Quotes From Members
We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use.
Here are some excerpts of what they said:
Pros
"The most valuable feature is the extra protection, especially for the backup.""The interface is easy to use. They keep on adding new features. Acronis recently added multi-platform support.""In my opinion, it's the best product for end-users and PCs.""The administration is pretty flexible in terms of defining a multi-tenant type of setup.""Our customers can backup to local storage and they can back up or replicate to the cloud.""The backup timing and restoring process is great compared to other options.""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.""It's always stable. It's very good, useful, and user-friendly."

"Its dashboard is quite well done. When you log into the GUI, you can basically see everything you need to know. There is also the possibility to edit the view as you like, which is great.""Having the web-based interface is important to us because we can access it from any computer in the network, rather than having it installed and available for use only on a specific one.""The user interface is good.""The interface is very user-friendly."

Cons
"I would like to have more hardware space. It would make it better. I would like to have two more terabytes.""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.""They can include something called a backup appliance. Although Acronis is a software-driven company, it would be good for customers to have some kind of backup appliance on top of a lightweight operating system. This will also reduce the cost. Currently, the customers have to buy the hardware in addition to the operating system, which increases the overhead in terms of procurement.""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.""The product would be better if they offered more integration capabilities.""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.""One improvement that could be made is adding the option to download files in a PST format when doing a 365 or Google Cloud to cloud backup."

"In the next version, I would like to see support for the MongoDB database. As it is now, there is no component that works with it and we cannot back the data up using NetVault.""There are certain issues with the product that we report to Quest, and we get offered a workaround instead of a fix. There could be better interaction with the development teams, perhaps in terms of transparency.""I would like to see the option of cloud-based management.""There are command-line limitations. There is not a very strong possibility to work with the command line. The commands that are there are not that powerful, and you need to be very good at scripting, for example, in PowerShell or in Bash in case it is running on Linux systems. You need to combine a lot of commands together, and still, you will not get a great output that is presentable to others. You cannot work with it as easily."

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."

  • "The price of our 12-month contract is approximately $1,500 AUD ($1,100 USD)."
  • "When we purchased four licenses, we were given a very good price. However, it is still on the high side when compared to some other vendors."
