Amazon Cloud Drive

As a place to personally store photos and documents I cannot fault Amazon Cloud Drive. There are better tools out there for business use, but [there are] benefits from its simplicity to not do anything overly complicated.

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.

Cons

  • The pricing is quite on the expensive side for everyone to be able to use.

  • The more files OwnCloud has, the slower it seems to be. Viewing files inside OwnCloud can be really cumbersome and I have found other tools to be much more user friendly in finding what I'm looking for.
  • Viewing photography assets stored in OwnCloud is extremely slow and not as helpful as something like Google Drive or even DropBox would be.

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 other services have a better computer syncing software, but the unlimited photo and video space for a small annual fee is unsurpassed by the competition.

I have used several products based on public (DropBox, Google Drive, Microsoft Drive, etc) and private cloud (Citrix). Most of them work on public cloud space so they could present problems with compliance. Also, it is usually difficult to protect the information contained in this environments. On the other hand, enterprise features are usually included in enterprise versions. The on-premise solutions as Citrix are very expensive when you have hundreds or thousands of users.

Return on Investment

  • Makes it easy to backup our photos, especially on our phones so they can be cleared out to make more space available.
  • Creates a central location for all of our photos and video files.

  • Easy to setup, manage and maintain on linux hardware
