Axway AMPLIFY Syncplicity

It's a great application to backup your data automatically to the cloud and then access later. The automatic restore of certain folders is handy and one less thing to worry about when you're setting up a new PC again. I haven't really encountered any issues with Syncplicity to have any thoughts where it could be improved or where it wouldn't work.

MediaFire

MediaFire is suitable for individual users that want to store and maybe share files. It has a good initial space in the free version that can be enough for most users. The same applies for small teams that want to store documents (text, presentations) and share it between members (FileDrop features can help increase collaboration and productivity). If you have a big team or want to store big files you have to upgrade to the business or pro version (the price is interesting).

Pros

Axway AMPLIFY Syncplicity

  • By default, it is setup to backup my Desktop Shortcuts, My Documents, and my Internet Explorer Favorites folders. When I sign into a new PC, it automatically syncs these items, making it easy for my data to travel with me.
  • I'm able to easily share my items/folders with coworkers, granting them read or read/write access as required.
  • I like that items that are shared with me allow me to choose to sync them to my PC or not. This allows me to sync smaller items like documents and spreadsheets, but keep things like webex recordings stored in the cloud and not using up gigabtyes of space on my PC. :)
  • I like that, during times when I want to free up resources, I can pause the syncing of files.

MediaFire

  • Speed and ease to upload and download files.
  • Available for iPhone, Android, OSX, Windows, and Web.
  • Has no limit of downloads.
  • Give you a considerably large size of space within your servers.

Cons

Axway AMPLIFY Syncplicity

  • I would appreciate it if it backed up more than just Desktop, Favorites and Documents by default. I'm not sure if this was something chosen by my employer, but it would be nice if the whole profile folder was backed up by default, so my pictures, music, and videos folders were included.

MediaFire

  • The 10GB Overall File Storage Limit. I really don't like this and I wish it were a 10GB limit per file. But I understand Mediafire wants to have some sort of limit with the Free accounts.

Alternatives Considered

Axway AMPLIFY Syncplicity

I use CrashPlan for my personal PC at home. I think both products have their pluses and minuses. Both products allow you to backup your selected data to the cloud. CrashPlan doesn't easily allow for file sharing (CrashPlan isn't really a collaboration tool as much as it is a backup tool). Both products have easy restore options. However Syncplicity automatically restoring certain data when syncing with a new PC is very handy and a feature that CrashPlan doesn't offer

MediaFire

All of these solutions stack up pretty well but there are some differences between them. MediaFire is very easy to use and manage files and documents. With a 10 GB you can do many things and share many documents with the team or the department which is what made us decide to use it officially in our team.

Return on Investment

Axway AMPLIFY Syncplicity

  • The ease of use saves me a lot of time.
  • Being able to easily share files with my coworkers also saves me time.
  • This allowed my company to reduce the size of our file server and in doing so, reduced our storage budget.

MediaFire

  • It has allowed me to easily share files with clients and friends
  • No computer client does make things a little slower/more complicated to upload to the cloud
  • Allows me to easily work on a project with someone else and recover a previous file in case of mistakes
