Does anyone know if NAKIVO is planning to support Proxmox backup? I'm looking for an alternative to the built-in Proxmox Backup Server 🧐

I asked the NAKIVO sales team about Proxmox support recently. They said native support is on their roadmap but no ETA yet.

Darn, was hoping to test it out already 🥲. The native backups in PVE are okay but lacking some key features.

Yes, native support for Proxmox VMs is under investigation. However, you can already use agent-based backup for Proxmox. This should allow you to back up and recover Proxmox data the way you would back up your Windows or Linux machines. We’ll share the workflow here soon. Stay tuned!

I really like Nakivo but your support for Proxmox is shameful.

You do not support Proxmox, you just suggest that we install your Linux agent on it, which has in fact been compatible for a long time since it is a Debian Linux and which involves making a backup of the entire system in his outfit. Are you riding the wind of industry panic with VMWare? This does not support HV Proxmox and this backup should be classified under physical backup of a linux host.

But the worst thing is to say that this way of doing things is better than Proxmox Backup Server... I believe that you have not studied the competitor very well before trying to sell your product as "compatible". Your solution does not at all allow you to make a serious backup of VMs and CTs independently of the HV.

Dear @Argon

Thank you for your honest feedback. This helps us understand what our users need and how to improve our product moving forward.

We have tried to be as clear as possible that this is only an agent-based approach to backing up Proxmox VE, and wanted to inform users who may not be aware of this approach in NAKIVO Backup & Replication. 

As for the native Backup Server Tool, it may have some advantages but it lacks several important capabilities such as multiple backup targets (for example, cloud) or recovery options (for example, granular recovery of app objects).

We are continuously working on improving our software solution, and we are investigating native Proxmox support. Thank you once again for your input. Best regards

I sincerely hope that you can fully support Proxmox. I would prefer to use a Nakivo solution (which has satisfied us for a long time on ESX) rather than switching to Competitor.

I have been using Nakivo for my Nutanix to Proxmox migrations and it works well, but I have to extract the backup, move it to promox and then import it.

It seems to me that this is all just a matter of orchestration, and that it should not be that hard to add as a feature.  It sure would make recovery to Proxmox easier.
