Acronis Disaster Recovery Service

Acronis Disaster Recovery Service is well suited in any scenario where a business has a server environment that they cannot afford to have gone down for any amount of time. It is less suited in a smaller business environment where downtime for several hours does not disrupt the flow of the business enough to offset the cost of Acronis Disaster Recovery Service.

Microsoft Power BI

Power BI is well suited for flat file databases, although the pivot column feature can help other types. Particularly great where visualizations can provide better insights than data tables so great for deep insights into trend evolution. Can be challenging to build profit & loss statements with subtotals and percentages based on sales as one single neat statement.

Pros

Acronis Disaster Recovery Service

  • Automatic IP handling
  • Automatic failover to the recovery service center
  • Very robust with a lot of options to use
Anonymous | TrustRadius Reviewer

Microsoft Power BI

  • Reporting, reporting, reporting. Power BI is great for reporting. I can create a number of different charts, views, and dashboards for a number of different audiences. It's very helpful for executives to see the big picture, but dynamic enough to take the same data sources and create detailed reports on very specific elements.
  • Power BI is easy to use. We went from manual data entry and report creation in Excel to Power BI. There was a learning curve, but I was able to find enough training online to get started.
  • Automating the report creation is wonderful. It takes all the manual work out of my old daily processes. My supervisors and bosses have been impressed too. They think it's magic, which makes me look good.

Cons

Acronis Disaster Recovery Service

  • Pricing can be a hassle and sometimes unpredictable. This is a byproduct of having to sell compute points in a data center as well as the backup software.
  • Implementation can be a bit complicated; someone who doesn't know what their doing can have a bad recovery experience.
  • User setup can be tricky unless the reseller themselves builds an automatic system.

Microsoft Power BI

  • Initial creation of reports, even from processed data sets is not simple.
  • The on-premises reporting (crucial for a defense industry company) is extremely expensive, as it is only included in the Power BI Premium package.
  • User training is usually required to ensure that full functionality of the dashboards and their built in features are utilized.

The languages within Power BI can be quite the learning curve, but the actual dashboard functionality is a breeze. The most difficult aspect for me has been learning different languages to get the most out of Power BI (DAX, M). But the ease of creating great looking and interactive dashboards has been outstanding.

The reseller or MSP often determine support for the service that the client chooses to purchase the product from. On the reseller or MSP side, Acronis Disaster Recovery Service support is outstanding. They are quick to respond to issues and always have someone available to help answer questions about sales, using the product, or training.

[Microsoft] Power BI support is pretty generic, and it does take time to reach a right resource. Very often their solutions are KB articles not really relevant to my problem. This an area for improvement. I always try to research my issue on PBI message boards/user community sites.

Alternatives Considered

Acronis Disaster Recovery Service

Acronis Disaster Recovery Service provides an entirely cloud-based service that can be managed anywhere without the need for additional hardware. While we do offer other DRaaS options, they mainly involve redundant hardware that is costly and typically not suitable for small clients. Acronis Disaster Recovery Service provides a cloud-based service with agent-based installation at a competitive price.

I am not a data analyst, but as a user, I prefer the UI of Power BI compared to Periscope Data. Periscope Data has some really great functionality and can build some really useful reports, but Power BI seems to have more useful visuals and is easier for non-database admins/non-data analysts to generate some interesting, basic reports that help them in their role. I've also found courses to help you learn how to use Power BI, from the simple functions up to more complex processes (and get a certification for it) for which I was unable to find for Periscope Data.

Return on Investment

Acronis Disaster Recovery Service

  • Helped us to provide a complete offering to clients, whether they use it or not.
  • Allows us to compete with other DRaaS offerings.
  • It gives us multiple price points and objectives to offer clients when showing them different solutions.

Microsoft Power BI

  • I'm using the free version, so the only investment was the time spent to learn how to use the product (which as an Excel user, was very short).
  • I use Excel to store every single bit of information about all the projects I do, and being able to see them visualized helped me see some redundant steps I was taking.
  • No negative impact at all for me.
