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.

Veeam Backup & Replication

Should you have a virtualization infrastructure based on Microsoft Hyper-V or VMware vSphere, should you host several virtual machines some in production, some in acceptance, should you have a business model where you do regular upgrades and deploy new releases or just want to have a backup capability in case of business critical application requiring disaster recovery capabilities, should you keep backup footprint as small as possible, care for a community edition for smaller businesses and full edition for more corporate environment, this tool is 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

Veeam Backup & Replication

  • It offers various backup types. If the infrastructure can handle the forever incremental or reverse incremental options, these are very efficient on space usage.
  • The interface is easy to use. There are a lot of options within the software, but it's never felt overwhelming to figure out and adjust job settings.
  • Restores are simple and offer great options. Even full VM restores are easy to do. File-level restores offer multiple ways to restore files, such as to a different location, or the same, then making copies of any collision files.
Adam Friedli | TrustRadius Reviewer

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

Veeam Backup & Replication

  • Veeam Backup and Recovery performance is particularly reliant on the performance capability of your backup infrastructure. Your network and disk resources WILL get taxed, so make sure to prepare properly. If your backup infrastructure is slow, your backups will be slow.
  • Backup and Recovery does have a wizard to make recommendations on how to build out the backup infrastructure for large environments, so you should have experts involved in the proper configuration.
  • Some backup/replication jobs do not process in one day. Example - We have some VMs that are quite large, so the processing of VMs can take several days when we change disk sizes.

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.

I really have no complaints about Veeam Backup & Replication. Their service has been excellent and the cost is minimal in comparison to other services I checked out. Implementation wasn't simple and the Veeam Support team was there to help each step of the way.

The Veeam Backup & Replication solution is up and running every time you need it as it was planned. In more than 3 years that we have been using the product every night, it might have failed or presented an error once or twice, so the availability percentage is almost at 100%.

To identify a bottleneck in the data path, Veeam Backup & Replication
detects the component with the maximum workload, the component
that works for the most time of the job. For example, you use a
low-speed storage device as the backup repository. Even if VM data is
retrieved from the SAN storage on the source side and transported over a
high-speed link, VM data flow will still be impaired at the backup
repository.

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.

Veeam support is good and the Net Promoter Score of +70 says so. However, in many cases the problems come from the hypervisor side or generation of snapshots that do not depend on Veeam and can corrupt the backup data. In general, the Veeam support does a good follow-up until determining the root problem and proceeding with the necessary remediation.

(I assume this question should say "Veeam" and not "Crownpeak Universal Consent Platform")Planning is key. Planning your backup schedule, size, data restore points, replication if you're doing that, &c. Testing is also important; make sure you back something up and then do a test restore. Set up alerts so you know if things aren't working (or even if they are, always good to know that too).

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

Veeam Backup & Replication

Unlike many of the vendors above, Veeam is providing a solution that scales from one workload to hundreds and fits comprehensively in any of the spaces between without compromising the core functionality and feature set that makes it such a great product. Veeam are confident in the solution they provide and with good reason, the tag line "It just works" is very appropriate

Scalability can be addressed in many ways, but there is a consequence:
Higher performance and smaller backup windows may put too much stress on
production storage, and therefore, on its performance and Availability
to production workloads. To reduce stress on production storage, version
9.5 introduces a new way of reading VM disks that is optimized for
enterprise storage.

Return on Investment

Acronis Cyber Backup Cloud

  • Acronis met our business objectives by simplifying our backup infrastructure
  • Reduced costs of our off site backup infrastructure
  • Reduced staff dedicated to monitoring off site backups
Ted Cook | TrustRadius Reviewer

Veeam Backup & Replication

  • Positive in compliance with DR and backup/recovery policies.
  • Positive ROI although smaller organizations may struggle to justify the cost.
  • Positive in terms of man-hours needed for support. Generally speaking, it doesn't need much support, once setup it can often be "forgotten."
