Acronis Backup

I actually think that it works great for most scenarios.

Cohesity

Works great for replacing old backup technology with a modern, extremely fast and reliable hyperconverged platform. No more swapping tapes! Offsite storage to the cloud with easy recovery and ability to spin up in the cloud or restore back to the cohesity environment. Deduplication and compression technologies are integrated so you don't waste any space.

  • Cohesity is working on this, however, I would like to see a more expanded KB section.

Based on 2 answers
We have renewed our subscription over the course of a few years now. We used to use Backup Exec and it was tedious and difficult to obtain our backups when needed. Acronis just fits our environment style and the way we prefer to do business and use our third party software.

Usability

Acronis Backup8.2
Based on 1 answer
I give it a rating of 9 do to its ease of usability. It's ease of understanding how to setup - form - fit - and function. I have no sorrows when having to login to the console in order to setup a new backup schedule or retrieve and recover lost data.

Support

Acronis Backup8.2
Based on 1 answer
We have only had to contact support a hand full of times. The reason for this 9 out of 10 is do to how quickly and cooperative they have been on the rare occasion we needed to chat with them about our small questions or queries with potential issues do to the nature of our business.

Implementation

Acronis Backup9.1
Based on 1 answer
I don't have any real key 'insights' per say except that it wasn't difficult at all, and do not be afraid to dabble in its tools and settings. It is quite intuitive with built in common sense. I cannot say enough good things about our companies experience when using this backup software.

Alternatives Considered

It works very well with Windows products, I selected those products because of the ease, comfort, and support.

We have been using NetBackup for many years. Cohesity is far less expensive and more simple. We will be able to bypass to the maintenance costs and service costs.
