Quotes From Members

We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use. Here are some excerpts of what they said:

Pros
"It is flexible.""It is affordable.""It is easy-to-use.""Most valuable for DimenXional Cloud is the API provided by Nakivo which allows us to implement the software in all types of solutions.""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.""Backups are very easy to implement and schedule, the product is very useful, and the recovery procedure is very extensive and feature-rich.""We really appreciate the simplicity of the solution.""It is easy to set up using the included virtual appliance and also includes agents for most NAS systems."

More Nakivo Pros »

"Before Veeam, we had backup infrastructure sprawl. Veeam was able to reduce our overall backup windows while reducing our dedicated backup infrastructure.""Vendor integration for many of the enterprise features have allowed for us to have greater performance from our storage vendors further improving on our commitments to protect our clients' data.""The most valuable feature is the ability to verify that backups are valid.""Features with the most value are Instant VM Recovery, SQL Explorer and Exchange Explorer.""The most valuable feature is adaptability, where it automatically adapts to the environment that it's being installed on.""The product is very simple in its design. We don't need it to perform complicated tasks.""The integration with some storage systems like HP or Nutanix and great support are the most valuable features. You get productivity support. You get a response within one hour, even in the evening or night. The functionality of the whole software is good.""I can't think of any improvements yet for Veeam because they are very good. It integrates very well with Microsoft applications. It is very easy to integrate. Micro Focus can also integrate but it's more complex. You have to know the product very well to be able to integrate. While Veeam, it's very user-friendly. You don't need to have certifications or anything to work on Veeam."

Cons
"The interface might be improved, but the interface of every product might be improved.""While the solution provides mostly what we need, it would be ideal if there were some additional feature capabilities for the API.""While the solution provides mostly what we need, it would be ideal if there were some additional feature capabilities for the API.""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.""It would be interesting if it were possible to integrate a mobile app to monitor the system in real-time.""What must be improved is the response time to technical support requests.""We are satisfied with Nakivo, but if anything could be improved, I think it would be more real-time as opposed to email support availability.""In the loading of a backup, choosing what to restore seems to be a lengthy process, but it has always worked in my restore tests."

More Nakivo Cons »

"Multithreading of health check process: This can take too much time to process on large jobs and/or large VMs.""Additional executive summary reports for the entire infrastructure would be a nice to have.""One challenge that we have encountered was on the long-term retention of data. Be sure to look into a dedicated deduplication appliance.""We would like to see support for some additional storage systems.""Physical backup is always where room for improvement could be but Veeam has always stated they are not going in that direction.""They need full cloud integration such that an on-premises backup can be offloaded to the cloud for storage.""It needs to offer an automatic check for backups.""The whole graphical user interface is very easy, but the details are hidden deeply and aren't easily visible. You cannot easily see the details and explore or choose the settings. We should be able to easily explore various settings and options. If you can see more details while choosing the settings or setting it up, it helps in getting the software running easily. For example, in Microsoft Office, you can see much more in the interface than in Veeam Backup & Replication. It is a complex software. It is not easy to use, and you must know what to do and where to do. The user manual has more than a thousand pages. They should give some direct information through the software and improve the software. On their website, they can have some videos and step-by-step information to make us come straight to our goals."

Pricing and Cost Advice
"You have a lot of different options when it comes to pricing and the pricing models are pretty flexible and affordable.""The product is quite cheap compared to other products on the market, but despite this, it is rich in features both at the level of backup and recovery as well as at the level of additional options.""Nakivo Backup & Replication also have another great value, which is that it is one of the lowest prices on the market.""The licensing currently allows for host-based licensing, which is advantageous if you have a lot of data on a few hosts.""Cost is very appropriate for SMEs.""Nakivo has a good price-performance ratio.""As a free solution for a small environment, this is a great solution!""Talk to the sales department about all of the possibilities, as they will help you to find the best solution for your setup."

More Nakivo Pricing and Cost Advice »

"We have increased our scalability while being able to free up senior resources from recovery activities. I estimate our overall savings to about $20,000 per year.""Veeam is more reasonably priced than some competing products.""My understanding is that it is a fairly small price point.""Its software solution has a fee.""It is more expensive than other solutions.""If you tell Veeam that you're competing with, for example, NetBackup or Backup Exec, or Dell or Micro Focus then they may lower the price. They are very competitive.""I don't know what the costs are for sure, but I think that it's on a yearly basis.""Its price is reasonable for a big company or a big client. It is not too much. It is cheaper than VMware."
