"Cloudberry backup saves backups safely "

What do you like best?

We like to automate our hosting security in the cloud in just a few seconds. Cloudberry backup is fast, and supports many storage providers, so you can create backups for a large number of platforms. This software compresses the information and sends it to the cloud on a date that can be programmable. This process is very convenient to perform. Your price seems a great opportunity ($ 29.99, with a single investment).

What do you dislike?

We do not like its slow support through SaaS (software as a service). As archiving software, it lacks information access controls, a system for archiving web pages and emails, and electronic discoveries. It does not allow creating backup copies through remote servers, and the compression and encryption of each file can take a long time depending on the size of that file.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

We are more than satisfied with the investment made in cloudberry backup. Its integrations are highly recommended with the clouds of Microsoft Azure, Amazon S3, Glacier and Google Cloud. Cloudberry is a solid proposal that will make data storage safer than with any other software.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Cloudberry backup has made our data storage much safer, and also our registration processes for backups. It is also easier to restore damaged files, and schedule the execution of each copy. With this software we have been able to customize backup copies much more. An example of this is that we can choose to have the previous copies erased by having a few days old.

"Cloudberry backup quickly automates content backups "

What do you like best?

We like it easy to restore files by running the built-in wizard for restores. The process is as simple as following your instructions to the letter. You only need to choose the version of the file you want to restore (cloudberry stores different versions of each file uploaded to the platform) and the destination folder. Cloudberry backup allows you to store information on a variety of platforms, including external hard drives. It is also very easy to configure the copy plans.

What do you dislike?

A problem with cloudberry backup is that sometimes it does not connect to Amazon S3, so you should look for some other alternative to host the backups. Creating backup copies in the background is usually a late process if you do not have a mid-range or high-end computer that can speed up your work. The large number of cloudberry backup payment plans can be somewhat consfusive, as there are too many different prices apparently depending on the platform on which you are going to work.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

Unmatched platform. It is mainly recommended to manage the versions of different documents directly in the cloud, and to schedule the backup copies so that they can be created in a more automated way. Another reason why recommending cloudberry backup is that it supports more than 40 different online services for hosting backup copies.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

With cloudberry backup our multimedia file management improved a lot. The realization of incremental backups has been easier than before, and now full restorations can be done in BMR (detail that we did not have before using this software). In addition, registering backups online went from being a complicated process to something quite comfortable. Our work has been greatly improved with cloudberry backup.

"Cloudberry Backup is a good alternative to manage backups "

What do you like best?

We like the cloudberry backup to have its own niche in the Amazon S3 platform. Its wizard allows you to restore files in a short time, and in an organized way (in case you follow their instructions). It is excellent to be able to choose the version of each file and restore it in just a couple of clicks. It has excellent integrations to the services of azure and walrus, where you can save the recovered information. It has also been a good tool for the versioning of information, in cases where data is lost due to errors.

What do you dislike?

We do not like your file compression system. Despite adding extra protection, its weight decreases a lot, as does its quality. Cloudberry Explorer is slow, and does not allow you to properly manage accounts from the windows desktop screen. Having to configure the backup plans after the installation of cloudberry backup is a slow process.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

We recommend it first for remote monitoring. Cloudberry backup has excellent and economical payment plans, ranging from $ 29 in a single first investment, and $ 10 per year for maintenance. We recommend integrating with the Google cloud storage platform.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

With this platform it is easier to upload the backup copies to the cloud, and even configure an external hard drive with which to run backups in the background. It does not consume many computer resources. With cloudberry backup it has also been easier to monitor each client of the backup copies.

"Cloudberry backup saves a lot of time in creating backups "

What do you like best?

The speed with which cloudberry backup works when it comes to the creation of backups for large files is quite large. We like to be able to create backups of servers as in the case of Microsoft Exchange, and restore images as a virtual machine, either in the Amazon cloud or in the Microsoft Azure cloud. We also like that the backups are widely customizable. The customer service of cloudberry backup has seemed very fast and safe. The speed and ease of response are quite satisfactory. The company is quite satisfied with the investment made with cloudberry backup, since the software has responded well to our needs. We liked the deployment power of cloudberry backup, and its stability on the web also works well on mobile devices. It's excellent. Cloudberry backup has an extensive community of online users, who are very helpful in case the platform presents a flaw.

