Overall Satisfaction with NAKIVO Backup & Replication
We use Nakivo to backup our VM Ware servers. We have a pair of EXSI 6.5 hosts with Dell Datastore and backup our mission-critical systems.
- 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.
We evaluated at pricing on other options but most were cost prohibitive. The pricing of Nakivo allowed us to bring backups into our business processes.
I would say this is perfect for a small enterprise with VMWare Essentials. Using the Live view on data let me get in and recover a single file. I don't know how pricing would hold up against a large install but like VMWare Essentials this is targeted at a small company. I also used it for part of my migration from one set of servers to a new one.
