Quotes From Members

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.

The user interface is very good. The reporting and monitoring features are also good.

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.

The data tagging feature needs improvement. The solution could be a bit more intuitive in certain aspects.

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.
