Quotes From Members
We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use.
Here are some excerpts of what they said:
Pros
"It's always stable. It's very good, useful, and user-friendly.""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 image backup and image restore features have been very beneficial to us.""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 most valuable feature is the fact that you can archive backups quite easily and minimize the amount of space you're using.""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 solution has all the features I need and user friendly."

"I like the fact that you can recover the VMs inside the appliance. For example, they're basically running this appliance on a Linux-based distribution, and they're spinning off KVM virtual machines inside.""When I have had to use tech support, they've been very good.""It's not easy to scale it.""They have great support.""When we talk about a backup point of view, from a backup perspective, it's a good one.""I really like the reporting options you get for various email reports."

Cons
"The product would be better if they offered more integration capabilities.""It supports Microsoft SQL and Microsoft Exchange, but it does not support Oracle databases or Postgres.""The solution could be better if some of the features were more in-depth.""It would be better if they made it easier to obtain images for laptops and desktops. It isn't easy right now to have many different types of desktop computers. This is because Microsoft is changing a lot of things in Windows 10.""There are some limitations to the backup.""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.""It would be nice to have a partition that I can boot and reinstall when taking a backup image from the operating system.""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."

More Acronis Backup Cons →

"I would like to see the real-time replication process improved, and a zero RPO feature added.""It seems like Unitrends moved away from enterprise customer engagement and moved more towards the managed service provider market.""Comparing the features and the working pattern, definitely they have to come down on pricing if they want to compete in the market.""There's a lot that can be made better. For example, it could be more scalable.""Probably the biggest issue I've had is actually paying for the unit, and part of that problem is that they use a third party for the billing.""I would like to see more storage options for the free version."

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."
