    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 a great cloud storage platform for individual users or specific departments to use. There isn't enough enterprise management tools for MediaFire to be used in larger companies that need to control the tools that their end-users are using. Setting up the MediaFire cloud platform is pretty straightforward so you don't necessarily need a dedicated storage team to get it up and running and do day-to-day administration.

    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

    • FileDrop feature. This is an amazing functionality that increases collaboration among our team. People can drop files in a specific folder related to a project and we can keep it organized.
    • Mobile Apps for Android and iOS. The apps works pretty well and you can carry your files everywhere.
    • Regular and Instant Uploads - MediaFire checks for the exact same file in the cloud. If it finds it, the upload will be instant. Otherwise, it proceeds with regular upload.
    • Multiple Upload Types - Basic, Flash and HTML5

    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

    • Download Page - When you generate a link to download some files it redirects users to a specific page where they can download the file. The page is sometimes confusing and with a lot of ads which can be a little bit annoying.
    • Customization Option - you can find a customization section in "Settings", but there are just a few things that you can really customize. Maybe improving this would be nice to allow you personalize your environment (for companies, for instance).
    • Blocked options for the free version - There are a lot of interesting options that are available just for business and pro versions. If you could at least test it before upgrading your version it would help users decide.
    • Lack of PC sync client - Would be great if you could install a PC client that would synchronize your files.
    • Problems when refreshing your files list in the browser. Sometimes it gets slow and you have to refresh the entire page to continue.

    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

    Mediafire needs to improve the end user usability and design. The file encryption at rest and transfer needs to be available which is a default feature in most cloud based storage providers. 3rd party integration needs to improved like outlook etc for ease of file storage and access. The large file allowance ranks above other providers.

    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

    • Thanks to MediaFire I have been able to recover information stored many years ago on their servers, since they usually do not delete files after a certain time.
    • It has helped me to be able to backup sensitive information from long before the existence of massive clouds, so if you did not make these backups you had to lose all the information, but thanks to half fire that did not happen to me.
