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.""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."

"This solution was surprisingly easy to configure.""Creating a backup task in NAKIVO is fast and easy.""We spend less time to get data recovered.""Perfect for someone who doesn't want to waste time.""Nakivo gives users confidence in knowing that if something happens with their application server, exchange server, or other applications, they can recover it easily and quickly.""It is fast, simple, powerful, and has a price without competition.""It is flexible.""It is affordable."

Cons
"This is not a feature-rich solution.""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."

More Acronis Backup Cons »

"An improvement would be to give us more control over the email alerts, with different emails going to different addresses based on a set of rules.""I think it is important to work not only in replicating the virtual machines in Amazon AWS, but in other cloud systems.""An improvement would be to include a general data backup solution that is not only for virtual machines.""It is missing the file and folder backup; however, this product is meant for virtual machine backup and recovery, so that is really outside of the scope of the software.""We want the backup job to consume fewer resources, as the utilization is very high if we choose the best compression.""I would like to have the option of creating a subfolder per job in the backup repository because we had an issue where some files were corrupted and we lost the backup of the majority of the VMs.""The interface might be improved, but the interface of every product might be improved.""While the solution provides mostly what we need, it would be ideal if there were some additional feature capabilities for the API."

Pricing and Cost Advice
"Our licensing fees are on a yearly basis.""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."

"It has a much higher bang for the buck than other products we evaluated.""The price is not a problem in NAKIVO, as it is the most competitive in the market.""It's really cheap, and our company saves a significant amount of money on IT backup solutions per year.""Pricing is easy to understand and very affordable.""I advise that this is the best product for medium or small environments according to my cost-benefit analysis.""You have a lot of different options when it comes to pricing and the pricing models are pretty flexible and affordable.""The product is quite cheap compared to other products on the market, but despite this, it is rich in features both at the level of backup and recovery as well as at the level of additional options.""Nakivo Backup & Replication also have another great value, which is that it is one of the lowest prices on the market."
