Overall Satisfaction with Acronis Backup

Currently, we are using Acronis to backup our VMware hosts as well as the VMs living on the hosts. When I first came on board with our company there was no cloud backup happening.
  • Automated backups to both cloud and local sources.
  • The recovery process is incredibly well implemented.
  • The have some very good support.
  • I wish there was a better way to backup the contents of a NAS, currently I have to do a "Machine" backup and then point to the NAS folder/s from there.
  • I've not had to use the recovery process yet, but I feel comfortable having my company's data in the cloud.
I've yet to run into any issues adding or increasing my demands with Acronis.
I had so many issues with Unitrends appliance getting full and backups just failing. Switching over to Acronis has been such a hassle-free experience; I'm happy to have done so.
It's a well-rounded software package for backing up virtual machines, I've not used it for physical machines yet but I'd bet it works just as well. I would however like improvements to be made in the backup process of NAS folders.
