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.

Veeam Backup & Replication

Should you have a virtualization infrastructure based on Microsoft Hyper-V or VMware vSphere, should you host several virtual machines some in production, some in acceptance, should you have a business model where you do regular upgrades and deploy new releases or just want to have a backup capability in case of business critical application requiring disaster recovery capabilities, should you keep backup footprint as small as possible, care for a community edition for smaller businesses and full edition for more corporate environment, this tool is for you.

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

Veeam Backup & Replication

  • It offers various backup types. If the infrastructure can handle the forever incremental or reverse incremental options, these are very efficient on space usage.
  • The interface is easy to use. There are a lot of options within the software, but it's never felt overwhelming to figure out and adjust job settings.
  • Restores are simple and offer great options. Even full VM restores are easy to do. File-level restores offer multiple ways to restore files, such as to a different location, or the same, then making copies of any collision files.
Adam Friedli | 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

Veeam Backup & Replication

  • It would be great to have better replication seeding so that replication jobs and backup jobs using the same VM could work concurrently. This feature is available but I have found it a little bit unreliable in past experiences.
  • It would be great to be able to see more information about a backup repository in the infrastructure tab such as disk quantities, raid versions and serial numbers.
  • Currently backup scheduling on copy jobs can be a little unclear to people without a reference model. A more guided wizard on creation of these jobs or more granular scheduling options could help less familiar users to navigate this portion of the console.

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.

I really have no complaints about Veeam Backup & Replication. Their service has been excellent and the cost is minimal in comparison to other services I checked out. Implementation wasn't simple and the Veeam Support team was there to help each step of the way.

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 Veeam Backup & Replication solution is up and running every time you need it as it was planned. In more than 3 years that we have been using the product every night, it might have failed or presented an error once or twice, so the availability percentage is almost at 100%.

To identify a bottleneck in the data path, Veeam Backup & Replication
detects the component with the maximum workload, the component
that works for the most time of the job. For example, you use a
low-speed storage device as the backup repository. Even if VM data is
retrieved from the SAN storage on the source side and transported over a
high-speed link, VM data flow will still be impaired at the backup
repository.

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.

Veeam has a pretty decent knowledgebase with articles relevant to all sorts of possible issues (I'v eonly had a few). There's also a forum with searchable answers. Beyond that, submitting a ticket or calling support is easy and they're prompt. We had a licensing issue once and they helped us resolve it within a few hours, even though it wasn't strictly critical.

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.

(I assume this question should say "Veeam" and not "Crownpeak Universal Consent Platform")Planning is key. Planning your backup schedule, size, data restore points, replication if you're doing that, &c. Testing is also important; make sure you back something up and then do a test restore. Set up alerts so you know if things aren't working (or even if they are, always good to know that too).

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.

Veeam Backup & Replication

I've also used a cloud-based backup system written by Datasoft however this was a low-volume system designed for single servers or desktops. As for Backup Exec, I much prefer Veeam for the user interface and the ease of management. BE always seemed to take a lot of time to maintain and would often have issues after working for months without.

Scalability

Acronis Cyber Backup 8.2
Based on 26 answers
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.

Scalability can be addressed in many ways, but there is a consequence:
Higher performance and smaller backup windows may put too much stress on
production storage, and therefore, on its performance and Availability
to production workloads. To reduce stress on production storage, version
9.5 introduces a new way of reading VM disks that is optimized for
enterprise storage.

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.

  • Being free of charge, it has saved us thousands on backup software.
  • It has saved a lot of time in that it is quick and easy to use for file-level restore.
  • It is an enterprise-level application that works on physical and virtual systems.
