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.

Box

Box is great for uploading pretty much any file type and sharing it between people, computers, locations, anything. The file upload process is seamless, especially when you download the local file application. There is no longer a need to attach 10 different files to an email, you can now just tell them what folder they are in on Box, and they can be found easily.

Box

  • Box's integration into your computer's ecosystem is fantastic. It lets you seamlessly share files via Box from all different applications, both Windows and Mac.
  • It is great how little battery power Box uses, even when continuously syncing your files between your computer and the cloud.
  • It is great that Box has an application that you can download to your computer that integrates into your "My Computer" or "Finder" application and keeps all of your files local on your computer as well.

Cons

Amazon Cloud Drive

  • Expand the space for free users.
  • It should include the option to edit files in the cloud.

Box

  • They could add more ways to move the data between companies. The sync system could be a little bit better. I think they are going to continue to improve and keep getting better.
  • I am not able to think of any other ways they could improve right now. They are very good at what they do now.

The program is generally easy-to-use, but there are some issues with the file structure metaphor. It can be confusing for people accustomed to working with tree file structures. For example, if I share a folder with someone which is several levels down in my folder hierarchy, the shared folder displays at the root level for the person with which I shared. This is confusing and is not adequately covered in the training or documentation.”

Cloud up-time is great. The failure of the Sync app should be looked at separately and does have failures..

They have met our expectations and even exceeded them in some ways. We are very happy with our choice to start using Box and will continue to use it going forward. It's helped us become more efficient and compliant in our business! This has helped our call centers as well become more effective and compliant as well.

I am a bit conflicted about the score because we haven't needed much technical support, though the support we have gotten was quite good. Frankly, the product has been easy to use and reliable which is the best support.

The tutorials on their website are great, I think anybody can pick this up if they actually just watch the tutorials. The hard part is getting people to watch them!

It was uneventful. One lesson learned was to ensure that the right standards were in place to separate data for various projects and customers before people created a mess by putting data wherever made most sense to them.

Alternatives Considered

Amazon Cloud Drive

We use Dropbox and Google Drive. Personally, I like Google Drive slightly better because they're cheaper (you can't beat $1.99). They also offer a business option that feels a little more professional. But functionality wise, they compare really similarly and are both excellent products and highly recommended!

Box

Box allows for larger amounts of data to be moved between our call centers and us without the restrictions we ran into before. When we need to transfer call recordings between us and our call centers or carriers, they need to be done quickly and securely. Some of those call recordings are very large and we had troubles before we started using Box

Return on Investment

Amazon Cloud Drive

  • It is a program that helps us complement our lack of space to store information.
  • It helps us save and thanks to this program we do not have to pay for a larger amount of storage.

Box

  • Box has been a very positive addition to our business in helping allow us to work more productively and more securely.
  • It's helped our call centers get us the data we need to stay compliant much quicker and safer than before.
