Quotes From Members
We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use.
Here are some excerpts of what they said:
Pros
"Acronis Backup is easy to use, intuitive, and has high performance.""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.""The most valuable features of Acronis Backup are instant restore, antivirus, and ransomware protection. Additionally, the documentation is good.""One of the most valuable features of Acronis is its AnyData Engine which allows any device to connect to any other device for the purpose of data restoration.""The backup timing and restoring process is great compared to other options.""The solution is stable and reliable.""For my first experience, it is the best software for backups, especially for a five-system backup.""The most valuable feature is the quick restoration. We can restore the data quickly."

"The backup feature for this product is good. It is easy to set up and easy to scale.""The best feature of Dell EMC NetWorker is its wide spectrum of available plugins for each and every software that you can back up, such as SAP HANA, Oracle, AXI-based machines, or Dell-based machines. Whatever you want to back up, you can do it with Dell EMC NetWorker. It is a very solid backup software. It is the oldest backup software from EMC, and it comes from Dell EMC's legacy.""There are no problems in terms of stability.""It's easy to use.""The solution has a longer lifespan.""If it's set up the right way, it's a stable product.""The extensive information provided on tool properties has been very useful, specifically the information on databases""Technical support is good."

Cons
"The backing up of virtual machines in VMware and Nutanix needs better integration and the performance of the solution needs improvement.""Acronis has some limitations on the cloud side.""There are some limitations to the backup.""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 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.""I would like to have more cybersecurity integration to properly round up the product and its offering. In terms of cybersecurity, if the offerings can be more versatile so that it is not just a backup solution, it would be great. Some addition to cybersecurity would really be helpful so that it becomes a kind of a suite of products. Backup and recovery form a part of the broader security strategy. Its integration with other cybersecurity solutions would provide proper visibility to not just your cybersecurity dashboard but also to all of your backups. You would have a pretty good view of the entire security landscape that you are managing.""Acronis Backup isn't scalable at all."

More Acronis Backup Cons →

"The team does not have enough knowledge to support you.""The user interface is hard to use, it should be simplified. There are a lot of web-based management interfaces which they should consider.""The initial setup is complex.""The web console could be a lot better.""The data storage capabilities should be improved.""In the next release, I would like to see better pricing and more integration with the other products in Dell EMC.""They need more support for image backups.""When you're working with VMware, you need to use vProxy machines. You have to install the vProxy for every host in the VMware environment."

Pricing and Cost Advice
  • "It is very cost-effective for the SMB segment, especially for start-ups and smaller environments. It is cost-effective for on-premises and on-cloud deployments in such environments."
  • "This is an affordable product and fits within our customers' budgets."
  • "Licensing fees are billed annually and there are no extra charges."
  • "The price of the solution is expensive and could be reduced a little."
  • "You pay for what you use in the cloud. If you don't start the virtual machine in the cloud, you only pay for the information stored there. But when you start the virtual machine, another pricing model is activated."
  • "We have a Cyber Cloud backup license and we have on-premises storage. Both can be useful for our customers."
  • "There is a license required for this solution and it can be on a monthly basis."
  • "Its price is quite friendly on the pocket. You need to pay the licensing cost upfront, and then the support charges are on an annual basis."

  • "If you purchase Avamar, NetWorker is free with Avamar, for one terabyte license capacity."
  • "It is excellent from the pricing point of view. It is free with Data Protection Suite. Similarly, when you purchase Avamar, Dell EMC NetWorker is free with one terabyte license capacity. Its price is very competitive."
  • "The price is a little on the high side, but it's reliable and provides a good service."
  • "It is not very expensive and not very cheap."
  • "They are not cheap."
  • "Licensing is based on the number of terabytes, so you need to purchase packages."
  • "There is a licensing fee."
  • "We do need to purchase a license, but sometimes, it comes as a part of the Dell Data Protection Suite (DPS). It has a capacity-based licensing."
