    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.

    IBM Cloud Object Storage

    File recovering and easy data management from various cloud storage systems and the cost-effective capability on this IBM platform are excellent. Security on the system for the multiple data that are handled through the platform is excellent and the user can easily access any needed data from the cloud and provide useful data reports as well as excellent real-time data analytics.

    Pros

    Amazon Drive

    • 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).

    IBM Cloud Object Storage

    • Cloud storage allows you to save data and files in an off-site location that you access either through the public internet or a dedicated private network connection.
    • Cloud storage delivers a cost-effective, scalable alternative to storing files on on-premise hard drives or storage networks.
    • Cloud storage services provide elasticity, which means you can scale capacity as your data volumes increase or dial down capacity if necessary.
    • Business continuity of Storing data offsite supports business continuity in the event that a natural disaster or terrorist attack cuts access to your premises.

    Cons

    Amazon Drive

    • 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.

    IBM Cloud Object Storage

    • Unexpected errors are known to occur when downloading/uploading files.
    • Not easy to get started. In order to take full advantage of the platform and its features, additional training and reading documentation is needed.
    • The UI of the platform can get a bit confusing and it's easy to get lost.

    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!

    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 have been working in IT sector for more than 15 years. I have worked with various vendors. IBM's sales team, support team have been really helpful. After we start to use their product, their UX design team also contacted us to get feedback from us. They are really interested about our experience.

    I just researching and applying the tools on their platforms to ensure a good learning path, based on my needs. Reading the documentation related with resources, tools. Is too big, but I am trying to know more about it every day. It is a good way to know more about their resources. A new way to attract new customers. At the end of the day, we are all involved in improvement and automation of our tasks and resources for customers and end-users.

    IBM's professional service for migrating data and implementing new cloud environment was perfect. They started to help us before we begin to bring together all data such as how can it could be best to transfer all data without problems. During the migration they watched all the process closely to prevent any failure. Lastly, after the migration, they gave us trainings on implementation.

    Alternatives Considered

    Amazon Drive

    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

    Return on Investment

    Amazon Drive

    • 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.
    Anonymous | TrustRadius Reviewer

    IBM Cloud Object Storage

    • This allows us to recommend a platform to our clients that will quickly help them create new, efficient business processes with very little development.
    • This saves clients hours and days of manual analysis of images, allowing the system to do the work when attaching Object Storage to models.
    • There is a learning curve in utilizing the storage and the modeling, but once up and running, it works well during deployment.
