Anytime – and I do mean anytime – you have files of any size over, say, 50kb and they are static you should reach for S3 first. In 7 years of using the service, I have never once lost a file. There have been a total of maybe 30 minutes of downtime in 7 years, which was a DNS level issue. The speed is excellent, the availability is incredible, and there simply is no good competitor for the price.

Upsafe Free Office 365 Cloud Backup

Office 365 Cloud Backup is well suited for retrieving and sharing documents and reports that are accessible to as many or few members that need to review, change, or add notations. This is one of the main benefits in using Office 365 Cloud Backup for our office.

Cons

  • Web interface is not the most intuitive at first. Takes some time getting used to
  • Private assets being displayed could end up breaking your site if you're unaware that you need to set them public
  • S3 is overall an expensive option for a smaller company

  • It is cumbersome to have to login to Office 365 to retrieve your files rather than locating them on your personal computer desktop.
  • Some employees use Office 365 and save documents there while others do not join in, making it difficult to be on the same page.
  • Sometimes it is hard to maneuver when working in an older version of Office, tips and how-tos would be beneficial.

Alternatives Considered

[Amazon s3 has a] Simpler interface.

I have personally used Apple's cloud backup. I think Office 365 Cloud Backup is as easy to use as Apple's version and I would not hesitate to recommend Office 365 Cloud Backup.

Return on Investment

  • Positive - no need to plan ahead with ever increasing storage space.
  • Positive - off site data backup that can be used in a DR situation from any location
  • Positive - Granting temporary access to other people is easy.

  • We are a non-profit and Office 365 allows us to offer software that would be impossible in tightly stretched budgets.
