Acronis Backup Valuable Features

Pieter Sadie
Information Technology Manager at PAV Telecoms

Incremental image backups are the most valuable part of the software. Using this feature we are able to restore to any previous backup. It is more than file backup, it backs up the entire disk, containig operating system, software and data. By restoring an image to a new hard drive, we can run the restore and reboot, and immediately be back in business.

The most valuable feature is that you can do a bare-metal restore even with dissimilar hardware. I can restore my image on a Dell server that I got from an HP server, as long as the specs are in tandem if they are sufficiently processed. 

I cannot do physical to physical, it must not be like hypervisor disk without virtualization.

The built-in encryption makes this product suitable for the financial industry. Data in the manufacturing sector is different from that of financial services.

It's a good solution that's very easy to use. Acronis has two valuable features. The first one is creating images, and the other is starting virtual machines in the cloud so the client can work immediately.

Another valuable feature is that you could have all the information in the cloud. When you need to start working with a machine, you can do it. This is a very valuable option for our clients.

The web-based interface makes it easy to use.

The popularity of the product means that many people are familiar with it, which is helpful. For example, the company that supplies our hardware also deals with Acronis.

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. 

Another reason we use Acronis is that it allows you to back up a lot of data without losing too much on the time delay during the backup. Also, the amount of data that you can back up for one price is much better than other solutions where the price depends on the amount of the data being backed up.

The speed of the backup solution depends a lot on the speed being deployed on the customer side. For some customers, Acronis is a much better solution.

The main reasons that our customers like Acronis are that it is very strong and easy to use. Many of our customers use Acronis without any problems.

They have anti-ransomware active protection in the product.

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

It's like there hasn't been any clear thought of linking process to the interface model. It's a very frustrating product but what it does, it does well, which is why even for all of those reasons we still standardize on it as our preferred backup solution. But it drives us mad.

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. I just get a notice that it's successfully backed up.

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.

The most valuable feature of the solution for me is that it's a full software as a service product so deployment time will be very quick.
