"I have not used other backup solutions to compare how well the features work but I have found Acronis Backup to be user-friendly, overall easy to use, and performance is good."
"The administration is pretty flexible in terms of defining a multi-tenant type of setup."
"The performance has been fine so far."
"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."
"The solution has all the features I need and user friendly."
"Acronis has a very rich functionality."
"The interface is easy to use. They keep on adding new features. Acronis recently added multi-platform support."
"This solution has a feature called Domain Boost, which allows for source deduplication and compression."
"The solution is very stable."
"I find the data to be most valuable."
"The feature that I have found most useful is its data duplication."
"It's very competitive in terms of the price and technology. Also, the development team continuously makes updates. The data reduction feature is very useful."
"The most valuable feature is the performance because you can back up data really quickly."
"Data Domain is an excellent repository that's compatible with a lot of different solutions. Even Veeam Backup recommends sending backup to Data Domain. Space optimization is great. Currently, it guarantees 50-to-1 compression of the application in the same device. In all these years, I never had a client who was unsatisfied with Data Domain. It is a solid appliance with VMware integration, instant access to restore and search, and analytics."
"Good starting capacity and scalability."
"For smaller companies it's a little more challenging to maintain."
"I would like to have more hardware space. It would make it better. I would like to have two more terabytes."
"The new version has anti-malware and software management features, but these features should be enhanced. It is working as an exclusive solution along with the backup and recovery."
"It would be nice to have a partition that I can boot and reinstall when taking a backup image from the operating system."
"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 biggest problem that we have is when the antivirus is installed, the whole machine runs very slowly and some of the machines hang."
"The product would be better if they offered more integration capabilities."
"There are some limitations to the backup."
"First-time integrations are difficult in NetWorker. NetWorker software needs to be simplified. It's very complex."
"They need to make migration easier."
"The only problem is that it's more expensive than any other vendors available in the market."
"I would like to see some kind of integration with the ransomware in the next release."
"It can probably have integration with other OEMs. It should also have more features for ransomware protection."
"The price could be a little cheaper than it is now."
"We have some problems with backing up on the Power Platform. PowerServer is an IBM product, and it forces us to back up over LAN, which is not suitable for us."
"The price of the product is high."
