Likelihood to Recommend

Acronis Backup

It's excellent if you work with critical data that you cannot afford to lose. You would need above average knowledge of PC's to install, set it up and have it running though - or you need your IT team to do it for you. If you are a user without above average IT knowledge or an IT team to back you up, I would recommend looking for an alternative. I also wouldn't recommend it for personal use i.e if you need a back up for your photos, movies etc. Simply because there are cheaper options that will do that job well.

If a backup solution is needed without purchasing an appliance, the Intronis solution does a great job of backing up data and replicating to the cloud. The backup is restricted by total data, so any databases and other items are covered as long as it's under the total data cap.

Pros

  • It's really easy to automate a backup. You can choose where you want the back up to be stored (locally or online) and how frequent you want your backups to be. And then just let it run on schedule.
  • It's very customizable. You can choose what you want to back up, where you want to back it up to and how frequently your backups should run.
  • Recovery is (I have only had to do it once) really fast and smooth. I was able to get back to a working state without calling in for support and all my stuff was right where I expected it to be.
  • It is very reliable. Backups very rarely fail and are easy to fix when they do.

  • Centralized console for all Intronis backup software installations
  • Linked connection to the Barracuda Cloud Control console to manage essentials and backup appliances
  • Alerting from backup software can range from simple to complex as well as schedule options

Cons

  • It can be a little expensive.
  • You have to install an agent on your servers.
  • I did not have great luck with it backing up Linux servers.

  • Purchasing and activating Barracuda Backup appliances via Intronis complicates the process as appliances use the Barracuda Cloud Console for management.
  • Intronis Backup software could use some improvement on reliability as it requires massaging more often than the Barracuda Backup appliances.

Likelihood to Renew

Acronis Backup9.1
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

Acronis does not slow your system down when running backups as Symantec did. Some people have an issue with CPU's being impacted but overall it's not an issue.

Carbonite is a very good product but Intronis is much better suited for businesses. Acronis is a very comparable product especially as it does such a good job of image level backups of machines.

Return on Investment

  • We have found that this was a much more cost-effective solution than our Symantec platform. The fact we could purchase a single VM 'host' license meant that we could back up every VM on that host - irrespective of how many VMs there were.
  • The backup management can now be administered centrally - this allows easy remote access from technicians from anywhere within our business.
  • Separate and distinct users can also be configured to add a much needed security layer to the backup management process. This was lacking in the previous Symantec model we had.

  • This is a great solution for backups when a backup appliance is not necessary (or within economic range).
  • Local NAS replication can provide faster recovery of data in the event of a catastrophy.
