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.

MEGA

MEGA is great for storing and syncing files across devices. It has a great web interface, as well as a sync tool for desktop and a mobile app that works very well on iPhone. (I have not used the Android version of the app.) I like the overall usability, as well as some of the features like the QR code and contact list functionality. I like the file versioning and file management features as well.What works less well for me is collaboration with other users, and file sharing among users. I have not been able to find a way to view all files shared with me from other users in the same view as my own files. In fact, when files are shared with me, the only way I have been able to locate them is through Notifications, which is sub-par. I would much prefer to see all shared folders alongside my files, without having to make a copy of the shared folder, thus losing the ability to sync with another user's changes, as well as using up my storage space.

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.

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.

MEGA

  • Sometimes the download rate drops by a lot, so the downloads take much longer.

Clean, contemporary UI that is heavily polished and works great. You can tell they did a lot of user testing with this, and have a top notch UI design team that really cares about the customer. A highly user-friendly service across platforms and form factors, I found their web, desktop and mobile apps to all be impeccably designed and consistent.

While I have never contacted customer support, there is a large user community that has posted solutions on third party websites to a number of common questions like how to share files, and how to access files that have been shared with you. When I received a 40 GB shared file, I was not able to find how to access it until I searched on Google to find a solution, which was easy to find. The large user community helps with support tremendously.

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

MEGA

Mega is a must go to first when expanding cloud storage capabilities and security. Mega can store any file types beyond that of Google Drive and iCloud. Mega is competitively priced to be a suitable option to replace or augment other cloud storage options depending on your business needs. Mega is a must download addition for cloud storage

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.

  • You can create backups without needing to occupy the cloud you share with other workers.
  • You can share large files quite quickly. Also, those who receive the link can access the file in just a few minutes.
