We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use. Here are some excerpts of what they said:

Pros
The most valuable feature is its consistency.The ability to clone backups.​I have everything I need in the backup or in the partition. ​It works with different types of partitions or different OSs.Stability is always good. I have used Acronis for 10 years now, if not more. I have never had a problem with availability, etc.It is a very fast and reliable backup, which requires less management and restores quickly.​The user interface (UI) is easy to use.It is fast and easy for an image-based backup across all platforms.

Cons
This is not a feature-rich solution.I would like to see better centralized management, because I use it across multiple clients. To have a console that centrally manages them would be nice.I would ​change the GUI a little to make it a bit more interactive. It should have a slightly more updated look, not something which looks like it was designed five years ago despite the fact it is easy to follow and very appealing.​​It would be nice if it could support more types of storage: EMC, HPE, Veeam, etc.If there was a wizard that would lead you down a road, when creating a backup, that would probably be better than having to go online or call somebody to actually do a backup. It's not intuitive...I can't select a network location. I have to map a drive on the server, and then I have to select the mapped drive in order for it to put the backup out there.It would be nice to have it on the cloud platform without using third-party equipment.

In the most recent version of premium plus the replication has been removed, and it should re-added to the solution.The only problem with the solution is that when I change the drive capacity, it has to do a full backup. It's a problem when I have five servers to backup. When I only want to change the size of the drive, I have to do a full backup that can take one week.It should be easier to switch between backup locations. We have multiple data storage locations and sometimes one of those storages need to be replaced. It would be nice if they made it easier to reconfigure the backup configuration.Every time I change the disc, I have to do a full backup.We cannot restore each user's mailbox. Each user's mailbox should be independently restorable. Also, this solution is very slow. If you select all of the servers, it runs for a long time... It needs to be faster. Finally, If anything happens to one server we should be able to switch to another server.

Pricing and Cost Advice
Our licensing fees are on a yearly basis.​I like the pricing​, and that it is easy to use and has performed well. ​When it comes to elements like cost, I think it is the only backup solution which has perpetual licenses, whereby you buy the license once and for all.

Normally our customers purchase the premium plus license, rather than the standard one, which provides more options.We only have the maintenance of three standard UDP licenses. Each license is 50 Euro. There are some additional costs for the storage and software but it has nothing to do with the UDP.I do not work with the pricing or licensing issues of the solution for our organization.
