OneDrive from Microsoft is a cloud storage and file syncing service.https://media.trustradius.com/product-logos/sR/Aq/R8ZLRHTMSI8D.PNGOne Drive for the Mobile Office is a GoOne Drive is currently used in our Street Outreach Program. This program has only one office and most work is done outside of the office. This makes One Drive a good fit for the program. This enables file use and sharing while outreach workers are in the field. A traditional stationary hard drive for files simply would not work. One Drive is used to access files make changes and sync, while our members are mobile. One Drive is used to store presentations, documents, photos, and video files. It makes accessing them on the go easy.,One Drive integrates wonderfully with the Microsoft Suite. Word, Excel, and PowerPoint documents are easy to edit and create. One Drive has a fair amount of free storage as well, we have not had to buy storage and have been using it for six years. Sharing documents with others on One Drive is easy as well. The option to view or edit is very useful.,The editing in One Drive is limited compared to the computer versions of Word, Excel, and Power Point. One Drive sometimes takes a while to sync files. We have noticed they are not immediately updated. One Drive is not entirely compatible with Goggle Documents, there are some formatting issues when using the same document formats.,9,One Drive has made it possible to have mobile offices, while keeping files synced. One Drive has saved the need for external document backups as the could is used. One Drive has made it possible to move forward with presentations even if a flash drive was left behind.,Google Drive,Google Drive, Slack, Adobe PhotoshopAn Effective Product OverallWe are using OneDrive in a few isolated departments and not companywide. It addresses a constant issue that we have as a SaaS company, which is the storage of sensitive data. We need to store things like lead data, but also need to make sure it is on tight lockdown. OneDrive is good for this.,OneDrive is great for securely storing data. Easy and fairly intuitive. Not very hard to teach someone how to use.,The downloadable application for the desktop is rather clunky. Free version has very limited storage. Can be a bit flustering at times.,9,Protects our data Stores our data Difficult to sync with hard drive storage,9,8,Google Cloud AI and Apple iCloud,Asana, Salesforce App Cloud, CallidusCloud SalesSelectorGreat way to centralize all files - The OneDrive to rule them allI don't think any ONE product can be used solely within an org, but we do a good enough job I feel. We needed a solution that was user-friendly, easy to navigate and use from a permissions standpoint. As a growing org, we desperately needed something to house all of our files instead of relying on everyone keeping multiple copies on computers. Our biggest problem OneDrive helped with is ONE location for all updated marketing materials and projects we are working on. There are a few people that are using GDrive or Box, etc. but the move to OneDrive was seamless and easy for us to make happen and was done quickly and with relatively low effort.,Current copies of updated docs Ease of use with mobile app/Desktop Seamless integration within Microsoft ecosystem,Late to the game with Dropbox, Box, etc Need to double down on their app access like their desktop experience Opening up additional file access like MacOS related,9,ROI - One file access point instead of multiple across the organization. Document collaboration. Speed of information greatly improved.,9,9,Google Drive and Dropbox,SugarCRM, Outreach, WorkfrontCost effective cloud storageIt is being used by me individually at the moment and we haven't started collaboration. It is a good option for saving files on the go and accessing them from anywhere.,It came with our Office 365 license and was very easy to install and set up. Decent amount of included storage. Flexible options regarding which folder to sync at which device.,Security. File sharing with other Office 365 users can be a bit confusing.,9,Its seamless integration into Office 365 cuts down IT support time for installation and configuration, etc. Very cost-effective.,9,5,DropboxRobust and User Friendly Data Storage SolutionOneDrive is being used as a solution to save user files and documents and synchronize the data with other endpoint user devices. We recently moved our users to use Virtual Desktop Infrastructure (VDI) and we used this storage solution to store the data. This became available to us with Office365.,Data availability when using a different system. I save documents on my work computer and I can access it from my personal computer when logged in using the same corporate account. There is no need for an external drive to plug in and copy data. Speed of data synchronization.,Storage restriction. Since this is being shared there will be a restriction on how much data you can save.,9,Positive - ease of use and protecting user data. Positive - access to your data from anywhere. Positive- ensuring your data will not get lost, even if there is a hardware failure on your personal device.,9,9,DropboxPracticalOneDrive is used by the entire company, with a little more than 200 employees. It is incorporated into our corporate email, where we acquired the entire Office 365 package. We concentrate on shared and private files, documents that accompany us everywhere, everything in the tool helps us to make work routines more practical.,It is very easy to use, intuitive, has no way to get in the way. Useful tools in the suite. Availability, being in the cloud, follows you wherever you go, you only need a connection to the web. Lightweight, does not crash, loads files quickly.,Sharing within a group was a bit confusing, since the existence of multiple files was shared with multiple emails and I could not keep track of