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.


What is most valuable?

Backup and Recovery for our production PCs.

How has it helped my organization?

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

What needs 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.

For how long have I used the solution?

We just started deploying the product company-wide.

What was my experience with deployment of the solution?

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

What do I think about the stability of the solution?

Yes see above.

What do I think about the scalability of the solution?

Nope.

Which solution did I use previously and why did I switch?

We were using Altiris. 

How was the initial setup?

It was straightforward.

What about the implementation team?

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

What other advice do I have?

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