Amazon AWS
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.

It's so easy to have running lists that constantly need updating to basically live in a folder on your desktop. Open and save it like a regular document and then it's synced company-wide! However, syncing issues and almost non-existent customer support means that you're basically on your own to figure things out by trial and error.

Pros
Amazon AWS
  • Amazon Drive automatically detects photos and videos in specific folders (that you choose). It will add them to Drive without any action from me.
  • There is a desktop app where you can access all of your files (in addition to web-based access).

  • Simple to download.
  • Easy to navigate.

Cons
Amazon AWS
  • Less storage than Google Drive, Google offers 15GB of free space - vs. Amazon's 5GB.
  • Also, unlike with Google Drive, you can't back up your work with Amazon Drive ( I also use Google Drive, since I have a Gmail account).
  • A lot more expensive than Google Drive, which is 1.99/month...but they are more in line with Dropbox pricing.

  • Signs out unnecessarily.
  • Slow syncing (sometimes).

Usability
Amazon AWS
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!

Support Rating
Amazon AWS
Overall great software to use for file share, storage, and collaboration. Its security is great and the user management is spot on. The only thing that makes me dock it a point is that the device management as a subset of user management is kind of clunky. It hasn't been an issue yet, but it could compromise security in the future. Overall, would recommend

I've personally never talked to anyone from customer support, but my boss has. It took him almost 2 weeks just to get a response back and it wasn't very helpful. We basically had to figure everything out on our own.

Amazon Drive Cloud has the advantage of being backed by one of the companies that has had the highest growth in recent years: Amazon. That gives us security and has been the main reason for us to trust this product. We believe that the security systems of this company are good enough to be quiet while our files are stored on their servers

I have never used anything besides Blackberry Workspaces (formerly Watchdox) so I am not sure how it stacks up against them.

Return on Investment
Amazon AWS
  • It slowed us down at first since we went from purely agile to document based then agile.
  • It is easy to use so even non-developers can access code snippets which they wouldn't know how to access on github.
  • It has a lot of features we don't have a use for in our business.

  • Instead of sending large documents through email, we use this.
