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.

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 is one of the coolest inventions done by Microsoft to safely and securely store your data without any hesitation and worry. It has helped in easy synchronization of emails that leads to instant sharing of files in the company. Gives you an ample space of 15 GB as free to check this application in the best way possible and make a positive decision.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

Dropbox was great. But overall it didn't fix our needs and we wanted to stick with one platform. Cost was another factor. We were able to do more with onedrive and installation was also easy to do.

We have not used any other products other than just Microsoft email and sometimes used DropBox which has limited capabilities. OneDrive is awesome aside from minor fixes it allows our organization to share information effectively and always have accessibility to each others' work.