them. I needed to add each email to the shared folder.,10,Still no negative impact. Since it was implemented in the company, the impact has been positive due to the collaboration resources in the work environment.,Google Drive,TeamViewer, Oracle VM VirtualBox, Skype, Adobe Acrobat DC,9,9OneDrive - A Great Replacement for Personal ServersOneDrive is being rolled out as a replacement for individual servers for everyone at my global organization. It is addressing the need for cloud storage, collaboration, and secure mobile access. It's helping us stop the use of unapproved and less secure tools like Google Drive and Basecamp. Employees are excited about using it due to the positive improvements to the UX and ease of use.,User Experience - OneDrive is easy to use. It's natively integrated on everyone's computers after downloading it from our App portal. It's just like using local file management on your computer. You can easily tell when files are confirmed to be uploaded with intuitive green check marks. Web Access - If for some reason you need to access your files from a browser instead of natively, the experience is still positive. When opening a OneDrive file in browser, you can edit in browser with the browser office apps. Mobile Access - Accessing files on the go is critical these days. The OneDrive mobile app is easy to use and allows you to see all of your files and files shared with you. Paired with other O365 apps, you can also edit files on the go which is very convenient. The O365 mobile apps are great!,Sending Links - Though you can easily share links to files from the web experience, it isn't the same on the native experience. It would be nice if you could right click on a file to share its location with someone vs. opening the office application to share with others. File Character Restrictions - This isn't just with OneDrive, but sometimes files will not upload due to an unsupported character in the file name.,10,Positive - Less dependency on insecure tools that pose a risk to our business (Google Drive, Dropbox, Basecamp) Positive - Increased employee productivity due to multi-device access to files and mobile friendly experience. Positive - Increased collaboration on files as opposed to previously sending files back and forth.,10,10,Google Drive and Dropbox,Microsoft Office 365, Workfront, Skype for Business (formerly Lync)OneDrive--A great solution for cloud-based storageOneDrive has replaced Box at my company. OneDrive is being used as the single cloud-based location to which we update, store and sync all of our files regardless of where we are. This allows me to quickly and easily share files with my team and colleagues giving them access to real-time updates without having to send them multiple files as a document changes.,Easy sync between my computer and the cloud. I just select the folder(s) to sync and I'm done. Easily share files with others. This allows for fast and simple collaboration between numerous individuals. Automatic synchronization between selected local folders and my OneDrive cloud folder. I can automatically sync all my local documents to the cloud for easy access when not at my computer.,It would be great if my cloud-based folders and files could be presented in my Windows Explorer without having to synchronize them locally. I could then simply browse them and if necessary, download them as needed. The "cloud" icon looks very much like many other cloud-based storage icons making it less than intuitive to know which one to click. There should be options to select other icons for the system tray application. I have both a personal and corporate OneDrive account and would prefer to access them both from one system tray icon. Currently I have two separate icons.,10,We added OneDrive as a corporate-wide cloud storage solution in conjunction with our upgrade to Office 365. It was a seamless integration. We have experienced significant cost savings over Box as a cloud storage solution.,Box and Google Drive,Microsoft Office 365, TIBCO Jaspersoft, SlackOneDrive, Dropbox and Google Drive, Oh My! My Team's decision to settle on OneDrive for Knowledge ManagementOur organization moved away from a mix of Dropbox and Google Drive to using OneDrive/SharePoint as our knowledge management / information architecture solution. It's being used organization-wide, albeit with some stragglers still using Google Drive for some collaborative editing, and others occasionally still using email attachments to circulate documents and collaborate. OneDrive, in concert with SharePoint, allows our team to synchronize their work to our cloud storage, collaborate in real-time, share links to documents rather than send attachments and track changes, and control permissions to individual folders or documents to allow for collaboration with external partners as well as restrict access based on roles internally.,OneDrive integrates with my MacBook fairly well, allowing me to share documents and move fairly seamlessly between local and web versions of a file. OneDrive keeps things in sync fairly quickly and without consuming a lot of system resources. OneDrive (along with Sharepoint's) permissions capabilities are much more fine-grained than Dropbox.,OneDrive's visual feedback in Finder as to whether a file is syncing or already synced isn't always up-to-date with the actual status of these files. OneDrive (on Mac) will occasionally fail to sync for errors that aren't accurate, requiring a restart. OneDrive (on Mac) will occasionally fail for file name issues, where filenames allowed on Mac are not allowed on SharePoint, without providing an easy mechanism for fixing them. The real-time collaborative editing user experience is not as good as Google Drive.,7,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.,Dropbox Business and Google Drive,Microsoft ProjectOneDrive - a matured cloud providerOneDrive