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.

Google Drive

Google Drive is great for teams on the move, who might now be able to sit down with one another in the same room and look over a document together. It saves versions so that even if you make a mistake, there is always a past version saved for you. Just keep in mind that the larger your team, the more people will be editing the same document, which can get messy if you’re not careful.

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.

  • Is easy to use and effective

Cons

  • 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.

  • Sometimes certain Word documents look strange when viewed in Google Drive.
  • The spreadsheet functions are pretty basic -- nowhere near the capability of Excel. It's a very different product and shouldn't be treated the same.
  • More options for types of files to edit would be great -- what if we could have basic photo editing capabilities in the future!

It's the cheapest, most effective platform we've found to store files in the cloud.

While I might feel like the phone is too small to use to create content, they have done a great job in creating a UI / UX that doesn't prohibit you from creating that content on your phone. On a full blown desktop they have done a great job in creating a suite of office tools that can compete with Microsofts' Office suite. While saying that I do think it's fair to point out that Excel will still knock the socks off of a Google Sheet, due to the fact that it's running in a browser.

How I have Google Drive installed to my system back up occurs instantly and in the background, if I update a document Google Drive immediately ask if I want to save the updated document and overwrite what I previously stored. This occurs without any prompt from me and that a 10 for me, however, there are times when it does lag a bit however this may be a fault of my Internet service provider and not the Google Drive service.

I give it this rating because I have never had to use Google Drive customer support - which means that I really never run into issues with Google Drive

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.

I also use OneDrive from Microsoft as I also have a Windows phone and a Surface device and this integrated easily with my mobile document to my PC. However they can't in any way compare with Google Drive, first Google Drive have various apps which are also free and integrates easily with it e.g. Google Docs. Unlike OneDrive where I would have to purchase their word procession solution as an example.

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 saved a lot of time since we avoided the back and forth of emails with attachments
  • We could avoid as well a lot of confusion since we could always be sure we were working on the most updated version
  • It also saved some unnecessary meetings since we used the slice tool
