I'm preparing a technical comparison between Veritas NetBackup BMR and Acronis Backup for our Leadership team. Specifically, I need an in-detail & point-wise description of the Acronis Backup solution.
My setup: ~150 systems.
Thank you in advance!
NetBackup is an enterprise tool and Acronis is for private/small companies (in my opinion).
If you have a plan for ~150 servers then Acronis is a NO WAY for you (only if you have the time to prepare snapshots for each individual system one by one).
Technically NetBackup is a more reliable and comprehensive product as compare to Acronis.
NetBackup has integration with all major business products like MS SQL Server, MS Exchange Server, IBM, SAP, HANNA, Share point and Active Directory.
You can backup and restore full VM in NetBackup as well as BMR too for P2V.
Acronis has limited features in comparison with Netbackup.
Netbackup is a vast product. If you need any assistance you may drop a few lines and I will help you out.
What types of data sets will you be backing up? Also how much data total are we talking about? Will you be backing up traditional (full/Incremental)?
Ok, I'm seeing that no one knows/mentioned what Acronis Cyber Protect is.
Acronis is not an image tool anymore but it's a complete data security product. It has anti-malware, ransomware protection, immutable storage option, cross hypervisor backup and disaster function, P2V, V2P V2V Universal restore capabilities and very good coverage of enterprise application support.
If you need help feel free to DM me.
Both are good backup tools.
I have a one-to-one comparison. But, if you want to use BMR I suggest you go with Acronis cyber Backup because Acronis is the best solution provider for image backup and recovery for different kinds of environments.
Acronis has good support for different kinds of storage and inline data deduplication. Built-in network management for lower bandwidth from clients to the server. Support any-to-any migration and a user-friendly web console.
Always talk to your solution provider about fulfilling your all requirements. Possibly, conduct PoC before your purchase, check partner support services and the roadmap of the product.
Always choose the solution which will serve your requirements for the next 5 years (or more) as per your hardware lifecycle.
if you need any help on a solution please DM me.
I think it's not possible to compare "enterprise backup tools" (NetBackup) with simple "imaging tools" :)
