Acronis Backup

Acronis is well suited for a company that has at least one server to back up. The program will work with a wide variety of operating systems including Server 2012, 2016 and 2019. This program will also allow you to backup multiple servers from one host device. It will also works with Linux OS.

Solarwinds Storage Resource Monitor

It is well suited for our medium-sized environment where we have different storage arrays some have better performance than others. I can't imagine that it would be needed with a small environment where you only have 1 storage array or are not monitoring performance of the servers on different arrays.

Cons

  • The UI can be hard to navigate for new users
  • Acronis sometimes does not show progress during a clone so it's hard to tell the status

  • The list of devices covers the most popular, but adding more types of devices is always helpful
  • Device types make it difficult to connect some times (on the vendor side) but the product does a good job, configuration could be easier for setting up devices.

Likelihood to Renew

Acronis Backup9.1

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

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.

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

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

It works very well with Windows products, I selected those products because of the ease, comfort, and support.

We have a full suite of SolarWinds products and did not evaluate other options for a full package. For selective monitoring we log into the devices, but this has made that much easier as we have a dashboard rather than logging into devices one at a time.

It automates discovery of all devices and virtual machines. No need for multiple licenses in a VM environment.

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.

  • With SRM we have proactively monitored devices to stay ahead of data growth
  • SRM makes monitoring of internal asset condition much easier
  • SRM make monitoring of live statistics much easier.
