Backing up your data with Acronis

2019-08-30

However, given the amount of options it offers, using it for the first time can prove to be a little harder than it should and if you are in need for a simple, one-time quick backup of your data, perhaps you should consider using a less complete, more to the point tool.

Pros

It brings a really extensive suite of backup options that covers essentially everything that people should need when performing a backup of their data and/or operational system.

Cons

The interface could have some improvement, since it does take a little time to find your way around the tool and discover how to use it to do exactly what you need.

Acronis has a lot of recovery options and features.

2017-12-13

With Acronis it's super easy and it's in my top 5 products.

Pros

Converting VM is my favorite. Currently, Acronis supports Citrix XenServer, Microsoft Hyper-V, Red Hat Virtualization, and VMWare ESXi. I have worked with other vendors and the experience was, almost successful, but also complicated. Backup and restore it takes just a few clicks and work flawlessly.

Cons

I had some problems doing remote management. I believe it's a matter of time to do it quickly and automatically-.

Review

2020-07-19

A great cloud back up + local back up, no data leakage. accessibility anytime is another advantage.

Pros

integration with the existing system is easy, easy to use.

Cons

Earlier, ransomeware protection was not there but the latest version has it also. So moving the latest version will solve remaining problems as well.

acronis review

2018-12-26

Pros

The high amount of data being sent and received by my organization makes it a hard task keeping a tab on and maintaining such data and in our quest to find a lasting solution to this, one which which make data available to us when we need it was when i and my team came across acronis, it is a really useful tool that helps with shuffling through a huge database in a short period of time.

Cons

Despite this, when their customer care is being contacted, the issue gets solved in no time at all, so, its a plus.

Fairly priced backup solution

2020-04-22

Happy with the product, has solved some issues with critical workstations that other backup solutions have failed on. A key tool to have available.

Pros

Powers through failing drive backups and can pull data when others can't.

Cons

Proprietary backup format means that you need access to a licensed copy to restore from backup, which can be a problem if your licensing has lapsed as it's subscription based.

Ideal for recovery and backup of business data

2019-05-20

Acronis has been really useful since at a business level it is always under risk, since it can fail some server or be attacked in a cybernetic way that is why thanks to the implementation of this software we have backup copies of the business data more important as well as an immediate recovery of them.

Pros

One of the things I like most about this information backup software is that it allows users to back up any location, that is, it does not matter if their data is in the cloud or if it is on another platform. the same way you can protect them, its interface is highly customizable so the user can choose the type of backup that you want to implement, it also offers different types of data encryption which is really advantageous, because if they are stored out of its platform there is no risk of loss or theft and the best or my favorite aspect is that it does not matter since part of the world wants to carry out the backup of information since it is a platform that only requires internet access and a user account to protect your data.

Cons

Acronis is not a completely perfect platform because its learning curve is quite high so it is recommended only for companies with a large amount of data to support.

The Best Backup Utility!

2019-09-12

Migrating from Windows XP to 7 was a huge task at hundreds of doctor offices in the state and Acronis made backing data up very quick and easy.

Pros

The software makes it easy to configure a backup and execute.

Cons

The cloud storage is a separate thing from the software so a hard drive or thumb drive would need to be used.

Fast restoration of the most important business data and information

2019-08-27

Since the use of this software has been implemented, our information is kept secure and backed up so that in the event of any failure of one of our servers we no longer have to worry because we only have to go from anywhere to the cloud and thus restore that information to may our business continue to stand.

Pros

I love Acronis Backup, since it is a software that allows you to quickly restore commercial and personal information, it is also easy to use and beyond restoring and supporting data, it also protects them against ransomware attacks what really It gives us peace of mind because we can not only back up our data but also protect it, which is why I consider it a really complete and quite flexible software, since it offers its users a free 30-day trial, and is also compatible with Linux systems and Windows

Cons

More than upset I consider it a suggestion, it would be ideal if your interface could be improved to make it much more modern.

Business use review

2019-07-10

As Kingston distributors, every SSD that we sell comes with an Acronis Activation Key which helps us a lot especially when a client is requesting a storage upgrade without losing any of his data.

Pros

The cloning feature is one of the best, it covers everything from A to Z

Cons

The free version of it is almost useless it disables most of the useful features

Top notch backup solution.

2018-04-30

Pros

It's great ransomware prevention and great software and hardware support is what makes this one of my favorite backup solutions from the ones I've tried so far.

Cons

Not many cons, but here's a couple I could think of if I nitpick: I wished the remote management was automatic.

For me the most important program ever

2018-02-20

Pros

Almost every year under the Extras menu you will also find new functions such as system integration or tools from third-party manufacturers.

Cons

Some years ago there was the possibility to buy a Plus version. In this one got additional futures. This was later abolished and the futures were so available. For some reason, parts of it did not exist one or two years later. That was not enjoyable then. In the meantime, the best futures are back and everything is fine!

Top for Image Backup

2019-04-03

In our datacenter we backup our servers' images in case of losing servers' operating system or data.

Pros

Acronis can take a server's image and put it any hardware other than its original.

Cons

It a bit expensive than other rivals in the market.

Absolutely amazing

2019-03-26

From single machines with a incremental backup, to a full server farm with disaster recovery. It's that good.

Pros

And has great reporting abilities.

Cons

Nothing to dislike other than the hard limit of 100MB for 'dowloads' rather than recoveries but I hear they're looking into this further on into the year.

Great O365 back-up solution

2021-04-10

Over good and easy to use. they force two factor and have encryption so that's a good thing.

Pros

There are no data caps and it's very include of all items in office 365.

Cons

There was some delays in getting this going at first, however it works well once deployed. They should really have an integrated one drive/teams/outlook back-up setting instead of multiples.
