We use Acronis Backup Cloud to back up servers and assorted devices, and we absolutely love it. When we switched from eFolder, we saved over $1500 per month in our backup, and we received more features than we were getting before.

DMI Networking is a managed service provider for dentists, with a national presence. We use Acronis Backup Cloud to back up servers and assorted devices, and we absolutely love it.

Acronis Backup Cloud lets us virtualize a server from the backup media, which brings up dental practices in less than 15 minutes, as opposed to the many hours needed to do a complete restore.

  • Their support team isn't great. It can take a while to get an issue resolved, although issues do not happen frequently.
Acronis Backup Cloud is suited for backing up Windows Servers. Downtime is greatly decreased by using their virtualization options. You will need a Hyper-V enabled computer to virtualize, though, but this can be one of your general-use workstations. A Windows 10 Pro machine with 16 GB of RAM would do it for you.

Or, if you have Macs that need to be backed up, you can do that as well. You can grab either full volume images, or files/folders.

I can't really think of a scenario that you would not want Acronis Backup Cloud, except pre-Server 2012 OS's, since virtualization isn't supported on those older systems.

Acronis is a great solution for organizations with an IT department or consultant. It works great for IT administrators that have multiple data centers so they can have a central backup location. Acronis would not be a great fit for organizations with low bandwidth or slow internet speeds.

We are using Backup 12 (standard edition) to back up local environment (VMware machines, 2 physical windows servers). It is used by our (IT) department.

  • Good to backup all machines (PC, windows server, Vmware) using a single tool
  • More features needed - tapes support, more advanced deduplication
Small to medium environments (1-5 physical servers, 20-200 workstations)
