Acronis Backup Review

We have saved massive drive space and shortened data transfer time to offsite due to the 8:1 ratio of the de-duplication and changed block tracking, but MS Exchange and SQL backups are a little slow.


Improvements to My Organization

We can backup all hosts and clusters. We have saved massive drive space and shortened data transfer time to offsite due to the 8:1 ratio of the de-duplication and changed block tracking. Recovery is easy and can be done by any of the help desk techs with very little training.

Valuable Features

  • Centralized Management
  • De-Duplication
  • The ability to write to a 2nd backup location, including tape drive
  • The ability to mount SQL databases
  • The ability to stand up a VM from TIB file
  • Converting physical to Virtual and vise-versa
  • Boot and backup any volume regardless of OZ
  • Image or file recovery and database recovery including mailbox
  • Universal restore

There are many more features, but those for the money are outstanding.
