    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.

    Unitrends Data Center Backup and Recovery

    We have a traditional stack and pretty typical needs as a manufacturer. I have used and evaluated everything out there, but the Unitrends solution fits very well and was competitively priced. I would think if it fits us, it could fit anyone like us with a similar stack.
    Dan Watson | TrustRadius Reviewer

    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.
    Kevin Cooper | TrustRadius Reviewer

    Unitrends Data Center Backup and Recovery

    • It has fully automated and customizable dashboards that can run with less administrative attention.
    • It should be able to run on virtual machines or be deployed as a virtual machine within MS Azure or AWS.
    • It's AI-based ransomware detection helps to understand data characteristics and alerts for ransomware attacks.
    Anonymous | TrustRadius Reviewer

    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
    Anonymous | TrustRadius Reviewer

    Unitrends Data Center Backup and Recovery

    • Errors on backup jobs could be more clearly explained. As the administrator of the device for my company, I often don't know what caused an error, and can't tell from the error information what happened or caused the error.
    • Updates of the devices should have an automatic option. It takes to much time to do an update to the devices if updates haven't been maintained.
    • Shutdown and restarting the device should be available from the main UI screen to eliminate some time when doing updates or if you're doing some maintenance on the device.

    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.

    We have grown very attached to the Unitrends appliances and their use for recovery and other file restoration needs as well as data archival, data replication to other appliance and data migration to other servers or long term storage requirements. The appliances work well and the support for them is very good as well.

    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 have never used such an easy product that is stable and scalable like Unitrends. I have been running backups for MANY years. On premise, tape, disk, cloud, you name it. Unitrends is very flexible, stable and has incredible reporting features. It's nice when management requests a report and it takes you 5 minutes to run it and dump it to PDF. How can you beat that?

    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

    They're incredible, attentive, thorough. They make sure my issue is resolved and follow up. I'm usually behind on giving them a reply or an update. They have always gone above and beyond for me, and I'll continue to do the same for them.

    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.

    The Unitrends employees involved in the installation were very friendly and knowledgeable. A certain degree of hiccups can be expected during any installation but never shook my confidence because of the friendly and knowledgeable team that was assigned to my project.

    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.

    Unitrends Data Center Backup and Recovery

    Symantec Backup Exec was the primary tool used for backups for years. We also used Veeam for some Office 365/Exchange backups. Unitrends once configured and set up works very well against the competition. Backup Exec interface was more user friendly. The search tool for exploring backups was much better than Unitrends as well. Unitrends is much faster if you need to restore an entire VM or large file folders. Also once you have Unitrends all set up, it is very low maintenance, it just works. If something fails 9/10 it will correct itself on the next backup that is scheduled to run

    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.

    Once you exceed the capacity of the appliances, you have to forklift a new appliance. This is very expensive.

    Return on Investment

    Acronis Cyber Backup

    • Every times you restore a file, you see the value and the ROI of backup.
    • Backup is a great protection against ransomware, you can always restore files that has been infected.
    • When you want to go back in previous version of files, it can be life saver.
    Anonymous | TrustRadius Reviewer

    Unitrends Data Center Backup and Recovery

    • It has saved some deleted file server data for our business department.
    • We have lost some reports for the business department due to an overlooked setting that make the backup reports look great, but the server was not being backed up in reality.
    • Less anxiety for the IT department, we have backup plan and that is worth a lot to us.
