Acronis 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.

  • On-site and off-site backups. The data compression, deduplication and low resource usage is very nice and fast
  • Nakivo Backup works flawlessly with our Synlogy NAS backup system

Cons

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

Backup Exec, Symantec. The biggest difference is the ease with which we can recover data with Acronis. Backup Exec would fail or throw out errors often during a restore process and it made for a nightmare when users needed information quickly. The only feature that we miss is the ability to compare contents of multiple backups side by side.

Veeam needs a Physical Windows machine or VM running Windows, that also have to connect to a Backup Repository, was time-consuming to set-up and configure, I also had problems VM's locked-up during the backup process.

Scalability

Acronis Backup7.7
Based on 26 answers
Does the job. Covers large and small scopes. It is nice to know that as our company expands, there are multiple software options available to support our backup needs and to possible make the expansion easier trough being able to view multiple servers through one station. We have yet to scale what we have set but communication with Acronis support has made us confident that it will be simple.

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.

  • Positive impact on reducing licensing costs. Especially important for schools at the moment because of limited funding.
