We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use. Here are some excerpts of what they said:
"The most valuable feature is the extra protection, especially for the backup."
"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."
"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."
"The licensing model is very good."
"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 most valuable feature is the quick restoration. We can restore the data quickly."
"It's always stable. It's very good, useful, and user-friendly."
"No problems with stability."
"For virtualization it's perfect."
"I have found the backup call feature very good."
"It's not complex to replicate and back up the system."
"Veeam is quick, easy to work with, and its support for Microsoft products is good. They also provide adequate solutions for backing up Microsoft applications in the cloud, such as Office 365."
"The most valuable feature is how reliable Veeam Backup is. It has the normal expected features that allow you to ensure that everything is backed up completely."
"The initial setup is pretty straightforward."
"One of the most valuable features is the simplicity of the solution's administration."
"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 some cases, at the time of reinstallation, some disasters happen. For the licensing on the computer the name of the computer and domain, everything is removed from the registry level. Then we have to install the Acronis from the start for it to work properly. Otherwise, the Acronis software will cause a lot of trouble at the time of reinstallation. That's where they need to improve the product. In the case people want to install the same software with the same hardware, it should not stop me."
"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."
"They've got an agent to back up Microsoft SQL, to our Office 365, but there is not an agent to back up my SQL databases."
"When I first started using Acronis, I found it a little bit confusing when it came to the configuration."
"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."
"The solution could be better if some of the features were more in-depth."
"The backing up of virtual machines in VMware and Nutanix needs better integration and the performance of the solution needs improvement."
"I would like a solution for SAP systems to be included."
"Limited support for environments other than VMware or Microsoft."
"The solution is rather weak when it comes to database integration."
"I would like to see the Veeam cloud solution and Microsoft Office 365 included all in one platform."
"I don't see much room for improvement except that the price could be better."
"Backup speed should be increased, and there should be more functionality."
"The reporting feature can be improved."
"One challenge that we have encountered was on the long-term retention of data. Be sure to look into a dedicated deduplication appliance."
"The price of the solution is expensive and could be reduced a little."
"The price is reasonable."
"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."
"This is an affordable product and fits within our customers' budgets."
"The pricing is comparable to the newest solution available on the market, Altaro."
"We have a Cyber Cloud backup license and we have on-premises storage. Both can be useful for our customers."
"The pricing is reasonable. However, it depends on the storage that you use. It would be great to have a package that we can use up to a certain size of the backup, this would allow us to know what the price is going to be up to that capacity."
"The cost of updates is less than $100 USD yearly."
"Overall, I'm not happy with the pricing. The price could be improved. Every year, most vendors try to increase the price. It says it's being upgraded, but there's no improvement. The product stays the same, but the licensing costs are increasing."
"It is relatively cheap."
"It's a proper price, as it isn't an issue for what Veeam Backup & Replication is giving us. Obviously, we are paying licensing for our physical VMware environment. It also depends on how the VMware environment is on the side. We have a few very big nodes. So, we need a few licenses and maybe if people had more nodes and sockets and each node was managing less information, machine supplies could be different."
"This solution requires a license and the organizations I was involved in were using an enterprise license."
"The license is a bit expensive."
"Veeam is more reasonably priced than some competing products."
"They have a free edition that can back up up to 10 VMs or physical servers. Small and medium businesses can use this edition until they can afford to get a license, and after they get a license, they just activate it on the same console. That's the amazing thing about it."
"We spend hundreds of thousands of dollars on Veeam each year, although it is not expensive for what we get."
