Acronis
The endpoint protection is fantastic. Being able to recover a single file on the fly has saved many customers hours of frustration. Long term recovery of O365 data has worked well. I bit more difficult but not Acronis Advanced Backup issue, it has been MS issues. Nothing beats on premise backup / recovery speed but, when it is not available, Acronis Advanced Backup gets the job done for bare metal recovery.

Excellent tool to create computer backup routines through automation by date, time and actions. Backups are not lost and updates are added to the file total. The centralized platform allows managing and also monitoring all computers and analyzing incidents and attempted attacks. This reduces our team's time and makes it easier to handle security incidents more efficiently. We really like the restore feature that can recover a computer in case of any kind of software failure or attack. It's fast and effective. The backup is all in the cloud and is stored in the AVG cloud with AES 256bit encryption and security. Anyway, I can say that it is a cost-effective tool that fulfills the promise but loses in the technical support that needs to be improved.

Pros
Acronis
  • Quick Virtualization. Acronis can virtualize most systems and get you back up in 15-30 minutes.
  • Encryption of Backups. You own the encryption key, and Acronis doesn't - so not even Acronis employees can get into your cloud data. Encryption meets all HIPAA requirements for data protection.
  • Easy to resell. You can create accounts for individuals outside of the company to allow them access to their backup console. It's very easy to set up, and clients are happy with how easy it is to use.

Cons
Acronis
  • They do not sell their product directly, so a reseller is needed - or third party website to process payments for them in order to download the product suite.
  • They have done away with stand-alone software purchases, and have moved to a yearly subscription-based model. It's affordable, but you never truly "own" the software now.

The cost savings we realized from moving to this software has us hooked - it does everything we need it to do on a very high level (virtualization, for example) and is very low cost for us.

Acronis
We seldom make use of Acronis support, but when we have they have been brilliant. All our engineers are Acronis certified, if they not able to resolve an issue, we touch base with our local Acronis supplier, Synapsys, who resolve issues 90% of the time.

We went with Acronis Backup Cloud because we're able to backup all platforms, not just PCs. And the price was good when it comes to all those options. It's a hard sell to clients, but when explained properly, the understand the cost of a good solution. It's like having good car insurance.

Return on Investment
Acronis
  • You have to watch for storage creep. The cost for storage can get away from you if you are not careful.
  • We have 2 cloud servers that we moved off Acronis storage and onto our own cloud server. That has reduced our long term cost by 23%
