Quotes From Members

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

Pros
"It actually does its job very well and has interesting capabilities, but it has the most awful interface.""This is a full software so deployment time is very quick.""The web-based interface makes it easy to use.""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.""The most valuable feature is that you can do a bare-metal restore even with dissimilar hardware.""It's always stable. It's very good, useful, and user-friendly.""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.""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."

Cons
"The whole product structure is confusing. You can actually get to do what you want to do. But Acronis seems to have a singular ability to make things difficult.""No technical support and minimal documentation.""When an error occurs, the information is not always easy to understand and these messages should be made more clear.""For smaller companies it's a little more challenging to maintain.""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.""I would like to have more hardware space. It would make it better. I would like to have two more terabytes.""When I first started using Acronis, I found it a little bit confusing when it came to the configuration.""They can include something called a backup appliance. Although Acronis is a software-driven company, it would be good for customers to have some kind of backup appliance on top of a lightweight operating system. This will also reduce the cost. Currently, the customers have to buy the hardware in addition to the operating system, which increases the overhead in terms of procurement."

Pricing and Cost Advice
"The pricing is comparable to the newest solution available on the market, Altaro.""The cost of updates is less than $100 USD yearly.""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.""This is an affordable product and fits within our customers' budgets.""Licensing fees are billed annually and there are no extra charges.""The price of the solution is expensive and could be reduced a little.""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.""We have a Cyber Cloud backup license and we have on-premises storage. Both can be useful for our customers."
