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.

In terms of AWS services, S3 is the best storage solution offered that gives us security and reliability with a wide, even if it is too wide at times, array of services making it a cost effective solution. However, when compared to other large cloud providers, such as Google & Azure, the selection process and benefits become harder to define as benefits are realized on a per-project basis. S3 is definitely a solid choice, due to the partnerships with EMC and branding, but the over abundant additional services, while nice, makes the service feel a bit pieced together, and not stable, compared to other services designed more as pure storage containers, such as Google Cloud Storage, which has already been proven as a reliable service by the millions of customers utilizing Google Cloud Drive.

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.

  • S3 has definitely simplified our work, and the amount of work required of us when deploying with AWS, by letting all important and irreplaceable data to be stored in one location and utilized by multiple services.
  • The Snapshot service has turned data migration and maintenance from a stressful, time-consuming service similar to disarming a bomb, into a quick and carefree service, letting us roll back to a working version of data with a simple click of the mouse, and reverse human errors quickly, before any damages are accrued.
  • The caching and CDN capabilities provided by integrating S3 with CloudFront is another, invaluable service that gives our server clusters another head up on the competition in terms of speed and access.
