Acronis Backup Review

​Management console is able to control all backups from one location, but the cleanup function has never worked

What is most valuable?

One license per VMware Host to backup all the VMs on that particular host.

How has it helped my organization?

Management console is able to control all backups from one location.

What needs improvement?

Error log interpretation will come back with some great big number, then it will want to go to the internet, but it is a silent site. Unfortunately, we aren’t able to really tell what is going on.

For how long have I used the solution?

I have used the solution for five to six years.

What do I think about the stability of the solution?

No issues with stability.

What do I think about the scalability of the solution?

No, but it doesn’t do cleanup at all. I have set to keep data for four months on some backups, then they are marked to be deleted, but never delete. Consequently, I run out of disk space, then I manually have to purge the backups from the management console. This feature has never worked.

How are customer service and technical support?

Very knowledgeable.

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

This was our first solution.

How was the initial setup?

It was fairly straightforward.

What's my experience with pricing, setup cost, and licensing?

It is better than most.

Which other solutions did I evaluate?

Veeam. They seemed okay, but they didn’t do physical computers and I needed both.

What other advice do I have?

If you are looking to implement this product, "Do it."
