High Availability, with High Performance, IAM access control, and server-side encryption at a low cost

What is our primary use case?

The primary use case of this solution is for the storage of large amounts of data. It's a public cloud deployment model that anyone can deploy. There is no need to upgrade as they don't have versions, it's a managed service, it's hybrid. There are changes that we make internally. It's Amazon S3.

Pros and Cons

  • "It's good for starting up because you only pay for what you use."
  • "A feature that should be included is to find and provide a HIPPA compliant solution for the Presigned URL."

What other advice do I have?

It's difficult to offer advice as it depends on the use case and what this solution is intended for. This solution is managed fully, and there is no need for upgrades or anything. It's cloud-based. If you just Gmail, you don't upgrade Gmail. I would recommend this solution for companies of any size. It's good for starting up because you only pay for what you use. It's internet-capable, making it good for any company. I would rate this solution a ten out of ten.

The space feature is great and installation is quick and easy

What is our primary use case?

Our primary use case of this solution is for personal files and file storage. So basically I use the solution as long-term storage for photos, documents, or media files that we used over the years.

Pros and Cons

  • "The program is very stable."
  • "I am not sure what will happen if you forget to renew your license."

What other advice do I have?

I will rate this solution an eight out of ten. I think there is a lot of distrust when it comes to giving your data to Google. They're a commercially based company, so putting anything on Google Drive might not be hundred percent secure and how will I know for sure that nothing's going to happen to my file? You don't have the assurance, so it's always a security issue when giving your files to Google Drive to store. I don't think security is Google's first priority, although it is a flexible, good software. That's why I give it eight.

Free, easy to use, access and share files from any device

What is our primary use case?

The primary use case of this solution is to store and share files between several devices and also as a repository to have harmonization of the same versions of the same documents. The deployment model is a hybrid cloud because I use it on my desktop, my laptop, on my mobile, and it operates in the cloud.

Pros and Cons

  • "The most valuable feature of this solution is the ability to access files and documents from any device, anywhere."
  • "The Security and privacy of this solution need improvement."

What other advice do I have?

Everyone now is on the cloud using some cloud-based solution. Dropbox is not unique anymore, as there are several storage solutions available. Dropbox is easy to use, easy to share, and easy to store documents and files. This solution works fine and it has what I need. I am just a simple user. I am satisfied with this solution and I am not changing. I am using the desktop client and I can upload and move folders. If you need to share files, then Dropbox is a good solution. I would rate this solution a nine out of ten.
