    The imaging capability seems to be solid [with Acronis True Image], although I have not had to recover a drive yet so cannot compare. The logs tell me when it is (and isn't) working. The "Cloud Replication" that is supposed to simultaneously replicate the
    local backup image is perfectly awful and the months of tech support
    ended with them telling me I had a "VSS issue" on a brand new workstation
    and that I should just create a separate cloud image. After months of it
    taking 3-4 DAYS to run, IF it worked, and then failing altogether, I discontinued it. It was even logging (running?) under another separate critical files backup, and forced to use the same encryption password. Setting up a new one failed. The cloud backup of my critical
    files is still running at kb/sec speeds. The ransomware protection hasn't caught anything yet to my knowledge, and consumes a lot of resources. Changing the settings takes at least 10 minutes to log into the cloud. Cloud storage is tiny and a push to get you to pay more. Will not be renewing.

    Amazon Cloud Drive is a fantastic backup solution for storing your digital files on the web, but if you want to manage, tweak, organize or otherwise maintain those files after they have reached the cloud, the experience immediately begins to suffer. This is especially noted when major competitor products like Microsoft and Dropbox offer similar services at similar prices, but offer far better interfaces for file management.

    Pros

    Acronis

    • Delta backup makes backups super fast of larger files that do not change in its entirety (e.g. VM images, large PSD files)
    • Easy to use (set it and forget it)
    • Rescue media makes it easy to restore backups to different hardware and migrate to other work stations
    • Lots of backup options on the Windows version of ATI

    • Amazon Drive automatically detects photos and videos in specific folders (that you choose). It will add them to Drive without any action from me.
    • There is a desktop app where you can access all of your files (in addition to web-based access).

    Cons

    Acronis

    • Some features have actually become more complicated over the years. One that comes to mind is creating a backup plan that can execute daily to an external USB media that is changed daily (older versions would back up to the, for example, "F" drive regardless of which drive was attached - newer versions identify each drive uniquely, and a backup task created with a given external drive will fail due to the lack of media presence if the drive is replaced).
    • Error messages could be less cryptic.
    • Support turnaround time and live assistance could be faster.

    Amazon AWS

    • Less storage than Google Drive, Google offers 15GB of free space - vs. Amazon's 5GB.
    • Also, unlike with Google Drive, you can't back up your work with Amazon Drive ( I also use Google Drive, since I have a Gmail account).
    • A lot more expensive than Google Drive, which is 1.99/month...but they are more in line with Dropbox pricing.

      The system is very easy to use and it's use of apps for almost all devices and hardware makes it even easier to manage and store photos and documents. I highly recommend this as an easy to use solution for novices!

      Support Rating

      Acronis

      Beyond a single instance, I haven't had to approach Acronis' support. I needed a new key following the death of my previous workstation, and they rapidly supplied it. I've heard from colleagues that they've quickly answered any questions that've been asked. If I need something, I'll generally frequent FAQ pages first, although Acronis actually has instructional videos to help users get started, which is forward-thinking. Great software that fills a vital niche for Windows systems.

      Overall great software to use for file share, storage, and collaboration. Its security is great and the user management is spot on. The only thing that makes me dock it a point is that the device management as a subset of user management is kind of clunky. It hasn't been an issue yet, but it could compromise security in the future. Overall, would recommend

      Alternatives Considered

      Acronis

      Acronis True Image is the perfect program when it comes to backing up data. It supports all kinds of backup like file and/or folder backup and has a better and easier to use interface than the 2 products. I also like that I have the option to backup data in local drives also instead of the cloud only. And lastly, it supports Partition backup also instead of only files and/or folders.

      Amazon Drive Cloud has the advantage of being backed by one of the companies that has had the highest growth in recent years: Amazon. That gives us security and has been the main reason for us to trust this product. We believe that the security systems of this company are good enough to be quiet while our files are stored on their servers

      Scalability

      Acronis

      The Windows version is generally reliable and only ran into one issue thus far. Restores are easy and there are many features. On MacOS, it's a completely different story. There is significant resource leakage related to the updater app that can bog down part of a CPU core continuously until it is disabled. The mobile backup feature also needs to be disabled via UNIX command line or CPU usage will go up when a mobile device on the same network like an iPad or iPhone's screen is turned on.

      Return on Investment

      Acronis

      • Peace of mind - knowing that if anything happens to our data, we can recover it.
      • File Versioning has saved us a few times - we can grab prior versions of a particular file if there is a problem.
      • Reasonably priced - there are more comprehensive backup solutions out there, but for online backup, this was the right product for the right price.

      Amazon AWS

      • It slowed us down at first since we went from purely agile to document based then agile.
      • It is easy to use so even non-developers can access code snippets which they wouldn't know how to access on github.
      • It has a lot of features we don't have a use for in our business.
