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.

In situations where business continuity needs are high, ShadowProtect backups provide the ability to keep operations running with very minimal downtime, even in situations like crypto-locked data. If a backup server is set up in an environment to resume a live server from backup, this is even more helpful. In situations where clients don't care as much about quickly recovering their data, they can go without a solution like this.

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 don’t need support often, but when we do, the support has been strong. Sometimes it is hard to determine how to access support for the exact issue we are having. There are a decent forum and online ticketing system. Support for the cloud center seems to be provided only by phone, though.

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.

ShadowProtect SPX

We have servers dedicated to backups at our client sites so doing a wholesale hardware replacement is really tough. We also have our own cloud that is fairly young, so we don't want to move to a product that forces us into their cloud. We want to use both our cloud and grow into the vendors cloud as it makes sense.Both Veeam and Unitrends are very strong and we have chosen to switch to Unitrends. Veeam is ok but a bit tough to get into, and they don't have their own cloud so you have to source your own. In some ways, it is a bit clunky.Unitrends has their own cloud here in Canada and we have an option to use our hardware or their appliances; our cloud or theirs and it fits what we need
