Backup Solution Review Roundup: Acronis vs. EMC vs. Veeam

This week’s review roundup is a selection from recent reviews of Backup solutions written by IT Central Station community members.

backupOur community members have shared a range of informative reviews, giving readers real user experiences of these IT solutions. Making sure you use the right Backup solution can be critical to the smooth operation of your business. Read what our real users have to say about the solutions they are using:

Acronis – “It allows us to backup our remote sites to a local NAS device, and allows for easy retrieval of data…back in the early days it was almost impossible to get a week’s worth of backup data without having to start all over again. And by that I mean uninstall, reinstall the whole product. It suffers from these issues less now but that is because we have learned which way to deal with the software and how best to make it work in our environment. It does not do “what it says on the tin” at all. You have to work it out yourself.” Read the full review here.

EMC Data Domain – “Efficient De-duplication, highly efficient replication, Data Domain BOOST for enabling a level of ‘Source-Side’ De-duplication.For many clients it has provided a Backup & Archive tier of storage separate from primary storage systems, replicated so as to eliminating the need for tape and has enabled organisations to achieve backups within backup windows and provide an appropriate place to tier and archive inactive data too whilst ensuring it is protected, secure and recoverable. Tighter integration with certain storage arrays or software for even more seamless data tiering perhaps, however the system is quite hard to fault as it ‘just works’.” Read the full review here.

Veeam – “Veeam has saved us many hours retrieving deleted files as well as testing backups. Our old backup solution was getting to the point where we could not go more than a couple of days without backups failing. With Veeam we have not had any time where backups did not run. We also have been able to run since January 2014 with no “failed” backups. The performance is slow when making changes. I am unable to determine if the cause is slow disk that we use for our storage, of if Veeam is slow. When I delete a VM in Veeam it takes about 20 minutes to delete the backups with 83 restore points.” Read the full review here.
