Acronis
Overall we are happy with what Acronis is offering us, both as a use and a Value Add Resellers. The fact that there is one portal to onboard customers and select services is exactly what we were looking for. Now we are working on the Multi Tenant version, so we can also White Label Acronis towards our customerbase. We have not yet found any scenario's where Acronis can not offer any benefits. We do hear that the pricing for the storage is often to high versus competition. This applies to the Acronis data center storage, yet also the structure of Workload/per TB combination towards other Cloud vendors. (mainly the 3 largest Hyper Scalers) Compared to other Cloud storage solutions, these cost should be lower, so it will be easier to explain to customers to come and join Acronis in the cloud, instead of doing local back-ups or use solutions like DropBox, BackBlaze, PureStorage, Wasabo Hot Cloud Storage, Cloudian and more.

For our purposes I can't particularly find any shortcomings of Veeam Backup for Azure. It has been working well for our needs for a few years now. Maybe for someone with a larger cloud footprint or more complex needs, or maybe someone who wants to be able to deploy and configure the appliance using infrastructure as code it may not be as practical.

Cons
Acronis
  • Better reports with important security information for analyze.
  • The ability to monitor resources like CPU, memory, disks and network activity, and availability.
  • The ability to monitor user activity, very important today because of home working.
  • Endpoint security for IOs and Android, better if it can be an MDM.

Veeam Software
  • Documentation around service account permissions was a little sparse when we implemented it
  • It's sometimes hard to get the reason behind a (rare) job failure without going into logs
  • The UI around snapshots and backups could do with some clarity around the restore points that will be available

It was so easy that you thought it wasn't working. Once you saw data and was able to recover it or do a restore with the product those beliefs in the system went to the roof. Once you get a product that does everything you want it to do, you will give it it's props.

An organization might choose Acronis Cyber Protect Cloud over Barracuda Cloud-to-Cloud Backup for several reasons: Comprehensive Protection: Acronis Cyber Protect Cloud offers a more comprehensive solution that covers data protection, cybersecurity, and disaster recovery. If an organization requires an all-in-one solution to manage both backup and security, Acronis is a better fit. Diverse IT Environment: If a business operates in a diverse IT environment that includes physical, virtual, and cloud components, Acronis Cyber Protect Cloud's broad platform support makes it more suitable. Enhanced Cybersecurity: Organizations that prioritize advanced cybersecurity features and AI-driven threat detection capabilities might find Acronis Cyber Protect Cloud a more robust solution in this regard.

Backup Exec was a very clunky application and took forever to backup to and restore from. We would backup to SSD external hard drives from a flash array, but the process still took forever to finish. Sending our data to the Azure blob storage via Veeam is a faster and more secure process than saving to the external hard drives with Backup Exec.

Veeam Software
  • We have had fast recovery of documents when needed; sub 10 minutes from start of restore to complete and in the users hands
  • Easily a value add for backing up files outside of the given Microsoft retention period; piece of mind
  • Easy tool to use with minimal training required to use it and set up backups
  • When you do change your cloud licensing it does require manual intervention to update backup data requirements. if the business makes changes then your backup person may not know to make these changes
