    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.

    SmartVault

    SmartVault sends out a cover letter with the tax returns that includes a link for them to download their tax returns, avoiding the insecurity of an email attachment. It does not include a statement retrieval feature but does work very nicely with a third-party app called FileThis. The majority of the users in the office have not been able to install the Outlook plug-in due to "a certificate error." In five years, SmartVault has not addressed this issue.

    SmartVault

    John Griffing | TrustRadius Reviewer

    Cons

    Acronis Advanced Backup

    • 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.
    Derek Schroeder | TrustRadius Reviewer

    SmartVault

    • They have cut back on support as have many SaaS companies recently.
    • The documentation can sometimes be a little difficult to follow.

    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.

    Reaching someone is more difficult than it should be. Also, they don't take possession of known issues always suggesting it is a local PC issue in initial conversations. That, of course, can be frustrating for the end-user.

    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.

    SmartVault

    Our due diligence on this application was a bit week. We read the reviews on its closet competition (Sharefile) but did not actually enter into a trial with them. We would definitely suggest that potential subscribers do so.

    Return on Investment

    Acronis Advanced Backup

    • It's been a great investment especially knowing our data is protected.
    • We no longer worry about upgrade storage hardware or devices.

    SmartVault

    • Expensive product but the ROI is still excellent.
    • Can't see how any accounting firm could get by without it.
