Acronis Cyber Protect Home Office (formerly Acronis True Image)

The imaging capability seems to be solid [with Acronis True Image], although I have not had to recover a drive yet so cannot compare. The logs tell me when it is (and isn't) working. The "Cloud Replication" that is supposed to simultaneously replicate the
local backup image is perfectly awful and the months of tech support
ended with them telling me I had a "VSS issue" on a brand new workstation
and that I should just create a separate cloud image. After months of it
taking 3-4 DAYS to run, IF it worked, and then failing altogether, I discontinued it. It was even logging (running?) under another separate critical files backup, and forced to use the same encryption password. Setting up a new one failed. The cloud backup of my critical
files is still running at kb/sec speeds. The ransomware protection hasn't caught anything yet to my knowledge, and consumes a lot of resources. Changing the settings takes at least 10 minutes to log into the cloud. Cloud storage is tiny and a push to get you to pay more. Will not be renewing.

If I were speaking to a fellow Managed Service Provider, I would likely NOT recommend this product. There are simply too many other tools out there that are better hitting this particular market. And the pain points that we do have with them are especially difficult because of our business model. However in speaking to pretty much anyone else in IT/Disaster Recovery this is an enterprise tool built to handle anything you throw at it. UNC paths and linking backup servers to one another, the flexibility of the tool allows for maximum cost savings if you build it right.

Pros

Acronis Cyber Protect Home Office (formerly Acronis True Image)

  • Delta backup makes backups super fast of larger files that do not change in its entirety (e.g. VM images, large PSD files)
  • Easy to use (set it and forget it)
  • Rescue media makes it easy to restore backups to different hardware and migrate to other work stations
  • Lots of backup options on the Windows version of ATI

Arcserve UDP

  • It is reliable and once it is up and running you do not need to worry about it.
  • It is flexible; you can use it to backup on-prem or in the cloud.
  • Backup and DR

Cons

Acronis Cyber Protect Home Office (formerly Acronis True Image)

  • Some features have actually become more complicated over the years. One that comes to mind is creating a backup plan that can execute daily to an external USB media that is changed daily (older versions would back up to the, for example, "F" drive regardless of which drive was attached - newer versions identify each drive uniquely, and a backup task created with a given external drive will fail due to the lack of media presence if the drive is replaced).
  • Error messages could be less cryptic.
  • Support turnaround time and live assistance could be faster.

Arcserve UDP

  • Notifications - on the odd occasion something doesn't work, I get way too many email notifications!
  • Explanation of issues - sometimes when there is a problem, the explanation is a bit lacking in the logs as to why
  • Flagging of errors - sometimes minor errors just get a warning flag, and it doesn't really notify you that they are there.

It works great in our infrastructure, we have reduced the risk of losing information at a lower TCO compared to other solutions. The implementation process was precise and fast and upgrades have always been smooth. It delivers what it promises.

Beyond a single instance, I haven't had to approach Acronis' support. I needed a new key following the death of my previous workstation, and they rapidly supplied it. I've heard from colleagues that they've quickly answered any questions that've been asked. If I need something, I'll generally frequent FAQ pages first, although Acronis actually has instructional videos to help users get started, which is forward-thinking. Great software that fills a vital niche for Windows systems.

Pretty good--I haven't actually had to call them much so it's hard to say. The box works well enough and most of my issues have been related to the rest of my network, rather than the appliance itself.

Alternatives Considered

Acronis Cyber Protect Home Office (formerly Acronis True Image)

Acronis True Image is the perfect program when it comes to backing up data. It supports all kinds of backup like file and/or folder backup and has a better and easier to use interface than the 2 products. I also like that I have the option to backup data in local drives also instead of the cloud only. And lastly, it supports Partition backup also instead of only files and/or folders.

Arcserve [UDP] has stood the test of time due to its low cost-to-feature value proposition for our company. We have ultimately decided to move to a more MSP-friendly product in N-Able Backup, but Arcserve [UDP] kept us around for years with their reliable and inexpensive product that delivered above and beyond technologically of their competitors throughout all that time.

The Windows version is generally reliable and only ran into one issue thus far. Restores are easy and there are many features. On MacOS, it's a completely different story. There is significant resource leakage related to the updater app that can bog down part of a CPU core continuously until it is disabled. The mobile backup feature also needs to be disabled via UNIX command line or CPU usage will go up when a mobile device on the same network like an iPad or iPhone's screen is turned on.

Return on Investment

Acronis Cyber Protect Home Office (formerly Acronis True Image)

  • Peace of mind - knowing that if anything happens to our data, we can recover it.
  • File Versioning has saved us a few times - we can grab prior versions of a particular file if there is a problem.
  • Reasonably priced - there are more comprehensive backup solutions out there, but for online backup, this was the right product for the right price.
John Bode | TrustRadius Reviewer

Arcserve UDP

  • We have been able to keep our clients' costs low and add advanced features with no additional overhead for us in licensing.
  • It does however cost us a significant amount of additional technician time to review backups each day compared to other products aimed in our vertical.
