Acronis Backup & Recovery 11.5 Virtual Edition for Citrix XenServer Review
Finding reliable and affordable data storage/backup service is of paramount importance to business owners and individuals alike. The goal of this article is to highlight some of the pros and cons of using Acronis Backup & Recovery 11.5 Virtual Edition for Citrix XenServer for virtual machines as a means of securing sensitive information.
Prospective customers can take advantage of a generous two-week trial period.
Customer support is available in several languages.
Government-grade AES-256 encryption is used to protect data from potential cyber-attacks, which is a growing problem among computer users.
In addition to typical data files, various media can also be safely backed up (e.g., CD/DVD, HD-DVD and Blu-ray discs). Prospective customers will find that this feature not only frees up space on their desktop and/or laptop hard drive, it will also save them money because it reduces the need for flash drives, DVDs and other portable storage devices.
The Automated Disaster Recovery Plan restores/recovers entire systems within a matter of minutes, which makes what can be a time-consuming and potentially costly process effortless. Customers will also have the ability to backup and/or recover several virtual machines via the Citrix XenServer host. This is a definite plus, given the fact that approximately 10% of the estimated 1.6 billion computers in the world crash everyday due to everything from faulty components and cyber-attacks to earthquakes.
The Backup Solution Wizard is an interactive, step-by-step process that shows users exactly how their data will be protected by posing a series of questions and providing additional options based on the answers. For example, Acronis provides customers with a visual example of how their data will be protected after they enter the number of systems and/or hosts that are to be backed up. From there, users will have access to other options, such as determining whether or not they want to store backups online for added security. Novice computer users will find this feature to be extremely helpful.
Depending on the customer's initial budget, the cost of a single license can be expensive when compared to other companies. However, upgrading from previous versions reduces the price of a single license by a considerable amount.
Some data backup/storage service providers offer longer trials periods, which gives prospective customers more time to make an informed decision about purchasing their services and possibly reduces the risk of early cancellations.
While there are a number of data storage recovery services available that offer similar benefits, Acronis Backup & Recovery 11.5 Virtual Edition for Citrix XenServer virtual machines appears to have more bells and whistles than the competition. In addition to the aforementioned stealth security features, other options such as cloud storage and deduplication can greatly reduce the amount of data being stored on single systems. Acronis' Universal Restore feature allows users to recover, repair and clone data within minutes. Customers also have the ability to interact with each other via the company's forum. There, they can receive unbiased opinions about additional Acronis products and services.