What do you dislike?

Cloudberry backup has space limitations. Its hosting capacity is quite less than the power it offers to support large files, so we are forced to resort to third-party hosting services. Something we do not like is that we can not create documents manually, nor that we can not organize the backups in a chronological table according to dates at convenience.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

Cloudberry backup could be advisable to all kinds of online sales businesses to carry databases of each of the specific businesses. These could be exported to a large number of formats accepted by the platform. Without a doubt, cloudberry backup is the best option to create backup copies. We highly recommend it.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Since we started using cloudberry backup our management of backups has improved a lot. Since then it has become easier for us to do document deduplication and make differential backups. Another advantage that the platform brings us is to be able to recover lost files.

"Cloudberry backup is the perfect tool to automate emails"

What do you like best?

We really like how automated the cloudberry backup is, because it is practical that when saving a file you can immediately create a backup file, and that each backup can be exported in different ways. We like your Linux GUI a lot, as it is quite attractive. It is excellent for creating backup copies and registering them legally, and for making web access restores. We also like its wide storage availability.

What do you dislike?

We do not like its file compression system because it has repeatedly left these completely unusable (they are damaged). We do not like your document version manager, which greatly limits the deletion of backup copies that have a certain age. Your plan for Windows server is very expensive ($ 119 with annual maintenance of $ 24). We do not like their integrations with Amazon S3 and with OpenStack.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

We love cloudberry backup. This backup creation service is excellent for restores, backup programs, and to keep track of them. We highly recommend your online training system, which has excellent webinars.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

It has benefited us a lot in storage management, with which we are much more organized than before. Our data storage has become more secure, and it is now easier to back up local servers. It has also helped us a lot with the organization of our multimedia archiving, and with data deduplication.

"Cloudberry backup is attractive, and has many security options"

What do you like best?

What we liked most about cloudberry backup is undoubtedly its good capacity to create differential and continuous backups without the platform collapsing. It has been quite helpful for us to be able to store emails and multimedia content. That just shows how versatile this software is. We like its ability to integrate with platforms whose management is based on the cloud, and how well we can program the copies to be synchronized with the cloud at a certain time.

What do you dislike?

We are annoyed that you do not have enough options for the archiving of web pages, nor for the management of access to backup copies. No electronic discovery system does not allow remote servers to be operated. A problem with cloudberry backup is that it does not integrate with collaboration software. It would be quite useful to be able to export videoconferences live. We also did not like your limited data deduplication tool.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

This is a service that we can recommend with total security. Cloudberry backup is full of excellent alternatives so that our backup management is as detailed and professional as possible. We like its integration with external hosting services.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Cloudberry backup has greatly helped to make our backup management more organized and practical. Now our copies are much safer than before, thanks to its improved encryption system in cloud security, and it has also been an excellent tool for the complete restoration of documents (BMR).

"Great file backup service in the cloud."

What do you like best?

Cloudberry is a great tool, to have a backup of all our files in the cloud, is a service that allows you to create all kinds of backups without any problem, in our company as it happens in large companies, the telecommunications market, we have a network of servers in different hosting sites, and apart from that they are in well-known sites and with high levels of security, we needed an extra application that would allow us to have a backup also of this type of services, in case of something strange could happen, with this tool we can easily make backup copies of the images of the systems that on these servers, a complete image is created, with all the necessary information, to execute it later and almost immediately in a matter of minutes.

What do you dislike?

something I would like this tool is that it is compatible with other local and web hosting services, especially with a hosting service, where we have a large number of files, and we can not even connect automatically with CLoudberry, I reserve the name of this application for advertising terms, but it is a hosting service well known to everyone on the web, and I would love to be able to make backup copies of the file libraries and documents that we have in this service, just as there are few things that should be improved, but it is always good, to make periodic updates of your software to get the best performance from it.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

It is a great service to have a backup of files and servers, it is an application, which offers very good features of backup copies, and covers almost all the necessary areas of this type of tasks, it really is a highly recommended application, and they are few negative things that can be said about it, since it works well, for what it is designed.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

It is a tool that allows us to have double security, our files and the information that is on our servers, really being able to have backup copies of the operating systems on our servers, it is something essential, which gives us a little more privacy in case of that something has gone wrong, as responsible for this type of work in our company, I feel much safer, when telling my bosses that everything is fine, and that if something happens, it could be solved in minutes.

