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.

It's a pretty robust software that's easy to set up and customize to each customer.

2017-12-19

I get email alerts if there are more than 3 days with a backup failure, and can see what the error message was within the email so if it was something like a disc not being connected, I don't have to log in to the management software or the server, I can just give the office a call and check in with them.

Pros

You can easily tailor it to exactly your specific needs, and adjust those over time without having to remake the entire backup plan.

Cons

The latest update made the management interface a lot slower to load and to navigate.

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.

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 believe it's a matter of time to do it quickly and automatically-.

Acronis platform is good, we resell it and there is also good marketing/training support.

2017-12-19

Pros

The UI is fairly easy to navigate.

Cons

Support was better before the company was bought out, now we get to a call center and only get someone knowledgeable after our issue is escalated which wastes a lot of time.

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.

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.

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.

Interface can be a little confusing at times with a lot of options on the screen, interface also freezes from time to time when using it.

We've been using Acronis Backup Cloud to backup VMs located in public cloud environments.

2017-12-21

Pros

Agent deployments and updates are very straightforward, and the backup policy has just the right amount of configurable options without being overwhelming or confusing.

Cons

The API methods available are primarily focused on tenant/customer entity management vs. management of the actual backup policies and agents.

Buggy software

2018-12-30

This software is usable, but requires the user to have a deep knowledge base as well as the correct hardware to actually connect drives to do cloning.

Pros

The fact that this software has a free cloning component is nice and it is designed to work with Crucial SSD and HDD drives.

Cons

This information was not readily available and took some time to figure out.

Reliable Cloud Backup

2019-08-28

Overall i like the cloud base backup.

Pros

If you want to setup a cloud based backup the initial backup is easy to setup the wizard guides you through the setup and makes it that much easier.

Cons

The full workstation restore is not as well documented, as least the last time that I tried to restore a full image of a workstation.

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.
