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.

If your business (or your clients) use QBO using Rewind is an absolute no-brainer in my book. For a modest monthly cost (less than $10 per month per QBO file) you get cheap insurance against losing data and having to spend endless hours re-creating everything. When we use QB Desktop we back up the client QB files for the same reason. Now that things are increasingly moving to QBO we have the same option through Rewind.

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.

Rewind Software Inc.
  • I like that it has an organized and very simple-to-use user interface, with a very striking and colorful appearance.
  • The one that allows you to make backup copies in an automated way, leaving aside the long manual process and its wait.
  • The one that grants an incredible rewind function that differentiates it from the rest and gives the advantage of reestablishing any unwanted step or change that is not to our liking.
  • The one that is a software that not only covers the creation of backup copies but also provides the protection of these thanks to its encryption.

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 interface is a bit slow; it would be nice to have something much more interactive and visually appealing. Not only that, but platform loading times in general can be slow. However, making copies or rewinds flows daily.

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.

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.

Trello only has manual backup options, which only save raw data in the form of spreadsheet exports--which would be a nightmare to rebuild into new boards! Other Trello backup options were similar. Rewind is the only one I've found that can recover the boards as they were at specific moments in time (i.e. right before losing data).

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%

  • I feel a lot more liberated to experiment with different page layouts and styles without worrying about causing any damage to the shop.
  • With the ability to rewind and restore to a previous backup, we have more peace of mind while experimenting with new functionality.
  • I don't have to worry about remembering to back up because it does it for me on a regular basis.
