    Acronis Advanced Backup

    Acronis Backup Cloud is suited for backing up Windows Servers. Downtime is greatly decreased by using their virtualization options. You will need a Hyper-V enabled computer to virtualize, though, but this can be one of your general-use workstations. A Windows 10 Pro machine with 16 GB of RAM would do it for you.Or, if you have Macs that need to be backed up, you can do that as well. You can grab either full volume images, or files/folders.I can't really think of a scenario that you would not want Acronis Backup Cloud, except pre-Server 2012 OS's, since virtualization isn't supported on those older systems.

    Bacula Enterprise

    Regardless of the size of data and your company, Bacula Enterprise can be used as a solution to manage backup jobs and also as a solution for disaster recovery. In addition, the cost of the tool is also a major attraction, as it was one of the great motivators for the adoption of Bacula Enterprise. A scenario where it is not advisable is if your company does not have a team with some experience in Backup solutions.

    Cons

    Acronis Advanced Backup

    • No option for on premises hardware BDR. This means recovery restorations rely on self-supplied hardware performance.
    • License per machine can get costly if large number of computers or servers.
    Derek Schroeder | TrustRadius Reviewer

    Bacula Enterprise

    • Our team always points out the same problems, I believe that, today, is our biggest complaint: The interface (both graphical and the CLI) still needs improvement.
    • There is no mobile app to manage backups and restores from smartphones
    • Manual installation is time consuming.

    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.

    Easy to use, proactive and effective customer support, and simple deployment method. The high configurability is what makes this tool so effective for my organization - at no point do I have any issues of trust as to the restorability of a fileset. The GUI provided gives clear actionable reports as to the effectivity of the jobs performed.

    This is a hard question. Usability for whom? For someone who is very comfortable at the command line and willing to put in the time to learn Bacula Enterprise's configuration syntax, it's very usable. Just don't expect to be an expert immediately.

    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.

    They're excellent, fast to respond and knowledgeable. I can't fault the support provided at all. On every occasion that we've had a need to contact them during our evaluation, installation, and use of Bacula Enterprise, they've always given us the help that we required. The responses they provide are detailed and we always feel that they've taken the time to read and understand our issue and give a full and personalized answer.

    The professor understood the tool very well, it was a fact that he had mastery over the system and knew what he was talking about, clearing up all doubts and passing on all the necessary knowledge so that we could handle Bacula Enterprise in our organization.

    Alternatives Considered

    Acronis Advanced Backup

    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.

    Bacula Enterprise

    I used CTERA almost from the time they started up. In short, it was very easy to use but configuration was limited; and in the end the agents were troublesome and I could not restore files. They had one person on staff who was terrific with tech support, when he left support became difficult and I lost confidence. Acronis was my first experience with a bare-metal recovery operation and it was terrific. Really saved the day. I would still be using it except the licensing was difficult and expensive and the software wasn't Linux friendly.

    Return on Investment

    Acronis Advanced Backup

    • It's been a great investment especially knowing our data is protected.
    • We no longer worry about upgrade storage hardware or devices.
    Michael O'Riley | TrustRadius Reviewer

    Bacula Enterprise

    • Our Disaster Recovery policy in regards to backups and archiving is made possible because of our use of Bacula Enterprise.
    • TCO is very low as the yearly subscription is very competitively priced. Management of the software is very low so we don't have to spend hours maintaining our backups.
