Iperius Backup Free has some limitations that should be evaluated when using the software at the enterprise level. First, the freeware version cannot be installed as a service and cannot make file synchronization (deletion from the destinations of the files that no longer exist in the source folders). Finally, it hasn't all the advanced backup types available in the commercial editions: Tape backup (DAT, LTO, etc..), backup to Cloud (OneDrive, Dropbox, Google Drive), remote backup FTP, backup of databases and Drive Image backup (disaster recovery).
For the Free edition no technical support is provided.

Do you need advanced features like Drive Image, Cloud backup like Google Drive or Amazon S3, backup of databases and backup of VMware ESXi or Hyper-V virtual machines ?
