Quotes From Members
We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use.
Here are some excerpts of what they said:
"The pricing is fine.""The most valuable feature is the fact that you can archive backups quite easily and minimize the amount of space you're using.""Our customers can backup to local storage and they can back up or replicate to the cloud.""The most valuable features of Acronis Backup are instant restore, antivirus, and ransomware protection. Additionally, the documentation is good.""The administration is pretty flexible in terms of defining a multi-tenant type of setup.""This is a perfect option for an SMB.""It's a good solution that's very easy to use. Acronis has two valuable features. The first one is creating images, and the other is starting virtual machines in the cloud so the client can work immediately.""The main reasons that our customers like Acronis are that it is very strong and easy to use."

"The most valuable feature is the snapshot capability.""The most valuable quality of Veeam Cloud Connect is its reliability.""I've found flexibility to the most valuable feature. I also like that it's scalable and that the stability is okay.""I like the fact that it gives you the possibility to set the data out of the customer on-premises site and to have an off-site copy in your Cloud Data Center.""The most valuable features of Veeam Cloud Connect are its ease of use and the portal is very useful.""Cloud Connect's best features are its simplicity, flexibility, and constantly-expanding options.""One of the most valuable features of Veeam Cloud Connect is it does not require the use of an extremely fast internet connection for it to work. The backup process is automated which is great."

More Veeam Cloud Connect Pros →

"The technical support of Acronis Backup could improve. They have the depth of knowledge but the speed of the response could be quicker.""The biggest problem that we have is when the antivirus is installed, the whole machine runs very slowly and some of the machines hang.""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.""It supports Microsoft SQL and Microsoft Exchange, but it does not support Oracle databases or Postgres.""It would be nice to have a partition that I can boot and reinstall when taking a backup image from the operating system.""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.""The solution could be better if some of the features were more in-depth.""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."

"We encountered some issues with stability at the beginning.""I think Veeam Cloud Connect could be more stable, scalable, and secure. I think better pricing is needed.""The dashboard could be more intuitive.""There are some issues with the cloud providers for Veeam Cloud Connect that do not support all the features.""Some of the features I'd like added to the solution would be coming up in version 12, so the only area for improvement I saw in Veeam Cloud Connect was the need to have more support for object storage.""The bandwidth optimization needs to be improved and have better efficiency so that you send fewer amounts of data from one site to the other."