is part of the Office 365 offering, so each user in the organization has access to OneDrive cloud space under their account. In our company, OneDrive is used for personal work documents that users may or may not share with other users and/or the outside world. That's just our case use, but it is also the recommended way to use OneDrive per Microsoft. It allows the users to have their own cloud folder, so they can access their own files from virtually anywhere, and it keeps the general company repository separate from personal stuff.,Selective folder sync - you can easily pick and choose which folders sync to a person's computer The actual file is not synced until it is needed - you see the file, but until you need it, it takes up no space on your device! Available on virtually any device that has internet access - phone/tablet apps, browser based access, sync client access,Sync client (Windows) can continue to be updated such that it becomes even more stable Mobile apps should be tweaked a bit more - they can be more intuitive,10,Being bundled into our Office 365 accounts makes the service very inexpensive compared to alternative cloud providers. Providing our users with a cloud storage solution has definitely benefited our mobile employees by allowing them to have the files they need accessible to them in the field. We're able to control the external sharing of documents to a much greater degree with OneDrive.,,Dropbox Business, Box, Accounting by Wave, LogMeIn Central, Trello, QuickBooks Online, Avast Business Antivirus, Magento Open Source, NCR Counterpoint, Aldelo POSGreat cloud service, stacks up against competitorsOneDrive is a brand new tool being used by my company as a Cloud sharing service. We share documents for collaboration, work flows for input, and HR tracking. It's being used all over the company, slowly being picked up from department to department. It helps to have a central place to put files that are only accessible to those you invite.,Business version has very large limit, likely will never run out of space. Live editing, you can see who is working in what (kind of like Google Drive). Auto-save feature!! Has saved me more than once for sure.,When internet connectivity is bad, there is not a back up way to save. Sometimes files show up for some people and not for others. If this is a connectivity issue, they should still be present in the folder but maybe be marked as grey to show that they are still uploading. Staff have accidentally written over things because of the Auto-save feature. Both a blessing and a curse in that way, sometimes you have to manually turn it off if you are just running scenarios.,8,Helps to manage tasks, keeps everyone aware of progress made (user versioning features). Not particularly expensive for a large company, especially with virtually unlimited space. Team in the field complains about the connectivity reliability feature. Really a sore point, but that's for any cloud service.,Dropbox Business, Dropbox and Google DriveOneDrive SolutionsWorking in an educational facility, OneDrive is used for instructors' personal drives for storage of documents related to instruction and other school-based materials. As part of our organization's rollout of Office 365 and other Office apps, our organization has utilized OneDrive instead of local server based personal storage options. It is also used as a platform for collaboration between instructors using the cloud-based sharing tools available.,Accessibility on PC - OneDrive is integrated and easy to access on Windows-based PCs. Service is Reliable - The OneDrive service rarely goes offline. Integration with Office Apps - OneDrive integrated with other Office applications, such as Microsoft Word, to allow for a seamless creation and document saving process.,User Interface - Compared to their main competitor, Google Drive, the interface feels 'clunky'. Some actions do not feel intuitive or have an odd layout. Integration on Mac - On Apple Mac computers, the OneDrive app (especially OneDrive for Business) is unreliable and does not work as well as its PC counterpart. Storage Limits - While not unique to OneDrive, storage limits on free personal accounts are slim, requiring a paid subscription for larger storage tiers.,7,Uniform rollout for all users has brought organization consistency. Less reliance on in-house network specialists to resolve storage based issues.,Google Drive,Wix, Adobe FlashExcellent service for your files in the cloudCurrently OneDrive is one of the main work tools in the company, it is used by all users to share documents, save their files and be able to work from home without the need of a VPN connection. Our employees have 24-hour availability of all their documents from anywhere in the world.,It allows you to save all the information you require. You can synchronize with your computer. You can share information easily.,You require good bandwidth on your internet. To synchronize your files from OneDrive to your computer you need to have enough space on your hard drive. Sometimes OneDrive does not synchronize some files.,9,We have decreased the amount of hard disk space on the servers. Many users still do not adapt to using the tool. Users who have adapted can improve their work performance.,Dropbox,Google Drive, DropboxFeatures out the wazoo but still somewhat clunkyOur entire organization uses OneDrive. It functions as a continuous backup of the files on my laptop, allows my team (and the entire company) to share files and collaboratively work on documents, spreadsheets, images, slide decks, etc. The ability to collaborate—and especially for multiple people to collaborate on the same document at the same time—is quite useful.,I especially appreciate OneDrive as a way for us to store documents in the cloud. I make sure that all mission-critical work is included in a OneDrive-synced folder, and