Acronis Cyber Backup Cloud

Acronis Backup Cloud is suited for backing up Windows Servers. Downtime is greatly decreased by using their virtualization options. You will need a Hyper-V enabled computer to virtualize, though, but this can be one of your general-use workstations. A Windows 10 Pro machine with 16 GB of RAM would do it for you.Or, if you have Macs that need to be backed up, you can do that as well. You can grab either full volume images, or files/folders.I can't really think of a scenario that you would not want Acronis Backup Cloud, except pre-Server 2012 OS's, since virtualization isn't supported on those older systems.

Azure Backup

What we like most is how easy it is to effectively backup and restore virtual machines. It can be done in the following ways: complete restoration, disk, and volume mounting on the local computer. It is a well-established solution in the market and a secure cloud with high availability and security.

Cons

Acronis Cyber Backup Cloud

  • The fact Acronis is an OS client base backup, which leads to more backup failures. Although most issues can be corrected with restarting services.
  • Recovering backups from the cloud(internet) is a lot slower then acessing local backups.
  • The backup error reports are not detailed enough to help administrators fix issues.
Michael O'Riley | TrustRadius Reviewer

Azure Backup

  • Having an admin console that you can use to manage backup schedules across your network would be useful. Going machine to machine to check the current settings is ok but would be better in a GUI.
  • Maybe an agent utility installed on each workstation where the user can specify or customize the backup, perhaps just a set of folders, or ignore certain folders, would be helpful to eliminate garbage in the cloud.

The cost savings we realized from moving to this software has us hooked - it does everything we need it to do on a very high level (virtualization, for example) and is very low cost for us.

We seldom make use of Acronis support, but when we have they have been brilliant. All our engineers are Acronis certified, if they not able to resolve an issue, we touch base with our local Acronis supplier, Synapsys, who resolve issues 90% of the time.

As Azure Backup is a Microsoft product, you get support directly from Microsoft if the product is not working as intended. This is a benefit and a drawback at the same time. The benefit being that the product ties in with the Azure platform, drawback as Microsoft support is not always the easiest to work with, depending on the technician you are assigned.

Alternatives Considered

Acronis Cyber Backup Cloud

We went with Acronis Backup Cloud because we're able to backup all platforms, not just PCs. And the price was good when it comes to all those options. It's a hard sell to clients, but when explained properly, the understand the cost of a good solution. It's like having good car insurance.

Azure Backup

Azure Backup is based on the most secure and encrypted cloud storage facility available...Microsoft. They have been doing this a long time and have ironed out all the kinks, leaving only the good and dependable solution in place. Azure Backup is fast also, you do not have major delays and internet throttling happening from Microsoft, unlike nearly all other competitors. Have you ever tried downloading a backup you have in the cloud from any solution other than Microsoft Azure Backup? If you have, you know they throttle the speed drastically and it could take you more than an hour to restore just 100mb of data. Most server backups are over 50 GB, some of mine are over 1.5 TB. With those slow speeds it could take weeks to recover your system just because you are waiting on the download to finish. Those companies then offer to send you an external drive with your data on it...but for a major price tag! You should not have to pay extra to get your data back and should not have to wait more than an hour to get it all downloaded either. Microsoft does not throttle Azure Backup downloads and I can almost guarantee that they have faster speeds than you have, meaning that you will be able to download at your maximum internet speeds and recover your systems quickly!
