We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use. Here are some excerpts of what they said:
"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."
"This is a full software so deployment time is very quick."
"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."
"Our customers can backup to local storage and they can back up or replicate to the cloud."
"For my first experience, it is the best software for backups, especially for a five-system backup."
"The backup timing and restoring process is great compared to other options."
"The most valuable feature is the quick restoration. We can restore the data quickly."
"The image backup and image restore features have been very beneficial to us."
"The solution has the capability to scale well."
"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."
"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."
"The biggest problem that we have is when the antivirus is installed, the whole machine runs very slowly and some of the machines hang."
"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."
"They can include something called a backup appliance. Although Acronis is a software-driven company, it would be good for customers to have some kind of backup appliance on top of a lightweight operating system. This will also reduce the cost. Currently, the customers have to buy the hardware in addition to the operating system, which increases the overhead in terms of procurement."
"The solution could be better if some of the features were more in-depth."
"No technical support and minimal documentation."
"When I first started using Acronis, I found it a little bit confusing when it came to the configuration."
"I don't have any feedback to provide in terms of features that may be lacking."
"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."
"The pricing is comparable to the newest solution available on the market, Altaro."
"The cost of updates is less than $100 USD yearly."
"We were on a perpetual license for Acronis Backup."
"The price is reasonable."
"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."
