Acronis Backup

I actually think that it works great for most scenarios.

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

  • 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.

  • 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

  • The cloud based backup and the local backup don't talk to each other. I can never get one answer on how much total cloud storage is being used by both the cloud managed endpoints and the locally managed endpoints.
  • Licensing could be easier to manage. Adding new licenses seems a bit manual.
  • Deploying agents doesn't always work from the console. I have to occasionally do a manual installation.

  • 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 is the best software only solution. Veeam has many flavors and does a superb (and more scalable) job of backing up data and replicating it offsite. Backup Exec is the oldest big player and has not done a lot to keep up with the competitors. Carbonite is a cloud-backup solution that does a good job but primarily pipes data offsite versus retain in-house.

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.

Scalability

Acronis Backup7.2
Based on 24 answers
For the majority of smaller companies, this solution is the best fit. If a company begins to have numerous servers and a large amount of data, this solution may no longer be the best fit.

Return on Investment

  • Peace of mind. It is good to know that at any time we can have information restored for our users within minutes. Previous software needed an extended amount of time and failed often.
  • Data backup and recovery have been a breeze. As previously stated, we have had no issues with the process of restoring data, unlike we had with previous software.

  • 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.
