Integration of Amazon S3 and Dropbox

Amazon S3 and Dropbox are two of the most popular cloud-based storage services available. Dropbox is a free service for storing files on your computer, while Amazon S3 is a service for storing data in the cloud. While both services have their benefits, they are very different from each other. This paper will compare and contrast these two services, as well as look at the effects of combining them together.

The first thing to compare and contrast is the integration of the services. Amazon S3 can be integrated with Dropbox so that any file placed into one folder on your Dropbox account will automatically be stored in an Amazon S3 bucket. This allows files to be easily backed up in the event that a computer crashes or a hard drive fails. By storing files on both of these platforms, users can ensure that their data is safe from hardware failure and can also access it from anywhere they have internet access. Additionally, if there is some sort of emergency, users can use a file sharing site like MediaFire to retrieve any critical documents that they may have backed up on Dropbox.

Another benefit to this integration is that users don’t necessarily need to store all of their data on both platforms. Users can choose whether to store their important pictures on Dropbox or in an Amazon S3 bucket, depending on which platform they feel gives them the most storage space for the least amount of money. Additionally, by integrating the two platforms, users do not have to worry about backing up their data twice in case something goes wrong with one of their cloud-based storage platforms.

A significant benefit of using Dropbox is that it is a free service. Customers can create an account and start using the program immediately without having to pay for storage space. However, if you want more space than what you get with the free service, you have to pay for the additional space. With Amazon S3, you pay for the amount of storage space that you use; therefore, the more data you store, the more money you spend. In addition, while Amazon does provide a basic account for free, it only gives you 5GB of storage space. Because Amazon S3 has greater storage space limits than Dropbox, users who have larger amounts of data might choose to store their data on Amazon S3 instead of Dropbox.

Another difference between Amazon S3 and Dropbox is that it is possible to have multiple accounts on Dropbox, but it is impossible to have multiple accounts on Amazon S3. If a user wants to store more than 5GB of data, they must create a different account for each additional 5GB. However, when comparing prices for additional storage space, Amazon S3 is significantly cheaper than Dropbox. For instance, if a user wanted to store 50TB on Dropbox, they would have to pay $2115 per month, whereas if they wanted to store 50TB on Amazon S3, they would only have to pay $50 per month for that amount (Amazon Web Services.However, there are some limitations to storing large amounts of data on Amazon S3. Large files cannot be uploaded directly to Amazon S3 and must first be uploaded to a computer before being transferred onto Amazon's servers. Additionally, if a user wants to get something from their Amazon S3 bucket, they must first download it onto their computer before being able to open it or share it with someone else.Dropbox has similar limitations to those of Amazon S3. For example, if a user wants to upload a large file on Dropbox they must first make sure that it is less than 100MB and then use something like CloudBerry Backup to transfer files over FTP. Additionally, if you want to get something from your Dropbox account, you will first have to download it onto your computer before being able to use it.Although there are many similarities between Amazon S3 and Dropbox, there are also many differences. One major difference between them is how they handle security and privacy of their users’ data. Both companies state that they encrypt data stored in their servers; however, it is impossible for customers to verify that this encryption actually occurs because both companies are closed source software companies. In fact, even the developers of these software programs do not know what encryption protocols are used by these companies to protect their users’ data from hackers and government agencies (Stuart. Another difference between them is that while users can log into their Amazon S3 accounts in order to view information about their accounts and make changes to them, there is no way for users to log into their Dropbox accounts without using another device such as a computer or phone (Kahle. Moreover, while Dropbox has been hacked before and was forced to delete user accounts as a result (Perez), there has never been any evidence of bugs or flaws in the security of Amazon S3.Additionally, while both companies provide private DNS addresses for their customers’ accounts in order to protect their privacy and anonymity (O'Brien), Amazon S3 has been shown to allow users to host their own servers within its storage space (Plachetka. This is particularly useful for people who want all of their valuable data stored within one place but still want an option for hosting websites that require a domain name in order for them to work properly (Stuart.As mentioned previously, both companies offer free versions which allow users to store small amounts of data on their servers; however, there are some differences between the two companies’ free versions as well. One major difference is that Amazon offers a 5GB free version but requires potential users to sign up for a credit card in order to obtain access (Amazon S3. On the other hand, Dropbox gives new users 2GB worth of space for free without requiring them to give out any personal information (Dropbox.Additionally, while both companies offer referral programs through which users earn extra space by referring other people (Weaver), Dropbox provides more incentive for people to refer others due to its system which allows users who refer a friend with a paid account to keep 50% of the money saved by that person (Dropbox. This means that users are much more likely to continue using Dropbox if they know they are going to get money back from other people signing up for accounts using their referral codes.Finally, both services allow people living outside the United States or Europe (where these companies are based. to host their servers under pseudonyms or falsified names in order to avoid paying taxes (Albanesius); however, Amazon will stop providing support if its users do this (Stuart. Also, while both companies store files in multiple locations around the world in order to prevent natural disasters from destroying all of their data at once (Tobolowsky), there have been instances where Internet access was cut off due to natural disasters at multiple locations simultaneously resulting in the loss of all stored data (Gibbs. Furthermore, while both companies claim that they could never be interested in selling customer information or sharing it with third parties for marketing purposes because it would put them out of business (Hess), there have been rumors circulating around that both Dropbox and Amazon have sold user information before in order for them to make more money off of advertising revenue (Perez.
