    Acronis Advanced Backup

    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.

    MediaFire is a great cloud storage platform for individual users or specific departments to use. There isn't enough enterprise management tools for MediaFire to be used in larger companies that need to control the tools that their end-users are using. Setting up the MediaFire cloud platform is pretty straightforward so you don't necessarily need a dedicated storage team to get it up and running and do day-to-day administration.

    Pros

    Acronis Advanced Backup

    • Single pane of glass for managing customer tenants
    • Quick and reliable backup recovery
    • Both onsite and offsite backup destinations are supported
    Josh Spern | TrustRadius Reviewer

    MediaFire

    • FileDrop feature. This is an amazing functionality that increases collaboration among our team. People can drop files in a specific folder related to a project and we can keep it organized.
    • Mobile Apps for Android and iOS. The apps works pretty well and you can carry your files everywhere.
    • Regular and Instant Uploads - MediaFire checks for the exact same file in the cloud. If it finds it, the upload will be instant. Otherwise, it proceeds with regular upload.
    • Multiple Upload Types - Basic, Flash and HTML5

    Cons

    Acronis Advanced Backup

    • 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.

    MediaFire

    • Download Page - When you generate a link to download some files it redirects users to a specific page where they can download the file. The page is sometimes confusing and with a lot of ads which can be a little bit annoying.
    • Customization Option - you can find a customization section in "Settings", but there are just a few things that you can really customize. Maybe improving this would be nice to allow you personalize your environment (for companies, for instance).
    • Blocked options for the free version - There are a lot of interesting options that are available just for business and pro versions. If you could at least test it before upgrading your version it would help users decide.
    • Lack of PC sync client - Would be great if you could install a PC client that would synchronize your files.
    • Problems when refreshing your files list in the browser. Sometimes it gets slow and you have to refresh the entire page to continue.

    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 seldom make use of Acronis support, but when we have they have been brilliant. All our engineers are Acronis certified, if they not able to resolve an issue, we touch base with our local Acronis supplier, Synapsys, who resolve issues 90% of the time.

    Acronis Advanced Backup

    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.

    MediaFire

    Mediafire needs to improve the end user usability and design. The file encryption at rest and transfer needs to be available which is a default feature in most cloud based storage providers. 3rd party integration needs to improved like outlook etc for ease of file storage and access. The large file allowance ranks above other providers.

    Return on Investment

    Acronis Advanced Backup

    • It's been a great investment especially knowing our data is protected.
    • We no longer worry about upgrade storage hardware or devices.
    Michael O'Riley | TrustRadius Reviewer

    MediaFire

    • Thanks to MediaFire I have been able to recover information stored many years ago on their servers, since they usually do not delete files after a certain time.
    • It has helped me to be able to backup sensitive information from long before the existence of massive clouds, so if you did not make these backups you had to lose all the information, but thanks to half fire that did not happen to me.
