"The most valuable feature is that you can do a bare-metal restore even with dissimilar hardware."
"The image backup and image restore features have been very beneficial to us."
"The performance has been fine so far."
"Our customers can backup to local storage and they can back up or replicate to the cloud."
"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."
"It's always stable. It's very good, useful, and user-friendly."
"In my opinion, it's the best product for end-users and PCs."
"Acronis Backup is easy to use."
"The solution has the capability to scale well."
"The recovery time objective and recovery point objective were most valuable. It was easy to use, and it was easy to recover a file. I was the head of sales and a product evaluator for an MSSP, so I never had to deal with recovery from ransomware. However, I was confident that if ransomware had occurred, I would only lose a maximum of 59 minutes of data. The files were encrypted."
"Acronis has some limitations on the cloud side."
"For smaller companies it's a little more challenging to maintain."
"It would be better if they made it easier to obtain images for laptops and desktops. It isn't easy right now to have many different types of desktop computers. This is because Microsoft is changing a lot of things in Windows 10."
"The technical support of Acronis Backup could improve. They have the depth of knowledge but the speed of the response could be quicker."
"It could have a better ability to manage backups over a longer period."
"The problems that we face are often related to the customer's network, although sometimes there are problems with the software, such as an error in the configuration."
"The product would be better if they offered more integration capabilities."
"Acronis Backup isn't scalable at all."
"I don't have any feedback to provide in terms of features that may be lacking."
"At the time I was using it, I would've focused more on signatures of malicious software in the cloud. I love Datto, and I know they're on the right path, but I probably would've focused more on the operating system update management. When you go from the desk to the cloud or from the server room to the cloud, everything changes. Everything is different. You're not in control of your servers anymore. It is from the Active Directory management perspective and not from the perspective of zero-day attacks or other similar things. At the time, more focus on zero-day attacks and business email compromise (BEC) would've been a better protection factor than just educating about how many of these attacks have occurred."
