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.

Unitrends Recovery Series Backup Appliance

For a purely virtualized environment, I love it. I recommend using it with fast storage if you want to benefit from the Instant Recovery feature. If you have slow storage like a USB disk drive - Instant Recovery may not be fun for you.

Pros

Acronis Cyber Backup Cloud

  • Full image and bare-metal recovery backups for any physical or virtual server.
  • Physical to virtual and other tools built-in to make conversions / recoveries easier and more efficient.
  • Ability to spin up servers on the fly from recovery media.
  • Options to backup on premise as well as offsite to Acronis cloud.
Derek Schroeder | TrustRadius Reviewer

Unitrends Recovery Series Backup Appliance

  • No licensing! Any new operating systems or file systems added to the backup appliance can be added on the fly without having to reach out to a sales rep.
  • It supports nearly every operating system for backup and restore purposes.
  • Built in bare-metal backups for Windows allows you to restore a virtual machine to a physical box if needed, and vice versa.
  • VMWare instant recovery allows the appliance to become a datastore for virtual environments in a pinch.

Cons

Acronis Cyber Backup Cloud

  • 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.
Michael O'Riley | TrustRadius Reviewer

Unitrends Recovery Series Backup Appliance

  • If you want to recover something from exchange, that is a separate piece of software. Wish that was integrated.
  • There are four extra HD slots on our appliance that you cannot expand to. Would be great if they allowed the appliance to be filled and re-striped.
  • A little annoyance is that the appliance doesn't have a faceplate. That could just be my issue though.

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.

We have grown very attached to the Unitrends appliances and their use for recovery and other file restoration needs as well as data archival, data replication to other appliance and data migration to other servers or long term storage requirements. The appliances work well and the support for them is very good as well.

I have never used such an easy product that is stable and scalable like Unitrends. I have been running backups for MANY years. On premise, tape, disk, cloud, you name it. Unitrends is very flexible, stable and has incredible reporting features. It's nice when management requests a report and it takes you 5 minutes to run it and dump it to PDF. How can you beat that?

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.

Initial deployment services were terrific, and the couple of times I required support I received timely support from very knowledgeable support staff. These people are some of the best support staff I have encountered in my 20 year IT career.

The Unitrends employees involved in the installation were very friendly and knowledgeable. A certain degree of hiccups can be expected during any installation but never shook my confidence because of the friendly and knowledgeable team that was assigned to my project.

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

Unitrends Recovery Series Backup Appliance

With the installation of the Unitrends appliance, we now have a flat cost structure, clients can be added/dropped without affecting operating costs. Whenever issues with the appliance are encountered, either questions about the OS, setting up backups/archives, doing recovery or hardware related the Unitrends support team has been exceptional in their assistance, a total change from the cost and support structure of the previous product.

Ted Cook | TrustRadius Reviewer

Unitrends Recovery Series Backup Appliance

  • There are no negative impacts on our organization using the Unitrends device.
  • I have used the unitrends device to recover individual files lost by users, servers because of disc failures, servers because of malware or ransomeware, and desktops that I just thought it would be cool to show people how the baremetal product works.