therefore don't have to worry if my computer crashes or hard drive fails. Collaboration. The ability for multiple people to work on a document at the same time is key. Integration with Word, Excel, PowerPoint, etc. Being able to open a doc in the native desktop apps, then save it and know that it's updated automatically in OneDrive is great. Integration with Mac OS X. Being able to share docs right from the Finder is excellent.,Occasionally the backup functionality fails for certain files. This is rare (and you can see exactly what is synced and what is not) but I am still unclear as to why certain files resist syncing. The browser-based apps for Word, Excel, and PowerPoint not only lack the full-featured functionality of the native desktop apps, but it's clear they weren't designed for browsers. My biggest point of comparison is Google Docs, Sheets & Slides. While Google's apps may not be as powerful, they were designed for a browser from the ground up, they run more smoothly and my team would prefer to collaborate in Google than in OneDrive. It's just a little clunky and could be more user-friendly. Specifically, sharing settings can be confusing or frustrating and require multiple steps to approve when someone requests access to a doc. It's more of a pain to invite external people to contribute to a doc as they have to sign up for a Microsoft account in order to access the docs.,7,I can't speak to business metrics, but I can say that it is very helpful to have every single person in my company using the same system.,Google Drive,Wrike, Adobe Photoshop, Adobe Premiere Pro, Slack, Adobe Acrobat DC, Cisco WebEx Teams (formerly Cisco Spark), SnagitOnedrive: A Honest ReviewOneDrive is being used as a file transfer method, that allows for work on documents between multiple users. This allows them to change what they need, as well as share what they want easily from whereever they are, as long as they have an internet connection. This product helped create the more collaborative feel that the department was missing.,Ease of use: Allows for users to access and work through the environment easily, without much training or hand holding. Access: You can use this from anywhere, as long as you have an active internet connection. Redundancy: It allows for multiple copies to be kept in multiple places. This helps if something was deleted by mistake.,Possibility of Syncing issues. File size restraints The lack of features coming from the native app to the online app.,9,We have really used Onedrive to help speed the process up of document sharing and collaboration. With this in mind, we are able to speed up our through-put. This is a definite positive to the ROI for our department.,Google Drive and Dropbox,Google Drive, DropboxOneDrive - Almost there.....Being a Microsoft shop, the integration of OneDrive into the OS has been a boon to users. We have leveraged this integration by configuring the service to include the users desktop and documents folders to provide a seamless "cloud backup" of their important files. Through this, users always have access to their most important documents regardless of the device being used.,Simple user interface. Used in conjunction with the Windows OS, users simply need to know how to place a file in a folder and not have to deal with a complicated client. Easily noticeable visual cues regarding the status of a document sync to the cloud drive. Full Integration into other Microsoft products , e.g Office. The web interface provides a familiar look to people accustomed to using Windows devices and an easy interface to learn for those who are not.,Better integration into other Operating Systems, e.g OSX and Linux. While a client can integrate with these, the experience is not as seamless as that in Windows. Better image tools allowing online processing of pictures. The ability to stream music from the service.,8,OneDrive has made device replacement faster as users no longer have many files stored locally. Increase in productivity as users are now able to work from anywhere on practically any device they choose. Decrease in downtime as users are no longer hampered by a faulty device. They can simply switch to another device and continue working.,Google Drive, Apple iCloud and Dropbox,UiPath Enterprise RPA Platform, OutSystems,,10,Allowing users to work from any device at anytime, anywhere. Provide a collaborative platform that allows document sharing that works with existing company technologies Real time sync of files and documents to the cloud service allowing the user to seamlessly move between devices,Reduce user downtime by syncing a users laptop\pc user folders to the cloud service. Through this, an indirect backup is achieved allowing a new laptop\PC to be issued without have to worry about file backups,Possible elimination of laptops\pc's for mobile users in favor of tablets with OneDrive as the primary storage for files. Possible sharing of a single account among, for example, sales personnel and their support staff. Allows real time access to their files as they are uploaded. Of course, the necessary security will need to be in place to prevent documents from being incorrectly shelved.,9OneDrive ReviewA very useful tool for syncing file backups to the cloud. We used Active Directory to move all users' folders (Desktop, Documents, Pictures, and Videos) to OneDrive. They are all backed up and synced immediately to the cloud. When a user's computer goes down or we need to set them up on another device, we just create a new profile and then sign the into OneDrive and they have access to all their files and they are kept in sync across devices. Not easy to deploy but a good solution.,Backing up files in real time. Clou- based backups. The speed of syncs is very good. Affordable. Version control.,Very little monitoring capabilities for the admins. Using PowerShell to generate