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

Zerto

Zerto is very well suited for a situation in which you need to replicate data or info to a DR site, whether on or off-prem, or in the cloud. This software platform has a lot of cloud capabilities, and really makes sense for a lot of organizations trying to make their DR more approachable and consistent

  • Zerto needs a lot of open tcp ports between the different components. Especially in a cloud setup this is sometimes cumbersome. Less communications ports would be an improvement.
  • To streamline the implementation of a disaster site, it would be great if Zerto could also offer some kind of layer 2 LAN extender to connect recovery site and production LAN.

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 really like the easy setup of this replication solution, as well as the ease of management. Not to mention, our internal IT Economist determined that the Zerto solution would provide the best ROI out of the competing solutions we analyzed. So far, his calculations have been spot on, and we have saved substantially

Depending on where you create a ticket, it can be lower priority than desired. Use the Zerto portal to create high priority tickets.

Alternatives Considered

Acronis Backup Cloud has more features than eFolder, and is less than 1/3rd of the cost. In terms of restores, it's faster than eFolder if you use the local component. The restoration component is much better than Carbonite's, which has a tendency to drop connection midway through a file download. Acronis lets you restore to original locations, to a new location on the same device, or just as a download through your browser. Acronis Backup Cloud beats everything else we've tried, and it's unbelievable how affordable it is.

Zerto is easy to install and maintain. Most importantly, the replication feature with a journal that provides recovery point every few seconds cannot be found in any other software we evaluated.

Return on Investment

  • ROI has been huge. The cost is incredibly cheap, and we saved $1500/month by switching.
  • With a heavy impact on profits, we're able to bundle this backup plan into our basic server management plans with no additional cost, which raises the value of our offerings significantly.

  • Compared to the previous DR replication solution, Zerto has decreased both RPO and RTO significantly.
  • The simplicity of the setup and the speed of replication.
