We performed a comparison between Acronis Cyber Protect Cloud and Veeam Agent for Microsoft Windows based on real PeerSpot user reviews.Find out in this report how the two Cloud Backup solutions compare in terms of features, pricing, service and support, easy of deployment, and ROI.
"The management, backup, and recovery features are all very good."
"I have found many of the backup options valuable such as logging the event backup and the ability to run an analysis of the backup before you start for problems."
"Once you deploy, it's very easy to manage. It took us about an hour to deploy."
"The integration with multiple modules in the console and the backup and recovery features are very good."
"One of the best benefits of using Acronis is that it also provides data security along with the backup of data. It checks everything, and that's the main benefit of using Acronis"
"It is easy to use. I don't need any help to figure out how to do it. It is also very easy to install and upgrade. It is very simple and easy to use for restoring. It supports universal restoration. I can restore a full machine to another hardware with this, which is a very good feature."
"We turn on the solution and it works well for backing up our data, it is easy to use."
"We like the backup functionality."
"The installation of Veeam Agent is straightforward."
"The most valuable features of Veeam Agent for Microsoft Windows are the backups, ease of use, and report manager."
"Veeam is very useful for the Hyper-V environment."
"We found the initial setup to be quite simple."
"I don't have any major problems with the agent connectivity with Microsoft applications or Microsoft Azure."
"Veeam Agent for Microsoft Windows's most useful features is the ease of use and user-friendly."
"It is good and easy to use for backing up physical servers. It is working fine, and it is stable and scalable."
"The product is free to use. We don't have to pay for a license."
"We'd like to see more DLP, data loss prevention."
"I would like to see more integration with SIEM solutions."
"In the solution, you have the customization option for reports but it is limited and should allow more customizations in terms of how long or when you can do the reports."
"It will be good if Acronis can provide more documentation and videos describing how to do different things. Their documentation is good, but it is without examples. They don't have lots of videos. They should put more videos on YouTube to show how to set up certain things, how to restore, and how to back up. They should provide step-by-step documentation and videos for specific scenarios. I would like them to improve the command line feature. The command line is not working smoothly, and there is some problem with it. If the command line is improved, it will take the product to the next level. It would be great if it can back up data from storage so that people are able to back up old data. Such a feature will make it an enterprise solution for a full backup."
"Not many people know about this product, so they may need to concentrate more on marketing."
"The Acronis Cyber Protect Cloud server could improve by having better performance."
"I don't see any room for improvement in the solution itself, but their marketing could be better. Dealers and customers aren't aware of this product or the company, so maybe they should concentrate more on marketing."
"The reporting could be improved. I would like to see some enhancements in that regard."
"There isn't really anything I would like to improve. Maybe the solution could be more secure."
"The price of Veeam Agent for Microsoft Windows could improve."
"A lower price would always be beneficial."
"In the next release, I would like to see it easier to implement."
"A feature I would like to see is universal restore. At the moment, restoration can only be smooth on the same hardware. Let's say you have a server and you back it up with Veeam Agent, in case it fails or crashes. If you later buy a new server because the same one isn't available on the market anymore, there's a high chance that Windows will not boot up if you restore from the Veeam backup because the hardware is now different. Acronis has the universal restore feature, so it will work with generic drivers and you can restore Windows in any dissimilar hardware. As far as I know, Veeam doesn't have this feature yet."
"The compression ratio and application ratio could still be improved in this solution. Reporting could also be improved, for better monitoring."
"I can't think of anything that may be missing."
"The solution lacks instant recovery."
Acronis Cyber Protect Cloud is a unique integration of backup with full-stack next-generation anti-malware protection and comprehensive endpoint management tools. This synergy eliminates complexity, so service providers can protect customers better while keeping costs down.
