Amazon Cloud Drive

An excellent scenario for Amazon Drive Cloud is one where the main customer will only need to store a little information in the cloud for free. Many times we run out of space and do not want to pay for a larger storage capacity, and that's where Amazon Drive Cloud has strength because it's a free service, which gives you 5GB.
Now, Amazon Drive Cloud is not very well known and that decreases its potential. We do not recommend this software to store large amounts of information, especially videos and audio because sure 5GB will not be enough.

Veeam Backup

Veeam Backup is a great addition to most environments. I would be hesitant in an environment where Veeam doesn't officially support a specific product class or OS level. You want to make sure if there is an issue that the Veeam Support is able to assist you.

Pros

  • App based auto sync and sorting of photos
  • Ease of use
  • Accessibility across multiple devices through the use of apps and browser support

  • Veeam is easy to install and manage. However, I recommend getting support personnel Veeam technical training to ensure they are able to deploy to complex environments and tune the software for optimal performance while not impacting production systems.
  • Veeam is dependable in that it provides consistent and reliable backups which are easy to restore. This applies to backup and restore of both physical systems to similar/dissimilar hardware and virtual systems (VMware).
  • Veeam replication features allow for faster recovery of systems which consume a large amount of disk space. Keep in mind disk and network are most often your bottlenecks so you must design accordingly to obtain your target RTO.

Cons

  • There is no sync option present. If it was present, I could have substituted Amazon Cloud for OneDrive. I would have to reupload the new files every time I make a change.
  • The pricing for the service is too high. It doesn't stand as a long term solution to my needs. For example, I get 5GB storage for free from OneDrive, and if I need more, it would only cost me USD 2 for a month to get 50 GB of storage with OneDrive. In Amazon Cloud drive, I have to pay USD 12 per year and I get only 5 GB of files even though it allows unlimited photos.
  • Google Photos provides free unlimited photos in the cloud whereas Amazon Cloud Drive requires USD 12 a year for unlimited photos. Moreover, Google Photos can sync with the phone whereas Amazon Cloud Drive requires manual effort to upload new photos.

  • I wish there was a lower price point that would allow a smaller client I manage to afford Veeam. It's a great product, but was a little too expensive for this smaller site.

We really like the product and can't really complain about its performance at this point. We've also had it deployed for years and it would be difficult to migrate to another solution, not to mention hard to justify the cost of a new solution when this one is working as well as it is.

Overall we have been very pleased with the solution for our virtual infrastructure. I would not give it 10 because I am not really happy with the troubles we get into while backing up our physical servers directly.

Alternatives Considered

This is about the same as Google Drive except I don't feel it's as organized or looks as nice as Google Drive does. It could do a lot more in terms of making it more visually pleasing and make it look more organize. It doesn't stack up to GitHub in the sense that it's not good for instant code sharing, which is what GitHub is really for (with its collaboration with SourceTree).

All 3 of these backups solutions are very valuable to me. I use Veeam Backup and Replication for my primary onsite backup solution. I use Cloudberry for my File Server backup to AWS because I really like the way it stores the multiple versions of files that are modified. Zerto is my primary solution for our offsite replication. It works very well for us to use all 3 since they all have different jobs and provide the reliability of multiple vendors to multiple backup repositories via multiple paths.

Return on Investment

  • We have no ROI numbers that have been reported, we have expected 100% uptime which so far we are satisfied with, so nothing about ACD has hampered our ability to function.

  • Veeam Backup and Replication give me the security of knowing my backups are complete and reliable. It solves a very important issue for us and is extremely valuable to us for that reason.