"Cloudberry Backup Good for PCs, not for Servers"

What do you like best?

The price is pretty low for the software licenses. This is helpful to us as we are a Managed Service Provider.

What do you dislike?

Too many bugs in the product. If you are trying to backup a lot of Windows servers in a business environment, you cannot really trust this product.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

CBB is good for backing PCs, but if you resell CBB to important clients to backup their production servers, you will have lots of headaches from constant bugs being introduced during updates of the product. We currently have several clients whose backups we are not 100% sure of due to all the bugs.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

We are backing up a ton of servers for an OK price for the product, but will probably have to go with another backup product after our current licenses expire because there are just way too many bugs in this software.

"Comparing backup software"

What do you like best?

The VSS snapshot and the aligned and nice GUI. Its easy to implant azure, never did it before and all was good the first time.There is alot of options including to make a bootable usb to recover a fulll system state.

What do you dislike?

So far nothing, i had some other solutions before but they were missing a few things like VSS. Only thing im now missing is to view current processed file and time calculation. This could be cause its the first big upload do. Maybe with incremental backups it will show it.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

This product does what it promise. VSS snapshots are good, didnt recover it yet so i will need to wait untill the computer crashes to give my opinion on this, but for sure the files are the most important and its working greater then other product i tried.

"CloudBerry Backup the best alternative for the backup of our data"

What do you like best?

CloudBerry Backup is undoubtedly one of the best software for the backup of my data in the cloud that I have been able to use, due to various reasons such as: it allows to support many storage providers in the cloud, among which Amazon is included. S3, Amazon Glacier, Microsoft Azure and Google Cloud Storage, also compresses and encrypts data before they leave my laptop or desktop by transferring it securely to the cloud in real time or through scheduled backups. It is incredibly flexible in terms of configuration and storage options, the interface is quite good, at least compared to the competition because it is intuitive and versatile that make it easy to use and as if it were not enough, it is also possible to detect ransomware which is a really incredible caracteristic.

What do you dislike?

until now I do not find any negative dimension that is relevant to name, since in my opinion it is a quite complete software, very easy to install, configure and use and with a support team that is highly efficient

Recommendations to others considering the product:

I highly recommend CloudBerry Backup to any user who needs to keep all their information secure by backing them up in the cloud at the provider of their choice by means of end-to-end encryption

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

CloudBerry Backup provides me with a solid plan of personal support of absolutely all my data, which is extremely important since being a software developer, I manage a lot of data and information relevant to the company, and knowing that all of them are safe is really fantastic , because if there is any failure in the servers I have a very fast restoration.

"CloudBerry Backup the best alternative for the backup of our data"

What do you like best?

After having tested a long list of applications for the backup of my data, I have come to the conclusion that CloudBerry Backup has been the best of all. since it is the perfect combination of an intuitive interface that makes it easy to use, speed, efficiency, unprecedented flexibility, backup of files, images and hybrids to even the server, with many storage destinations to which you can connect, including popular services such as Amazon S3, Microsoft Azure, Backblaze and OneDrive, among other features. It is important to note that it is not the typical backup solution in the cloud, but a backup control center that works with cloud storage providers, which makes it really fantastic.

What do you dislike?

Until now I do not find any negative characteristics of which I should complain about this great software, since being a professional in the area, I had no inconvenience when installing it, configuring it and making my respective backup copies.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

I recommend downloading the free trial version before acquiring the license of CloudBerry Backup, because although it is true that it is an excellent software without doubts, it is better to verify if it adapts to the needs of the user who implemented it.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

since we started to implement CloudBerry Backup in our work routine we are much more relaxed as we know that if at some point you get to present a failure, we can recover all our information without any inconvenience thanks to this great software.

"Presently the cleanest backup solution"

What do you like best?

