The most valuable feature is that you can do a bare-metal restore even with dissimilar hardware.

One of the features I have found most valuable is the restore point - it gives us what we need at the time we need it. The important thing is that the backup for Acronis doesn't depend as much on the device.

It actually does its job very well and has interesting capabilities, but it has the most awful interface.

The most valuable feature is the fact that it backs up my systems transparently in the background, and I'm not even conscious of it.

It has simple buying options and deployments. You can buy on-cloud, on-premises, or hybrid solutions. Acronis Backup is very easy to deploy. It also does not consume much hardware. The administrator's tasks are very simple. It is very user friendly, and it also has good security features with low-level encryption and data encryption.

They've got an agent to back up Microsoft SQL, to our Office 365, but there is not an agent to back up my SQL databases.

In the span of six months, maintenance is done at least twice and you are told that it is coming up, with apologies for the inconvenience. It's a distraction, and it interferes with the backup schedule.

When an error occurs, the information is not always easy to understand and these messages should be made more clear.

For smaller companies it's a little more challenging to maintain.

The problems that we face are often related to the customer's network, although sometimes there are problems with the software, such as an error in the configuration.

The whole product structure is confusing. You can actually get to do what you want to do. But Acronis seems to have a singular ability to make things difficult.

When I first started using Acronis, I found it a little bit confusing when it came to the configuration.

They can include something called a backup appliance. Although Acronis is a software-driven company, it would be good for customers to have some kind of backup appliance on top of a lightweight operating system. This will also reduce the cost. Currently, the customers have to buy the hardware in addition to the operating system, which increases the overhead in terms of procurement.
