Amazon S3

If you're looking to host a wide array of assets, including large images, then S3 is your best bet. It is challenging to get used to initially as the web interface isn't the most intuitive to a beginner but if you're hosting for multiple products, it is worth it. Also makes integration with other AWS products easy.

Google Drive

I think Google Drive is used to the maximum in companies that have several locations nationwide and with a large number of employees. The possibility of communicating and working in the cloud regardless of distances is an important advance from the technological point of view. Honestly, I do not see space where you can not enjoy the service offered by this software. It is ideal for large and small work teams.

Cons

  • I would like an in console file viewer instead of having to download the file to see its content
  • Speed of download has increased a lot in the past year, though still a room for improvement
  • Apart from storage, a few transactions are charged as well

  • Google Drive needs more tools and features to be added for more customization.
  • User Interface can be made more appealing to the users.
  • It takes time to work in a slow internet connection.
  • Sometimes, uploading and downloading speeds lag behind

It's the cheapest, most effective platform we've found to store files in the cloud.

While I might feel like the phone is too small to use to create content, they have done a great job in creating a UI / UX that doesn't prohibit you from creating that content on your phone. On a full blown desktop they have done a great job in creating a suite of office tools that can compete with Microsofts' Office suite. While saying that I do think it's fair to point out that Excel will still knock the socks off of a Google Sheet, due to the fact that it's running in a browser.

I give it this rating because I have never had to use Google Drive customer support - which means that I really never run into issues with Google Drive

After implementing this product in our organization we are now 100% satisfied.

Alternatives Considered

As most of our work loads and the under laying platforms are build on EMR, Spark and AWS Lambda, we did not find HDFS a suitable solution to have all of our data in. HDFS was very costly as we had to maintain data nodes only for the sole purpose of maintaining the extra storage for replication even when we did not need the extra compute power.

Dropbox is only file storage and sharing. Google Drive is much easier to make changes to documents and then see the changes live. You can have more than one collaborator on the document at a given time- things you can't do with Dropbox. The web based platform allows fewer restrictions on device users

Return on Investment

  • We reduced the amount of money we were spending to store massive amounts of data in the cloud.
  • We were able to digitize all of our paper documents and store them in the cloud which helped us gain some office space back.
