We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use.
Here are some excerpts of what they said:
Pros
"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.

Cons
"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."

More Acronis Cyber Protect Cloud Cons →

"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."

    Overview

    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.

    What is Veeam Agent for Microsoft Windows?

    Veeam Agent for Microsoft Windows is a robust, trusted data protection and recovery solution for both physical and virtual machines. This solution can be used to safeguard all kinds of machines and devices, such as desktops, laptops, and mobile devices. Veeam Agent for Windows can easily be installed on all Windows-based physical servers, workstations, desktops, and virtual machines, and works well in either a standalone or managed mode.

    It is widely understood that all users should back up all stored data on a regularly scheduled basis to protect all important data. In the event of a data disaster, data can easily be restored from the backup using this solution and one would never have to experience a loss of important information. Users can implement Veeam Agent for Microsoft Windows to perform regularly scheduled backups automatically, or manually, as needed. Users can choose to back up individual folders and files, designate particular computer files, or even the entire computer image. 

    Backups can be saved in several different locations, such as:

    • Cloud Repository (Veeam Cloud Connect)
    • Backup Repository (Veeam Backup Server)
    • Network Shared Folder 
    • Local Computer Drive
    • Removable Storage Device (USB, CD, DVD, etc)
    • Microsoft OneDrive

    Veeam Agent for Windows users are able to:

    • Create a Veeam Recovery Media file on an external hard drive, CD/DVD/BD, internal hard drive, or choose to establish an ISO file using Veeam Recovery Media on disk.
    • Create a comprehensive system image backup and securely back up chosen computer volumes or specific personal folders with files. Users have the option to store backups in a network shared folder on an external hard drive, or use the Veeam backup repository, Veeam Cloud Connect Repository, or Microsoft OneDrive.

    Veeam Data restore offers two options:

    • Volume-level restore: Veeam Agent is able to restore the complete content of the entire volume. The solution retrieves the data blocks pertaining to the designated volumes and copies them to the desired location. A volume can then be restored to a new location or its original location.

    • File-Level Restore: Veeam Agent will use Veeam’s proprietary driver to publish backup content safely to a user's computer file system. Users can then access the content user Veeam’s Virtual Disk Driver (VDK), which is included with the solution. Users can then easily browse and copy the desired files and folders to use as desired.

    Veeam Recovery Media

    Veeam Agent for Windows allows users to create a complete recovery image of their computer using Veeam Recovery Media. This image contains all data necessary to run Microsoft Windows Recovery Environment (Windows RE) while supplying a viable option to run users’ computer systems.

    Reviews From Real Users:

    We use Veeam Agent for security as well as to ensure we have a backup should the server or discs fatally die. We are a small company with just one building, we want to be sure that should a server be gone we have a backup in the cloud so that we can survive.” - Director at a tech services company 

    “The compatibility of Veeam Agent for Microsoft Windows with other solutions is good. Its integration with other solutions is also good. I also find the product user-friendly.” - Business Development Manager at a tech services company.
