Overall Satisfaction with Acronis Backup

We use Acronis Backup to easily manage all of our local backups. It is very much easy to use and configure. Anytime we have needed to recover from backup, it has been a piece of cake. As you know, this is crucial when something needs to be restored. I have complete faith in Acronis and appreciate it coming through in the clutch when needed.
  • This software is really easy to implement. You are up and running within a day.
  • Restores are extremely easy to implement.
  • When you do need to contact support they are really helpful.
  • It can be a little expensive.
  • You have to install an agent on your servers.
  • I did not have great luck with it backing up Linux servers.
  • When we restore files quickly we minimize time lost. Acronis is great with this.
  • The overall investment is small when compared with other solutions.
If you need a robust multisite backup solution, I would look elsewhere. If you need something small and affordable, Acronis will get the job done and get the job done well. I can't emphasize this enough: it just works.
  • Windows Server
  • Windows PC
  • Microsoft Exchange Server
  • Microsoft SQL Server
I used this in place of Backup Exec and was extremely pleased with it. Backup Exec is really confusing and the backups are unreliable. I loved replacing it with Acronis.
If you are on a Windows environment and you want to implement a super easy backup solution, Acronis will do the trick. There are other pricier backup solutions out there, but if your environment is small and you only need to backup locally, it works like a dream. I was always pleased whenever I had to restore a backup.
