Acronis Backup Primary Use Case

Pieter Sadie - PeerSpot reviewer
Information Technology Manager at PAV Telecoms

I use the product to protect key servers and workstations. We run mission critical servers where downtime cannot be afforded. Acronis is the only solution I trust to get us back up and running after a major catastrophe.

My clients use it for disaster recovery events. Because of the ERP systems they have, these types of events need a space in the cloud to work immediately and recover the capacity for people to work in the company.

We use Acronis Backup to create a backup policy and schedule to create backup images. We have an incremental backup for images and file-level backups. However, we never restore, test to restore, we have not done it yet.

We are trying to restore from the backups that the supplier help us to create, but we are having problems restoring. It is because the backups are created inside a virtual server and we want to restore it to a Hyper-V environment. We have attempted the process for approximately three weeks, and we have yet to find a solution to our problem.

We are only using Acronis Backup to create a backup plan, and the storage is within our premises. In one or two months, we will create a backup plan that will involve creating a backup from our premises to another location that is approximately 300 kilometers away. Then we will test how Acronis Backup will perform.

The most important use case is to backup notebooks and other environments of the completed image and to back up global environment imaging and you can leverage the backup when you are making a migration as well.

We installed the Acronis Backup agents on the user's computer stations that require backups. We then created a schedule and a backup policy. Additionally, we deployed Acronis Backup on the Windows Server. I connected with the local discs of the server, which will be the targets of the backups.
