Overall Satisfaction with Acronis Backup & Recovery

Acronis is used across departments in our organization for backup of smaller server installs and workstations. It is not our enterprise DR solution but it plays a role in the overall strategy.
  • Acronis is very simple to install, implement, and maintain.
  • Acronis is a solid solution which we find trustworthy.
  • The pricing structure works well for the way in which have chosen to implement Acronis.
  • Acronis was not ultimately chosen as our enterprise DR solution.
  • We felt that it lacked the features necessary for our purposes. Specifically, an intuitive and centralized management console for DR across the entire organization.
  • We felt that it worked well for backing up a single machine, but had concerns about using it for the entire network.
  • For our purposes, Acronis has been a vital part of our overall DR plan.
  • It has, on several occasions, saved and restored critical information.
  • As a result, it has been integral in business continuity.
We use Unitrends for our enterprise Backup and DR. While it is significantly more expensive, requires hardware appliances, and entails a greater degree of implementation difficulty, it fulfills needs related to the scope and feature set which we found wanting in Acronis.
As already discussed, it works well for a single machine or a small group of machines. But for larger enterprise systems, there are better solutions.
