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.

It's so easy to have running lists that constantly need updating to basically live in a folder on your desktop. Open and save it like a regular document and then it's synced company-wide! However, syncing issues and almost non-existent customer support means that you're basically on your own to figure things out by trial and error.

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.

  • Signs out unnecessarily.
  • Slow syncing (sometimes).

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.

Support Rating
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.

I've personally never talked to anyone from customer support, but my boss has. It took him almost 2 weeks just to get a response back and it wasn't very helpful. We basically had to figure everything out on our own.

Alternatives Considered
Acronis
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.

I have never used anything besides Blackberry Workspaces (formerly Watchdox) so I am not sure how it stacks up against them.

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%

  • Instead of sending large documents through email, we use this.
