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.

They are the best support that we have had so far. When you contact or email them, they are very quick to respond. They always have someone available for us. That's what we want as a customer, we want someone to listen to us.Most important is its ease of use. You plug it in, follow the steps, and you have your backup file.Whenever you have a crash or your service is not working, you can just live-boot the machine and have your service up and running.The product is easy to install and use while doing what it is expected to do.We perform backup drills to test the functionality, and we don't have any problems.Easy, immediate protection for data that is virtually infinitely scalable.The scalability of the product is fine.

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.

We cannot backup Sun Micro systems. They are not currently supported.When we manage the box physically, we don't have as much control as we do when we manage from the cloud. The best management is from the cloud.I would like to see the Live Boot feature extended to Hyper-V machines, in addition to VMware machines.Some features like CIFS are not supported that would help speed and flexibility.I would like to see the automatic backup of critical applications to the cloud.The solution needs fine-grained backup capabilities to service individual users. But this is a minor issue considering all that the product does.It is not always stable.

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.

You don't need to buy an extra license or agent. With one box, you have licenses for any amount of devices that you want to backed up for whatever is backed up.You have two options, which we have. We pay for it bi-monthly. Then, you can purchase the project hours and support annually.The price of the five-year contract was approximately three million Rupees ($42,000 USD).Low, fixed cost with great savings.
