We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use. Here are some excerpts of what they said:
"The licensing model is very good."
"The main reasons that our customers like Acronis are that it is very strong and easy to use."
"The most valuable feature is the quick restoration. We can restore the data quickly."
"The solution is exceptional for desktop backup."
"The image backup and image restore features have been very beneficial to us."
"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."
"It actually does its job very well and has interesting capabilities, but it has the most awful interface."
"The solution has all the features I need and user friendly."
"Offers good recovery quickly."
"For smaller companies it's a little more challenging to maintain."
"There are some limitations to the backup."
"I would like to have more cybersecurity integration to properly round up the product and its offering. In terms of cybersecurity, if the offerings can be more versatile so that it is not just a backup solution, it would be great. Some addition to cybersecurity would really be helpful so that it becomes a kind of a suite of products. Backup and recovery form a part of the broader security strategy. Its integration with other cybersecurity solutions would provide proper visibility to not just your cybersecurity dashboard but also to all of your backups. You would have a pretty good view of the entire security landscape that you are managing."
"We have issues with the SQL databases which are a little shaky."
"We have sometimes issues with the child copies and other similar functions, but it's normal with any backup solution. We need to fix those issues first in order for us to be able to do the backup properly."
"I would like to have more hardware space. It would make it better. I would like to have two more terabytes."
"The backing up of virtual machines in VMware and Nutanix needs better integration and the performance of the solution needs improvement."
"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."
"Lacks the ability to protect the database snapshot."
"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."
"We have a Cyber Cloud backup license and we have on-premises storage. Both can be useful for our customers."
"Licensing fees are billed annually and there are no extra charges."
"The price is reasonable."
"The cost of updates is less than $100 USD yearly."
"There is a license required for this solution and it can be on a monthly basis."
