    CTERA Edge X Series

    This is all about the selling you a "Device" and prices vary greatly between resellers. The devices work well, but the pure cloud solutions need a lot of work.
    Lee Taylor | TrustRadius Reviewer

    OneDrive

    • For collaborative work both in education and professional areas.
    • For personal work in multiple devices, and "on the go" work.
    • It's great for work that takes a lot of memory space, because it is saved in the cloud, not the device itself.
    • It's a great tool for anyone working with a lot of creative files that can't be stored in small devices like USBs.

    Pros

    CTERA Edge X Series

    • Standard File Backup
    Lee Taylor | TrustRadius Reviewer

    OneDrive

    • OneDrive is a multiplatform solution so that we can access files from the device of our choice.
    • With OneDrive, workgroups can centrally view data, avoiding file loss and disruption to multiple employees.
    • By organizing work groups, users may create dedicated directories for their department. This ensures that all descriptions of details, including documentation or multimedia files, are transparent, organized, and stored directly in public-access folders.

    Cons

    CTERA Edge X Series

    • SQL Backups just don't work reliably. For us, we lost all of our SQL data backed up through the CTERA Application process. Although the logs indicated a success, that was really not the case. This came close to putting us out of business. Luckily I had taken a genuine SQL backup to a folder. Unfortunately it was a month old. We had to pick-up the pieces from there.
    • Don't use it for file sync and share. There are better products out there i.e. anchorworks.com
    • Support sucks. Good luck with response time and answers that are inconsistent between team members. For example I had to rebuild a VM from scratch. When I re-installed the CTERA client It obviously thought I was adding another device. When I inquired to tech support, one member said "copy the old Data folder" (I still had the old VHD. That did not work). The other directed me to the correct spot to just change the associated folder. The turn-around time was over 24 hours for this simple fix.
    • Documentation, plenty of fodder but no real tech there.
    Lee Taylor | TrustRadius Reviewer

    OneDrive

    • I wish OneDrive would allow you to sync multiple personal/individual accounts to your computer. At this time, you can only sync one account at a time. That means that my personal OneDrive and individual corporate OneDrive can't be synced to my computer at the same time.
    • OneDrive has a file size limitation of 15 GB. I know that that is a very large amount, but I have several files that are larger than 15 GB that I wish I could get to sync. I'm hoping that file size limitation changes in the future.

    Due to its tight integration into the Microsoft ecosystem and its bundling into the Office 365 service, continued use of the product is all but guaranteed. Unless there's a shift away from Microsoft, I can see no competing product offering the same ease of use and integrations taking the place of OneDrive

    Using OneDrive is very intuitive and has been improved over the years. It's just like using native file management on either your Mac or PC. It's drag and drop functionality is easy and it clearly shows when files are uploaded to the cloud or if there are errors

    It has a good performance, the pages load normally, access to the files, management, reports, everything is working well. With regard to integration with other systems, we have not done so yet.

    It's a Microsoft product so there is a wealth of information online both from Microsoft directly and from millions of users but as a corporate user we also have access to direct Microsoft support through a variety of avenues (phone, email, etc.). This makes finding answers to issues more accessible, however, it does also mean that any new feature requests will get buried.

    Alternatives Considered

    CTERA Edge X Series

    Unfortunately CTERA does not stack up well if you want a pure cloud BDR. I have use iDrive and Asigra. iDrive has similar support and SQL backup issues. Asigra can vary widely in support and price, but the software is solid.
    Lee Taylor | TrustRadius Reviewer

    OneDrive

    Box is another file-sharing application that is very similar to OneDrive. Box falls short of OneDrive in its syncing capabilities. OneDrive is very quick with syncing so you never have to be concerned that you are not using the most up-to-date materials. Box was always a bit delayed and did not always accurately sync across systems. OneDrive benefits from being backed by Microsoft, so you expect the connection across applications that it allows. OneDrive also provides consistency for use and intuitive understanding because of that Microsoft consistency. I'd prefer OneDrive over Box.

    Return on Investment

    CTERA Edge X Series

    • NONE, it about put us out of business
    Lee Taylor | TrustRadius Reviewer

    OneDrive

    • We have seen some productivity gains for those team members that are fully utilizing the full MS Office suite, including Microsoft project. Having a more fully-integrated knowledge- and project-management solution is a vast efficiency improvement.
    • We are also able to more effectively collaborate with external partners, by granting access to specific folders within our document repository.
    • We are able to more effectively collaborate internally with these fine-grained access controls as well, whereas previously an entirely separate dropbox area was needed for sensitive documents (budgets, salary information, W-9s, contracts, etc)
    • Some permissions issues (bugs where subfolders don't inherit permissions appropriately) occasionally cause loss of trust in the product with some team members, causing them to fall back to other tools and fragmenting our document repository.
