Acronis Cyber Cloud for Enterprise

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.

VMware SRM

It's quite well suited for a medium to large size VMWare virtualization infrastructure where your production infrastructure can be failed over to a disaster recovery site. There are other cheaper options for a smaller budget business. Also, for a non mission critical virtual infrastructure, you can simply use VM backups such as Veeam backups for restoring failed VMs

Cons

Acronis Cyber Cloud for Enterprise

  • 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.

VMware SRM

  • It’s unfortunate, but more and more, the quality of VMware’s products and the technical support teams behind them has degraded significantly. We have opened several support requests within the last few months and ended up resolving a large majority ourselves due to the poor performance of their remote teams.
  • VMware is suffering from the same illness that’s affecting multiple U.S. technology firms, in that their focus has shifted completely away from their customers and moved to pleasing investors. In doing so, clients suffer because they do not get properly tested products and the support teams behind them are very weak and overwhelmed.
  • We worked close to a month trying to get SRM V6.5 to work. We have worked with many previous versions of SRM in the past while using HP EVAs, NetApps and Hitachi arrays, and we can honestly say that we are greatly disappointed with this release and the company.
  • We escalated right up to engineering, but their response times were brutally slow; the technicians were juniors at best.
  • As a technology leader, the last thing you want during a DR is to be dealing with a company that just can't deliver. SRM is not cheap, and you would expect much better products and support from VMware.
  • If you are comparing products, try other companies like Veeam... We ended up using them instead, the setup and execution was easy and seamless, and they answered all our questions quickly and efficiently. They actually do care about their clients.

VMWare SRM is very easy to use and configure. You don't have to be a virtualization expert to learn SRM configuration and execution.

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.

Sometimes we have to struggle explaining the problem and getting it resolved on priority. The overall quality of support team is not as good as it used to be in past.

Alternatives Considered

Acronis Cyber Cloud for Enterprise

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.
jesse nanes | TrustRadius Reviewer

VMware SRM

Entertained Veeam, however with SRM's tight integration and "brand" it was an easy decision. The cost for a 25 server license also weighed in the decision for using a VMware product. Plus I am a VMware fan and feel this option to go with SRM will transcend jobs.

Return on Investment

Acronis Cyber Cloud for Enterprise

  • Acronis has made our backup process much smoother.
  • Less tech time needed to configure backups.
  • Less tech time needed to restore backups.
jesse nanes | TrustRadius Reviewer

VMware SRM

  • The biggest positive is that we have a data recovery solution that we can test and verify in a live condition. Prior to this we were only hoping we could recover from a disaster.
  • We've been only running for 4 months and haven't had to use SRM.
