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.

Dropbox Business

Dropbox is well known in the cloud storage industry. It has been around for years and has a relatively good reputation. The interface is easy to use and it makes sharing files relatively painless. The price point for the business version may be too high for small businesses, so they may want to consider a different version or competitive pricing with products like GoogleDrive or OneDrive.

Pros

Amazon Cloud Drive

  • It is very simple to use.

  • It has the support of Amazon.

Dropbox Business

  • Cloud storage of large files. Makes for easy sharing and downloading.
  • Activity tracking allows us to see when files were downloaded and by which users.
  • Able to sync files across devices, so when updates are made they can be pushed to desktop, laptop, etc.

Cons

Amazon Cloud Drive

  • They recently did some kind of update that changed it from Amazon Cloud Drive to Amazon Photos, which made things a bit confusing. Still unsure sometimes where to go or what app to open.
  • I wouldn't mind more robust functionality in terms of pausing uploads or seeing which individual files are uploaded and potentially duplicates of files that have already been uploaded.

  • If you sign up to Business Advanced plan with unlimited storage you still start out with 3TB of storage. You must ask support to increase your current limit before hitting 3TB to take advantage of the extra storage.
  • Editing files with their Office 365 integration requires purchasing a separate license for the 365 software.
  • Minimum business package requires three licenses. Dropbox is already the more expensive option compared to GoogleDrive and OneDrive and this may not work for small businesses.

From the IT department perspective, I give an 8 because there are certain areas where management can get a little tricky. Some areas are not the easiest to understand, and I've found myself chatting with their tech support on a few occasions to find answers to things that should have been evident. From the end user perspective, I give it a 10 - I'll keep pushing this - industry standard - if they don't do it right - no one can. For the end user - it works well. Receiving shared folders and files, sharing folders and files - super simple and easy to teach.

At least once a week the app crashes on my computer and causes files to stop syncing. It is an easy fix to re-open the app, however I have to notice the app stopped working to realize it needs to be reopened.

The implementation was actually very simple. Again, as stated previously, the most intriguing part of the entire exercise was the implementation of the directory structure for each account. Once you design and implement it for one, it becomes quite simple to replicate for each account you implement thereafter. You just really need to take time to ensure you implement the first perfectly and those that follow on will be likewise work efficiently and easily.

Alternatives Considered

Amazon Cloud Drive

I use this product in conjunction with other products to store information. As a storage solution it performs as expected, it's use as a business application could be open to improvement mainly due to the lack of collaboration, lock off of files, etc. However, its photo storage is unparalleled in ease of use and visual display.

Both OneDrive and Box offer similar services and features as Dropbox, but I have found Dropbox to be easier to implement and setup than either. In addition, Dropbox can actually cost less than Box when paying yearly vs. monthly. OneDrive for Business has the added benefit of being overall less expensive, and also having deep integration with Office 365. However, most features are only available on Windows, and there is no Linux version at all. In addition, the OneDrive admin console is unnecessarily dense and complex.iCloud is really a non-starter for business as it is primarily a consumer product that lacks any central management features at all.Google Drive can be a good option if your organization is invested in Google's G Suite - but the initial size of a Google Drive is 30GB, and adding more storage gets expensive quickly. In addition, Google Drive is primarily geared toward those using Google Docs, Sheet, etc. and thus is primarily geared toward those accessing it via a web interface. While a desktop client is available, it is clumsy to use.GoodSync is a great alternative if your organization wants to implement an in-house syncing solution.

The only limit to scaling Dropbox is pricing. After a certain point, using traditional data storage would be more cost effective than per user pricing.
