Apple iCloud

Best for Apple devices in backing up and syncing data across multiple devices. Absolutely excels at restoring devices or setting up new devices to be exactly how your old device was. Not as great if you want to use Google or Microsoft products or services. In these cases iCloud will do nothing other than a primitive document and photo storage solution if you are willing to manually use 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

  • Basic documentation needs for spreadsheets and text editing
  • A great notes and calender app
  • Back up and syncing of photos and documents
Adam Lauer profile photo
  • 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

  • Locked into the Apple Ecosystem. Does not port very well to Windows, Linux, or Chrome
  • Storage tiers are expensive
  • Sharing is possible, but not completely flushed out for things such as reminders, notes, calendars, documents, and photos

  • 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.

These are the reasons why I really enjoy Apple iCloud:
  • Cross device ease of use
  • The ability to easily monitor the amount of space used
  • Extremely easy to upload documents and pictures
  • It is able to be accessed from a browser, which means that it can be accessed from any device with an internet connection

Alternatives Considered

Microsoft is incomplete and does not offer the all the features that iCloud does.Google offers a multiple alternatives where some are better and some are not, but they do not interact well together and you never know when Google is just going to kill off one of their services.Ultimately I love Apple hardware and its software works best with it. They do enough and have cool features and work together that accepting any shortcoming is palatable.

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 is a fantastic setup and very well worth the investment in time and money.
  • It keeps everything in sync and doesn't let us down.
  • there really is no negative for our Apple centric operation

  • 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.