I tried several system image backup solutions and CloudBerry seems to be the most flexible and the cleanest backup software with intuitive UI that unlike many of the other ones are not dumbed down to attract novice users. You feel in control of what you are doing with your files and with your backup plan.

What do you dislike?

Here and there I notice English mistakes in the UI such as using "operation system" instead of "Operating System" or "by security reasons" instead of "for security reasons", that I think come from translations to English. English is also my second language, but seeing these in an enterprise software makes me wonder if there was no person in this company who could spot these grammatical mistakes.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

I need the peace of mind that I can restore my systems quickly in the event of HDD crashes, which happens not rarely. The average age of a hard disk is about 5 years and so every hard disk is just waiting to fail and take all the data with it. Knowing that I'm protected against data loss allows me to focus better on my business.

"Cloudberry Backup hits the sweet spot for personal backup"

What do you like best?

Having used many of the paid personal PC backup apps (Acronis, Arq, ShadowCraft, CrashPlan, etc etc), I have found that Cloudberry Backup really does provide the right combination of ease of setup, understandable options, and flexibility of targets. In a short amount of time, I now have a full image based backup AND a more normal granular backup saved to both local and cloud. The Hybrid Backup is a perfect system for a simple backup plan. In my case, cloud goes to Wasabi for cold storage, but still easily accessible.. Yep, I say go for it.

What do you dislike?

Maybe a bit of better setup help, up front, of Image Based vs normal backup & block level vs not, as it applies to cloud services like Wasabi. After I had a backup all set and running, I did found this discussion in their online articles. I'd say ideally, since these options have quite an influence on data sent and stored, one should study the online FAQ and docs first.

"Excellent Cloud Backup Suite for MSP"

What do you like best?

Tons of integrations, full featured backup software (Hyper-V, ESXi, Exchange, SQL, File, Real-time, etc.). Great MSP features and integrates very will with our RMM tool (NinjaRMM) and PSA (RepairShopr). Ability to backup to multiple destination is great. Also offers recover to cloud and bare metal recovery solutions.

What do you dislike?

Branding was a bit tedious to get set up, but otherwise everything was pretty smooth and easy with our partner setup. The interface is a bit dated, but it does offer all available features. It can take a bit of getting used to to navigate through the interface, but once you are everything is there, but things could be slightly more intuitive.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

Definitely a great product for any MSP or service provider. Whether you're set up directly, or through a partner. I would highly reccomend this as a solution.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Needed a reliable, affordable, and easily managed backup solution for our commercial MSP clients. This has allowed us to provide top level service, along with excellent reporting for our back end accounting and billing process. Current solution did not over VM-based backups or cloud recovery options.

"Cloudberry Backup is a great backup tool, both for home use and for businesses."

What do you like best?

The tool is very flexible, it supports a lot of various cloud storage providers as well as traditional options such as local storage, network shares and FTP servers.

What do you dislike?

Backup versioning policies are sufficient but could be more sophisticated. For instance, it would be helpful to have separate frequencies for different time frames, i.e. I'd like to keep each version of file for a latest 30 days, then one daily version for the next 30 days, then one weekly version for the next 90 days etc.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

I use Cloudberry backup both at home(desktop version) and at work(Hyper-V backup version). It performs very well providing us a peace of mind when we are sure that our critical data are backed up to several cloud storage endpoints.

Desktop version I use at home also performs very well providing real-time file backup.

"Cloudberry Backup is Awesome"

What do you like best?

I love the easy to use User Interface and the way it guides you each step of the way with helpful tips on most screens. I use it to back up to Amazon S3 Cloudberry is great! It’s fast, efficient, and it just works! With it we can control everything including our own encryption, storage provider (on Azure or many others), scheduling, etc. for our business instead of going to a cloud not under our control. Cloudberry also supports file backups or full images. Cloudberry is extremely efficient at CPU & Drive usage and scheduling actually works. I like that I know what is going on with Cloudberry!

What do you dislike?

Only one issue: 1 issue, we had it set to Unlimited Threads, which was the amount of connections it made at first was locking up the old router at this location which was limited to 768 connections. Easily adjustable under the setting for the backup!

"Unreliable and slow backup system"

What do you like best?

