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.

Until they get themselves together, I can't think of a scenario where their service is well suited. But, since that's too short of a response, I'll just have to say that their product isn't well designed. It starts a backup as soon as it is installed without any schedule set. I spent a day talking to my ISP and computer tech trying to figure out why my internet was messed up. Finally, I looked at their software and discovered it was backing up all by itself.

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

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.

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.

  • Using iDrive has taken too much of my time, having a negative impact on revenue.
