition to being cheaper, it simplified production start-up and management because it was very intuitive. So far, we have not suffered any loss of information, which is the most critical aspect of this service. The constant development and continuous improvements of the product are also attractive to us. In short, Nakivo is a Backup utility that can compete perfectly with the best-known applications deployed in large multinationals (you have to check compatibility with the infrastructure), but also, thanks to its prices, it is affordable for any type of business; both small and medium-sized companies, putting within reach of an SME, the security with which any multinational could work.

  • Disaster Recovery
  • Quick restore of files and entire VMs
  • Communication between Director and Transporters during the automatic updates can be improved
  • Internal DB reconstruct after a failure may be managed more efficiently
I didn't have (as by now) experience on mid-large installations but I can tell that this product for a small company with 3 hosts and 20/25 VMs is perfect and has the same (or better) features as some other more expensive alternatives.
Every time I've had even a small issue to solve, the support was always rapid and efficient, solving the problem in the minimum time possible, using every tool needed.
