Amazon S3

I feel S3 is best used by a company looking to primarily use it as a safe and secure location to store high-availability data, leaving the additional services as an option for future expansions. Myself, and several other cloud architects I have spoken with have shared another scenario that fits S3, and other AWS services quite well, which is a startup using the free-tier with the Activate program. If done correctly, several S3 capabilities can be employed to offload tasks from underpowered virtual servers, letting the entire system become faster and more reliable.

Alternatives Considered

Several issues with Dropbox where it was hard to set up in the application I was using and once it was set up it would work fine but then become disconnected for really no reason and the support from Dropbox was not that great. The one time that I had to bring back a backup it was slow and the connection dropped several times making it start over again. On the escrow side, I never could get it to link with our software

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