How has it helped my organization?

The advantages to me are I make two backups. I make a backup of the entire server that goes offsite. That's for disaster recovery. And then I make another copy of just two virtual… more»

What needs improvement?

I have used it in the past. Not the same software, but the same company, and had success with it, and it was fairly easy to use. This one is much more complicated, but there are a lot… more»

If you previously used a different solution, which one did you use and why did you switch?

We used the inherent Windows Server Backup in the operating system. And the reason we switched is, the way it's configured, for me to save to a location that's local, it has to take… more»

What other advice do I have?

I would say it's not a steep learning curve, but there's a learning curve, learning how you want it set up, because of the amount of options that you're given. It's good that you have… more»

What is most valuable?

My favorite feature is that we use it for backing up our VMware environment and then, we just have a few physical servers. I like that I can configure a single backup so as to backup all the VM servers. I also like that it gives you a place for… more»

How has it helped my organization?

I don't worry that the backups aren't running or panic when a storm is coming through; it just reassures us because we've seen what it's doing, what it can do, and that it's doing what we're asking it to do. For example, if somebody deletes a… more»

What needs improvement?

We have been using this solution for almost a year now. I'm not sure about the improvements aspect because it has been a learning experience for me. However, I know that any time I've come across an issue with it, I open a case with support by… more»

How has it helped my organization?

Up to now, it was fantastic. Whenever we had a problem, we just restored the image. Every first of the month I'm doing a full image backup, and every day of the month a differential… more»

What needs improvement?

Recently there was an event where I thought everything was working OK but, in part, the image wasn't good. It didn't give me a message telling me that the image didn't work properly… more»

If you previously used a different solution, which one did you use and why did you switch?

Previously I used Ghost from Symantec. I also tried other products at the same time just to make sure I was making the right decision. No question that the Acronis is better than… more»

What is most valuable?

I've reimaged servers and been back up and running in exactly no time with the completely new hardware. The Universal Restore allows you to reimage a computer without having to have… more»

What needs improvement?

It doesn't seem to do the following on the server but it does so on the work station: It does not delete locked files. So I created a small batch file that, after the backup, I go in… more»

If you previously used a different solution, which one did you use and why did you switch?

I've used all of them. I've used Norton Ghost, and years and years ago something called FastBack. Norton Ghost is really the only other one, but my experience is there are more… more»

What other advice do I have?

Buy it. Simple. It's the best backup. I've used it to restore a number of machines without any trouble at all. It's very simple with a hard drive. It makes it much easier if you have… more»

What is most valuable?

Version 11.7 was good, but 12.5 is much more sophisticated. It does a lot of things that 11.7 didn't do, like protecting from ransomware. The structure and the organization of it is better than 11.7. In terms of backups, it works more… more»

What needs improvement?

This might be a lack of understanding on my part, but it's difficult to purge old backups. Also, there's something in it that detects ransomware. But it's detecting a program that runs in the background of my machine that it thinks is… more»

If you previously used a different solution, which one did you use and why did you switch?

It was a Microsoft backup. The stuff that came with the file server, SPF 2008. It was absolutely awful compared to Acronis. Acronis is dedicated to doing backup. Special for IT Central Station Visitors: Free 30-Day Trial of Acronis Backup 12.5

What is most valuable?

Backup and recovery are the most valuable features.

How has it helped my organization?

We are able to remotely backup machines from locations across the United States from one centralized point. We are also able to restore/reimage machines the same way. This saves us… more»

What needs improvement?

The compatibility, i.e., the backups need capability with the version 11.7 to 11.5 which need to work together; currently, they don't work together at all. If you image a machine with… more»

What other advice do I have?

It is very user-friendly and allows us to do on the fly imaging without having to take down an X-amount of facilities or schedule a time for backups; we can do backups on the fly as… more»
