Amazon Cloud Drive

Amazon Cloud Drive is a fantastic backup solution for storing your digital files on the web, but if you want to manage, tweak, organize or otherwise maintain those files after they have reached the cloud, the experience immediately begins to suffer. This is especially noted when major competitor products like Microsoft and Dropbox offer similar services at similar prices, but offer far better interfaces for file management.

Apple iCloud

iCloud is well suited for folks who are primarily working on the Apple platform. It is also a good choice for folks who are very concerned with privacy & security concerns around other platforms. Notes sync and multi-user sharing are good, especially for a basic/easy to use scenario. But for pro users, it doesn't come close to the Google Docs family.The photo backup is good for personal users, but storage is expensive in Apple's universe.

Pros

Amazon Cloud Drive

  • As far as we know, it's the best value. Our current plan is for something like 4-5 terabytes.
  • Good interface both on the website and on the app.

  • Notes app sync across devices. Easily the only thing that iCloud does really well. It is super helpful.
  • iCloud allows seamless and good backup for desktop files from the Mac to the web.

Cons

Amazon Cloud Drive

  • Monthly pricing could be a bit more competitive compared to Google.
  • Could be a bit more flexible when it comes to granular instance configuration.
  • Amazon rounding up will increase costs for instances when compared to competitors charging you a pro-rated fee.

It's so seamless that I can't imagine another product doing a better job synchronizing all of my devices. I simply do not think about it at all. Everything happens behind the scenes and I'm confident that Apple keeps my data safe and secure. I'm a happy customer as far as this is concerned. I have not had a bad experience with this service.

It's easy, simple and cost-effective as compared to other cloud backup solutions that are being offered today. You get 5 Gb free to start and it's only $1 to upgrade to 50 Gb! Can't beat that when you can download iCloud from any platform to back up all your documents, pictures and music.

Alternatives Considered

Amazon Cloud Drive

I use this product in conjunction with other products to store information. As a storage solution it performs as expected, it's use as a business application could be open to improvement mainly due to the lack of collaboration, lock off of files, etc. However, its photo storage is unparalleled in ease of use and visual display.

Apple iCloud works on mobile devices, tablets, and computers. We are an all-apple school so using iCloud was a no brainer in comparison to using google for password management.

Return on Investment

Amazon Cloud Drive

  • It's another place to store the documentation, we are using this as safety blanket. Even though it has [not] returned any monetary benefit, it gives us a good night sleep as all our important documents are safe in cloud.

  • Minutes saved in the classroom have been priceless
  • Critical password information saves time and increases school security
  • We still need to use google for document sharing
