We performed a comparison between Acronis Cyber Protect Cloud and Veeam Backup & Replication 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.
"We like the backup functionality."
"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."
"The management, backup, and recovery features are all very good."
"Once you deploy, it's very easy to manage. It took us about an hour to deploy."
"We turn on the solution and it works well for backing up our data, it is easy to use."
"The integration with multiple modules in the console and the backup and recovery features are 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."
"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 a global major solution for quite a lot of people."
"Strong performance with a high level of compatibility."
"The granular restoration that it provides for a business application is most valuable. For example, for Exchange, we can restore a single mailbox or email. We can also do SQL Server restoration and bare-metal recovery for operating systems."
"This is very user-friendly."
"Replication is most valuable."
"Once you get it set up, everything is smooth, and the recovery is excellent."
"The integration of Veeam Backup Replication is very good."
"The most valuable features I have found to be Instant Recovery, quick restore and rollback, and asynchronous copy. It is a complete solution for our needs."
"I would like to see more integration with SIEM solutions."
"Not many people know about this product, so they may need to concentrate more on marketing."
"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 Acronis Cyber Protect Cloud server could improve by having better performance."
"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."
"The reporting could be improved. I would like to see some enhancements in that regard."
"We'd like to see more DLP, data loss prevention."
"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."
"I think Veeam needs to improve the file installation process, as well as more technical things like snapping feature issues. Sometimes during backup, when it's taking the scan snaps on the ESXi, it started and didn't remove the snapshot from there, which consumed storage on the EXSi. It could be improved with more technical depth. The response time for Veeam's technical support could also be improved."
"Device backup could be improved."
"The pricing could be improved."
"There are certain solutions, such as Rubrik and Cohesity, that are little by little, taking market share. Veeam needs to be more aggressive to keep their dominance in the space."
"My main concern about Veeam is that I hope our backups will still be secure in the event of a security incident such as a ransomware attack. In Veeam version 11 they do state that there is ransomware protection, but until it has been proven to be effective, I don't have any assurance that it will prevent data loss."
"The implementation was straightforward. However, we used an integrator, the process could be easier for us to do it ourselves."
"I only ever found one error. It was when we were doing a file copy job. After using it for ten minutes, it would slow down and cause a bottleneck error."
"In the next release, I would like replication directly to the cloud to be included."
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.
