    I recommend this service for creating and growing a wide range of solutions, from the simplest to the most complicated ones. Even in a very competitive market for professional services, the central and distinctive techniques that gather the most reliable solutions and suppliers in one location may be enough to meet demand. In a single location, I can meet all of my technology needs and get access to superior assistance.

    When doing daily jobs, if you’re sharing large files, I think Dropbox works a lot better but if you have a system where you’re working within that system and you want to be able to work with that system and have certain folders that you have access to all the time then SugarSync might be just the ticket.

    Pros

    IBM

    • Cloud storage allows you to save data and files in an off-site location that you access either through the public internet or a dedicated private network connection.
    • Cloud storage delivers a cost-effective, scalable alternative to storing files on on-premise hard drives or storage networks.
    • Cloud storage services provide elasticity, which means you can scale capacity as your data volumes increase or dial down capacity if necessary.
    • Business continuity of Storing data offsite supports business continuity in the event that a natural disaster or terrorist attack cuts access to your premises.

    • Sync files in any folder - rather than forcing you to store them in a certain place (Although this can be confusing too)
    • Works in the background - although this is true for all
    • You can share with others - including those who do not use SugarSync

    Cons

    IBM

    • Unexpected errors are known to occur when downloading/uploading files.
    • Not easy to get started. In order to take full advantage of the platform and its features, additional training and reading documentation is needed.
    • The UI of the platform can get a bit confusing and it's easy to get lost.

    • Can only think of one thing. I have helped others to get going with SugarSync and they if they have problems it is understanding the cloud.... So maybe (if it dosen't exist already) I would like to have a animation of the proces with "flying" folders between desktops, clouds etc. Otherwise SugarSync is just great.

    1. Freemium model is the ideal marketing for an app like this. 2. Now their sync methods with Android are worse

    I have been working in IT sector for more than 15 years. I have worked with various vendors. IBM's sales team, support team have been really helpful. After we start to use their product, their UX design team also contacted us to get feedback from us. They are really interested about our experience.

    Online Training

    IBM

    I just researching and applying the tools on their platforms to ensure a good learning path, based on my needs. Reading the documentation related with resources, tools. Is too big, but I am trying to know more about it every day. It is a good way to know more about their resources. A new way to attract new customers. At the end of the day, we are all involved in improvement and automation of our tasks and resources for customers and end-users.

    IBM

    IBM's professional service for migrating data and implementing new cloud environment was perfect. They started to help us before we begin to bring together all data such as how can it could be best to transfer all data without problems. During the migration they watched all the process closely to prevent any failure. Lastly, after the migration, they gave us trainings on implementation.

    SugarSync, like all solutions, has its place in the data storage stack within a company. The main reason SugarSync is better than the other solutions is that it enables me to leave my hard drive organized and keep my existing file trees. I don't have to constantly move or copy files to a specific folder if I want them backed up.

    Return on Investment

    IBM

    • This allows us to recommend a platform to our clients that will quickly help them create new, efficient business processes with very little development.
    • This saves clients hours and days of manual analysis of images, allowing the system to do the work when attaching Object Storage to models.
    • There is a learning curve in utilizing the storage and the modeling, but once up and running, it works well during deployment.

    • We achieved faster project collaboration with SugarSync.
