Amazon Cloud Drive

Amazon Cloud is well suited for companies seeking an easy way to set up a secure cloud storage for your photos, files, videos, music, and more. It was also made to be accessible while on the go via mobile phones, tablets, and desktop computers. This makes it perfectly viable for business and business meetings where you have to be traveling. It may not be appropriate for businesses on tighter budgets that are limited. There are alternatives that ooffersimilar functionality for free although limited in functionality.

Apple iCloud

Apple iCloud is well-suited for people with many passwords who need an easy way to store them. Apple iCloud could improve its security, or at least how it informs its customers of security. If my Apple iCloud is hacked, then my passwords are available for anyone.

Cons

  • Honestly it's not that well advertised so not many people know about it.
  • Also, since it's Amazon people might be wary about it costing too much money when there are free resources such as google drive.

  • The look and feel is not particularly good looking
  • I feel like I am saving a lot in the root directory because of the layout

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.

Usability

The system is very easy to use and it's use of apps for almost all devices and hardware makes it even easier to manage and store photos and documents. I highly recommend this as an easy to use solution for novices!

It does what it does behind the scenes. Whenever you do use the interface online, its functions are very simple to use

Alternatives Considered

We selected Amazon due to the large reliable brand name behind ACD and the ability of it to be nested within other services. While Microsoft and Google were strong options, we decided that ACD had a better cost and availability uptime compared to other services. Dropbox has been used in the past but not a strong positive experience.

Dropbox is a fine product. The thing that makes iCloud shine is its deep integration with Apple and Apple's legendary support. Finally, we are confident that Apple will be fully committed to privacy and our data remains safe. But, none of this is to denigrate Dropbox in any way.OneDrive isn't nearly as reliable. It seems to come and go. Also, Microsoft has had a rough past in losing customer's data (see Danger Pink, etc). And they aren't very trustworthy with privacy.

Return on Investment

  • We have no ROI numbers that have been reported, we have expected 100% uptime which so far we are satisfied with, so nothing about ACD has hampered our ability to function.

  • Backup and restore are a key with iCloud and its syncing.
  • Find my Phone is a great life saver knowing that you're always on the go and so is your mobile device.
  • Sync and having on cloud features like Calendars, and Reminders is such a great advantage even if you are not close to your mobile you can still access them from any internet provided device.
