Overall Satisfaction with Amazon Cloud Drive

Amazon Cloud Drive is being used by the organization in order to make sure that we always have our data available to us, along with Google's cloud solutions. It's important as a large amount of members of the team are constantly traveling around the world for business needs, and this ensure they have access to vital work information, even if they don't have access to their physical work stations.
  • Reliable, I've never had much issue with Amazon Cloud Drive being unavailable.
  • Easy to use interface, it has a simple drag and drop interface that almost makes the ACD files feel like they're part of the computer
  • Price, ACD has a much better price to space ratio than a lot of its competitors.
  • Speed, ACD can at times be slow to upload the files, when compared to services like Dropbox
  • Lack of free service, while 3 months is nice a lot of alternatives offer free space for life
  • We have no ROI numbers that have been reported, we have expected 100% uptime which so far we are satisfied with, so nothing about ACD has hampered our ability to function.
We selected Amazon due to the large reliable brand name behind ACD and the ability of it to be nested within other services. While Microsoft and Google were strong options, we decided that ACD had a better cost and availability uptime compared to other services. Dropbox has been used in the past but not a strong positive experience.
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.
