What is most valuable?

I use two products. I use the backup solution and I use something called Disk Director, which is a related product. Together, they allow me to manage all of my storage space. I'm a software developer and I'm often reconfiguring things. These... more»

How has it helped my organization?

Before I had this product, I was doing backups one disk at a time using the tool that comes with Microsoft. I do database work and my projects are large enough that I need multiple disk drives and it was just getting to be too much... more»

What needs improvement?

As far as the functionality goes, I haven't had a single issue with it. Rather, I've had some issues with the understandability of the interface. I think if they had someone with expertise in user interfaces to look at this, they could clean... more»

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 servers that write on the physical server to a local NAS device. That way, I can do file-level restores.

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 things involved in a backup. I have had issues with this one just in completing backups. Sometimes, for some reason, it has to run several times in order for it to do it... more»

What is most valuable?

It has the ability to backup and move to a different machine if the machine dies. I haven't been able to use this feature yet, but I know it will come in handy. The ability to move from one machine to another for backup if a machine completely fails. We have a backup of not only the machine, i.e., the hard drive and data, but we also have the ability to recover... more»

What needs improvement?

Some of the default settings out-of-the-box should already be set up for the novice user. For instance, the warnings that say a hard drive has bad sectors and stops the backup from performing. My suggestion would be to still give the warnings that there are bad sectors on the hard drive, but continue to backup. It could then offer the option of whether to stop... more»

What is most valuable?

I think just the part that is, we can configure the system. It's backing it up, every computer, as we went. The parameters, and automatically, the program does it.

How has it helped my organization?

No, just the main point is we got to back up all the information in real time. That's the point.

What needs improvement?

Well, maybe in the installation part, got to do it just a little bit ... Maybe in the installation part, if you can avoid a few things. Maybe the skip...The computer can back it up, each computer, without the username and password of the... 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... 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... more»

What is most valuable?

Backup and recovery are the main things for us. We backup using the incremental feature every two weeks. We use the full backup feature for external hard drives. They usually fill about 5 Terabytes. We then switch them out for storage offsite... more»

How has it helped my organization?

It is fast and everything is consolidated in one place. It's easier to use than Symantec, our previous solution. It's just easier and everything is all in one place. If we get more servers, there are options, moving forward, to upgrade to... more»

What needs improvement?

I can't really think of anything right now, sorry. I feel like I'm missing something.

What is most valuable?

I use the backup recovery for work station, for server, and disk director. I also like the fact they provide real support. I have human support, which is very important, and they've really improved. The software is very, very flexible, there... 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 backup. The improvement is that if something happens, I can... 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. But that's very rare. Usually the backup works fine. I... more»

What is most valuable?

A convenient way to back up Windows servers, especially given that it hasn't been convenient in the past.

How has it helped my organization?

The previous backup solutions that I've tried have failed and sometimes failed without warning and were very difficult to keep going. So a reliable backup chain was sometimes hard to keep. With Acronis, it doesn't seem to have any problems... more»

What needs improvement?

The setup, the initial setup, does different kind of Windows servers and has different kind of agents for different scenarios. Sometimes the initial setup was a little bit complicated. Their customer service did a very good, did a very good... more»
