On a scale from 1-10, how you rate Acronis Backup, and why? 
MD AlamAcronis backup is good for windows environments or we can say that individuals system because its work very good when we take the images to any system and restore the copy to some other work station. but this is not smart ways backup in big organisation because big organisation need disaster recovery backup like that Veeam or Net worker and Veritas. this Disaster Recovery software work for all the environment.

I am seriously bummed out that the home version of Crashplan is being discontinued next year because I loved having enterprise-class backup available at home.  I understand focusing on the business world, but I wondered what alternative you have chosen to replace the home version of Crashplan.  I have read all the reviews of the competitors.  What I am interested in is what you have actually done.  Thanks!
John ZanniAll, you should try Acronis True Image. There is both a cloud and on premises version. You can find awards, reviews and testimonials here: And I am happy to answer any questions.
I'm looking for a breakdown of the major differences between these Backup and Disaster Recovery Solutions: 1. Arcserve UDP 2. Acronis Backup 3. Veeam Backup  4. VMware vDPA
Kevin McDanielComparing the features of the four is not the right approach. You need to develop a list of requirements for backup and DR that are specific to your organization and then compare each of the four products to those requirements. All the products you have listed do very well in specific niche markets, all of them also have cons as well, without a clear understanding of what your requirements are a product comparison doesn't mean a great deal.
Pablo CastroThe field about Backup is very big , I am a partner from Acronis , and Acronis has many advantage ,over others tecnology , but in specifics skills , another Marks have theirs improvement skills too , you must specific about what ? Virtualization,storage,management,recovery virtual to physical ? is a lot information to say ..
Gregory WestI second Kevin's remark. It is almost impossible to compare various backup solutions without knowing your environment. Are you backing up exclusively Windows, Windows and Linux, do you have Novell, minicomputer and the list goes on. Why type of backup hardware are you using, WORM, Tape Drive, Tape Autochanger..... And I have not even touched the functions you want the backup to do.
