We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use. Here are some excerpts of what they said:
"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 administration is pretty flexible in terms of defining a multi-tenant type of setup."
"The licensing model is very good."
"The image backup and image restore features have been very beneficial to us."
"It's a good solution that's very easy to use. Acronis has two valuable features. The first one is creating images, and the other is starting virtual machines in the cloud so the client can work immediately."
"The web-based interface makes it easy to use."
"It actually does its job very well and has interesting capabilities, but it has the most awful interface."
"The most valuable feature is the extra protection, especially for the backup."
"Technical support has been very helpful when we have issues."
"The problems that we face are often related to the customer's network, although sometimes there are problems with the software, such as an error in the configuration."
"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."
"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 cybersecurity integration to properly round up the product and its offering. In terms of cybersecurity, if the offerings can be more versatile so that it is not just a backup solution, it would be great. Some addition to cybersecurity would really be helpful so that it becomes a kind of a suite of products. Backup and recovery form a part of the broader security strategy. Its integration with other cybersecurity solutions would provide proper visibility to not just your cybersecurity dashboard but also to all of your backups. You would have a pretty good view of the entire security landscape that you are managing."
"We have issues with the SQL databases which are a little shaky."
"They've got an agent to back up Microsoft SQL, to our Office 365, but there is not an agent to back up my SQL databases."
"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 UI, the User Interface, needs to be improved. It's not as clean or modern as it could be."
"We have a Cyber Cloud backup license and we have on-premises storage. Both can be useful for our customers."
"The price is reasonable."
"Licensing fees are billed annually and there are no extra charges."
"Its price is quite friendly on the pocket. You need to pay the licensing cost upfront, and then the support charges are on an annual basis."
"The cost of updates is less than $100 USD yearly."
"There is a license required to use this solution and it is inexpensive. However, it is an old license."
"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."
