Acronis
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.

I need to store and share a lot of files. These include videos and other documents. Before using pCloud, I constantly had to clean up and delete files from my hard drive to free up space for new files. Sharing files and also using files on my website is now easier with pCloud's public folder.

Cons
Acronis
  • 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.

pCloud
  • It is been known that pCloud is lifetime free, but whenever we use it some annoying ads are there which makes it difficult for us to access our own file. It must be reduced, as it will be easy for us to access our files.
  • pCloud has some great features but sometimes we have seen some lagging issues while using it. Whenever we download any file, it gets stuck and doesn't download properly. It is quite impatient, as we need our file urgently. The application needs to improve.
  • The new files which are uploaded are not automatically synchronized properly. It needs to sync with the Mail ID as we can download our files properly.

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.

pCloud does one thing really well; backup, archive, access, and share files & folders. It does not try to be many other things.
