Likelihood to Recommend

Amazon Cloud Drive

An excellent scenario for Amazon Drive Cloud is one where the main customer will only need to store a little information in the cloud for free. Many times we run out of space and do not want to pay for a larger storage capacity, and that's where Amazon Drive Cloud has strength because it's a free service, which gives you 5GB.
Now, Amazon Drive Cloud is not very well known and that decreases its potential. We do not recommend this software to store large amounts of information, especially videos and audio because sure 5GB will not be enough.

Apple iCloud

If you own devices on a multi-platform of Windows and Mac, iCloud is a great storage option. First, you do get some free storage when you own an Apple device. Second, if you own an Apple mobile device, you can place whatever file folders you desire under the iCloud folder and have mobile access. I have never owned anything but an Apple iPhone so I wouldn't know about access for Android.

Pros

  • Amazon Drive Cloud is free and that is positive. It gives us 5GB of storage when we register
  • The application for smartphones is very useful because you can do what you do when you connect from the web browser

  • Backup of login credentials with KeyChain works particularly well. No other competitor can match the fully integrated nature of iCloud because Apple owns the operating system.
  • Seamless syncing with iCloud Backup works to a decent degree. Competitors like Dropbox are catching up, but iCloud comes out of the box and ready to go on new Apple devices, so it saves time for IT.
  • iCloud contacts helps with organization-wide syncing of contacts.

Cons

  • They recently did some kind of update that changed it from Amazon Cloud Drive to Amazon Photos, which made things a bit confusing. Still unsure sometimes where to go or what app to open.
  • I wouldn't mind more robust functionality in terms of pausing uploads or seeing which individual files are uploaded and potentially duplicates of files that have already been uploaded.

  • Would like the ability to have a folder on the desktop to auto upload to iCloud Drive
  • Would be nice to be able to share links with people like Dropbox for file sharing within iCloud Drive
  • Unclear how to not synch select photos

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.

I gave iCloud a very good rating because even though it has flaws that I do not like, it is very usable and very handy. It is easy to access what you need anywhere you are as long as you have an internet connection. It is fairly fast, and it looks good.

Apple support is quick to respond and know their product well. They will follow up with you to make sure your issue has been resolved and case can be closed.

Alternatives Considered

The well organized version of Amazon Cloud wins over both Google Drive and Dropbox. Better accessibility compared to Google Drive and faster access speed compared to Dropbox. Won over the both of them overall except for the pricing case.

Microsoft OneDrive storage is preferred when using Microsoft applications (Word, Excel) even on Apple devices. All in all I believe Microsoft solutions fare better than Apple one due to their greater flexibility

Return on Investment

  • It's had a positive impact in terms of being quick and easy whenever I want to store/access files.
