Google Drive & Amazon S3

Google had been pretty already in the clouds but in 2012 it started to drive another pillar with the launch of its online storage -- Google Drive. If it’s your first exposure to cloud service then Google Drive perhaps will grow on you for saving videos, photos, PDFs and more. It allows you to collaborate in the old way as Google Docs did while it also tracks changes on documents and keeps revision copies of up to 30 days or the last 100 revisions.

Amazon S3 has a simple interface that enables you to use to store and retrieve any amount of data at any time from anywhere on the web. People who choose Amazon S3 may be attracted by some advantages such as

  • Store data in Buckets: Buckets are the fundamental container in Amazon S3 for data storage. You’re able to upload as many objects as you like. Each object can contain up to 5TB of data.
  • Permissions: Grant or deny access to others who want to upload/download data. Authentication mechanisms will keep data secure from unauthorized access.
  • Interface: Use standards-based REST and SOAP interfaces designed to work with any Internet-development toolkit.

Anyway, nothing is perfect so part of people employ both of these two cloud drives. But what should you do when you intend to back up Google Drive to Amazon S3 or conversely? Certainly, no one would like to do sync one by one manually right? Don’t worry, MultCloud offers a better way.
