Acronis Backup

We have used this to recover a folder that was accidentally deleted by a user. Brilliant and works fast too.

Cons

  • I would like to see Acronis provide virtual server operations in the product. In other words, every aspect of the Acronis product is cloud-based.
  • Supply the customer with full virtual backup, bring all functions to the cloud. No onsite hardware.

  • Additional fail-over functionality

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.

If I wanted to use just onsite storage the StorSimple device is already paid for.

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

I had so many issues with Unitrends appliance getting full and backups just failing. Switching over to Acronis has been such a hassle-free experience; I'm happy to have done so.

Scalability

Acronis Backup7.2
Based on 24 answers
I have Acronis setup to email me when a backup is successful or unsuccessful. When I get an unsuccessful email, I usually have to reboot the server for the Acronis program to "reconnect" as I call it and everything is fine for a while.

Return on Investment

  • We have saved lots of IT hours by re-imaging PCs this way.
  • Recovery of files is much faster so we have saved production on the user end and IT time.
  • Safety and the feeling of files being saved and easily being able to get them makes you feel secure. Can't put a price on that.
