Quotes From Members
We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use.
Here are some excerpts of what they said:
Pros
"It has simple buying options and deployments. You can buy on-cloud, on-premises, or hybrid solutions. Acronis Backup is very easy to deploy. It also does not consume much hardware. The administrator's tasks are very simple. It is very user friendly, and it also has good security features with low-level encryption and data encryption.""The most valuable feature is the fact that it backs up my systems transparently in the background, and I'm not even conscious of it.""The administration is pretty flexible in terms of defining a multi-tenant type of setup.""The solution has all the features I need and user friendly.""The most valuable feature is the quick restoration. We can restore the data quickly.""The solution was easy to install and to deploy.""It actually does its job very well and has interesting capabilities, but it has the most awful interface.""Our customers can backup to local storage and they can back up or replicate to the cloud."

"Once you set it up and you tell it exactly what needs to be backed up, you literally forget about it. It sends you emails and notifications of the current status of the jobs.""I would definitively say that we have been able to make our people more productive by at least 30%."

Cons
"When I first started using Acronis, I found it a little bit confusing when it came to the configuration.""The product would be better if they offered more integration capabilities.""They've got an agent to back up Microsoft SQL, to our Office 365, but there is not an agent to back up my SQL databases.""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.""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.""Acronis has some limitations on the cloud side.""It supports Microsoft SQL and Microsoft Exchange, but it does not support Oracle databases or Postgres.""For smaller companies it's a little more challenging to maintain."

"They were able to give us a very reasonable price considering we were non-for-profit organizations, however, there is always room for improvement on that cost."

Pricing and Cost Advice
  • "The pricing is comparable to the newest solution available on the market, Altaro."
  • "The cost of updates is less than $100 USD yearly."
  • "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."

  • "We’ve had experience with the data center for a while and we have had solutions that were able to support older versions of the operating systems that we needed. I would like for Druva to support it as well."
