Cons
"It would be nice to have a partition that I can boot and reinstall when taking a backup image from the operating system.""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.""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.""The backing up of virtual machines in VMware and Nutanix needs better integration and the performance of the solution needs improvement.""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.""The solution could improve by providing more database backup features and have better integration with many different types of databases. We cannot implement it in all of our infrastructures.""The technical support of Acronis Backup could improve. They have the depth of knowledge but the speed of the response could be quicker.""There are some limitations to the backup."

More Acronis Backup Cons →

"The replication feature is not available.""IBM Spectrum Protect Plus could improve security.""You end up needing to do a lot of troubleshooting to get things to work effectively.""It still needs to grow and add new features.