user reports (usage, sync status, etc.). The online admin interface says these reports are coming but it has said that for over a year. Difficult to release to too many users. Ended up having to use some detailed scripts with AD to get it installed. Little to no resources for developers/administrators. Thanks, MS. Must rely on the MS user network.,7,We now have all users major profile folders/files backed up to their OneDrive profiles. Took a very long time to roll out OneDrive through AD and find a way to monitor if users OneDrive's were synced. No resources on any logging or errors; test and test more. Easy to get access to a user's files on another device by signing them into OneDrive. Good solution for sharing/syncing a folder with multiple users.,Google Drive,LastPass, RingCentral, RingCentral MeetingsAn excellent cloud storage and file sharing option for windows users.Onedrive is extremely useful and it is used in every department of our business. We use it to store and save every type of file in the cloud and that way we can access them in every device or PC of our company. By using it, we only need an internet connection to share files, and when there are no flash drives or portable hard drives is the best tool for copying or exchanging data and information between our PCs.,It comes preinstalled with windows 8 and 10 and it automatically links your Microsoft account, so accessing our files from the cloud is really easy and requires no installations. Since it was developed by Microsoft it has an almost perfect integration with Windows operating system (which is the most common system used in every business) so there are almost no bugs or problems. Having a backup of information in the cloud is extremely useful since it can be accessed anywhere just with an internet connection.,Something I found is that there is no encryption in a loaded file. For example, when uploading a password protected file from Excel, that protection will be lost in the cloud. It's free space is really limited, just 5 GB, so if you need more space be prepared to pay. It can be a bit buggy when online.,8,It has had a positive impact because it allows us to share files with coworkers easily without the need of additional hardware. The ability to access information just with an internet connection is excellent while working in the clients offices or in the field.,Google Drive and Apple iCloud,Google Drive, Apple iCloudWhy we didn't select OneDrive as our corporate file sharing solutionOneDrive is enabled on all our users because of our O365 subscriptions but the official solution that is promoted and supported is Google Drive. The only real plus value of OneDrive is the huge 1TB included of storage with O365 subscriptions. The OneDrive client is also useful to sync Sharepoint sites.,Only solution to sync Sharepoint sites Best storage to price ratio Good integration on Windows,OneDrive client is horrible on macOS Official OneDrive client is non-existent on Linux OneDrive support on older Windows versions like 8.1 and less is still buggy Sharepoint still tries to use the old OneDrive client by default. You need to go in the setting and tell it to use the new client. Even if it is a lot better then before, OneDrive client is still often not able to sync folders with huge items or a huge amount of small items.,6,OneDrive allows our users to sync and share Microsoft Office documents via shared SharePoint sites OneDrive with it's 1TB storage allows our users to publicly share huge files that would otherwise require an paid storage upgrade on Google Drive side With Sharepoint and the Office inside web browser, it allows us to create, edit and save files from a phone, tablet or from a computer that doesn't have Office installed,Google Drive, Dropbox Business, ownCloud and Box,ownCloud, Box, Google Drive, Snagit, Symantec Endpoint Protection, Remote Desktop Manager, Microsoft Office 2016, Microsoft AzureOneDrive useful as an add-on to Office 365, not something I'd ever buy on its own.For the most part, we don't make institution-wide use of OneDrive because of a few inherent limitations of OneDrive and the other software that we use. First, OneDrive is not good at "pot sharing" among the organization. What I'd like to be able to do is move our entire server of old files onto a OneDrive pot (each user gets 1 TB) that everyone has access to, but that is unnecessarily difficult and involves some sharing shenanigans that most of our users are not technically capable of navigating. So users use it in different ways. I use it as a pot for keeping access to all of the files I download across multiple devices, since our primary document management system requires that we download, edit, and re-upload to manipulate files. OneDrive is my "in process" and medium term storage pot, in the event that I manipulate a file but don't get to the re-upload part.,Good syncing for the most part. Good availability from multiple device species. iOS app is good enough, made nicer by the fact that you can now save files and folders for offline use.,Syncing has some oddities, like if the wrong kind of punctuation mark is in the file name. Sharing folders to the entire organization is hard, if not impossible. Creating one shared pot for global access does not seem possible without some goofy work-arounds.,6,Modest increase in productivity inasmuch as I no longer have to VPN to my local office machine to upload an updated version of a document I downloaded from our storage location and worked on. Has allowed some sequestration of personal contents I store on there, wasn't available on our earlier mass storage.,Dropbox, Dropbox for Business, Google Drive and Box,Google Drive, Canva, Microsoft Office 365, OmniFocusSimple and easy to use cloud storage and document collaboration platformWe use OneDrive as the shared content library for our global go-to-market teams.

