It is well suited for small to mid sized business and pricing wise it is cheap and comparable to other cloud storage provider.
There is ease of uploading data but feature wise it is limited so if your business requires just limited number of features and they are available in amazon drive then I would recommend it else go for other available solution in the market.

Amazon Drive can be helpful in a variety of scenarios. It works best as a cloud back up - a place to store files, photos, and videos that are important and need to be safeguarded. I would not recommend it for collaborative document management and feel that there are other platforms better suited for that need. Amazon Drive can be programmed to upload specific folders from your desktop computer automatically. This is very helpful and takes the guesswork out of protecting your documents.

Solid drag and drop functionality that is easy to use and teach others to use. Files are based in the cloud so if you have a remotely distributed workforce, they can easily access them and you can manage the permissions accordingly. If you have a full enterprise operation, Sharepoint might be better for your workforce. Amazon Drive is better suited for small and mid-sized businesses.

It's good to store personal projects that you want to hang on to. It's also great for creating redundant back ups so you can be assured your data will have a spot somewhere when it comes to retrieving it for later in the worst-case scenarios. The only thing is to remember to add it.

An excellent scenario for Amazon Drive Cloud is one where the main customer will only need to store a little information in the cloud for free. Many times we run out of space and do not want to pay for a larger storage capacity, and that's where Amazon Drive Cloud has strength because it's a free service, which gives you 5GB.

Now, Amazon Drive Cloud is not very well known and that decreases its potential. We do not recommend this software to store large amounts of information, especially videos and audio because sure 5GB will not be enough.

A quick cloud

In general, Amazon Cloud is a pretty good cloud that may perhaps improve even more. You have 5GB starting, but if you want to buy more space you can and it is cheaper than with other similar software. You can create, like with other cloud storage providers, a folder on the computer that allows access without having an Internet connection. It also has Android, iPhone, Mac and Windows options so you can handle your files in an easier way.

It is still an affordable, yet easy enough solution to use. Generally decent use, despite some throttling down of speeds at certain times. Communication could be better, but generally not that need as availability is pretty good.

Amazon Cloud Drive is a fantastic backup solution for storing your digital files on the web, but if you want to manage, tweak, organize or otherwise maintain those files after they have reached the cloud, the experience immediately begins to suffer. This is especially noted when major competitor products like Microsoft and Dropbox offer similar services at similar prices, but offer far better interfaces for file management.

Amazon Cloud Drive would be well suited for long term storage but not good for daily use. This is because there is presently no sync option that I could find. Other services like Google Cloud and Microsoft OneDrive could be used to substitute this service for cheaper. One option that I could find with Amazon Cloud that I didn't see with other providers is the option to limit the bandwidth used by the app.

Very much suited for students and businesses. Due to the pricing, it is not suited or worth it for an average user who just wants to have a cloud drive for their files. Not suggested for the top secret files and folders to be kept in the amazon cloud drive since the security is very much questionable.

I am not sure if it is suited in specific situations since I have not used any other cloud services. I think that the EC2 service is a good option since the space required by the user is not constant, it expands and contracts depending upon the usage. This also reduces the amount the user needs to pay for idle space.

Amazon is incredible...a trusted company, so of course we trust their cloud service! It's been such a smooth workflow using their cloud service. We often travel to see clients, and sometimes we may not have the latest version of a presentation because people are rushing and things can get confusing. Now we're never worried because we can always fetch them from the cloud.

Amazon Cloud is well suited for companies seeking an easy way to set up a secure cloud storage for your photos, files, videos, music, and more. It was also made to be accessible while on the go via mobile phones, tablets, and desktop computers. This makes it perfectly viable for business and business meetings where you have to be traveling.

It may not be appropriate for businesses on tighter budgets that are limited. There are alternatives that ooffersimilar functionality for free although limited in functionality.

Besides price concerns, I wouldn't feel ACD is any less suited than its alternatives. As long as Amazon is able to fix their speed issues and keep their same level of reliability I'm very satisfied. I believe Amazon's brand also really helps them feel professional, so I don't think there's anything that really would stop me from recommending them.
