Acronis Backup

I actually think that it works great for most scenarios.

Carbonite EVault

A key question is, "how much critical data needs to be backed up?". A follow-up question might be, "what impact would it have on your business and reputation if you were to lose this data or take more than a few days to recover?"If a company's data is not critical or valuable to the success of their business, then this is not a good solution.

  • The bare metal restore is the best I have seen from a product in a long time.
  • The backups are at the block level, after the initial seeding of backups the backups are quick because of the block level.

Cons

  • Not a lot of information about the reports unless you want them emailed.
  • Adding more to their knowledge base would be helpful.
  • The cost can be expensive if you have a lot of customers.

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.

I trust EVault's product. It has been battle tested and proven. A backup is only as good as its ability to restore. EVault will restore your data when you need it, period.

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

Much better interface and data recovery. Tech support is also much better.

We used Symantec before EVault and our backups were large and took a long time. We were not confident in incremental backups given the amount of data we have, so we needed something that would take a backup and then only grab the changes. Carbonite EVault does that for us.

Scalability

Acronis Backup7.7
Based on 26 answers
It is really very open and customizable in what you want to back up. From specific files to a complete system image, you can set it up the way you need to. You can also designate the backup location which is excellent because different people (or different sized organizations) would have different requirements. Overall, it is suitable for everyone, from an individual user to a large organization.

Return on Investment

  • Positive ROI in that at least three (3) times during the past year, users have been able to recover valuable data that may not have been replaceable by any other means.
  • The ROI was positive in that returns were seen the very first year we implemented it.
  • ROI is a difficult sell to middle and upper management... until they have a data loss or breach.

  • For a small firm, it has outsourced an important element to support our business continuity.
  • Email archiving was something we couldn't keep up with an EVault type of solution. We have more control of our file storage size than email, so we felt we were paying too much to archive spam and solicitations than important business communication. We went to a Google solution which was extremely cost effective and with more features.
