"The image backup and image restore features have been very beneficial to us."
"For local backups, it has options to back up almost any storage. The back can be either a shared folder or anything you want, it's pretty flexible."
"The most valuable feature is the extra protection, especially for the backup."
"Acronis Backup is easy to use."
"The most valuable feature is the fact that you can archive backups quite easily and minimize the amount of space you're using."
"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 backup timing and restoring process is great compared to other options."
"The solution is stable and reliable."
"The most valuable features are the special plugins such as SAP HANA databases, Microsoft SQL, and various types of virtualization."
"It is easy to scale Bacula Enterprise even if your system is growing tremendously in data and servers."
"It can be used in virtually any environment we have onsite."
"The solution has extensive documentation and a very active community."
"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."
"The backing up of virtual machines in VMware and Nutanix needs better integration and the performance of the solution needs improvement."
"The solution could be better if some of the features were more in-depth."
"It could back up more things. I don't think it can back up Box and some of the other third-party ones. Not that we use them that much, but the more they can do, the better it would be. There could also be better integrations with RMM tools."
"The biggest problem that we have is when the antivirus is installed, the whole machine runs very slowly and some of the machines hang."
"When you are using enterprise hardware and software that increases over time, there need to be better and more management features. For pure backup software, it is fine, but when it comes to managing a large infrastructure it is lacking."
"It supports Microsoft SQL and Microsoft Exchange, but it does not support Oracle databases or Postgres."
"The product would be better if they offered more integration capabilities."
"We are looking for a unique interface that can rule both enterprise and open source editions. Such a thing does not yet exist."
"A more user-friendly interface (GUI) can be developed."
"The initial setup could be a bit easier."
"We would like to see an improvement in the functionality of the GUI."
