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. View full review »

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. View full review »

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. View full review »

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.
