Overall Satisfaction with Amazon Cloud Drive

We use Amazon Cloud Drive to back up several terrabytes of focus group video recordings. That's the main thing we back up, but also some smaller files and documents.
  • As far as we know, it's the best value. Our current plan is for something like 4-5 terabytes.
  • Good interface both on the website and on the app.
  • They recently did some kind of update that changed it from Amazon Cloud Drive to Amazon Photos, which made things a bit confusing. Still unsure sometimes where to go or what app to open.
  • I wouldn't mind more robust functionality in terms of pausing uploads or seeing which individual files are uploaded and potentially duplicates of files that have already been uploaded.
  • Positive - has done exactly what we need it to do: back up massive amounts of files with relatively easy retrieval.
Actually I think both Box and Dropbox are easier to use and have better features for sharing files, especially if you need password security on those files, but Amazon is better for storing tons of data. Box and Dropbox are much more expensive to store a lot of files.
It's good for backing up massive amounts of data for a reasonable cost.
