Overall Satisfaction with NAKIVO Backup & Replication

I use NAKIVO for backing up my VMWare Lab (around 10 VM's), to a Synology NAS. Install was piece of cake, through the Synology AppManager, config also was super easy, just created the Backup Repository, selected the VM's to backup and voila! The load is minimal in the VM environment, the job is done by the Synology NAS.
  • The biggest help for me was the possibility to use Synology NAS to do the job.
  • The calendar is helping a lot programming the backup job without overlapping another running job.
  • Migration to another Synology NAS is also easy, just export/import the configuration, reconfigure the repository and done.
  • I can't remember anything.
  • The positive impact is absolute, Install/configure/run in minutes, fair pricing.
Veeam needs a Physical Windows machine or VM running Windows, that also have to connect to a Backup Repository, was time-consuming to set-up and configure, I also had problems VM's locked-up during the backup process.
I can highly recommend for small business for the ease of configure/use.
