Citrix ShareFile

ShareFile is absolutely needed for a company that uses large file documents. Microsoft Office will limit the size of the documents being sent, and when you work in a marketing company where design files are being sent that are frequently going to be hitting that limit, Sharefile is necessary. ShareFile is less suited for those companies that have a cloud server where documents can be accessed anywhere at anytime. Also, if you are a company that is rarely sharing large files with each other or clients, this is not really needed.

Cons

Acronis Backup Cloud

  • The website is pretty slow and will kick you off sometimes. I know they are working on this. For now, this is the biggest problem we have with Acronis.
  • Their support team isn't great. It can take a while to get an issue resolved, although issues do not happen frequently.

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.

The cost is fair and the program does what it has promised to do. Customer service is attentive. I'm not aware of any better-sounding file sharing systems out there that would tempt us to discontinue ShareFile.

We have experienced some hangups that happen when viewing mobility and even sometimes via desktop. It depends on the file size and the type of file but does not happen often and when it does it is typically creative related. We barely pull reports so have no issues there. The integration features with Outlook is extremely easy and makes references files super easy.

Alternatives Considered

Acronis Backup Cloud

Acronis is a great solution and provides a flexible amount of ways to backup and restore data. For software, it competes directly with Carbonite, ShadowProtect, Veeam, and Veritas. Most of these solutions are agent based and require licenses for each. Acronis does a great job for small to medium businesses and matches the features of the other software solutions.

The only comparison that I can think of is Dropbox. I liked the user interface and features better with Citrix Sharefile compared to Dropbox. The price was also more reasonable for business than Dropbox. We've used ShareFile for years and have no plans of switching to another product.

Return on Investment

Acronis Backup Cloud

  • Easy to configure and install as well as setup.
  • Restorations can be very quick if self provided hardware is powerful.
  • Can require switching products if company has large growth as more endpoints require large cost investment.

  • The main ROI has been the ability to completely stop offering paper plans. All plans must now be accessed electronically saving the printing costs we incurred before.
  • A soft ROI would be the ability for users to access on-premise files remotely and allow them the ability to skip the previous need to drive back to the office or trailer.
  • When we used it, the Outlook plugin that automatically uploaded large files was a huge success at the company and is a big need for any company that does not have a product offering it.
