We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use. Here are some excerpts of what they said:
"It is an excellent product. It is easy to deploy, stable, and fast. Their support is excellent."
"The CDP backup feature is very nice, as it allows you to take backups at high frequencies and with application consistency."
"The interface is user-friendly and even if our tech isn't onsite, we can work with the owners to confirm that the data will be restored with no issues."
"The speed of the backups and replications is fantastic and, for the most part, the simplicity of use has been wonderful."
"The chat functionality with Nakivo Support in the web interface is very unique and we love it."
"The most important feature besides the easy management of the different backup jobs is the automated e-mail notification functionality."
"This product has helped to centralize backups and made it easy to recover data."
"With Nakivo, I have the peace of mind that all of my production environment is safely backed up and can be restored safely, easily, and quickly with a few clicks."
"Nakivo offers direct support through the graphical interface and this is great to have if you need quick help."
"The product is good for protecting very low-budget offices, whereas other solutions fail in terms of cost and footprint of the VMs involved."
"Nakivo Backup and Replication's web-based management interface enables intuitive, rapid, and seamless configuration and management of all backup and recovery functionality across the enterprise."
"Basically, how it works is that you have a single local drive, and then you have a cloud backup. It'd be nice if you could rotate the single local backup drive. As of now, you can't."
"The application could include a feature to install a set size of data, such as the ability to store a single application with all its registry information for easy transfer."
"To improve Altaro, I would like to see the ability to choose more than one backup location at a time."
"There is a lack of native (web-based) update functionality."
"Personally, I would like to have the ability to backup older legacy systems on the new versions as well."
"While the solution provides mostly what we need, it would be ideal if there were some additional feature capabilities for the API."
"It would be good to have some Oracle database backup capability from the Linux OS in the next release."
"I had to manually install SNMP, which wasn't hard, but a step I had to take, to plug this into the monitoring system."
"There are some errors requiring support to correct and bugs and glitches should be addressed."
"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."
"It would be great if they had a Let's Encrypt integration."
"Its yearly maintenance fee is fairly high for me to renew for upgrades and support."
"Altaro had the best prices and ROI in the whole bunch that we evaluated."
"The price is great for the utility you get and the licensing has never caused any issues with my company."
"This product provides good value for the price."
"From the perspective of Indian users, the cost is a little bit high."
"Nakivo Backup & Replication also have another great value, which is that it is one of the lowest prices on the market."
"The licensing model is crystal clear on the website."
"It has a very good price in the market."
"The licensing currently allows for host-based licensing, which is advantageous if you have a lot of data on a few hosts."
"You have a lot of different options when it comes to pricing and the pricing models are pretty flexible and affordable."
"Cost is very appropriate for SMEs."
