Acronis Backup

I actually think that it works great for most scenarios.

Rubrik

Rubrik is a superb solution for virtualized infrastructure, as it provides great integration and automation tools for virtual machines/cloud backups.Supporting heterogeneous physical infrastructure with legacy components requires a good deal of research with Rubrik.

  • When they added the VLAN functionality the management interface responds on all IPs, we should be able to lock management to specific interfaces.

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

We found the pricing, pre-sales technical support, customer service, billing, and post-sales technical support to be above par as compared to almost all other enterprise backup solutions. Some were equal or better in one or more areas, but no one had as high of marks as Acronis across the board

Only one of the other options evaluated made data protection easier and supported the majority of things running in our environment in that one platform and that was Cohesity. We finally chose Rubrik over Cohesity because of the other customers reviews as well as the company business model.

Scalability

Acronis Backup7.2
Based on 24 answers
It appears to be very scalable. It has handled everything that we could throw at it, and believe me, we hit it hard during our initial testing phase. It has performed like a champ day in and day out for several years now. Even through upgrades, we have been able to handle our workloads seamlessly.

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.

  • It replaced a legacy backup platform that needed 1-2 hours daily of monitoring and nudging to keep working. It just works now
  • It consolidates storage, backup software, and compute.
