"The most valuable features we have found are the flexibility in the services offered.""The solution has an effective overwrite feature.""The most valuable feature is the daily incremental site backup.""The replication in the recovery region is the most valuable feature.""When I was using an on-premises backup, there was an external hard drive or something like that. I had a backup server, but I had a few problems related to transfer when I had to restore something that I have deleted. I had to wait for after-office hours to do something like that, but now I just have to send a mail. Within one hour, I have my restored file.""The most valuable feature is its ease of use."

Cons
"I would like to see enhancements made to the security.""Slow response from technical support.""Technical support needs to be improved because they do not respond in a timely fashion.""There could be some changes done to the action page to simplify it.""I would like to have support for agentless backup, where you don't have to install an agent on the host.""The technical support could be improved. When you create a ticket, the responsiveness you'd expect is lacking.""The solution could improve by being more user-friendly.""Reporting is not on par. It needs some more information as per customer or partner interest. I hope Acronis is working on it."

More Acronis Backup Cloud Cons »

"Only the price could be improved.""The AWS Backup backend reporting is a major area that needs improvement. We would be very excited if we can see some reporting, such as trends. We do understand that there are reports available for S3 Bucket, in which the AWS backend stores the data. However, if we can receive holistic reporting, then it would be very helpful for us.""One of the limitations of AWS Backup is that it only does file-based copying.""If AWS Backup were a hybrid solution that also supported on-premises backups then it would be very helpful, especially if you are doing a migration to the cloud.""This backup tool does the full backup of the entire snapshot server. I would like to have the option to not do the full server backup.""The notifications on the backup and on the mobile app could be more useful. If they could arrange notes or notifications properly and offer services for managing it in our region, it would be helpful for us."

More Acronis Backup Cloud Pricing and Cost Advice »

"There is a lot of flexibility with the services and pricing. The price is reasonable when compared to other products. This is very good for us.""We don't use a lot of space, only approximately 900 GB, so the price is reasonable. For standing, it's okay. We normally do a payment to SSML, and they are the ones who pay over there. It is around $100 monthly."
