Default Sump pump backup - DC vs battery inverter?

Story time. A few weeks ago I came home to the utility company cutting up one of my trees that had fallen on a power line. It didn't snap their line, but it did rip the mast off my house. To do that, they had to cut power to the house. Anyway, it got all fixed up, but it really made me think that I need to get off my butt and get some form of backup for my normal sump pump.

So, I am asking for advise. I know you can get 12v pumps out there. But, you can also just buy a battery and an inverter to power the pump too, right? Which way would you go and why?
