We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use. Here are some excerpts of what they said:
"It's always stable. It's very good, useful, and user-friendly."
"The licensing model is very good."
"The main reasons that our customers like Acronis are that it is very strong and easy to use."
"For my first experience, it is the best software for backups, especially for a five-system backup."
"The most valuable feature is that you can do a bare-metal restore even with dissimilar hardware."
"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."
"Acronis is a flexible solution. It can back up workstations, endpoints, and even your virtual environments and cloud-based environments. So, we can do the backup of the whole gamut of products."
"The solution is exceptional for desktop backup."
"The solution has been very stable."
"The solution could be better if some of the features were more in-depth."
"We have issues with the SQL databases which are a little shaky."
"No technical support and minimal documentation."
"In the span of six months, maintenance is done at least twice and you are told that it is coming up, with apologies for the inconvenience. It's a distraction, and it interferes with the backup schedule."
"The solution could use a single sign-on integration that can default to the admin dashboard. Right now, it's only username and password. If you had had an additional two-factor authentication, this would be beneficial for me."
"It would be better if they made it easier to obtain images for laptops and desktops. It isn't easy right now to have many different types of desktop computers. This is because Microsoft is changing a lot of things in Windows 10."
"The backing up of virtual machines in VMware and Nutanix needs better integration and the performance of the solution needs improvement."
"In some cases, at the time of reinstallation, some disasters happen. For the licensing on the computer the name of the computer and domain, everything is removed from the registry level. Then we have to install the Acronis from the start for it to work properly. Otherwise, the Acronis software will cause a lot of trouble at the time of reinstallation. That's where they need to improve the product. In the case people want to install the same software with the same hardware, it should not stop me."
"The management could be a bit better."
"You pay for what you use in the cloud. If you don't start the virtual machine in the cloud, you only pay for the information stored there. But when you start the virtual machine, another pricing model is activated."
"It is very cost-effective for the SMB segment, especially for start-ups and smaller environments. It is cost-effective for on-premises and on-cloud deployments in such environments."
"The price of the solution is expensive and could be reduced a little."
"This is an affordable product and fits within our customers' budgets."
"We have a Cyber Cloud backup license and we have on-premises storage. Both can be useful for our customers."
"There is a license required for this solution and it can be on a monthly basis."
"The pricing is comparable to the newest solution available on the market, Altaro."
"There is a license required to use this solution and it is inexpensive. However, it is an old license."
