Likelihood to Recommend

Amazon Cloud Drive

An excellent scenario for Amazon Drive Cloud is one where the main customer will only need to store a little information in the cloud for free. Many times we run out of space and do not want to pay for a larger storage capacity, and that's where Amazon Drive Cloud has strength because it's a free service, which gives you 5GB.
Now, Amazon Drive Cloud is not very well known and that decreases its potential. We do not recommend this software to store large amounts of information, especially videos and audio because sure 5GB will not be enough.

Pros

  • Amazon Drive Cloud is free and that is positive. It gives us 5GB of storage when we register
  • The application for smartphones is very useful because you can do what you do when you connect from the web browser

  • Real time file locking
  • Backup and recovery
  • Easy access to all your files

Cons

  • Amazon Drive gives you 5 GB of storage, which compared to other companies that give you 15GB, is not flashy. I think they should increase the storage capacity to a minimum of 15Gb so they can compete.
  • Amazon Drive Cloud competitors have additional text editing services, spreadsheets, online web presentation editor, among others, and this program only offers you storage. I think they should think of a strategy to become more attractive and beat the competition.

Alternatives Considered

Actually I think both Box and Dropbox are easier to use and have better features for sharing files, especially if you need password security on those files, but Amazon is better for storing tons of data. Box and Dropbox are much more expensive to store a lot of files.

There are several other devices but Panzura is best of class.

  • People are always working on the latest copy of their files. Since we implemented Panzura no files have [been] overwritten and [no] data has been lost.
