Likelihood to Recommend

Acronis True Image

After being hit with a virus we greatly improved our backup strategy and this has been a great help! Good, reliable backup of servers and workstations, great support, and easy to set up on servers. Recommend it a lot because it very easy to use and saves a lot of work time. Version 2019 has a very good user interface and is very intuitive.

As described in the use case, it is perfect for backup data storage where you do not expect to retrieve the data often. Think of it as a data dump; it is nice to know you have a backup, but it actually is expensive and somewhat difficult to retrieve everything.

It is difficult to delete the data as you have to wait for inventory and then bucket modification has to expire.

Alternatives Considered

  • This is better than Ghost - lighter images and faster.
  • Acronis True Image is the best imaging software currently on the market.
  • Can restore computer failure within some minutes.

Since the rest of our infrastructure is in Amazon AWS, coding for sending data to Glacier just makes sense. The others are great as well, for their specific needs and uses, but having *another* third-party software to manage, be billed for, and learn/utilize can be costly in money and time.

Return on Investment

  • We have seen positive return on our investment from purchasing this software.
  • It's a life saver for us, especially since we have a lot of important data for internal clients at the organization.

  • Inexpensive storage.
  • Ease of mind to know you still have the data somewhere in case you need it.
  • Set it and forget it (until you need it).
