Acronis Backup Valuable Features

Pieter Sadie - PeerSpot reviewer
Information Technology Manager at PAV Telecoms

Incremental image backups are the most valuable part of the software. Using this feature we are able to restore to any previous backup. It is more than file backup, it backs up the entire disk, containig operating system, software and data. By restoring an image to a new hard drive, we can run the restore and reboot, and immediately be back in business.

The solution is very user-friendly in terms of the interface - especially if you compare it to other solutions such as Veeam or Veritas. Even introducing it to a customer only requires a brief technical presentation as it's so easy to use.

The way they schedule backups is very intuitive. 

Users are able to get into the technical aspects very easy as everything is quite straightforward. 

The backup timing and restoring process is great compared to other options. 

There's good assistance close by in Singapore and Malaysia and from the support side, we tend to get a good response.

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.

Another valuable feature is that you could have all the information in the cloud. When you need to start working with a machine, you can do it. This is a very valuable option for our clients.

The administration is pretty flexible in terms of defining a multi-tenant type of setup. They've come up with a new feature this year, an anti-malware solution. It's focused for MSPs and enables clients and users to be setup to access only one customer or customers. The idea is great although it still needs some work. They also have a notary application to sign files as well as support for Office 365 and even Google Apps backup. We're able to back up mailboxes and OneDrive and SharePoint, things like that.

Manager, Information Technology at Genawise Australia

The most valuable feature is the fact that you can archive backups quite easily and minimize the amount of space you're using. I do full backups about once a month and differential ones most days. The fact is that it's very easy to cut out the middle ones and just keep the last differential, thus reducing the space usage.

It comes with a few extra tools that I use from time to time, such as a disk-clone utility.

The backup process is reasonably speedy. It finished the backup in a reasonable amount of time, ready to work the next day.

The best thing about it is that we can back up pretty much everything we want to. We don't have to have multiple solutions. It can back up any physical or virtual server, including servers in Azure. It can back up SharePoint, OneDrive, and G Suite. Everything we need to back up can be backed up, and that's why we like it.
