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.

Paragon Hard Disk Manager

The service provided by this platform in data storage and file transfer is highly recommendable. It is easy to learn how it works giving more consumers an opportunity to access and use it without ant difficult. You can customize the storage spaces to get smaller units that be used for file storage with backup plans. It has the capability of compressing data into small datasets that can occupy small storage spaces.

Paragon Hard Disk Manager

  • When you have a hard drive that is physically failing with CHKDSK errors, it will often somehow still clone it and make it work on the new system.
  • It can take a computer's operating system installation and make it work on dissimilar hardware.

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

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.
