"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."
"The main reasons that our customers like Acronis are that it is very strong and easy to use."
"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 most valuable feature is the extra protection, especially for the backup."
"One of the features I have found most valuable is the restore point - it gives us what we need at the time we need it. The important thing is that the backup for Acronis doesn't depend as much on the device."
"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 solution is exceptional for desktop backup."
"The most valuable feature is that you can do a bare-metal restore even with dissimilar hardware."
"Before using Nakivo Backup & Replication, all our data backup processes took a long time and did not optimize the disk space reserved for backup. With the introduction of Nakivo Backup & Replication, saving times have been reduced by almost half (thanks to the use of several simultaneous transporters) and the space occupied has also had a very important reduction."
"The updates are problem-free, so we can keep Nakivo up to date on the server and NAS too."
"We have found all the features of Nakivo to be useful and the solution is easier to use compared to Proxmox. It is user-friendly, we are very satisfied."
"The product license and support delivery have been great!"
"The features that we like the most are the Backup Copy and Active Directory Integration. They have helped us to save a lot of time since we do not have to make the backup copies “by hand”."
"This enables us to do quick granular file recovery as and when required but also to do whole-site relocation in the case of a total loss scenario."
"This product has a very clean and intuitive GUI."
"The user interface in general is very good. I"
"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 whole product structure is confusing. You can actually get to do what you want to do. But Acronis seems to have a singular ability to make things difficult."
"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 solution could be better if some of the features were more in-depth."
"When an error occurs, the information is not always easy to understand and these messages should be made more clear."
"In the span of six months, maintenance is done at least twice and you are told that it is coming up, with apologies for the inconvenience. It's a distraction, and it interferes with the backup schedule."
"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."
"There are some limitations to the backup."
"Due to the fact that we are HP and Fugit partners as well, it would be nice if Nakivo would allow support for HP and Fugit storage."
"At the moment I am pleased with what Nakivo does but I would like more reporting functions and if possible, integration with my RMM system."
"There are many features we have not had the opportunity to try, such as Tape Backups, Office 365 backups, and many other things."
"It would be good to have some Oracle database backup capability from the Linux OS in the next release."
"It would be great if they had a Let's Encrypt integration."
"From our experience, the main factor that could be improved is adding more cloud services that are supported as a backup repository."
"There could be better integration with other solutions, such as Amazon S3."
"I would like to have a built-in SNMP client, which is important if we want to monitor it using Zabbix, Nagios, or another monitoring solution."
