    Acronis Advanced Backup (formerly Cyber Backup Cloud)

    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.

    Microsoft System Center Data Protection Manager (DPM)

    Well suited for domain disaster recovery. I would avoid considering it for remote or non-domain disaster recovery. While it claims to have the ability, and we have used it this way for years, it often loses it's connection to the DPM server for no apparent reason, and has to be reconfigured. It doesn't always seem to work

    Cons

    Acronis Advanced Backup (formerly Cyber Backup Cloud)

    • 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.

    Microsoft System Center Data Protection Manager (DPM)

    • Remote and non-domain backups could be simplified.

    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.

    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.

    Alternatives Considered

    Acronis Advanced Backup (formerly Cyber Backup Cloud)

    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.
    Rob Rotundo | TrustRadius Reviewer

    Microsoft System Center Data Protection Manager (DPM)

    I think they're very good tools, but Data Protector has lots of client options, while with Microsoft Data Protection Manager the focus is windows. But, Microsoft Data Protection Manager is much better in a virtual machine (Hyper-V world) and windows servers. If this is your scenario, maybe Microsoft Data Protection Manager is your choice. But, if you need to mix between Windows and Linux servers, maybe Data Protector could be your choice also.