Saving us time. We reduced our in-house backups,Dropbox for Business,TeamViewer, Oracle VM VirtualBox, Skype for BusinessOneDrive ReviewOur organization uses onedrive to share, view and store documents amongst different departments. This feature helps our organization tremendously because we no longer have to wait for documents to be hand delivered or wait for a specific person to be available to obtain documents. Now these documents are housed in a central location we all have access to.,Storing documents Accessibility amongst different departments Very clear interface,Storage cloud maximum More web based apps where files can be shared and edited Update Microsoft Office programs,9,Allows us to get information in timely manner Not everyone is tech savvy so it can still be cumbersome trying to get old timers to use so productivity time is sometimes low Sharing information with user face is very simple,,Microsoft AccessOneDrive, the company and you, closer than everCurrently, OneDrive is available for all users in the organization, limited to a maximum of 500 MB per user. It is a good method to share files in a collaborative way. Particularly, I try to save my critical files there and use it as a backup instead of saving locally in my device; I upload directly in OneDrive.,It is very good to share files and grant different typed of access to users. It is pretty fast to upload/download the files. You can authenticate with your AD account, which makes this easier to log in and this makes people feel more comfortable with the use of the tool.,There are some conflicts when saving files that require manual action from users. When a user is non-IT related, they might not know how to resolve the conflict and they don't know if their files are being kept updated or not. Bandwidth usage is an issue when somebody moves big folders or files to OneDrive. If many users do that at the same time, network performance can be affected. Sometimes it is hard to realize who you are sharing files with. Maybe some custom views should be created so it is easier to review the files I'm sharing with other users and with which privilege.,9,It reduced the volume of inbound/outbound email traffic as links are shared instead of heavy files. I still think this new approach of O365 and OneDrive has to develop knowledge for end users. It is a very different approach from what it used to be in prior versions so developing people's abilities to use these tools MUST be addressed somehow. You can have the best tools, but people need to learn how to use them.,Google Drive and Dropbox for Business,Google Drive, Dropbox for Business, Apple iCloudOneDrive is the only "DRIVE"Since many of the files we send to our clients are large (over 10 mb), being able to 'share' with other people is very helpful.,Since this software can run on your PC, it makes it very easy to drag and drop files for easy back up and file sharing needs. Files sync quickly and can be accessed online or from another PC. You can easily save and file into the OneDrive folder and it will be automatically backed up. Collaborative editing of a file is also a very nice feature.,I wish I could limit the download/upload bandwidth that the program uses. I wish you could "right" click on a file and send it to the OneDrive folder. I don't like that for other people to access the files, they must have a Microsoft account.,10,Being able to store large files in the cloud allows our business to save money on local storage costs. Being able to have multiple people work on the same file without having to email it back and forth saves the company money by decreasing the labor time people have to spend creating emails. There could be a problem with storing information in the cloud if internet service is interrupted and access is needed to a particular file.,Google Drive, Dropbox and Dropbox for Business,Google Drive, Dropbox, Dropbox for Business

