Acronis Backup

I actually think that it works great for most scenarios.

Veeam Availability Suite

Veeam Availability Suite is well suited for virtual environments. We specifically use it in our VMware environments for vSphere and Horizon View. If you also have some existing physical servers, you'll appreciate using the agent so that you can use one product to backup everything. If your environment is made up of only physical servers, I would recommend using another product.

  • Our Veeam Backup job works nightly to address the all-inclusive package for products including the operating system, application files, settings, and user data. We have other solutions for data backups, but this gives us the whole package.
  • Setting up the backups through the wizard was a breeze.
  • I get an email after the job runs that is simple and easy to ensure the backups are working.

  • The Web side of Veeam does need some tune up with more features.
  • The support site of Veeam does seem to be good but there is a lot of old, outdated material.

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

I used this in place of Backup Exec and was extremely pleased with it. Backup Exec is really confusing and the backups are unreliable. I loved replacing it with Acronis.

I have only used Veeam.

Scalability

Acronis Backup7.7
Based on 26 answers
For the majority of smaller companies, this solution is the best fit. If a company begins to have numerous servers and a large amount of data, this solution may no longer be the best fit.

Return on Investment

  • We haven't had any failures of the system yet, as our installation is fairly new. However, I'm confident the system will pay for itself after the first failure, as the software we are securing via Acronis is quite expensive.

  • Able to pull up logs from months ago, that are long gone on the production side, to see what cause/resolved an error is very nice.
