Overall Satisfaction with Acronis Cyber Backup

Acronis is being used by the IT department to back up a mission-critical production server. We have used it to browse and recover files that have been deleted in error and used it for recovery when vendor changes have caused issue with customization. We use it to incrementally back up the database locally and with the cloud service, which has been very reliable for us.
  • Notifications.
  • Ease of browsing local or cloud backups.
  • The menu system on the recovery site takes some getting used to.
  • Licensing through cleverbridge feels like extra steps.
  • Positive, it has helped us recover over reinstall, etc. so it's saved a lot of down time.
  • It's vendor-proofed us from unintentional patches...
We've looked at SolarWinds, Veritas, etc. but none of them had the right combination of features, price and ease of use when compared against Acronis and its ease of implementation, setup and recovery options. We didn't like the wait time for recovery with some of the others and being able to quickly get a machine back entirely was important to us.
Overall I'd recommend Acronis to anyone. It's cost effective and as an admin whose actually had to dig for files, knowing that I can spin up a machine and find what I need is peace of mind for myself and the owners of the business. The cloud service has never failed to perform the scheduled backups and it doesn't leave you with ambiguous messages about each backup.
