Acronis Backup Cloud

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.

OneDrive

OneDrive works well when you have dedicated resources to manage and keep the backing SharePoint site organized, and a team that's most familiar with Microsoft Office products.For a more tech-savvy teams that rely more heavily on real-time collaboration, Google Drive may be a better choice.

Pros

  • Quick Virtualization. Acronis can virtualize most systems and get you back up in 15-30 minutes.
  • Encryption of Backups. You own the encryption key, and Acronis doesn't - so not even Acronis employees can get into your cloud data. Encryption meets all HIPAA requirements for data protection.
  • Easy to resell. You can create accounts for individuals outside of the company to allow them access to their backup console. It's very easy to set up, and clients are happy with how easy it is to use.

  • OneDrive integrates with my MacBook fairly well, allowing me to share documents and move fairly seamlessly between local and web versions of a file.
  • OneDrive keeps things in sync fairly quickly and without consuming a lot of system resources.
  • OneDrive (along with Sharepoint's) permissions capabilities are much more fine-grained than Dropbox.

Cons

  • 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.

  • Occasionally the backup functionality fails for certain files. This is rare (and you can see exactly what is synced and what is not) but I am still unclear as to why certain files resist syncing.
  • The browser-based apps for Word, Excel, and PowerPoint not only lack the full-featured functionality of the native desktop apps, but it's clear they weren't designed for browsers. My biggest point of comparison is Google Docs, Sheets & Slides. While Google's apps may not be as powerful, they were designed for a browser from the ground up, they run more smoothly and my team would prefer to collaborate in Google than in OneDrive.
  • It's just a little clunky and could be more user-friendly. Specifically, sharing settings can be confusing or frustrating and require multiple steps to approve when someone requests access to a doc.
  • It's more of a pain to invite external people to contribute to a doc as they have to sign up for a Microsoft account in order to access the docs.

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.

Due to its tight integration into the Microsoft ecosystem and its bundling into the Office 365 service, continued use of the product is all but guaranteed. Unless there's a shift away from Microsoft, I can see no competing product offering the same ease of use and integrations taking the place of OneDrive

Alternatives Considered

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.

As mentioned earlier, OneDrive is certainly a good solution for large enterprises. But when I work with other organizations or for my own personal, outside-of-work use, I prefer Google Drive, simply because it's a platform that nearly everyone is already using to some degree: more user-friendly, and with a better browser-based experience.

Return on Investment

  • ROI has been huge. The cost is incredibly cheap, and we saved $1500/month by switching.
  • With a heavy impact on profits, we're able to bundle this backup plan into our basic server management plans with no additional cost, which raises the value of our offerings significantly.

  • I can't speak to business metrics, but I can say that it is very helpful to have every single person in my company using the same system.
