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.

Citrix ShareFile

Industry-tailored workflows: ShareFile has 10 key industries and the workflow will match that industry. For example: for accounting, the app will display options for clients to sign documents, which cuts out on them having to post or fax documents. I think it is not as good for small businesses especially if you have part-time employees as paying for their access as well can add up quickly for overall costs

Pros

  • Organized platform, can use personally & for work.
  • Cloud, so you can access it anywhere- you just need to have an Amazon account.
  • Affordable upgrade of $11.99/month once you reach the 5GB limit.

  • I love that I can annotate directly on a file. For example, I can mark the area where I find some weird imagery or mark some content that I'd like to change. I can make annotations on the side for the designer to review.
  • It's so easy to upload content, add recipients, create a workflow, review annotations, reply to annotations, upload new versions, and so on.
  • The file system is like any other you'd expect so there is no learning curve. You can create folders and sub-folders (both personal and public), star items, share/request files, and more. It's so quick and easy to get started.

Cons

  • 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.

  • There has been some limited downtime.
  • More control over user management.
  • The RightSignature integration seems more limited now than in past. The process has to originate in RightSignature, where we used to be able to start in Sharefile.

The cost is fair and the program does what it has promised to do. Customer service is attentive. I'm not aware of any better-sounding file sharing systems out there that would tempt us to discontinue ShareFile.

If not for some limits in usability on mobile devices, I would have rated this a 10.

We have experienced some hangups that happen when viewing mobility and even sometimes via desktop. It depends on the file size and the type of file but does not happen often and when it does it is typically creative related. We barely pull reports so have no issues there. The integration features with Outlook is extremely easy and makes references files super easy.

Alternatives Considered

When compared to other solutions, Amazon is the dominant household name. With that said it is a bit more expensive than the competition. Namely, Google and their entry into the cloud solutions game is being priced very aggressively and in certain cases much cheaper than Amazon. For example, for 2.1 hours you will be charged for 3 hours with Amazon vs. the 2.1 hours prorated with Google.

Much smoother integration with sync, outlook, and the file structure. Everything works well and without much input after initial setup. Allows for document collaboration with office products and other important integrations.We frequently had problems with OneDrive backing up information automatically, which drove us to look for something better even though we have OneDrive through our Office365 subscription

Return on Investment

  • Positive- allows us to save money on hardware maintenance, as local storage is very expensive (NAS/SAN, etc) Allows us to maintain a good availability of data.

  • Clients know how to use it and are savvy when it comes to retrieving their files
  • Easy avenue for clients and us
