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.

WeTransfer

It is the most appropriate tool to quickly share documents with someone you don't want to give access to your company's own online library, yet you have to share files. It's great that there's no need to create a user, nor for uploading or downloading files. Just have in mind that the documents on the link have an expiration day!

As noted previously, sometimes it can take more than once to upload and share a file if you are using Chrome. It doesn't happen often but of course it always seems to when we are on a really tight deadline. It just takes patient in those cases

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.

I've only reached out to WeTransfer support once, but they were prompt, courteous, and answered my question. I assume that future interactions would be the same, I'm looking forward to being a long term customer.

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!

Dropbox is too complex and unreliable to use. I have had many headaches with files not downloading properly, going missing or not opening. I have to spend a lot of time to figure out what I need to do. And just as you think you have everything under control, you set up a nice work environment with organized folders, you realize your storage space is up anyway! Since I've discovered WeTransfer, I never went back to Dropbox.

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.

WeTransfer

  • I haven't paid for this software personally, so I'm not sure, but $12/month is very reasonable if you are constantly sharing files.
  • WeTransfer is fairly professional, so in my opinion, links sent to clients look more professional than using a link from Google Drive or Dropbox.
