Amazon Cloud Drive

Amazon is incredible...a trusted company, so of course we trust their cloud service! It's been such a smooth workflow using their cloud service. We often travel to see clients, and sometimes we may not have the latest version of a presentation because people are rushing and things can get confusing. Now we're never worried because we can always fetch them from the cloud.

Perfect for a smaller company having no solid document server. Without any major costs you can go from 3 to 30 to 60 users with the same hardware or VPS and if self-managed, no payment per user per month. Less appropriate when users absolutely require collaborative editing of documents. Pick Office365 or G Suite (Google Documents for work) instead.

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!

Regarding the community edition, there is a reasonably good support on the IRC, forums and in the issue section on Github. Perhaps a much more individual approach would be available if the premium support was chosen and the instance of the server was provided by the Owncloud company that also offers some premium extensions, not available generally. However, we did not need this level of support yet.

Alternatives Considered

The well organized version of Amazon Cloud wins over both Google Drive and Dropbox. Better accessibility compared to Google Drive and faster access speed compared to Dropbox. Won over the both of them overall except for the pricing case.

ownCloud's ease of install, maintenance and use as well as a modern interface were major reasons for the choice.

Return on Investment

  • Amazon likes to provide you with one year free unlimited cloud drive in some occasions. There is not much impact on my business but provides me with fast and easy accessibility to the files from anywhere I want.
