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.

For us here in New Orleans hurricanes are of great concern. In the case of [a hurricane] relocating your family from one location to another can be extremely hectic. With inSync we are able to move the data from on system to another with little to no interruption to our workforce.Depending on your business case, it may be appropriate to keep your data close.

Pros

  • Fast synced data across all of your devices – Desktops, Tablets and Phones.
  • Unlimited Cloud Storage space for all of your important media, files and documents from a reputable company.
  • Extremely helpful and friendly technical support staff who goes above and beyond when you need their help – even if the issue was a user's fault.
  • Seamless integration for your digital files. Plays very well with other popular services.

  • Druva is, for the most part, invisible to the end user. The majority of our end users have no idea what it is or what it's doing, until they have an issue and we can quickly restore their data. We're starting to educate our users, showing them that they can add other folders to the backup and can restore their own files if necessary. Very user friendly.
  • Druva makes the machine migration process simple. Full restore of the user's desktop, files and settings with the click of a button based on their last backup.
  • Implementing Druva was simple using SCCM and AD integration. The install is silent, no log in for the end user and the backups just happen.

Cons

  • 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.

  • Relying on cloud services for retention can always be a risk, putting you in the hands of network connectivity which can result in some slow recoveries and backups at times.
  • If there is a network interruption, the ability to perform a backup and queue the file for later transfer when a connection is available would be handy.

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!

We can get immediate support and response. Online chat is also available where technicians are responding immediately. They will carefully listen and understand our issues and then provide the recommendations and actions. Once the issue solved they will follow up to make sure the customer didn't have the issue again and the issue is resolved.

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.

Druva intstalls and integrates a little cleaner than ArcServe Continuity Cloud. The interface on Druva inSync is a little cleaner overall, but ArcServe does allow a more detailed interface for IT personnel.Both have similar scalability options and provide similar compliance and security features.ArcServe might be a little faster when it comes to moving data to and from the cloud but the simplicity of operation in Druva makes it a better choice for our targeted number of users.
