CONTENTdm

CONTENTdm is well-suited for smaller organizations as a simple solution to present a digital collection on the web. If your need is complex and requires digital preservation as part of the workflow, it may not be the best solution.

pCloud

  • pCloud is quite suitable for most users. It does a lot well, such as file storage, being multi-platform, and decent user experience with folder organizing and moving files around.
  • Where it isn't at apt would be in workspaces to manage documents like Google Drive, and even dropbox would provide. The ability to manage google docs, sheets, etc. would be a significant plus.
  • The ability to use a workflow to store file shortcuts (don't like their star system quite as much)

Cons

CONTENTdm

  • As a digital asset management system, one would expect the capability of managing preservation, which CONTENTdm lacks.
  • Lack of batch updating and other advanced metadata management capabilities.
  • The usage statistics does not work, and the company is not planning to fix it, at least based the interaction with tech support staff. Customers were referred to use Google Analytics.

pCloud

  • Offline folders (a normal sync rather than a separate folder would do)
  • Backups (ability to keep them longer and not be upsold for it)

  • I'm quite as impressed with it, although their faqs cover most current and pending issues. They take around 48 hours to respond to inquiries, while platforms like Gsuite have an instant agent and multiple contact options.
  • They do attend to you, and I do understand they're trying to keep a lean team and reduce operational costs. For a frequent user who uses cloud storage for multiple things such as website databases, etc. and has clients, it could be a tad frustrating.

Alternatives Considered

CONTENTdm

We selected CONTENTdm because it had a good reputation, was used by many institutions, provided a good product, and supplied feedback and monthly reports.We are wondering about DPLA and if that will be the next evolution or platform.

pCloud

  • pCloud makes the storage and retrieval process quite easy. With Google Drive, sure you can store lots of items, but the Linux functionality just wasn't there.
  • The same was the case with OneDrive, which I still use. However, it can be buggy and taxing on computer systems.
  • pClould is quite simple to use, flexible, and quite effective at what it does. And it's conveniently priced too.

Return on Investment

CONTENTdm

  • It helped us to get started with our digital collections projects at a relatively low cost.
  • As our needs grew, it became apparent that we needed something more powerful, and that provides better workflows and better statistics and is able to handle the whole life cycle of digitation projects.

pCloud

  • Less stress (since I can switch computers and not be limited by hard drive space yet having access to what I need.
  • Integrating Linux into our workflow (they take the cake there, and that makes life so much easier.
