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.

Great if your field requires copious amounts of paperwork, and you want to get rid of the clutter and stress of dealing with physical paperwork. With the size of our organization (about 8 people), we were borderline on whether the cost would be worthwhile, but even for our group we've found the enhanced workflow and eSignature function to be very valuable. I would think for groups smaller than ours the cost would likely not be worth it.

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.

  • eSignature integration has been a game changer four our organization. The simplification of obtaining client signature on necessary documents through this system has virtually eliminated our need for physically mailing documents to clients.
  • With our documents hosted by eFileCabinet, our team has increased capability to work from home/while on the road without needing to take along physically paperwork.
  • The search function that allows for on-page searching has been extremely useful when we're looking for older documents that we can't quite recall the title of.

Cons

  • SecureDrawer could use improvement, it doesn't feel completely intuitive to the user, sometimes I find myself confused or irritated while trying to set up someone, or re-map folders.

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.

Alternatives Considered

I believe Acronis has the easiest interface to control backups and restores. The backup solution that didn't work the best for us was Symantec Backup. The other backup solutions (Unitrends, Barracuda,and Veeam) have similar backup features as Acronis and are recommended. Uniterends backup is more advanced and can be complicated not for organizations without IT staff.

We find eFileCabinet to be more secure than the alternative products we were using at the time, around 5 years ago. The system is far more robust and better suited the large number of files we needed to store, plus the amount of security and restrictions we needed to be able to provide for our clients

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