    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.

Alerting on backup job success or failure. Support is could be a little better, but it is adequate.

    Pros

    Acronis

    • 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.

    Cons

    Acronis

    • The web interface is slow and can kick you off from time to time
    • I do find that the error messages are hard to decipher if/when a backup is unsuccessful. However, support is very good in helping out the solution
    • The user interface is not intuitive enough to find failures in backups or track logs with alerts or errors

    • None, it provides all the functionality we require.
    • Improve licensing costs.

    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

    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 Rating

    Acronis

    I only got one issue resolved for more than 20 cases open. The escalation is ineffective. Most of the time, I have the feeling that I know the solution better than the support technician. Overall, case management is time-consuming, as our resolution rate is really low

    Implementation Rating

    Acronis

    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

    We've looked at SolarWinds, Veritas, etc. but none of them had the right combination of features, price and ease of use when compared against Acronis and its ease of implementation, setup and recovery options. We didn't like the wait time for recovery with some of the others and being able to quickly get a machine back entirely was important to us.

    Not as polished as Veeam, but a lot cheaper when backing up data from over 10 servers. Otherwise, if you are backing up just one server, and don't need much in the way of support, the Veeam Community edition is a very cost-effective backup solution. When comparing the support and cost of Novabackup for a small to mid-size business, it is a very reliable solution.

    Scalability

    Acronis

    The ability to back up multiple servers from one source is a great tool to have for businesses that have equipment in different locations on the same network with a variety of software data to back up such as SQL, Exchange or a Files Server. You can decide to purchase individual server licenses as well if you would like to keep the process separate or have multiple sites where your data is housed.
