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 works well when you have dedicated resources to manage and keep the backing SharePoint site organized, and a team that's most familiar with Microsoft Office products.For a more tech-savvy teams that rely more heavily on real-time collaboration, Google Drive may be a better choice.

Pros

Amazon Cloud Drive

  • Worldwide accessibility, including from China's great firewall.
  • Highly flexible with different server options: Aurora, MariaDB, Oracle, and Microsoft SQL Server.
  • Lengthy free trial lets you really dive deeply and explore the solutions offering and all that Amazon has to provide you with.

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

  • 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.

OneDrive

  • The editing in One Drive is limited compared to the computer versions of Word, Excel, and Power Point.
  • One Drive sometimes takes a while to sync files. We have noticed they are not immediately updated.
  • One Drive is not entirely compatible with Goggle Documents, there are some formatting issues when using the same document formats.

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!

I have given it this rating because it accomplishes the basic task that we use it for, storing and protecting our sensitive data. That being said, I hesitate to give it a completely positive rating, because I feel that the software performs at a bare minimum level, skimping out on some of the bells and whistles that would be nice.

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.

Echoing my previous comment from the feedback they are willing to receive. Any time we've had questions we've received a response usually same day unless it is more urgent then we are seeing a turnaround much quicker. I haven't been involved with those escalations, but I have heard how great and easy the team is to work with.

Alternatives Considered

Amazon Cloud Drive

Amazon Drive Cloud has the advantage of being backed by one of the companies that has had the highest growth in recent years: Amazon. That gives us security and has been the main reason for us to trust this product. We believe that the security systems of this company are good enough to be quiet while our files are stored on their servers

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

  • It slowed us down at first since we went from purely agile to document based then agile.
  • It is easy to use so even non-developers can access code snippets which they wouldn't know how to access on github.
  • It has a lot of features we don't have a use for in our business.

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.
