The pricing was a little confusing, but the sales rep was there, and he explained everything in detail. He also was trying to sell me a product that suits my needs and was not the most expensive.

The pricing for VM backups is good value for money as it does not limit how many VM's per socket. This works well for smaller sites with simple backup requirements. Physical machine backup pricing would more attractive with a sliding scale based on the number of physical machines.

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.

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.

The licensing is complex and not easy to understand at first. As you can use very small installations with one socket up to hundreds that can not be easily explained of course. This is the only thing I would like changed on NAKIVO's end.
