"For my first experience, it is the best software for backups, especially for a five-system backup."
"The licensing model is very good."
"The administration is pretty flexible in terms of defining a multi-tenant type of setup."
"The most valuable feature is that you can do a bare-metal restore even with dissimilar hardware."
"For local backups, it has options to back up almost any storage. The back can be either a shared folder or anything you want, it's pretty flexible."
"The most valuable feature is the quick restoration. We can restore the data quickly."
"The performance has been fine so far."
"It has simple buying options and deployments. You can buy on-cloud, on-premises, or hybrid solutions. Acronis Backup is very easy to deploy. It also does not consume much hardware. The administrator's tasks are very simple. It is very user friendly, and it also has good security features with low-level encryption and data encryption."
"NAKIVO is easy to use and pretty easy to set up."
"Nakivo's backup and replication product has allowed us to implement a disaster recovery solution with a target repository in the cloud."
"This product has helped to centralize backups and made it easy to recover data."
"Backups are very easy to implement and schedule, the product is very useful, and the recovery procedure is very extensive and feature-rich."
"The user interface in general is very good. I"
"We really appreciate the simplicity of the solution."
"It is easy to manage all of the individual backup jobs, check the status every day, and it can even send an email to keep us informed."
"The most valuable feature is the support, as it is directly from Nakivo and it is possible to send a support request that contains all of the technical data on the environment, as well as the software, required for the answer."
"The solution could use a single sign-on integration that can default to the admin dashboard. Right now, it's only username and password. If you had had an additional two-factor authentication, this would be beneficial for me."
"It would be nice to have a partition that I can boot and reinstall when taking a backup image from the operating system."
"One improvement that could be made is adding the option to download files in a PST format when doing a 365 or Google Cloud to cloud backup."
"In the span of six months, maintenance is done at least twice and you are told that it is coming up, with apologies for the inconvenience. It's a distraction, and it interferes with the backup schedule."
"In some cases, at the time of reinstallation, some disasters happen. For the licensing on the computer the name of the computer and domain, everything is removed from the registry level. Then we have to install the Acronis from the start for it to work properly. Otherwise, the Acronis software will cause a lot of trouble at the time of reinstallation. That's where they need to improve the product. In the case people want to install the same software with the same hardware, it should not stop me."
"It supports Microsoft SQL and Microsoft Exchange, but it does not support Oracle databases or Postgres."
"The new version has anti-malware and software management features, but these features should be enhanced. It is working as an exclusive solution along with the backup and recovery."
"When you are using enterprise hardware and software that increases over time, there need to be better and more management features. For pure backup software, it is fine, but when it comes to managing a large infrastructure it is lacking."
"There are some errors requiring support to correct and bugs and glitches should be addressed."
"In the future, I would like to see support for backing up data to more cloud platforms, besides Amazon."
"The way encryption is currently working could be improved. Currently, it's not possible to encrypt the backup to an NFS share directly. It needs to have the encryption within the Transporter/VM to enable encryption, which isn't optimal. So I'm hoping that in the near future this function will be implemented."
"The only thing we have encountered that we would like to see improved in the future are error messages. They could be more detailed and helpful, without the need to send logs to support. Failing that, the part of the log related to the error could be displayed alongside the error message, so I can investigate the error without looking through all of those logs that I'm able to download."
"There are many features we have not had the opportunity to try, such as Tape Backups, Office 365 backups, and many other things."
"My first thought was maybe the GUI could be improved, although it works."
"The interface might be improved, but the interface of every product might be improved."
"In the press releases, it would be useful to make sure that the manual space reclaim procedure does not have to be performed but that it happens automatically, thus optimizing the use of space."
