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

Unitrends is great for file level recovery and database recovery. As stated previously, we have used Unitrends extensively for that and it has performed great. Unitrends is especially useful for physical servers as well. Unitrends full backups are slightly unnecessary now with virtual servers though. Most of our virtual servers now just have their VM's cloned on a schedule for backups. This means when a server goes down, we can just restore it from the clone and be back up and running within minutes. Unitrends still is useful though on those servers for individual file recovery.

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.

Unitrends Data Center Backup and Recovery

  • VM backups work very well with or without backup agents. We have a catch all job configured so that any newly added VM's are automatically backed up without any further intervention
  • Instant restores have saved the day a couple of times where the appliance spun up a recovered VM on the appliance itself in minutes and got our web presence back online with minimal downtime
  • The thing I like best with Unitrends is that they have the best customer support I've experienced. They get back very quickly with a resolution and with their support tunnels they will often fix any issues remotely without me having to do anything other than open a support ticket
  • Bare metal restores work better than any of the competitors during our evaluation process. I thankfully haven't had to perform any aside from a couple tests but it's great to know they can be relied on

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

Unitrends Data Center Backup and Recovery

  • I would like to see a feature where the Unitrends [Data Center Backup and Recovery] adds a newly created virtual machine automatically to a new backup schedule based on some criteria like a tag. As it stands today, auto selection is only based on name of the VM and the job is assigned to an already existing schedule.
  • Unitrends [Data Center Backup and Recovery] has a File Level Recovery feature. A single file can be recovered from a Windows server, without the need to restore the entire machine. I would like to have this functionality for Linux machines as well.

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?

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.

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

Unitrends was more involved to install and configure, but I have more confidence in its security with it being a Linux OS as opposed to just running on a Windows box. Acronis seemed to have more frequent failures on backups, even to local storage. It was also less configurable, especially in an environment with a dedicated 10Gbps backup network. Unitrends has no problem with multiple network interfaces. For the cloud, Acronis would have more failures that were very difficult to diagnose and repair. Their support was conscientious and responsive, but there was always a language barrier. Unitrends is not without its share of odd cloud backup snafus, but their support engineers are just as responsive and hard-working while being much easier to understand.

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.

We are a smaller shop (only 8TB) so we have not needed to scale yet but the explanation made it sound simple.

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

  • Just the fact that we have continual encrypted backups readily available 24x7 is great peace of mind.
  • I don't believe there is any true ROI until a company needs to use the Data Center which I would hope we never need to do.
  • Again, it isn't good that a client cannot manage their own archived data.
