Acronis Backup Review

Provides backup and storage for our production PC's but the storage nose is stuck frequently and we have to reboot it.

Valuable Features:

Backup and Recovery for our production PCs.

Improvements to My Organization:

End user can manage backup and recovery on its own efficiently once a product PC has failed during production. 

Room for Improvement:

The ability to use computing resources, the storage nose is stuck frequently and we have to reboot it, and I'm told that it needs 128GB memory and SAS disk to keep it stable, all of these elements leave me unsatisfied.

Use of Solution:

We just started deploying the product company-wide.

Deployment Issues:

Yes, it's for HW requirement described above, because we hadn't been told the requirement by Acronis before we started.

Stability Issues:

Yes see above.

Scalability Issues:


Previous Solutions:

We were using Altiris. 

Initial Setup:

It was straightforward.

Implementation Team:

We did it on our own based on the design provided by Acronis.

Other Advice:

Optimize resource usage on dedup, look at Avamar which has dedup capability with moderate usage.
