Microsoft

Azure Backup is suitable for companies of various sizes, with varying amounts of data. The cost of the investment should be thought out carefully so that there are no bad surprises with unnecessary files going to Azure Backup. The interface is friendly and easy to configure and it does not require your company to have a backup expert. It is highly recommended for companies with smaller number of servers and better if the servers are already running in an Azure environment.

Koofr

Koofr works as a kind of system for data filtering, which interconnects the company's clouds through different pages and services, which helps to be used in processes of information collection of any kind, and that is on different platforms so that accessing it is easy. Saving all kinds of information in the cloud of our preference is something simple to achieve if we use Koofr as the main backup software, since the platform allows us to run the largest possible number of backups depending on the plan. So, it is useful for the management of massive backups in several clouds. It adapts very well to the formats of mobile devices, which allows us to access our information stored in the clouds regardless of the site in which we are working, and lets us work in conjunction with file sharing platforms also from cell phones.

Microsoft

  • Microsoft products (especially Azure) integration (Windows/Azure SQL instances).
  • Easy to implement and to administer.
  • Friendly interface, compatible to Azure visual identity.
  • Easy to back up and restore.
  • Relatively good backup performance.

Koofr

  • When using Koofr we generally evaluate the analytics of each cloud we decide to work with to store data, and based on this, we can choose whether to use it or not depending on its level of security and information encryption - since we want to access the data easily, but without having problems with intrusions.
  • The platform allows us to make comparisons between the quality of one service and another so that we can know which clouds are the most convenient to work with, and depending on the results, these are interconnected to our other clouds in a short time.
  • The scope achieved through Koofr is very extensive: we can schedule backups in the cloud well in advance, so it is completely unnecessary to carry out such copies without the need to run the operations manually.
  • In terms of adaptability capabilities to office software, Koofr is perhaps the best structured service to store in the cloud the documentation work that is managed through platforms such as Microsoft Word, which requires higher levels of complexity in terms of document configuration.
  • The plans that Koofr offers can be configured depending directly on the level of space required, so prices vary in relation to the amount of information that needs to be sent to the cloud, leaving aside the fixed monthly payments for a predetermined amount of space.

Cons

Microsoft

  • There are more features than you need, just learn how to do it.
  • Really, it is constantly being developed, so I don't think of anything.

Koofr

  • The connection and saving capacity that we will have from Koofr depends directly on the type of plan we choose to work with, and this can make it quite difficult to upload a certain amount of large or heavy formats to several clouds at once.
  • Koofr's platform is not sufficiently adaptable to streaming services generally, and this makes it difficult to work with cloud copies of the streaming presentations we make on platforms like Twitch or YouTube, which limits our ability to view them in the future.
  • If you work with many devices, the Koofr platform usually presents problems to synchronize them all, and displays the information in the cloud depending on the connection speed of each device involved, which causes that some do not have the same accessibility to the information as others.

    Alternatives Considered

    Microsoft

    Azure Backup is based on the most secure and encrypted cloud storage facility available...Microsoft. They have been doing this a long time and have ironed out all the kinks, leaving only the good and dependable solution in place. Azure Backup is fast also, you do not have major delays and internet throttling happening from Microsoft, unlike nearly all other competitors. Have you ever tried downloading a backup you have in the cloud from any solution other than Microsoft Azure Backup? If you have, you know they throttle the speed drastically and it could take you more than an hour to restore just 100mb of data. Most server backups are over 50 GB, some of mine are over 1.5 TB. With those slow speeds it could take weeks to recover your system just because you are waiting on the download to finish. Those companies then offer to send you an external drive with your data on it...but for a major price tag! You should not have to pay extra to get your data back and should not have to wait more than an hour to get it all downloaded either. Microsoft does not throttle Azure Backup downloads and I can almost guarantee that they have faster speeds than you have, meaning that you will be able to download at your maximum internet speeds and recover your systems quickly!

    Return on Investment

    Microsoft

    • The ability to provide customers with peace of mind that their VM's are protected.
    • Low cost as you only pay for the storage.

    Koofr

    • There have been no drawbacks when calculating the company's overall ROI. Because we have generally expanded our storage capacity with Koofr, we have been able to work better.
    • The gains with Koofr have been varied, as they depend directly on the amount of work to be stored in the cloud, which seasonally turns out to be small.
