Acronis Cyber Backup

If you don't have to manage your client's email and their email archiver Acronis works very well. If you're looking for just a backup service for what's on a particular computer then Acronis is perfect. It is easy to use, so newcomers are not overwhelmed with features.It does not include as robust features as Barracuda and Cloudberry, but it does work well as just a backup.

Commvault Complete Backup & Recovery

In my experience, Commvault is best designed for large enterprises with sparse or segmented data deployments. If all of your data is similar, and sitting in one data center or cloud storage solution, it isn't cost-effective. In a word, overkill. I had a client that was looking for a backup solution for unstructured data in separate and air-gapped data sources. My cCmmvault rep could not offer a solution that was cost-effective and did not require multiple copies of the data, so storage made the solution nonscalable or cost-effective.

Pros

Acronis Cyber Backup

  • Image based backups. After the initial backup, the backups happen quite quickly. This allows for multiple backups per day.
  • We have different classes of data which requires different retention policies. Acronis makes that easy to manage.
  • Restoration can be done directly to hardware or to a VM. This makes it easy to migrate a physical server to a VM.

Commvault Complete Backup & Recovery

  • You can do backups of your servers, PC, and virtual environments in just one console.
  • The policy setup is very granular, so you can do almost whatever you need.
  • The compression and duplication really save you a lot storage space, which means less hardware.
  • The backup time are really good, so the maintenance window for each backup is fast.

Cons

Acronis Cyber Backup

  • The web interface is slow and can kick you off from time to time
  • I do find that the error messages are hard to decipher if/when a backup is unsuccessful. However, support is very good in helping out the solution
  • The user interface is not intuitive enough to find failures in backups or track logs with alerts or errors

Commvault Complete Backup & Recovery

  • The management console still uses Java and often has compatibility issues. I would dump java in favor or a HTML5 web console.
  • CommVault is a huge solution capable of managing the most complex environments. It could benefit from some simplification and wizards to make it more approachable to smaller IT shops.

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.

It is serving it's purpose and for companies that have a smaller IT staff, it is not time consuming to manage. Support for the product when needed has been very good and they are responsive when tickets are opened for support. The product is scalable so as we grow we can easily increase the resources as needed on the backend.

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.

They product is built very well with all the features and support to different types of data but as an end user it is not simple to explore the server. Not easy to setup the features and make it operational as compared to the other competitor in the market.

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.

The cooperation with the support team so far has been excellent. We will be informed on every problem. The first line will help very soon after the ticket is opened. They always meet the appointment. Every problem is solved as soon as possible. When talking with the support team, they immediately indicated that they had the knowledge, and knew where to look. If the problem goes beyond their help frame, the second aid level is immediately activated, the case is raised to a higher level and another call/help meeting is scheduled immediately. The nice thing about this company is that you can follow every ticket online.

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.

Plan well and make sure you collect all the required information and details before going for implementation. Organize it in step by step or break the setup into different modules to make it simple.

Alternatives Considered

Acronis Cyber Backup

I feel that Google Drive and OneDrive are suitable for backing up specific files or folders, but they don't perform well if you need a more rounded off solution that will back up other items as well. Also, since Acronis Cyber Backup is a dedicated utility, you get more control over how your backups are made. It also adds an extra layer of customization.

Commvault Complete Backup & Recovery

IBM TSM has Commvault beat in true HSM, but TSM is so complex to mange and run and is probably a tad lighter on resources, but not enough to warrant using it. NetBackup was the speed king for years, but after Symantec virtually abandoned the product their are years behind in innovation. The NetBackup UI is ancient and the reporting is weak. Veeam has a very specific target audience and that is the purely virtualized SMB what does not have much to protect. Veeam's deduplication is barely works and their compression is just OK. Veeam underlying disk usage is very wasteful and can quickly add up, Commvault is far more space efficient for the backup target than any of the competitors that offer deduplication

The ability to back up multiple servers from one source is a great tool to have for businesses that have equipment in different locations on the same network with a variety of software data to back up such as SQL, Exchange or a Files Server. You can decide to purchase individual server licenses as well if you would like to keep the process separate or have multiple sites where your data is housed.

Return on Investment

Acronis Cyber Backup

  • Every times you restore a file, you see the value and the ROI of backup.
  • Backup is a great protection against ransomware, you can always restore files that has been infected.
  • When you want to go back in previous version of files, it can be life saver.

Commvault Complete Backup & Recovery

  • With a successful DR test, Commvault has proven that our most critical systems could be recovered in a very short amount of time. Since these Tier One systems are the money makers, it is a relief to know they can be up and running within the SLA provided by the business.
  • With the large amount of client agents used for backups, we are backing up databases that we couldn't before with NetBackup. Right now, our environment is the most protected it has ever been.
  • Even though we have increased the amount of data we are backing up by a very large margin, the success rates have allowed us to work on other things than having to worry about backups not working. Productivity has certainly increased.
