Likelihood to Recommend

Acronis Backup Cloud

Great solution for small to medium size businesses. The cost per server instance can prohibit large growth or expansion as companies grow. This solution is great for a business that wants to back up a small number of devices including potential offsite storage via Acronis Cloud option. Would recommend but need to investigate all options in regards to number of endpoints.

Any disaster recovery solution can be handled by doubletake as well as server migrations. We have performed virtual to virtual, physical to physical, virtual to physical and physical to virtual migrations. There is no other product that can perform a continuous replication process with these different scenarios.I have yet been able to find a scenario where I found it to be less appropriate.

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.

Once through to support it is very good and they have assisted us through a number of issues. I don't always think that they provide a solution, more a workaround, but in a move situation where each copy is moving once, that isn't an issue. I'd be more concerned if we were using it to manage a DR scenario.

Alternatives Considered

Acronis Backup Cloud

Acronis is a great solution and provides a flexible amount of ways to backup and restore data. For software, it competes directly with Carbonite, ShadowProtect, Veeam, and Veritas. Most of these solutions are agent based and require licenses for each. Acronis does a great job for small to medium businesses and matches the features of the other software solutions.

I was not involved in the initial review of DT so I have nothing to compare too.

Return on Investment

Acronis Backup Cloud

  • Easy to configure and install as well as setup.
  • Restorations can be very quick if self provided hardware is powerful.
  • Can require switching products if company has large growth as more endpoints require large cost investment.
