Acronis Backup Valuable Features

Information Technology Manager at PAV Telecoms

Incremental image backups are the most valuable part of the software. Using this feature we are able to restore to any previous backup. It is more than file backup, it backs up the entire disk, containig operating system, software and data. By restoring an image to a new hard drive, we can run the restore and reboot, and immediately be back in business.

The solution is very user-friendly in terms of the interface - especially if you compare it to other solutions such as Veeam or Veritas. Even introducing it to a customer only requires a brief technical presentation as it's so easy to use.

The way they schedule backups is very intuitive. 

Users are able to get into the technical aspects very easy as everything is quite straightforward. 

The backup timing and restoring process is great compared to other options. 

There's good assistance close by in Singapore and Malaysia and from the support side, we tend to get a good response.

The most valuable feature is that you can do a bare-metal restore even with dissimilar hardware. I can restore my image on a Dell server that I got from an HP server, as long as the specs are in tandem if they are sufficiently processed. 

I cannot do physical to physical, it must not be like hypervisor disk without virtualization.

The built-in encryption makes this product suitable for the financial industry. Data in the manufacturing sector is different from that of financial services.

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.

Another valuable feature is that you could have all the information in the cloud. When you need to start working with a machine, you can do it. This is a very valuable option for our clients.

The administration is pretty flexible in terms of defining a multi-tenant type of setup. They've come up with a new feature this year, an anti-malware solution. It's focused for MSPs and enables clients and users to be setup to access only one customer or customers. The idea is great although it still needs some work. They also have a notary application to sign files as well as support for Office 365 and even Google Apps backup. We're able to back up mailboxes and OneDrive and SharePoint, things like that.

The web-based interface makes it easy to use.

The popularity of the product means that many people are familiar with it, which is helpful. For example, the company that supplies our hardware also deals with Acronis.

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. 

Another reason we use Acronis is that it allows you to back up a lot of data without losing too much on the time delay during the backup. Also, the amount of data that you can back up for one price is much better than other solutions where the price depends on the amount of the data being backed up.

The speed of the backup solution depends a lot on the speed being deployed on the customer side. For some customers, Acronis is a much better solution.

It actually does its job very well and has interesting capabilities, but it has the most awful interface. 

It's like there hasn't been any clear thought of linking process to the interface model. It's a very frustrating product but what it does, it does well, which is why even for all of those reasons we still standardize on it as our preferred backup solution. But it drives us mad.

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. I just get a notice that it's successfully backed up.
