About CloudAlly

CloudAlly is a cloud data backup and recovery system which automates the backup of data from a range of cloud services, including G Suite, Office 365, OneDrive, Box, Salesforce, and more. The software is designed for small and mid-size businesses, and allows users to specify whether they wish their data to be archived in the US, Europe, or Australia.

CloudAlly allows users to backup emails, tasks, calendars, contacts, folders, files, and other data from SaaS solutions to Amazon S3 storage with a single click. Administrators can manually add and remove users, or allow CloudAlly to automatically detect new users to ensure that backups are created from the moment they begin using Office 365, G Suite, or Box. Users can manage their data backup preferences, with control over the frequency and time of backups. Users can also opt in to receiving daily emails summarizing backup activity, containing both an overview and a more detailed report.

CloudAlly’s non-destructive restore process allows users to recover previously backed-up data without overwriting any information. Users can search for individual items to restore, or carry out a full point-in-time recovery of entire calendars or mailboxes. Archived data can also be exported in a range of industry-standard formats for local access, and users can store an unlimited amount of data for any length of time.

  • The non-destructive restore process allows users to recover archived data for individual items or entire calendars and mailboxes without overwriting existing information.

    I set this up in minutes and barely think about it now. I've had to do a few restores and I regularly test it, and it passes with flying colors. What else could you ask for.

    Pros

    Easy to set up. It's self maintaining. A decent amount of restore options. Good price point for the email backup. It works.

    Cons

    The OneDrive backup could get expensive for small businesses.

    Saving Cloud Data has never been so easy.

    Intuitive, flexible and fully functional. These are the words that aptly described my experience with CloudAlly's excellent backup service. Prior to using CloudAlly, I had tweaked and worked with a couple of online backup services which at the best, required a medium to long term learning curve.

    Signing up to CloudAlly's service as a first time user, the simple, intuitive dashboard that clearly indicated the most important features - backup and restore was a pleasant discovery and a big relief. Navigation was a breeze and I got my backup procedure up and running in less than a minute (yes, less than 60 seconds). I concluded my entire backup exercise in a couple of minutes but I would definitely expect that the more data I need to backup, the longer this procedure would take.

    On a positive note, when you are done with the initial backup, CloudAlly will keep tag of subsequent changes and adds only new files or new versions of files when required.
    The list of accounts I can backup is quite impressive and it includes: Salesforce, Yahoo Mail, Amazon S3, Onedrive, Office 365 Exchange, Box, Google Apps and much more. If you are looking at combining two or more services or accounts, it is easy to select which service or account you want to backup on CloudAlly.

    I also discovered another agreeable feature: Setting up multiple users (admins) to access the account. This is a great feature in case you need work to be done by someone else. It means I can delegate tasks and know who did what and when via the audit trail.
    Interestingly, CloudAlly's restore process did not overwrite my currently existing data. As a matter of fact, all the data processed with CloudAlly are tagged "CloudAlly Restore" so you can easily know where your data came from when you perform a restore operation. Great feature!

    Did I mention that I organized my backup and restore procedure as a first time user without help? Yes I did and I should say that sometimes a user manual can be more difficult (to read or use) than the actual application, so I was pleased to discover that CloudAlly's comprehensive user guide (which is freely available to all subscribers) did not fit into this `difficult to read' category.
    Cloud to cloud back up is a must have for everyone on the Internet and kudos to Team CloudAlly for delivering an efficient, easy to use tool that makes the backup process a stress-free exercise.

    Our overall experience was for a shot time. During that time we had a good experience with Office 365 backup it just didn't have everything we were looking for in a backup system.

    Pros

    What I liked most about Office 365 backup is that you had access to the files that you have backuped at any given time. Office 365 backup was not that hard to access and use. I like that about Office 365 backup, but at the time Office 365 backup is not what we were looking for.

    Cons

    The thing I like the least about Office 365 backup is that it wouldn't backup automatically. We were looking for something that would backup every day on its own at the time and date set up to. Office 365 backup at that time didn' t have that to offer. That was the main reason we didn't keep Office 365 backup.

    Best cloud backup option for the price~

    Reviewed on 2017/06/08

    Pros

    Cloud Ally is extremely easy to use and integrates with a variety of services. Its very easy to set it up and then forget about it, but is there when you need it! We use it to backup Office 365 exchange email accounts, Box accounts, and Sharepoint. Its come in handy to recover lost files and deleted emails.

    Cons

    Sometimes it can be a little difficult finding emails to restore. I also wish that there was a global search option for emails. Currently, you can only search 1 mailbox backup at a time.
