Drastically reduces the time spent on backup administration; we can manage every computer from one easy console

What is our primary use case?

We use MSP Backup & Recovery for just about any backup system, as long as it is running Windows or Windows Server. We also have a couple of clients that have databases to back up. It does a very good job of automatically picking up an SQL or a MySQL database. If we need to restore just the database to another machine, although we don't have too many use cases for that, we have been able to do it when we tested it. We use it for virtual machine backup and recovery as well. It does a great job of that. So even if a client has a host system and, say, one VM running on it for a special purpose… more »

Pros and Cons

  • "The most valuable feature by far is the Virtual Disaster Recovery. On top of that is the bare-metal recovery. The recovery options that we have are great. We have tested the Virtual Disaster Recovery and the bare-metal recovery in just about any scenario you can think of. We have even restored bare metal, a full server, to a laptop, and had full functionality. It's just insane how well it works and how simple it is. It does most of the work for you."
  • "A better default view on my dashboard would be great. There is a lot of useless information there that it pulls up. They could present the dashboard slightly better, in terms of the extra information after the first five columns. The first five columns are awesome. After that, I don't care about the rest, and there are another seven things after that."

What other advice do I have?

The biggest lesson I've learned from using MSP Backup & Recovery is that there are options out there that I can be confident in, and I don't feel like I have to break a customer's bank to offer them. It's a really big deal for us to be able to do that. Having tested it and used it at this level, it's changed so much how we view what can be done, for keeping even our small customers' data safe. Before, it felt like I had to do a lot of extra things for the smaller places, because they couldn't afford the solutions that were better. Now I have something that I can trust to just do that for them…

Reduces the amount of manual work required to manage our backup operations

What is our primary use case?

We use it for backup and disaster recovery. We protect Windows and Linux servers, Windows 10, SQL, and Office 365.

Pros and Cons

  • "Integration with Active Directory and the Azure platform make it a complete solution."
  • "It's very easy to set up the storage across all platforms. This allows us to be dynamic and change on-the-fly."
  • "There is room for improvement in the Knowledge Base and error reporting. I would like to see best practices in the Knowledge Base, and have the ability to diagnose errors without contacting support."

What other advice do I have?

Take your time to run the trial and understand what you're getting yourself into. The move from on-premise to a cloud solution is definitely a change. Be patient with the process and open to understanding the SaaS solution.

Easy to use, affordable, strong and quick support, and built-in ransomware protection

What is our primary use case?

We are a solution provider and Acronis Backup is one of the products that we implement for our customers.

Pros and Cons

  • "The main reasons that our customers like Acronis are that it is very strong and easy to use."
  • "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."

What other advice do I have?

We are currently testing the new version, 15. Based on our experience, we have been providing input to their pre-sales team, and the feedback was taken back to the management. Now, everything seems to be running fine. For example, in the new version, they have more protection options for malware, and they have additional tools to assist the IT administrator in controlling the network. These including things like management tools for remote desktops and vulnerability management. Any customer who uses Acronis that has needed to restore anything from their backup has had a 99% success rate, where…

Easy to install, configure, and use, but better integration with cloud solutions is needed

What is our primary use case?

We are a solution provider and this is one of the products that we implement for our customers. We have done several PoCs for our clients.

Pros and Cons

  • "I like this product because it is easy to use."
  • "Better integration with cloud-based solutions like Azure and Office 365 is needed."

What other advice do I have?

This is a product that works well, is easy to install, and easy to use. I would recommend it over other solutions. I would rate this solution a seven out of ten.
