Amazon Drive

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.

Macrium Reflect

Macrium Reflect creates synthetic full images for fast recovery in case of disaster. It also works pretty well on creating SQL server database backups. It can send a report of taken backups and failures to get users' attention if backups are being taken. It has a good management interface called Macrium Site Manager that connects to installed agents on different servers and has 1 site management configuration for all site servers.

Pros

Amazon Drive

  • 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).

Macrium Reflect

  • Virtualize images to restore services
  • Mount backup images to restore files
  • Takes incremental backups pretty quick compared to other software
  • Creates synthetic full images well

Cons

Amazon Drive

  • 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.

Macrium Reflect

  • Has ransomware protection that could be better at letting users configure exeptions

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!

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

We have not been opening tickets for support from Macrium at the moment, only for licencing issues, but good attention and fast response by the support team. They respond pretty fast to our emails and fixed our issues giving us a good explanation of our case without any complications. Due to the good functionality of the software we have not opened a ticket for support in years.

Alternatives Considered

Amazon Drive

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

Macrium Reflect

We used IBM and Freesync, but all other software had file differences. Architecture kind of backups take a long time for our 10tb storage. We compared times and it's x5 faster because Macrium is a block-based backup system instead of file comparison, and won't affect performance while taking backups. Also, we could restore by booting reflect recovery iso to any server and restore the operating system on any hardware.

Return on Investment

Amazon Drive

  • 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.

Macrium Reflect

  • Improved our time on backups
  • More secure backups of our databases
