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.

Cohesity checks all the boxes when it comes to backups to an on-prem appliance as well as offloading to the cloud as an offsite backup. If you are after some meaningful analytics around backups for reporting when some additional work will be needed as the built-in reporting does not seem too intuitive or useful for those who want more than just an understanding of whether the backup succeeded or failed - we need to understand which, files, directories, partitions or VMs and the cause.

Pros

Acronis Cyber Backup Cloud

  • Single pane of glass for managing customer tenants
  • Quick and reliable backup recovery
  • Both onsite and offsite backup destinations are supported
Josh Spern | TrustRadius Reviewer

Cohesity Helios

  • Instant spin up of test and dev machines is pretty amazing. Our last solution claimed to do this but the backing storage was much too slow t be of use.
  • Uploads to the cloud are simple to set up and you can leverage low cost blob storage.
  • The cluster nature of the solution makes upgrades seamless with zero downtime.
  • The entire cluster fits in 2U of space -- we are saving 8U in our main datacenter and all 6U we previously had offsite.

Cons

Acronis Cyber Backup Cloud

  • No option for on premises hardware BDR. This means recovery restorations rely on self-supplied hardware performance.
  • License per machine can get costly if large number of computers or servers.

  • Replication performance - We needed support to provide some customizations in order to get our replication to work properly to another offsite cluster. We have been told that this issue is fixed in the newest general release.
  • Support - I would characterize the support as very good, but in a few instances I could tell my support agent needed to go higher up his chain to get clarification on features. I believe Cohesity is rapidly growing their support infrastructure as they put more hardware in the field.

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.

The user interface is very intuitive and gives a good overview of the status of your backup jobs. Its a full html5 environment which can be used in very browser and is available on every device through the use of private connections to the office. When going to implement Cohesity it is as easy as putting it in the rack and configuring your network. The environment does the rest. Once configured new nodes can be added by configuring them with the correct network.We use it in a VMware vCenter environment with vCloud Director on top. Since the latest version vCloud Director is an official source for your backups. This means that resoring to vCloud Director is a posibility as well. This makes the multi-tenancy and self service capability for our users an easy to use function. It can be implemented as a plugin within the Cloud portal for users to leverage.The path to vCloud Director support took a while but now that we are there I can give it an 8.

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.

They are always friendly, knowledgeable and helpful. The support is easy to reach and the reaction times are on point. Several times I had called with my system being down and the person who answered the call would require a support rep call me back. Some of these call backs would be 1-2 hours later. When needed, the support will scale up to deliver the right support for the right cases. When asking for detailed information about a problem they always help you to understand the problem and the underlying causes better.

The layout of how to implement consistency should be thought through beforehand. Changing it after the application is time-consuming.

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.
Rob Rotundo | TrustRadius Reviewer

Cohesity Helios

We looked at Veeam and although it's a great product when we priced out the licensing of both primary and disaster datacenters it became much too expensive.Rubrik is a great product and very similar to Cohesity. In the end, Cohesity had a secondary storage play as well as a better UI and better compatibility with lower tier cloud storage. We also like the way Cohesity did protection jobs vs Rubrik's virtual machine centric backup.CommVault is a product we still use today due to its massive features and the ability for bare metal backups. Cohesity does a much better job in the area of UI simplicity, virtual backup ease, and ease of management.

Return on Investment

Acronis Cyber Backup Cloud

  • It's been a great investment especially knowing our data is protected.
  • We no longer worry about upgrade storage hardware or devices.
Michael O'Riley | TrustRadius Reviewer

Cohesity Helios

  • Cost savings from having to purchase and manage physical tapes, as well as the man-hours to swap them in and out and store them off site.
  • Extremely fast recovery times, can bring up a restored VM back in our environment in under a minute. Get back up and running much quicker.
  • Simplifies our disaster recovery strategy.
  • Initial cost can be pricey depending on your storage needs.
