Acronis Backup Review

Takes a lot of the manual work out of replicating backups

What is our primary use case?

I use it for server backups and workstation backups and it performs pretty well.

How has it helped my organization?

It has taken a lot of the manual work out of replicating backups.

What is most valuable?

The ability to clone backups, to have backups replicated.

What needs improvement?

Better centralized management, because I use it across multiple clients. To have a console that centrally manages them would be nice.

For how long have I used the solution?

One to three years.

What do I think about the stability of the solution?

It's stable.

What do I think about the scalability of the solution?

I use it for very small workstations to launch servers, so the scalability is good.

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

We chose Acronis because it had better non-cloud backup features.

How was the initial setup?

The setup was very straightforward, it was easy. There weren't any complications to it.

What other advice do I have?

My most important criterion when selecting a vendor is the usual: pricing.

I rate this solution at eight out of 10. I don't think any backup solution is perfect, so I think eight is a fair rating for it.

Make sure you are looking for objectives for your backup. There are less expensive solutions out there. You really have to weigh what your backup objectives are in the first place.
