What is most valuable?

We chose Acronis as our backup solution because of the diversity in the types of backups it can provide. One of my favorite features of the Acronis backup product is the ability to replicate the… more »

What needs improvement?

One of the areas where the product could be improved is its online cloud backup. I do appreciate the way the product is easy to navigate, however, sometimes I have difficulty managing the security… more »

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

I advise my clients to seriously look at the cloud offering because the hardware to have a good onsite backup is still pricey.

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

I have used other solutions, such as Norton Backup and Arcserve. Acronis is by far the most cost-effective.

What other advice do I have?

I would suggest to anyone using this product to take advantage of the support and the advanced features such as replication of their backup set.

Which other solutions did I evaluate?

I did not look at any other products.

What is most valuable?

I would say compression, which was about 95% on the databases. The fact that the agent, which is installed on the system, can do Quality of Service. Therefore, I do not… more »

How has it helped my organization?

I am from Perú, and IT departments are not very advanced here. Basically, it is way better than whatever we are used to using, tapes, etc.

What needs improvement?

The logs could be better. Logs through the website are just too simple and basic. For you to actually see the full logs, you have to use additional tools or even contact… more »

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

I have been using pay as you go with Acronis, so the price is good.

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

I personally have used corporate solutions, such as Dropbox, Veritas, and Veeam. Veeam is good as well.

What other advice do I have?

Make sure to set the download for the right client. Acronis has multiples, especially for the SQL.

Which other solutions did I evaluate?

I personally evaluated Dropbox, Veritas, and Veeam. Veeam is good as well.

What is most valuable?

It provides reliability and the confidence when a server disaster happens, that the product is actually doing what it says it's doing. For example, we have a backup of our servers. It's the only… more »

How has it helped my organization?

I can sleep at night. Seriously, that's important for an IT system's administrator, knowing that the data which we're doing our day-to-day business on is being backed up nightly. If we lost our… more »

What needs improvement?

They have cloud storage technology. The problem with it, it's slow. Say if all of our backups here failed, like the week back up locally to tape drives and different types of masses, and we store our… more »

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

I used to run Microsoft Backup. It was built into every single copy of the Windows server. The problem with this (everybody knows about this) is they require you to use a floppy disk. Nobody has… more »

What other advice do I have?

Buy it sooner than later. If you don't have a backup solution or a disaster recovery program in your company, you're flirting with disaster. The tool is really important for me, because I have my job… more »

Which other solutions did I evaluate?

Symantec was the other choice, it and Retrospect. But I don't use Retrospect for server backups. I wouldn't trust it for that. I trust it for file backups, but not for server backups.

What is most valuable?

It’s easy. We are resellers for small and medium businesses in this market segment, so we appreciate this feature.

How has it helped my organization?

Provides automatic backup operations for middle sized servers and desktops.

What needs improvement?

User interface Improvements: I think this needs to be done in the navigation path into the UIs, mainly for the reseller interfaces. Some useful options initially seem “hidden”, but instead they really exist. After the initial disorientation, however, the use is easier.

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

Because my company is under a re-seller agreement, we switched to this product. We evaluated other products, but for our target segment market, we chose Acronis.