The best feature is the file versioning, which in theory should allow us to retrieve older versions of files, and files that have been deleted.

What do you dislike?

CloudBerry Backup is so awfully slow. For example, this week I simply wanted to delete backup storage from a removable hard drive, and the task is still running days later. It was only less than 500 GB of data.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

I recommend trying the free trial before using CloudBerry Backup, and checking if the performance works for you.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

We installed CloudBerry Backup in the compliance department to make additional backups of files, and to have a 'time machine' style backup where we could retrieve older versions of files or files that had been deleted. However, we've found that it is so awfully slow, that CloudBerry Backup is virtually unusable.

"Excellent product!"

What do you like best?

- The flexibility of using several different cloud-based backup services is a big plus - you're not tied into the same cloud service as your backup software vendor.

- Ransomware detection - if the software detects a change in encryption status, it holds off on backing up files until an administrator confirms that it's OK to proceed. In the current climate of using backups to combat ransomware threats, this is a really great feature.

- Scheduled or real-time backup - you can schedule block-level backups, or automatically back up whenever changes are made. Again, a great feature to protect against ransomware threats.

What do you dislike?

I have no real complaints with the software. I am an IT professional by trade, and had no issues with installing Cloudberry Windows Desktop Pro backup, getting a cloud storage account set up, and backing up data to the cloud storage account. That being said, I probably would not recommend this for a non-IT professional to use directly - but it would be a great selling feature for a consultant/reseller to add for an additional revenue stream, for example.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

Download an evaluation and give it a try. You won't be disappointed.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

My cloud-based backup service that I was using on my office PC discontinued its service offering. I did some searching for current cloud-based backup recommendations and found Cloudberry. My costs on a monthly basis for cloud storage will be dropping by at least 50% by taking care of that side of things on my own, in concert with purchase of the Cloudberry Windows Desktop Pro software.

"Ditched Acronis True Image Home for Cloudberry Backup. Best decision I ever made. "

What do you like best?

Your product is amazing. I was previously using Acronis True Image Home. I had no visibility into what the Acronis software was doing during backup and restore operations. For Acronis their online backup was not available when it came time to restore, and the data that was there was incomplete. I was locked into using Acronis only for online backup and there was no way to egress data to another cloud target from Acronis.

I slowly moved through all my Acronis backup images and converted them to VHDX files, and then got rid of Acronis altogether. I got an account with Wasabi for cloud storage, as well as got myself Stablebit Clouddrive and Cloudberry Drive software so I can mount additional cloud targets as a drive letter.

With Cloudberry I get a full dashboard which gives me full visibility of activity, and doesn’t reduce me to a dumbed down progress bar only. The software let's me know what file is being worked on. The granular control your software provides is exactly what I needed and is refreshing to see.

Cloudberry backup provides realtime, constant backup to the cloud. Acronis does not provide this.

What do you dislike?

-Drive imaging is not included in the basic license. There is no intermediate license so that imaging-only can be purchased as an addon. I worked around this by backup windows native backups to the cloud instead.

-It could use more cloud targets which are S3 compatible such as Storj and SIA.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

Buy the full license. Get cloudberry drive and Stablebit Cloud Drive and use that to run more cloud targets as a drive letter.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

-Avoiding vendor lock-in

-Avoid data loss caused by vendor lock-in to a single cloud target

-Avoiding restrictions of only being able to back up to only one cloud target

-Avoiding poor support and buggy software provided by Acronis

"A great backup solution for large amounts of data"

What do you like best?

A number of things. Very easy to use. A ton of features. Reliable. Version control. Ability to schedule backups. Ability to set up a drive to backup twice - first to another drive, then to the cloud.

What do you dislike?

Nothing so far. This products meets my expectations and there has been no downside.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

If you need to do frequent backups, have complicated backup needs, need version-checking on your backups, or need to backup to a hard drive and to the cloud - I would highly reccomend CloudBerry Backup.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

I am a video editor and have around a dozen terabytes of data. I need to backup everything twice - once locally, and once on the cloud. Cloudberry has been the best solution I have found for this. To backup this amount of data, you want to avoid re-backing-up files if they have not been changed since the last backup. Cloudberry will check to see if something has been modified, and skip it if it has not.

