Acronis 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.

Well Suited: Large and complex environments with high retention and varied data sets. If VTL is desired this solution is amazing. Less Well Suited: Highly virtualized environments who need a simple turn key solution with fast recovery times.

Pros

  • Quick Virtualization. Acronis can virtualize most systems and get you back up in 15-30 minutes.
  • Encryption of Backups. You own the encryption key, and Acronis doesn't - so not even Acronis employees can get into your cloud data. Encryption meets all HIPAA requirements for data protection.
  • Easy to resell. You can create accounts for individuals outside of the company to allow them access to their backup console. It's very easy to set up, and clients are happy with how easy it is to use.

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.

Not a simple solution to use and one with a lexicon and vocabulary you will need to be familiar with in order to use the product to its potential.

Alternatives Considered

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.

Return on Investment

  • 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.
