Quotes From Members

We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use. Here are some excerpts of what they said:

Pros
"The image backup and image restore features have been very beneficial to us.""It's always stable. It's very good, useful, and user-friendly.""The web-based interface makes it easy to use.""The most valuable feature is the extra protection, especially for the backup.""The backup timing and restoring process is great compared to other options.""The most valuable feature is that you can do a bare-metal restore even with dissimilar hardware.""The licensing model is very good.""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."

More Acronis Backup Pros »

"It is an excellent product. It is easy to deploy, stable, and fast. Their support is excellent.""The CDP backup feature is very nice, as it allows you to take backups at high frequencies and with application consistency.""The interface is user-friendly and even if our tech isn't onsite, we can work with the owners to confirm that the data will be restored with no issues."

Cons
"There are some limitations to the backup.""When I first started using Acronis, I found it a little bit confusing when it came to the configuration.""It supports Microsoft SQL and Microsoft Exchange, but it does not support Oracle databases or Postgres.""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.""When an error occurs, the information is not always easy to understand and these messages should be made more clear.""When you are using enterprise hardware and software that increases over time, there need to be better and more management features. For pure backup software, it is fine, but when it comes to managing a large infrastructure it is lacking.""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.""The backing up of virtual machines in VMware and Nutanix needs better integration and the performance of the solution needs improvement."

More Acronis Backup Cons »

"The application could include a feature to install a set size of data, such as the ability to store a single application with all its registry information for easy transfer.""Basically, how it works is that you have a single local drive, and then you have a cloud backup. It'd be nice if you could rotate the single local backup drive. As of now, you can't.""To improve Altaro, I would like to see the ability to choose more than one backup location at a time."

Pricing and Cost Advice
"There is a license required to use this solution and it is inexpensive. However, it is an old license.""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.""The price is reasonable.""The cost of updates is less than $100 USD yearly.""This is an affordable product and fits within our customers' budgets.""The price of the solution is expensive and could be reduced a little.""Licensing fees are billed annually and there are no extra charges.""We have a Cyber Cloud backup license and we have on-premises storage. Both can be useful for our customers."

More Acronis Backup Pricing and Cost Advice »

"The price is great for the utility you get and the licensing has never caused any issues with my company.""Altaro had the best prices and ROI in the whole bunch that we evaluated.""Its yearly maintenance fee is fairly high for me to renew for upgrades and support."
