NAKIVO is great for small environments but struggles in larger deployments

Return on Investment

  • 5 years of purchase + support was less than 1 year's support of a competitive product.
  • Data corruption and mitigation of the risk is costly (tape backup or secondary storage required).
  • Monolithic repositories require large file shares in larger environments.

Return on Investment

  • NAKIVO only costs a fraction of many other backup solutions.
  • After the initial setup, I've had to spend very little time on the maintenance of NAKIVO. That's freed me up to work on other projects.
  • We were able to leverage pre-existing storage to save the cost of using a cloud service.

Return on Investment

  • 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.

A strong backup contender for VMWare Essentials and small businesses

Return on Investment

  • We had a bug that accidentally overwrote a huge section of our DB the live restore failed however, we spun it up and were able to download the DB, extract the needed section and restore it to the db.
  • Having a different data backup store from my snapshots store allows some piece of mind knowing that it would take 2 sets of disk failures to cause a data loss.
