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.

SugarSync works wonders for- people who need to access files from different units- people that work from different offices, home or on trips- people that have customer meetings out of office- Anybody who want a safe cloud based backupSugarSync might not be needed for-people who always works at one place from one computer if another backup function is avialable

Pros

Amazon Cloud Drive

  • Fast synced data across all of your devices – Desktops, Tablets and Phones.
  • Unlimited Cloud Storage space for all of your important media, files and documents from a reputable company.
  • Extremely helpful and friendly technical support staff who goes above and beyond when you need their help – even if the issue was a user's fault.
  • Seamless integration for your digital files. Plays very well with other popular services.

SugarSync

  • Backs up selected folders from your hard drive (i.e. unlike DropBox you can leave your files where they are - they don't need to be in a specific folder to sync).
  • Allows for easy mobile access; awesome iPhone applications means my files are always just a click away.
  • Runs in the background without me ever noticing.

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.

  • A free version, 30 days is sometimes not long enough to see if it is suited for a project or business.

Despite the problems we have had with SugarSync, using it as a one time backup, SugarSync works great

Alternatives Considered

Amazon Cloud Drive

Amazon Cloud drive stacks up poorly against the other products with less number of options and features while having costlier plans. I would not substitute any of the other products with Amazon Cloud drive as it still has a long way to go when it comes to better features and pricing.

No particular reason. Price and functionality.

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.

  • Heck of a lot cheaper than having to purchase and maintain a file server
  • Great for remote employees
