It is user-friendly, we are very satisfied.""For my purpose, I find VM Backup to be the most useful, as it gives me the ability to create image-based, incremental backups of VMware, Hyper-V, and Nutanix AHV VMs."

"It's simple to use.""The most valuable feature is the ability to pick up individual files.""I like the incremental backups and their failover.""The initial setup and deployment are easy. It's straightforward."

More Veeam Agent for Linux Pros →

"There is a familiar error that pops up and that is a VM error as much as it is a Nakivo error. It says that the job couldn't calm the VM and restores might be impacted. That error is, to say the least, a bit scary. I have seen this type of error on other backup systems also.""From our experience, the main factor that could be improved is adding more cloud services that are supported as a backup repository.""Using an independent bootable media to restore full physical machines would enable physical machines that may be serving as Nakivo Director or Transport machines to be reliably restored to service without undue delay, ensuring that an enterprise's local environment remains intact.""The backup speed needs improvement.""What must be improved is the response time to technical support requests.""In the future, it would be nice to have support for Zimbra email, Collabora Office, and the NextCloud content collaboration platform.""In the future, I would like to see support for backing up data to more cloud platforms, besides Amazon.""The first implementation is a bit difficult but once is up and running is rock solid and extremely easy to manage."

More Nakivo Cons →

"There isn't much to improve. They just need to follow the trend or the development of other Linux products. Follow in terms of making the product compatible with new versions of Linux. They just need to include as many versions for Linux as possible.""The integration needs improvement.""They could be more customer-friendly.""The solution is pretty stable right now, however, we believe that the solution could be made to be even more stable."
