Apple iCloud

iCloud is at its best when a single user has multiple devices and uses the same apps on all or most of those devices. Keynote, Pages, IA Writer, MindNode, and other "fully integrated with iCloud" apps are great examples of how easy it can be.It's less compelling when multiple users need a shared file repository — we just use Dropbox in that situation, and it's a good compliment.It's also less valuable when the apps being used don't directly integrate with iCloud. The valuable cross-OS integration when switching from Mac to iOS and back is much clunkier in those situations. Kick the tires using the free iCloud features before depending too heavily on it.

Nasuni Cloud Storage

It is great for organizations that do not want to be limited to the size of their storage appliance. Since the hardware is used primarily as a cache, there is no cap of the amount of data. Anything beyond the cache size gets stored in the cloud, and Nasuni has advanced logic that ensures the most active data stays in cache, so performance is not impacted.

Pros

  • Synchronized Calendar
  • Synchronized Contacts
  • Synchronized Photos
No photo available
  • The management console is extremely simple and easy to navigate, making common tasks easy to do.
  • Our storage appliance is configured to snapshot data several times an hour, making the risk of data loss very low.
  • Data restores are very intuitive, and take seconds to initiate regardless of whether it is one file or 300GB of data. We have successfully restored many Gigs of data in minutes.

Cons

  • One of the functionalities that I criticize are "bugs". These "bugs" make some features unusable under earlier versions of iOS and Mac OS X.
  • Privacy is always a rising issue and something that one would always need to keep up with.
  • Moving a set of files from an iCloud Drive if they have not been synchronized yet will result in them being lost.

  • I wish there was greater ability to manage the data on the filer. For instance, culling the data for duplicates and cleaning up old data. We currently use a third party tool, which is very slow to run against many Terabytes of data. If this was included in the product from the ground up, I expect it could be much more efficient.
  • This is not the least expensive product on the market. That being said, for what it does, we find it to be a very worth while investment.

It is a very necessary product if you are using Apple devices. If you are then you should utilize it.

Can't think of any important improvements. It works, it's quick, reliable, affordable, handy, and secure. Just a great product, overall. Not sure how I survived without it!

Performance

Apple iCloud8.3
Based on 12 answers
I am giving iCloud this rating because even though I do not like it, it is still an excellent platform. It is very secure, relatively fast and it does work. For a tech-savvy user, iCloud would be an ideal choice. I do not like the fact that iCloud locks your device to your personal iCloud, and I would prefer if this was optional.

Apple support is quick to respond and know their product well. They will follow up with you to make sure your issue has been resolved and case can be closed.

Alternatives Considered

I don't think it is enterprise ready like Box or Dropbox, and seems to cater more to individual users, so I use it on a personal level just for redundancy

The technical support and escalation path for Nasuni is much more reliable and efficient. No getting transferred to various teams. Often times, the person who answers your call is able to resolve your issue. If they cannot, they get the case assigned to the appropriate engineer right away. Time to close has always been very good.

Return on Investment

  • It's actually just another box that I use so it doesn't have any ROI
No photo available
  • Dramatically reduced time spent managing our storage platform. Quotas and reporting tools take all the guesswork out of data growth. Updates are easy to deploy. Time freed up can be used for more user-facing activities that we consider more valuable to the organization.
  • The overall stability of the platform has been very good. We have been running on the same hardware for the past four years without any performance issues.
