Amazon Cloud Drive

If you want a discreet and safe place to store information, Amazon Cloud Drive is the solution.If you want to share, exchange or edit as a team, there are better options in the market.

Until they get themselves together, I can't think of a scenario where their service is well suited. But, since that's too short of a response, I'll just have to say that their product isn't well designed. It starts a backup as soon as it is installed without any schedule set. I spent a day talking to my ISP and computer tech trying to figure out why my internet was messed up. Finally, I looked at their software and discovered it was backing up all by itself.

Cons

Amazon Cloud Drive

  • 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.

Alternatives Considered

Amazon Cloud Drive

We use Dropbox and Google Drive. Personally, I like Google Drive slightly better because they're cheaper (you can't beat $1.99). They also offer a business option that feels a little more professional. But functionality wise, they compare really similarly and are both excellent products and highly recommended!

IDrive is less expensive and offers a wider array of services.

Return on Investment

Amazon Cloud Drive

  • Positive - has done exactly what we need it to do: back up massive amounts of files with relatively easy retrieval.

IDrive

  • Using iDrive has taken too much of my time, having a negative impact on revenue.
