NAKIVO: An Affordable Backup solution for VMWare & Hype


If you are seeking a powerful and affordable backup solution for your virtual infrastructure, NAKIVO Backup & Replication is the backup solution you are looking for, NAKIVO B&R offers many cool features and has many licensing schemes to offer, I’ve tried the product in my lab and it seems to be good for what you are going to pay, so let’s start with the cool features:

  • The product comes in different flavors: It could be installed on Windows, Linux, Pre-configured virtual appliance (for VMWare), and could also be installed on NAS storage.
  • Agent-less, so ;you don’t need to install an agent in your guest OS to be able to backup and restore.
  • Backup jobs works over LAN, Hot add, and Direct SAN modes.
  • The Free ESXi Hypervisor from VMare is supported, other products require a licensed ESXi.

VMWare and Hyper-V support

current editions support VMWare, but in the upcoming edition version 7.0 both VMWare and Hyper-V will be supported.

My Opinion

I’ve tested this product in my lab and capabilities are acceptable as long as it’s relatively cheap if you compare it to other products in the market, it still lacks some features, but I can see that the developers are doing an excellent job here and this product will be very successful in the near future.
