    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.

    MEGA - The Privacy Company

    MEGA is great for storing and syncing files across devices. It has a great web interface, as well as a sync tool for desktop and a mobile app that works very well on iPhone. (I have not used the Android version of the app.) I like the overall usability, as well as some of the features like the QR code and contact list functionality. I like the file versioning and file management features as well. What works less well for me is collaboration with other users, and file sharing among users. I have not been able to find a way to view all files shared with me from other users in the same view as my own files. In fact, when files are shared with me, the only way I have been able to locate them is through Notifications, which is sub-par. I would much prefer to see all shared folders alongside my files, without having to make a copy of the shared folder, thus losing the ability to sync with another user's changes, as well as using up my storage 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.

    • Sometimes the download rate drops by a lot, so the downloads take much longer.

      Clean, contemporary UI that is heavily polished and works great. You can tell they did a lot of user testing with this, and have a top notch UI design team that really cares about the customer. A highly user-friendly service across platforms and form factors, I found their web, desktop and mobile apps to all be impeccably designed and consistent.

      Microsoft

      One of the differentials of the solution is the high level of guarantee and support of the Azure Backup solution. Microsoft is a reference in a technology company with a highly trained support team and helps us with any questions or technical problems with the tool. Service is fast and efficient with trained engineers.

      While I have never contacted customer support, there is a large user community that has posted solutions on third party websites to a number of common questions like how to share files, and how to access files that have been shared with you. When I received a 40 GB shared file, I was not able to find how to access it until I searched on Google to find a solution, which was easy to find. The large user community helps with support tremendously.

      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!
