What do you think of Acronis Backup?

In any network and system environment, backup and recovery is one of the most crucial, critical and inevitably important and demanding task. There are two products (Norton Ghost & Acronis True Image) which are top of the line in terms of granularity and flexibility. Reliable and rapid recovery is one of the system administrators’ strong needs in deployed domains. I had used Norton Ghost v.9 quite for some time and the sole purpose for usage was client pc’s restoration in case of HDD failure caused by malfunction, viral activity or any other reason for system drive corruption. Though both Ghost and Acronis provide excellent recovery from scratch for partition recovery to full HDD and Logical Volume backup and restore for almost all Microsoft operating systems (MS Small Business Server,…

What is most valuable?

The most valuable feature is its consistency. It is an established product.

What needs improvement?

I feel like this product a little bit locked in the past. This is not a feature-rich solution. I would like to see a more SaaS-based solution, perhaps more cloud-centric. Essentially, keeping in lock-step with the other companies out there… more»

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

Our licensing fees are on a yearly basis.

What other advice do I have?

Because this solution is not feature-rich, we have looked at other solutions. My advice for somebody who wants to implement this solution is to make sure that they understand the requirements. This includes the RTO (Recovery Time Objective)… more»

Which other solutions did I evaluate?

We did an evaluation of many different solutions, primarily because we were moving from more on-premise to cloud-based solutions. So, as a result of going to the cloud, we looked at the Best of Breed in the cloud space. Ultimately, we… more»

What is most valuable?

For me, the valuable feature is that they are looking forward at some cloud integrations and to bring in some of their solutions for Azure and other clouds. It's possible to use the solution not only on-premise but also in some cloud environments that have been growing lately. They also have a very big knowledge base and support. If you don't know something or something goes wrong, you can always… more»

What needs improvement?

They need to continue working on it to make it work more smoothly and faster.

What other advice do I have?

it's better to search for a solution from among the top vendors. Acronis is one of them. In any environment you need a backup solution and protection for disaster recovery. You need to use a solution to back up your servers and Active Directory, etc. Acronis is quite a good solution for that. The most important criteria when selecting a vendor are the vendor's reputation and the quality of the… more»

What is most valuable?

The ability to clone backups, to have backups replicated.

How has it helped my organization?

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

What needs improvement?

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

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

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

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… more»
