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.

It syncs very fast and you can schedule this out or do it on the fly. It's a good way to move data off to when someone leaves.

Cons

  • Honestly it's not that well advertised so not many people know about it.
  • Also, since it's Amazon people might be wary about it costing too much money when there are free resources such as google drive.

  • Can't sync to Sharepoint 2016 at this time. Which is a problem since we are on 2016 already.

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!

Alternatives Considered

We selected Amazon due to the large reliable brand name behind ACD and the ability of it to be nested within other services. While Microsoft and Google were strong options, we decided that ACD had a better cost and availability uptime compared to other services. Dropbox has been used in the past but not a strong positive experience.

I don't know, I have not tried anything else. This product was easy to use and it actually worked even with the trial version.

Return on Investment

  • It's another place to store the documentation, we are using this as safety blanket. Even though it has [not] returned any monetary benefit, it gives us a good night sleep as all our important documents are safe in cloud.

  • It will save time when moving huge amounts of data. Because it syncs so fast.
  • It will free up IT Staff to work on other projects. By allowing us to finish this current project first.
  • It will save our Company money by freeing up on old servers.
