"Acronis Backup is easy to use, intuitive, and has high performance."
"The Acronis panel is user friendly and tracking backups across a number of different devices is great. Acronis provides prompts and reminders to users if certain files are not backed up."
"Universal Restore is valuable to us."
"In my opinion, it's the best product for end-users and PCs."
"The most valuable features of Acronis Backup are cloning and many other capabilities. For example, you are able to clone the whole operating system and drive. Additionally, the solution is a complete package."
"There is advanced management where we can do passing, software inventory, and hardware inventory."
"The interface is easy to use. They keep on adding new features. Acronis recently added multi-platform support."
"The solution is stable and reliable."
"The features that I have found most valuable are its back up and recovery. It is a simplified backup because you can do both databases - VM and HyperV. It's a faster backup than the conventional methods because it takes up the bare metal."
"A simple and stable solution for small businesses that use virtualization."
"The backup and replication features are most valuable."
"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."
"The setup was straightforward Veeam Backup Replication. NetBackup is a larger solution and takes more time to implement but Veeam Backup Replication takes approximately 40 days."
"No problems with stability."
"The most valuable feature of Veeam Backup & Replication is that we can back up in-house and multiple cloud providers' storage."
"The solution is a user-friendly interface."
"It would be nice to have a partition that I can boot and reinstall when taking a backup image from the operating system."
"Acronis Backup isn't scalable at all."
"The solution needs to have better stability. I would like to improve the tool’s support through calls."
"The reporting can be improved."
"On the cloud side, security could always be better."
"We have sometimes issues with the child copies and other similar functions, but it's normal with any backup solution. We need to fix those issues first in order for us to be able to do the backup properly."
"A little bit more integration would be good. It should support broader platforms."
"There are times when the backups are slow. A faster backup would be better."
"In the next release, I would like replication directly to the cloud to be included."
"The solution needs more detailed reporting."
"The implementation was straightforward. However, we used an integrator, the process could be easier for us to do it ourselves."
"The user interface needs to be improved. It could be simpler to use."
"The VMotion feature is not reliable enough to ensure a successful migration operation."
"The initial setup can get complex."
"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."
"There is room for improvement in the application backups, particularly for Oracle and SaaS systems. Veeam Backup & Replication offers a plugin specifically designed for Oracle and SAP HANA databases. In version twelve, they introduced enhancements that allow deploying the plugin from the backup server. However, manual configuration is still required on each server to schedule the backup and specify the backup repository. Additionally, transitioning from a Windows server to a Linux server requires converting the existing model. Previously, Veeam heavily relied on Windows and Microsoft SQL databases for their solution. Fortunately, in version twelve, they introduced an enhancement by offering the option to use a Postgres SQL database, which is an open-source alternative."
Veeam’s® premier product, Veeam Backup & Replication™, delivers availability for cloud, virtual, Kubernetes and physical workloads. Through a simple-by-design management console, users are offered what is presented as a fast, flexible, reliable Backup, archival, recovery and replication.
