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.

OneDrive

OneDrive is well suited for business users that need access to their data on the fly from outside the organization. It's great for those personal work files that an IT person (like me), a field agent or a sales person may use when out in the field. I also feel it is well suited when used to share anything with the outside world. It is absolutely not suited to be shared between users as you completely lose all individual accountability... If more than one user is accessing the same OneDrive - you can't tell who did what anymore. For this usage - turn to SharePoint!

OneDrive

  • Selective folder sync - you can easily pick and choose which folders sync to a person's computer
  • The actual file is not synced until it is needed - you see the file, but until you need it, it takes up no space on your device!
  • Available on virtually any device that has internet access - phone/tablet apps, browser based access, sync client access

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.

  • Sync client (Windows) can continue to be updated such that it becomes even more stable
  • Mobile apps should be tweaked a bit more - they can be more intuitive

Due to its tight integration into the Microsoft ecosystem and its bundling into the Office 365 service, continued use of the product is all but guaranteed. Unless there's a shift away from Microsoft, I can see no competing product offering the same ease of use and integrations taking the place of OneDrive

It has a good performance, the pages load normally, access to the files, management, reports, everything is working well. With regard to integration with other systems, we have not done so yet.

Alternatives Considered

Amazon Cloud Drive

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.

OneDrive

The only things that OneDrive does better then everyone else is the integration into Sharepoint/Office documents and the 1TB storage at this price range.

Our corporate solution is Google Drive mainly because of the robust client, better cooperation inside documents, better support for other OSs, etc.

If you really need to storage OneDrive is probably the cheapest option out there, but you would also not need the more advanced features that most others offer.

Return on Investment

Amazon Cloud Drive

  • There are other options present that can provide cheaper plans for the same services.
  • The number of features that are present is less when compared to its competitors.
  • When being used in an office environment, there is a need for collaboration. Amazon Cloud drive has limited options for collaborating.

OneDrive

  • Modest increase in productivity inasmuch as I no longer have to VPN to my local office machine to upload an updated version of a document I downloaded from our storage location and worked on.
  • Has allowed some sequestration of personal contents I store on there, wasn't available on our earlier mass storage.
