"The solution is exceptional for desktop backup."
"The web-based interface makes it easy to use."
"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."
"In my opinion, it's the best product for end-users and PCs."
"The solution has all the features I need and user friendly."
"The administration is pretty flexible in terms of defining a multi-tenant type of setup."
"The main reasons that our customers like Acronis are that it is very strong and easy to use."
"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."
"The interface is user-friendly and even if our tech isn't onsite, we can work with the owners to confirm that the data will be restored with no issues."
"The CDP backup feature is very nice, as it allows you to take backups at high frequencies and with application consistency."
"It is an excellent product. It is easy to deploy, stable, and fast. Their support is excellent."
"One improvement that could be made is adding the option to download files in a PST format when doing a 365 or Google Cloud to cloud backup."
"The product would be better if they offered more integration capabilities."
"The biggest problem that we have is when the antivirus is installed, the whole machine runs very slowly and some of the machines hang."
"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 improve by providing more database backup features and have better integration with many different types of databases. We cannot implement it in all of our infrastructures."
"I would like to have more hardware space. It would make it better. I would like to have two more terabytes."
"The whole product structure is confusing. You can actually get to do what you want to do. But Acronis seems to have a singular ability to make things difficult."
"We needed to have help from the vendor for implementation. The vendor used two personnel. We have system administrators and they do the server backups themself."
"The application could include a feature to install a set size of data, such as the ability to store a single application with all its registry information for easy transfer."
"Basically, how it works is that you have a single local drive, and then you have a cloud backup. It'd be nice if you could rotate the single local backup drive. As of now, you can't."
"To improve Altaro, I would like to see the ability to choose more than one backup location at a time."
