    Acronis

    Acronis Cyber Cloud is well suited in any environment where backup is needed. Whether it is backing up a single workstation, 10 servers, or replicating a Virtual machine to another Virtual Host.

    Tivoli does well running file-level backups, but Exchange is clunky and restores are really hard. With no SharePoint agent, if you use SharePoint you will need another product like AvePoint DocAve. The web-based GUI console is MUCH improved over earlier versions, but you will still need to be a command-line guru to make Tivoli do everything, and local (node) config files still rule. This product was originally ported from Unix and retains may of its 'nix roots.

    • The concept of "forever incremental" is very appealing to my understanding of how backups should happen.
    • The backups are tuned for fast restores and they sure are fast.
    • The media management is very good.

    Cons

    Acronis

    • We would like to see a Virtual Machine test option to test the ability to boot your backups as seen in some competing backup softwares.

    • I do not see anything at the moment that requires change or adjusting. TSM works great for what we need it to do.
    • Note worth mentioning: We never had the opportunity to explore the VM backup functionality, as we are currently using VMware snapshots. This data protection solution came highly recommended to any business environment running VWware / virtualization.

        Acronis

        Support has been helpful when we have had to reach out. We have not had to contact support that much so I do not have much feedback on them. I met the support team at the Cyber Summit and they are all very nice, smart individuals.

        The few times we've called for support we eventually got an answer, but it's IBM and a very big company and getting to a support agent is hard.

        Alternatives Considered

        Acronis

        Acronis is by far much easier to configure and gain access to cloud resources. Acronis is cloud only whereas Veeam requires an on prem server. We tested both and have found that we were unable to accomplish our goals utilizing Veeam.

        Tivoli no longer has a SharePoint agent, others do. We are looking at a product that is agentless (runs in VMWare) to relieve our staff from installing and maintaining agents on 300 servers.

        • Simple, care free backups, especially if you do not use tapes and do not have to manage those.
        • Very fast restores as the libraries have everything available online.
        • Ease of locating the necessary data to restore
