Likelihood to Recommend

Amazon Cloud Drive

An excellent scenario for Amazon Drive Cloud is one where the main customer will only need to store a little information in the cloud for free. Many times we run out of space and do not want to pay for a larger storage capacity, and that's where Amazon Drive Cloud has strength because it's a free service, which gives you 5GB.
Now, Amazon Drive Cloud is not very well known and that decreases its potential. We do not recommend this software to store large amounts of information, especially videos and audio because sure 5GB will not be enough.

Dropbox

Dropbox is best suited for a situation where there are individuals moving in and out of the office but still need to be able to access certain files and information despite being outside of the office. This also helps keep multiple copies of the same document from appearing, since everyone can access the original at all times.

Pros

  • Amazon Drive Cloud is free and that is positive. It gives us 5GB of storage when we register
  • The application for smartphones is very useful because you can do what you do when you connect from the web browser

  • Dropbox works smoothly across Windows, Mac, and Linux platforms, including mobile devices, to the point that you barely notice you’re using it. Its clean design allows for easy access to and organization of shared files.
  • Dropbox gives users 2 GB of free space, with the possibility of earning up to 16 GB for referrals, while larger companies may find the more spacious, paid options more useful. Dropbox’s premium service, Dropbox for Business, has the added benefit of extra administrative tools, tech support via telephone, and unlimited version history.
  • The service simultaneously stores your data locally and in the cloud, making it a reliable small-scale data backup service. You can also create invitation-only folders for a hassle-free way of sharing documents with a variety of colleagues or clients.
  • It can keep bandwidth usage low by only sharing the revised or added pieces of files. In this way, Dropbox allows for quick file upload, access to file location, and a readily available list of files which have been recently added or changed.

Cons

  • No organizational abilities due to loss of meta data

  • Dropbox is not as well streamlined as Google Drives when it comes to collaboration and change-tracking. Currently, there are no tools to deal with conflicting versions of files saved to Dropbox, and its inability to sync from more than one location also complicates file organization.
  • As a freemium service, those in need of larger storage space may find that Dropbox is one of the pricier options, and is not as versatile as its other competitors, like Google Drive and SugarSync
  • Except for the premium Dropbox for Business service, the program is lacking in tech support options, as it only offers assistance through email.
  • Dropbox recently improved its internal monitoring and now offers two-factor authentication, but security may still be an issue for those sharing sensitive files and information.

Overall, the team is very happy with Dropbox. We are able to upload and edit files wherever we may be, which is great if we are at conferences or on business trips. I definitely see us renewing in the future

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!

Easy to use on multiple platforms. I can upload all types of files and share them whenever, with whoever. If I need to maintain the integrity of the file, I can compress it.

I needed to stay current in improving my daily operations. Dropbox
was suggested to me by a former colleague two-years ago and I've been using it just fine ever since.

Alternatives Considered

Even though Dropbox is great and has syncing capacities, we use Amazon Cloud Drive just because we are on AWS big time.

First of all the dropbox was the one of the earliest cloud storage services among the its' alternatives. It is offering a decent amount of free storage for everyone. That is, it is gaining popularity from the prospective customers. We selected it because it allows us super easy functionality compared to others.

Return on Investment

  • Amazon likes to provide you with one year free unlimited cloud drive in some occasions. There is not much impact on my business but provides me with fast and easy accessibility to the files from anywhere I want.

  • Positive in our ability to share large files quickly
  • The stability of knowing the files are safe to be on dropbox as a back up storage in some cases
