Comparison Summary
Question: How does Nakivo compare with Veeam Backup & Replication
Answer: Nakivo is my favorite backup software. Below are the main benefits of Nakivo compared to Veeam 1. Low cost. 2. Backup storage with global deduplication (this is the main requirement of a backup solution. For Veeam, you need to pay for additional deduplication storage). 3. NAS appliance plugin (the backup solution can be fit on one NAS box storage. No need for any backup server). 4. The backup server resource requirement is too small. 5. No Windows license needed. Nakivo can be deployed via a provided Linux appliance/Linux-native installation. Wira.

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.""Most valuable for DimenXional Cloud is the API provided by Nakivo which allows us to implement the software in all types of solutions.""The price is much lower than competitors that do the same function.""This enables us to do quick granular file recovery as and when required but also to do whole-site relocation in the case of a total loss scenario.""Nakivo offers direct support through the graphical interface and this is great to have if you need quick help.""The user interface is good, and it's user-friendly. I also like its usability with hyper-convergence products like Nutanix and others in the data infrastructure.""Cloud integration is valuable because the ability to not only backup locally, but to the cloud, has been a great addition to the already fantastic product.""The chat functionality with Nakivo Support in the web interface is very unique and we love it."

More Nakivo Pros »

"I consider the solution's technical support to be excellent, perfect.""The technical support is good.""Its stability and scalability were the main reasons for going for this solution. It is highly scalable, and its stability is also powerful. It has a friendly interface, and its monitoring and performance are the best in the market.""They provide good technical support and we are satisfied with the support we have received.""What I like most about this solution are the simplicity and the price-performance ratio.""The solution offers the normal benefits of a virtual machine versus a physical, actual machine. It doesn't take up space, for example.""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.""Good compression when storing data."

Cons
"It would be interesting if it were possible to integrate a mobile app to monitor the system in real-time.""It would be good to have some Oracle database backup capability from the Linux OS in the next release.""I would love to see BackBlaze B2 implementation in the future, as that would be our preferred cloud destination, but Amazon and Wasabi are both very great choices in the meantime.""Due to the fact that we are HP and Fugit partners as well, it would be nice if Nakivo would allow support for HP and Fugit storage.""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.""While the solution provides mostly what we need, it would be ideal if there were some additional feature capabilities for the API.""There are some errors requiring support to correct and bugs and glitches should be addressed.""It would be helpful to be able to have a custom footprint so that only the required features are installed."

More Nakivo Cons »

"They fixed everything that I was hoping for. It is pretty good. There were a few things in 9.x that I was wishing for, and they came true in version 10. We were looking for retention without having to make a copy job. We're getting ready to migrate m365 to the cloud. I haven't dived into it to make sure, but I wish the m365 backup would integrate into the current console so that we don't have to use two different consoles.""The web interface could be more visual.""Even though the speed has improved over the years, I think that there are some instances where it still takes a while.""The initial setup was not straightforward at all.""Multithreading of health check process: This can take too much time to process on large jobs and/or large VMs.""Its licensing needs to be improved. Its licensing has become complex since last December. They have changed the way the product is licensed, and there is a lot of confusion. Sometimes, when a new version comes, it seems that it has not been tested enough because I usually find some bugs in it. It could also have more integration with other virtualization products, such as desktop virtualization products and open-source virtualization products.""I would like a solution for SAP systems to be included.""The Veeam backup application interface is application-based and not web-based."

Pricing and Cost Advice
"Regarding the licensing, I would advise speaking to the Nakivo representatives and you can get the best option for your environment.""The licensing model is very affordable compared to competitors, with a good quality-to-cost ratio, and the software is quite simple and fast to setup.""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!""This product is cheaper than other big rivals.""The licensing currently allows for host-based licensing, which is advantageous if you have a lot of data on a few hosts.""I think the price is competitive. However, for some projects, it can be a bit much for price-sensitive small businesses."

More Nakivo Pricing and Cost Advice »

"Its price is reasonable for a big company or a big client. It is not too much. It is cheaper than VMware.""Veeam is more reasonably priced than some competing products.""It is always nice to get products cheaper. Technically, it saves you a lot of money. If you wanted to buy the same functionality out of vSphere, you would spend thousands to essentially get the same functionality.""When I did a tech refresh, we took out a subscription for the coming five years.""This product is not cheap, but it's well worth the cost.""It's expensive and costs about 4000 a year.""We are happy with the pricing and we pay for licensing on a subscription basis.""Its software solution has a fee."

The functionalities are almost the same. Nakivo is available at a lower price.


If you don't need advanced storage integration there is no difference.

Nakivo offer almost the same functionality of Veeam at a lower price.

They have the same functionality except that Nakivo allows the backups to be immutable, thus, providing protection against malware (backups cannot be moved, deleted or changed) It has 1/3 of the price but sometimes there is a direct deal.

For me, Nakivo has all Veeam features and also supports Oracle RMAN backup. 


Nakivo has a very flexible deployment compared with Veeam (it supports the deployment using Windows and SQL only). It can be installed on NAS, VA, and many more. Most of the things have a reasonable price.
