Acronis Backup Cloud is suited for backing up Windows Servers. Downtime is greatly decreased by using their virtualization options. You will need a Hyper-V enabled computer to virtualize, though, but this can be one of your general-use workstations. A Windows 10 Pro machine with 16 GB of RAM would do it for you. Or, if you have Macs that need to be backed up, you can do that as well. You can grab either full volume images, or files/folders. I can't really think of a scenario that you would
not want Acronis Backup Cloud, except pre-Server 2012 OS's, since virtualization isn't supported on those older systems. Read full review
Koofr works as a kind of system for data filtering, which interconnects the company's clouds through different pages and services, which helps to be used in processes of information collection of any kind, and that is on different platforms so that accessing it is easy. Saving all kinds of information in the cloud of our preference is something simple to achieve if we use Koofr as the main backup software, since the platform allows us to run the largest possible number of backups depending on the plan. So, it is useful for the management of massive backups in several clouds. It adapts very well to the formats of mobile devices, which allows us to access our information stored in the clouds regardless of the site in which we are working, and lets us work in conjunction with file sharing platforms also from cell phones.
Read full review Pros Single pane of glass for managing customer tenants Quick and reliable backup recovery Both onsite and offsite backup destinations are supported Read full review When using Koofr we generally evaluate the analytics of each cloud we decide to work with to store data, and based on this, we can choose whether to use it or not depending on its level of security and information encryption - since we want to access the data easily, but without having problems with intrusions. The platform allows us to make comparisons between the quality of one service and another so that we can know which clouds are the most convenient to work with, and depending on the results, these are interconnected to our other clouds in a short time. The scope achieved through Koofr is very extensive: we can schedule backups in the cloud well in advance, so it is completely unnecessary to carry out such copies without the need to run the operations manually. In terms of adaptability capabilities to office software, Koofr is perhaps the best structured service to store in the cloud the documentation work that is managed through platforms such as Microsoft Word, which requires higher levels of complexity in terms of document configuration. The plans that Koofr offers can be configured depending directly on the level of space required, so prices vary in relation to the amount of information that needs to be sent to the cloud, leaving aside the fixed monthly payments for a predetermined amount of space. Read full review Cons No option for on premises hardware BDR. This means recovery restorations rely on self-supplied hardware performance. License per machine can get costly if large number of computers or servers. Read full review The connection and saving capacity that we will have from Koofr depends directly on the type of plan we choose to work with, and this can make it quite difficult to upload a certain amount of large or heavy formats to several clouds at once. Koofr's platform is not sufficiently adaptable to streaming services generally, and this makes it difficult to work with cloud copies of the streaming presentations we make on platforms like Twitch or YouTube, which limits our ability to view them in the future. If you work with many devices, the Koofr platform usually presents problems to synchronize them all, and displays the information in the cloud depending on the connection speed of each device involved, which causes that some do not have the same accessibility to the information as others.

The cost savings we realized from moving to this software has us hooked - it does everything we need it to do on a very high level (virtualization, for example) and is very low cost for us.

We went with Acronis Backup Cloud because we're able to backup all platforms, not just PCs. And the price was good when it comes to all those options. It's a hard sell to clients, but when explained properly, the understand the cost of a good solution. It's like having good car insurance.
Read full review Return on Investment It's been a great investment especially knowing our data is protected. We no longer worry about upgrade storage hardware or devices. Read full review There have been no drawbacks when calculating the company's overall ROI. Because we have generally expanded our storage capacity with Koofr, we have been able to work better. The gains with Koofr have been varied, as they depend directly on the amount of work to be stored in the cloud, which seasonally turns out to be small. Read full review ScreenShots
