Amazon Cloud 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.

Veeam Backup & Replication

Many times we have used the tool to restore systems, both partial and full restores to solve issues that users have put us into. As not as the backup ran successfully, which it does 99.9% of the time, we have been able to make a successful restore of the system. It has not let us down.

Pros

Amazon Cloud Drive

  • Organized platform, can use personally & for work.
  • Cloud, so you can access it anywhere- you just need to have an Amazon account.
  • Affordable upgrade of $11.99/month once you reach the 5GB limit.

Veeam Backup & Replication

  • Veeam provides quick back ups of virtual machines that can run during active operations.
  • Veeam also provides an easy way to recover or replicate VMs, files and folders.
  • The Veeam support team is amazing and very responsive, even during the trial period they provide.
  • Connecting to a cloud repository and launching virtual machines in the cloud is simplified greatly with Veeam (still not exactly easy).

Cons

Amazon Cloud Drive

  • They recently did some kind of update that changed it from Amazon Cloud Drive to Amazon Photos, which made things a bit confusing. Still unsure sometimes where to go or what app to open.
  • I wouldn't mind more robust functionality in terms of pausing uploads or seeing which individual files are uploaded and potentially duplicates of files that have already been uploaded.

Veeam Backup & Replication

  • In my most recent support case, the passing of it from one team member to another has not been great. I've had to re-explain the issue, re-run tests I've done before and re-send logs I've sent before. This is even after the Tier Two team got involved and was supposedly putting together a script that would solve the issue.

We almost certainly will continue using Veeam Backup & Replication software as our main solution for this kind of jobs. The only way we could consider stop using it, is if the price of the support would increase at insane levels, or another software is capable of offer the same features for less, which as of today, doesn't seem possible.

I use it daily and it is easy to understand if there were any issues and it gives error information for helping troubleshoot if there was an issue.

The Veeam Backup & Replication solution is up and running every time you need it as it was planned. In more than 3 years that we have been using the product every night, it might have failed or presented an error once or twice, so the availability percentage is almost at 100%.

To identify a bottleneck in the data path, Veeam Backup & Replication
detects the component with the maximum workload, the component
that works for the most time of the job. For example, you use a
low-speed storage device as the backup repository. Even if VM data is
retrieved from the SAN storage on the source side and transported over a
high-speed link, VM data flow will still be impaired at the backup
repository.

Alternatives Considered

Amazon Cloud Drive

It was a brand that I knew of, and pricing was attractive. Many of our other vendors use Amazon, so that gives us a greater comfort level.

Veeam Backup & Replication

We had used BackupAssist for several years prior to our switch. It had significant difficulties handling our newest converged-storage server (a Dell VRTX). Veeam Backup & Replication has made backing up that machine and its VMs a breeze. I also looked at CrashPlan Pro, Datto, Dell EMC's device (don't recall the name), and several others. None of them had the value and testing abilities of Veeam. My colleagues on Spiceworks were very helpful, as were other review sites.

Scalability can be addressed in many ways, but there is a consequence:
Higher performance and smaller backup windows may put too much stress on
production storage, and therefore, on its performance and Availability
to production workloads. To reduce stress on production storage, version
9.5 introduces a new way of reading VM disks that is optimized for
enterprise storage.

Return on Investment

Amazon Cloud Drive

  • Internal document management has become much smoother
  • More secure than internal storage solutions

Veeam Backup & Replication

  • We've utilized recovery from some hardware failures a few times and it's worked great
  • Works even when a Domain controller has failed
  • Great sureback solution allows lab-based testing of updates on a replica server without affecting production environment... this has saved me a ton on not needing a second lab setup
