Acronis Backup

I actually think that it works great for most scenarios.

Mozy

Mozy Pro is a great fit, especially for small businesses that don't want to pursue a very large number of licenses, and don't have many TB of data to backup. The price per user is reasonable, and well within the budget of smaller businesses needing workstation backup solutions. For larger enterprises, there are other products that provide a lot more storage and better performance. We found Code42's product to be better for larger data backup needs.

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.

  • Full file backups
  • Automatic backups so I don't have to think about it. You can set it to a specific time of day or number of times you want it to backup throughout the day.
  • Restore is very easy, almost like one click.
  • You can log in to Mozy anytime to view files that have been backed up. Once I forgot to bring home a file I needed for a project I was working on, and I was able to log in and download it from the cloud very easily and quickly.
  • They have a Stash folder feature that I haven't used very often, but it's great and works the same way as a Dropbox folder or Google Drive folder would. It makes the files you save in it available immediately.

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.

  • Somewhat expensive for storage received - We observed that Mozy didn't offer a great deal of storage per user by default, whereas unlimited storage was available from other vendors at a reasonable price
  • No data deduplication - It would be nice to see data deduplication, especially since the amount of storage available was somewhat limited.
  • Slightly dated feel - The Mozy Pro interface was a bit dated when we used it, at least compared to competing backup solutions

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.

For the clients we have using this service, we fully plan to renew the subscription. However, that may change as our client's business grows and they have a need to add visualization and other server types to their environment

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 allows us to use lower cost storage hardware and a reasonably priced cloud storage. Datto is a great product, but the cost is much higher. IDrive was not able to backup every type of endpoint.

Mozy Pro is a great product for entry level and small businesses. It provides simple, effective backups with little to no technical expertise being required by the end users to benefit from it. I found that Code42's CrashPlan, was better when our storage needs increased dramatically, and users wanted a fresher interface than Mozy offered. We outgrew it, essentially. For small businesses, Mozy is tough to beat, but as you venture into the Enterprise market, Code42's product might be a better fit.

Scalability

Based on 24 answers
I have a Hyper-V environment. The licensing allows for me to add additional VMs without having to purchase more licenses. I am able to license each host. It's also easy to add additional cloud storage.

Return on Investment

  • I think we spend less time managing backups.
  • We are able to ensure that every computer is backed up. Previously it was more of a manual process for each user.
  • It has helped us meet our compliance needs.

  • Mozy has reduced the cost of implementing a DR plan while providing a high quality product that we can count on to perform.
