Comparing the features of the four is not the right approach. You need to develop a list of requirements for backup and DR that are specific to your organization and then compare each of the four products to those requirements. All the products you have listed do very well in specific niche markets, all of them also have cons as well, without a clear understanding of what your requirements are a product comparison doesn't mean a great deal.

Hi!
I can send you comparision documents if you would like but as Kevin mentioned, first it is good to know the exact needs and specification you or your company expects from Backup solution.

Kind regards
Szabolcs

I can only vouch for Veeam which we use in a 100% virtualised environment. for us it's perfect, we run backup locally and replication to a remote datacentre. we can recover individual files or whole VM's. we can spin up recovered VM's in a sandbox environment. we've just started to play with restore to Azure as well. licencing in on a per host basis, we use it for both VMware and Hyper-V vm's. I hope this is of some help to you?

I second Kevin's remark. It is almost impossible to compare various backup solutions without knowing your environment. Are you backing up exclusively Windows, Windows and Linux, do you have Novell, minicomputer and the list goes on. Why type of backup hardware are you using, WORM, Tape Drive, Tape Autochanger..... And I have not even touched the functions you want the backup to do.

How does Acronis Backup compare with Veeam Backup & Replication? Which is better and why?
See 1 answer
Nov 17, 2021
Acronis Backup is a versatile backup-as-a-service solution for service providers. It allows you to protect workloads on-premises and in the cloud and provide backup to any storage. The deployment is flexible and good for hybrid environments. We evaluated Acronis Cyber Backup before ultimately choosing Veeam Backup and Replication. What did we like about Acronis? It offers a single pane of glass for managing tenants. The backup recovery is fast and reliable. It also supports onsite and offsite backup destinations. The deduplication and incremental backups are fast and powerful. The user interface is easy to use and intuitive. Support is also responsive and good in several languages, with email and live chat support. The integration with third-party products doesn’t work so well and it can be inconsistent on endpoints. There are also frequent changes in licensing models. Veeam Backup and Replication provides security and availability across multiple environments and platforms. It provides continuous data protection and fast and reliable image-based backups. You can protect cloud, on-premises, virtual and Kubernetes workloads. They deliver unlimited capacity for long-term data and object storage. The replication capabilities are very powerful and you can recover instantly for Microsoft SQL and Oracle at file-level recovery. Neither scheduled nor synthetic full backups require regular attention. You can carry out hourly backups, which run pretty fast. Veeam provides immutable storage, too. The data deduplication saves costs by reducing the amount of backup storage required. It can even back up the VMware server VMs. Conclusions Acronis is suited for companies that want to back up a few devices. It can be expensive for small businesses as the license for machines can be pricey. Overall, Veeam is a more complete solution that covers a wide array of environments, even on-premises hardware.
