Acronis Backup Cloud

Acronis is a great solution for organizations with an IT department or consultant. It works great for IT administrators that have multiple data centers so they can have a central backup location. Acronis would not be a great fit for organizations with low bandwidth or slow internet speeds

Spanning Backup for Salesforce

We are a small organization, so Spanning's pricing was particularly attractive (it is priced on a per-user basis and has no minimum). We view a backup application like Spanning as absolutely critical as we have spent dozens of hours constructing a custom framework and populating data. Spanning provides us this comfort.

  • Creating backup plans and schedules is simple.
  • Email alerts notifying administrators on backup failures.

Cons

  • The fact Acronis is an OS client base backup, which leads to more backup failures. Although most issues can be corrected with restarting services.
  • Recovering backups from the cloud(internet) is a lot slower then acessing local backups.
  • The backup error reports are not detailed enough to help administrators fix issues.

  • Thus far, Spanning has completely fulfilled all of our backup needs, and we are completely satisfied.
  • While we haven't needed technical support yet, we were told that this is conducted via email rather than via phone.

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.
