Overall Satisfaction with Amazon Cloud Drive

We are a company that works with musical events and provide services to perform weddings, celebrate birthdays, etc. For us the photographs, videos, and audio are indispensable. Many times we have to store templates of all kinds and we need space. We do not use PenDrives, or anything like that. Our biggest tool is the Cloud. Amazon Drive Cloud is used by our Marketing and Communications department to store different files. After a day of work, we keep all the photographs, videos and audios that we recorded and then edit them and return them to the client as a token of gratitude for having hired us.

This program helps us store information. It really is a compliment, because we use several programs, from different companies, to store data and, until now, Amazon Drive Cloud has served us well.
  • Amazon Drive Cloud is free and that is positive. It gives us 5GB of storage when we register
  • The application for smartphones is very useful because you can do what you do when you connect from the web browser
  • Amazon Drive gives you 5 GB of storage, which compared to other companies that give you 15GB, is not flashy. I think they should increase the storage capacity to a minimum of 15Gb so they can compete.
  • Amazon Drive Cloud competitors have additional text editing services, spreadsheets, online web presentation editor, among others, and this program only offers you storage. I think they should think of a strategy to become more attractive and beat the competition.
  • It is a program that helps us complement our lack of space to store information.
  • It helps us save and thanks to this program we do not have to pay for a larger amount of storage.
Amazon Drive Cloud has the advantage of being backed by one of the companies that has had the highest growth in recent years: Amazon. That gives us security and has been the main reason for us to trust this product. We believe that the security systems of this company are good enough to be quiet while our files are stored on their servers.
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.