We have found Google Drive and One Drive fairly comparable. Both offer on the go solutions and sync for use in the office and in the field. Both have document compatibility although neither transfers with the formatting quite right. One Drive offers less free storage, but it is still a good amount. Editing on both cloud drives is fairly straight forward and intuitive. Google Drive does make editing as a team somewhat more streamlined.

Alternatives Considered

The biggest downfall of something like Dropbox is it isn't natively built into additional software like GDrive or OneDrive. We ultimately selected OneDrive because of the ecosystem we are on. For us, it just made a lot of sense as a business since everyone was proficient and familiar with Microsoft products since we use them daily with their suite of products. We had a hard time with GDrive because a lot of the similarities are on point and Google historically has a better look and feel. Ultimately for us, the price was fair and we pulled the trigger.

OneDrive - A Great Replacement for Personal Servers

I believe OneDrive was selected due to Microsoft's proven record on information security. It is easily integrated with other apps that employees use within the office suite. Google and Dropbox services do not seem as secure as Microsoft O365 products. In a highly regulated industry, we need a secure cloud storage platform and are happy with OneDrive so far.

OneDrive--A great solution for cloud-based storage

We moved our corporate storage from Box to OneDrive to take advantage of seamless integration with both Office 365 and SharePoint live. We evaluated Google Drive but it leaned too heavily toward Google Docs. We have a substantial investment in Microsoft Office-based documentation and therefore decided on OneDrive.

OneDrive, Dropbox and Google Drive, Oh My! My Team's decision to settle on OneDrive for Knowledge Management

As previously mentioned, Google Drive is better for real-time collaboration, but not as intuitive when it comes to staying organized within a folder structure. Permissions model is easy to use but fairly unsophisticated.

