    Acronis Cyber 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.

    Well suited to databases < 10TB. For larger than this, I would go with snapshots.

    Pros

    Acronis Cyber Backup

    • 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.

    Percona XtraBackup

    • Non-blocking backup : Backup process will not put any lock on the database.
    • Fast recovery : As it's a file level backup so it's quite fast in both backup and recovery.
    • Consistent backup : Xtrabackup always ensures consistent backup.
    • Easy to configure and Use.
    • Integration with clouds

    Cons

    Acronis Cyber Backup

    • 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

    Percona XtraBackup

    • The only feature that could use some improvement is partial backup restores. For example, I have a multi-tenant database at the schema level running on a single Percona Server instance. As a tenant grows too large for the share instance or becomes a noisy neighbour we need to move a the tenants schema to its own instance with minimal downtime, meaning that we would run the new instance as a replica with replication filters until failover. In terms of doing a consistent backup, there may be challenges and it is currently possible with XtraBackup, but it would be great if the process was simplified and ensured to be consistent.

    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 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.

    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

    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 Cyber Backup

    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.

    We have evaluated Mysqldump and MySQL Enterprise backup. Mysqldump is not a scalable solution. MEB is a paid and closed source. As we are truly open-source, we were looking for an open-source solution that was reliable and scalable. Xtrbackup has all the required features to fulfill our requirements.

    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.
