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.

I like the idea of using this product for backups and cold storage. This allows for long retention times and a very low cost. The ability to quickly restore and the efficiency of all the products involved. I haven't come across scenarios where it isn't appropriate. I don't have a lot of experience so for me, it works well in my cases.

Pros
Acronis
  • 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.

  • Veeam Backup for AWS provides a comprehensive backup and disaster recovery solution for AWS workloads.
  • It's very easily integrated with the AWS cloud.
  • The Simple and intuitive user interface of Veeam Backup for AWS makes it easy to set up and manage backups for AWS instances.

Cons
Acronis
  • 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

Veeam Software
  • We have never managed to use Veeam for Azure or GCP. It works well with AWS.
  • A client needed a multi-cloud DR solution management but we had a security issue and could find a solution from Veeam Backup for AWS.
  • Usually, you need a dedicated resource to monitor when the number of workloads is high. That adds to the cost.

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.

Veeam Software
We have been using Veeam Backup for AWS for our cloud hosted solutions for the last several years and will continue to do so. The ease of use and available support staff make the learning curve for use nearly flat in our case and having Veeam Backup for on-premise workloads makes the decision easy.

Usability
Acronis
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.

The UI and the integration is good with the product. so far
has not encountered any major challenges while using the UI. of course, this is
user perspective. Few users suggested some different view that it should be
change father should have some different options but overall the feedback about
UI is positive and no major issues encountered by using the UI or forsake of
this usability.

We have not really noticed much difference and only notice it when doing work afterhours with our veeam being backed up. However, this is not the case as we do not do this often and hence we don't really have any real challenges for performance issues. Overall, we find that the performance is pretty good

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

One of the best and leading backup solution with central management for all Virtual Servers, Physical servers and Application level backup. Migrated from distributed backup solution running at each site to central VEEAM solution which has reduced overhead of backup administrator and improves the backup performance. Veeam team is very supportive in solution design, taken care of all our requirements and provided the cost effective solution.

The training provided online was good. The training was restrictive to users but was content was good and informative. The information provided was relevent and flow was maintained well. The Question and answers were good and supported well. Need to have more material provided with the training and will support users to adopt train the trainer approach.

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.

We were pretty happy with our implementation as it was simple to deploy and we followed the technical guide online with out much technical assistance from vendor support. We had also tested and streamlined a process based on our own documentation for our own company which was simple to follow overall for deploying into AWS for future instances

Alternatives Considered
Acronis
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.

I had looked at N2WS Backup & Recovery backup and disaster recovery solution for AWS environments. But while it provides similar backup and recovery capabilities as Veeam Backup for AWS, it lacks some of the advanced features such as instant VM recovery, file-level recovery, and integration with Veeam Backup & Replication.

Scalability
Acronis
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 have found that Veeam Backup on AWS is very reliable as we have had it running for about a year and only have had it failed daily a few times and that was due to outages or servers that was part of our maintainance. We also like how the testing and verification of our backups is an excellent feature to confirm we can restore to the previous backup

Return on Investment
Acronis
  • 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.

Veeam Software
  • The only thing is that you have to make sure you understand your AWS costs if your retention periods are not kept under control.
  • ROI is hard to prove until the moment you need to restore your workload.
  • Time-saving is something that comes to mind. Before Veeam, we used to spend/waste a lot of time verifying and testing our backup and restore. Veeam makes it easy with its SureBackup technology.