Dropbox doesn't offer real-time collaboration at all (to my knowledge), and doesn't offer the same fine-grained permissions that OneDrive does. It is a decent document store and not much else.

OneDrive - a matured cloud provider

Score 10 out of 10

I mentioned in another area that OneDrive is bundled into our Office 365 accounts - so let me start there. Dropbox will cost you $10 and more per month. Our entire Office 365 account costs $12.50/month for each user - and we get full Office with that. Enough said there. As far as features go - I've found that most of these cloud storage providers all afford similar feature sets as far as sync clients; apps and addons; storage space; etc. - so choosing one or the other really goes to the needs of the company and of course - what's in place already. If your company uses Google apps - Dropbox might make more sense because of tighter integrations. However - if you already use Office 365 in some iteration, OneDrive is already baked in.

Google Drive provides similar functionality. Either choice would have been beneficial for our organization, however we chose OneDrive due to the organization's initiative to utilize Office Apps and OneDrive's integration made sense, fitting in with that initiative.

OneDrive compared to other products, allows you to create, edit, delete any file you have inside your OneDrive. You can create your Office documents without having the tool installed on your computer, that is, OneDrive has its own Office OnLine for the user's convenience. Without a doubt, it has many more tools than its competitors.

As mentioned earlier, OneDrive is certainly a good solution for large enterprises. But when I work with other organizations or for my own personal, outside-of-work use, I prefer Google Drive, simply because it's a platform that nearly everyone is already using to some degree: more user-friendly, and with a better browser-based experience.

OneDrive is just as good as its competitors. In some situations the program might shine the greatest, due to the creators and support team that stands behind this product. I do like this product more that Dropbox due to the GUI and ease of use for the program. This program will also be able to compete on the same level as Google Drive as well.

While other cloud storage services exist, some with better compatibility to other Operating Systems, the integration of OneDrive has proven to be its winning feature. Organizations that use Microsoft products heavily would find it a valuable asset, with its familiar interface and plethora of features online. Users don't see it as something additional to learn but as an extension of a product they are already familiar with.

Since Microsoft's operating systems are the most used in business, the fact that it already comes installed with Windows 8 and 10 and that it has almost no flaws while working with said operative systems makes it more streamlined for file sharing in a company than it's competitors, not to say that the other options are not great.

Why we didn't select OneDrive as our corporate file sharing solution

Vetted Review

The only things that OneDrive does better then everyone else is the integration into Sharepoint/Office documents and the 1TB storage at this price range.

Our corporate solution is Google Drive mainly because of the robust client, better cooperation inside documents, better support for other OSs, etc.

If you really need to storage OneDrive is probably the cheapest option out there, but you would also not need the more advanced features that most others offer.

In every situation I find Google Drive to be superior. Superior UI, searching, sync tool, overall feel.

It operates on an even playing field with Dropbox and Dropbox for Business and Box.com. It is similar enough that I don't feel a desire or compulsion to go out and get Dropbox as a subscription, but I also would never buy OneDrive for its own value, I only take it because it comes with O365.

OneDrive is part of our O365 platform so was an easy choice based on cost. For our initial needs, it has served us well but we are actively looking at more robust solutions that don’t just store data but give us detailed intelligence on how content is being used, in which situations and allows us to push out just in time content to all platforms instantly as needed.

OneDrive's main advantage is the relationship with Microsoft Operating System and other business products such as Office. It is easy to integrate into AD and data is safe. Other advantage is that you can download the desktop version and easily see the status of each file you have in OneDrive.

We selected OneDrive because the software integrates well into the other Microsoft Office Suite products. OneDrive, gives you that 1TB of storage for less money than Google Drive does. Despite being a Microsoft product, OneDrive has clients for non-Microsoft operating systems, too, including Mac OS, iOS and Android. OneDrive's non-password protected link makes it easier for the receiver to view files.
