Acronis

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.

Veeam Software

If you are looking for a product to back up your M365 suite, Veeam Backup for Microsoft 365 is both reliable and easy to use. Anyone who is familiar with their other products should be able to pick this one up and get going with no problem. Once your organization is set up, it is also easy to customize your backups and exclude certain users/mailboxes/etc. Their knowledge base also goes into fine details of any limitations, expectations, and requirements, and I would recommend going through everything before making a decision to make sure it covers your needs. I have not had any hiccups since implementing it a year ago, and all restores have gone smoothly and quickly.

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.

  • My CFO seemed to have lost a whole year of important emails. I simply restored them to his mailbox in a matter of minutes.
  • An employee left the company but an issue came up with a quote this person sent out. I could search his mailbox and got the quote as well as all communications from that customer.
  • It is nice to be able to search emails in various mailboxes without disturbing the user.
  • It is also nice to go back in time. Say they deleted those emails last month I can go back years if needed.

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

  • Veeam Backup for Microsoft 365 isn't 'multi geo' aware - this means we have to manually select resources to back up depending on their geo-location.
  • Veeam Backup for Microsoft 365 doesn't backup Private Channels users create in a Team - there are workarounds for this but it would be nice if this just worked.

Likelihood to Renew

Acronis

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

It fulfils all of the requirements my company has for a backup solution, and personally I find it the most suitable product I've ever used for backing up mailboxes, due to the ease of restoring items

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.

Veeam Software

Simple to deploy and manage, Veeam Backup for Microsoft Office 365 is a popular choice among both users and IT administrators. When the time comes, the switch can be easily restored. This is not only an email archive system. Software services outside of Windows 365 that can be replicated by Veeam include Teams and SharePoint.

Support Rating

Acronis

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

Veeam Software

Veeam Support is the best support in the business, this is for all their products. All interactions are with highly skilled support people who know their product and also the platform the product runs on. So when the issue is not really a Veeam issue but is more related to the Windows Server or SQL Server they will still provide solutions on how to mitigate the issue. This is a very refreshing approach...

Implementation Rating

Acronis

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.

Would have marked a 10 but the storage in AWS was very complicated. Would be nice to have more help/guidance connecting to external storage.

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 love how I safely backup all my organization data, Office 365 documents from Microsoft Exchange online, SharePoint Online, it seems to work well with on-premises, cloud and hybrid deployments. I also like how easy to connect to 0365 and start running the backup effectively. The UI is great and user friendly. Phenomenal Support Team.

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.

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

  • We retained a client who didn't want to rely on local backups for their tax retention
  • Our tax retention records are also backup to AWS, so there's that
  • We are certain that our clients are fully protected against ransomware or in case of mailbox removal by accident
