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 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.

Cons

Acronis Backup Cloud

  • 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.

OneDrive

  • OneDrive client is horrible on macOS
  • Official OneDrive client is non-existent on Linux
  • OneDrive support on older Windows versions like 8.1 and less is still buggy
  • Sharepoint still tries to use the old OneDrive client by default. You need to go in the setting and tell it to use the new client.
  • Even if it is a lot better then before, OneDrive client is still often not able to sync folders with huge items or a huge amount of small items.

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

It has a good performance, the pages load normally, access to the files, management, reports, everything is working well. With regard to integration with other systems, we have not done so yet.

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.

OneDrive

The only things that OneDrive does better then everyone else is the integration into Sharepoint/Office documents and the 1TB storage at this price range.

Our corporate solution is Google Drive mainly because of the robust client, better cooperation inside documents, better support for other OSs, etc.

If you really need to storage OneDrive is probably the cheapest option out there, but you would also not need the more advanced features that most others offer.

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.

OneDrive

  • OneDrive allows our users to sync and share Microsoft Office documents via shared SharePoint sites
  • OneDrive with it's 1TB storage allows our users to publicly share huge files that would otherwise require an paid storage upgrade on Google Drive side
  • With Sharepoint and the Office inside web browser, it allows us to create, edit and save files from a phone, tablet or from a computer that doesn't have Office installed
