Pros: Nakivo is incredibly simple to use. The interface is very user friendly and intuitive and it guides you through each tasks. It is quick and efficient. Support has been excellent, nakivo provides regular updates and they are regularly improving the software with new features. You are able to perform full vm backups, replication, restore individual files, mount hard disk from a vm backup to a running vm and browse full hard disk, and the list goes on.

Cons: No real cons with Nakivo, although realtime replication and the ability to perform file/folder level backup would be great.

Overall: Nakivo is a real time saver. I scheduled backups of my vmware environment, and also replication to an off sight server. and all I do is monitor the nakivo email notifications sent after the job tasks. It's been a real load off my shoulders.

Anyone looking for a simple, reliable backup and replication solution for vmware or hyper V, look no further.

Nakivo Backup and Replication make me administration VM backup become easy.

Pros: -Nakivo Backup is easy to use

-Complete solution for backup for example vm backup , back copy, and flash vm boot.

- Competitive price for backup solution

Cons: - network system will need to improve. Because i have found several degredation of need speed if source Backup and target or repository in different segment network.

Overall: My company is a IT consultant for virtual infrastructure. We have solve several problem with Nakivo.

Before using Nakivo , we have problem with backup and take a long time to backup a VM.

With Nakivo backup process is more easy and reliable. We have recomend Nakivo to our Customer.

Right now almost my customer using Nakivo on top of Synology NAS. With Combination Nakivo and Synology make backup more easy and powerfull. Thank you Nakivo.

Pros: This software is easy to setup and use. The price is competitive and can be afforded also in very little company or offices (SOHO) assuring security at low cost.

The availability of the transporter module with most of NAS system (also SOHO) let the company work also with low cost devices. The option to have a flash VM boot reduces the RTO and the forever incremental backups (very fast) reduces the RPO.

Cons: No availability for Citrix XEN and a full screen interface (the calendar would be more readable).

Pros: No need of Windows Machine to run it

Very low failure rate

Best price/performance on the market

Cons: I haven't found any cons using Nakivo in this years.

Overall: I really like that I don't need a Windows Machine to run it because I'm using it on a virtual applicance or even directly on a NAS device.

I've migrated a lot of clients to Nakivo in the last 3 years from Veeam or other Backup software, and I will never come back.

Nakivo have a lot of great features and the main Pros is that with Nakivo we have a very low failure rate for backup and replication at customer's site.

Definitely reccomended.

Pros: easy to deploy, in my case as VMware appliance

clear and easy to use User Interface

simple configuration

covers all storage options I need (SMB and local USB disk)

ease of customization. It is Linux, so installing e.g. Zabbix agent on it for monitoring is a breeze

good reporting and email notification system

incremental backups are fast and light

Cons: Nothing in my application.

Overall: It gives much needed piece of mind when managing vSphere infrastructure.

Pros: NAKIVO works for VMWare free eSXI edition, along with full Hyper V 2012, 2016 support.

Works with our QNAP NAS, small footprint, very fast installation. Infrastructure configuration is done through the "gear" icon, and once you are set, you can easily create backup jobs for your VM.

Backup job interface is ahead of its time, dashboard like and shows what we need to see.

Cons: Customer support needs to be more reactive (not that we need them :) ).

At least for v7.4.1 it requires Linux transporter to do file level recovery from backed up Windows Dynamic Disks.

Overall: We are still running legacy software for which latest version of backup software no longer support. Also we have issue with backing up VMWare free eSXI.

I first saw and try NAKIVO from our QNAP NAS app store. Install, configuration is a breeze and within 30 mins I am already backing up my servers.

Simply amazing first time experience, you can call it love at first sight :)

This software just works. Backup/replication of EC2 instances. Very easy to use.

Pros: No constant fixing of backups as with other software. Can run on Linux. Not a lot of requirements to get/keep it working. Support & sales team is great.

Cons: I don't have anything bad to say about Nakivo. It's a breeze to recover an Ec2 instance. I came from internal backups environment using HP data protector which was a maintenance nightmare.

Overall: Easy EC2 backups in AWS

Pros: I like to Install this Software on a QNAP oder Synology. In case of a Full Restore all i need is have the Appliance online and recovery can start.

Cons: Had no Problems so far, beside that sometimes the autoadd feature is not wanted.

Overall: The main Benefit i experienced was, running Nakivo in a HW Appliance, (QNAP, Synology) i could very easily restore my complete VMware Environment.

Pros: Undoubtedly the support.

I've started using this product since the 3.9 version (2014) and I've had two major issue, one related to an update (solved in few minutes after the support team sent me the patch) and another, far more complex, related to a messed up critical backup.

In the latter the support assisted me remotely and they've solved the problem in few hours.

Cons: I've found somehow tricky sometimes the configuration of the backups. But 'till now I've always solved the issues I've had so maybe was only a lack of knowledge of mine.

Pros: The software is very easy to use and install.

The company offers an excellent support and provides a step by step live demo.

The software is feature-rich and in constant development. Updates are easy to install.

The software has a built-in online support chat for immediate assistance, even during the trial period.

Cons: They use sales reps to resell their product, which, in our case, increased the list price by almost 25%, mainly due to extra taxes. However, their support team promptly provided an alternative to us.

Overall: So far, our experience has been excellent. We do not have anything to complaim about their product or their support staff.

Pros: Easy of use and deployment, value for money

Cons: Robustness: I got frequent corrupted points on backups, until we discovered that it was due to a time conflict between 2 jobs. The app should be robust enough to inform about that, and in case of error it should guide you better to solve it (even when it is not their own fault)

Overall: We solved our Virtual Machines backup needs easily, with very little maintenance job, though its implementation can be a little time consuming depending on your needs, maybe because of their youth. But the product is improving constantly and they are a must, in my opinion, in any company from 0 to 500 employees, no need to go with Veeam or others.

Pros:

Cons:

I always do proof of restoration of VMs due to contingency, once I restored a VM from windows and it did not look good but it was an exceptional case

Overall: easy use of the application and good graphic interface

Pros: Pretty much everything. Nakivo is easy to use yet very powerful. It turns your NAS into a backup appliance.

Cons: The only con at the moment is that you cannot back up a physical server, but I heard that this feature will be part of the next release.

Overall: I am a newcomer in the VM world and I was looking for software that would help me back up my VMs safely and easily. When I came by NAKIVO, I could not believe how quickly everything was installed and ready to use.

Pros: The price is simply amazing for what it does. We have been using a much more expensive solution for a while now and Nakivo just fits our needs better at about 1/10th of the price.

Cons: At this point, there is very little that I don't like. I wish there was a way to replicate to a NAS drive rather than replicating only to VMware, but there are many advantages to replicating to VMware.