"Backup solution for my most valuable files - my personal data"

What do you like best?

I am also a refugee from CrashPlan. One can argue Cloudberry is better than Crashplan because a) you can choose your storage provider and b) it does image backups. It does its work while maintaining reasonable ease of use (CrashPlan was “reasonable” as well; though there is no avoiding some basic backup concepts) and, when rolled together with an economical cloud storage provider, is cost effective. Oh – it works: I already had to recover some email files.

What do you dislike?

Cloudberry runs as a Windows service (set and forget) with the option to start up the Windows app to monitor what is going on, make adjustments, and recover files. One thing I miss from Crashplan is a “light weight” Windows tray icon that visually shows the service is in fact running and uploading files – while not a big deal, the icon just adds a level of assurance.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

Keeping your backups safe and secure is paramount. “Trust no one”. Cloudberry offers end-to-end encryption – my files are encrypted on my computer before being uploaded, and are being kept on a business-class cloud service of my choice (Amazon S3 in my case – and very straight forward to set up). I feel safe.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

I can’t say that I am realizing a business benefit per se – but, as our personal digital assets grow and paper files become increasingly dated (thank goodness!) – a rock-solid personal backup plan is essential. Cloudberry coupled with a cloud storage provider of my choice gives me a back-up solution that is flexible, secure, economical, and – once set up – “just works”.

"Tried corporate and personal"

What do you like best?

Ease! I love how easy it is to use multiple providers to store you data. Not to mention image backup is the nuts. The option to also restore in the cloud won me over right away. I tried the 15 days evaluation, however to come clean I was so impressed, I purchased the full version in 7 days. The interface is very user friendly, and if you get stuck the "help" documentation was good. I never heard of Cloudberry before, I was looking for a new solution as my iBackup was getting too expensive for storage. Once I added up the cost of what the storage would cost, I was blown away. I was using backblaze for my personal computer and I have cut that over as well. Next week I am setting up another company with Cloudberry for their small business.

What do you dislike?

I do not like how you have to create your own cloud account then go back to Cloudberry and finish the setup process. I would like the slip-stream approach. The ability to create the cloud account right from the Cloudberry interface.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

Try the 15 day free trial. I did and I could not believe how easy it was.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Small business backup and restore. It works better and is more cost effective. It also gives a small business option like cloud restore if their faciality was down or could not procure a server right away.

The simplicity of it. Set it up and let it go. I was amazed at how simple this was and the peace of mind that came with the knowledge the backups were taken place and our data was safe in the cloud.

What do you dislike?

Some of the more complicated backups like O365 mailboxes or O365 sharepoint its not as readily accessible of easy to get rolling. But we are in contact with cloudberry now getting that resolved and their customer service is A1

Cloudberry is great! It’s fast, efficient, and it just works! With it we can control everything including our own encryption, storage provider (on Azure or many others), scheduling, etc. for our business instead of going to a cloud not under our control. Cloudberry also supports file backups or full images. Cloudberry is extremely efficient at CPU & Drive usage and scheduling actually works. I like that I know what is going on with Cloudberry!

What do you dislike?

Only 1 issue, we had it set to Unlimited Threads, which was the amount of connections it made at first was locking up the old router at this location which was limited to 768 connections. Easily adjustable under the setting for the backup!

Recommendations to others considering the product:

Highly recommended as I've been in IT and Development for most of my life. 34+ years of experience!

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Backing up with AES encryption years of private research and development!

"Backup solution for small non profit organization"

What do you like best?

I'm a refugee from CrashPlan. I like that I can choose my storage provider for backups and can easily backup to more than one online storage providers. While this review is for the non-profit with a Windows desktop client I would not have used CloudBerry if they didn't also have a Linux client (which I use on my personal computers)

What do you dislike?

Not much to dislike. It is feature rich enough for my needs. I would like to see deduplication feature on the desktop client.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

Easy to give a try. Google Drive is one of the easiest storage solutions to test with but is not a good long term solution.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

When I took over my current role, the backup solution was accounting data on a flash drive that became corrupt shortly after I started. No other backups were being done and none offsite. The big issue that CloudBerry immediately solved was offsite backup.
