"This solution is good at storing historical data and we were using it for other purposes."
"Enables content sharing by multiple users."
"Amazon S3 has multiple types of data detection. You can store data on a monthly basis, yearly basis, and long term basis."
"The most valuable features are unlimited storage, scalability, and performance."
"The initial setup is not difficult or overly complex. It's very straightforward and easy to implement."
"It is easy to manage and easy to understand."
"Some of the most valuable features are how convenient and easy to use S3 is. It's nicely integrated with AWS and is available on the AWS console."

"Nearline is highly stable."
"Google is always introducing new features and tends to have a new release every month."
"The security model can be improved as it is a bit confusing."
"Technical support could have a faster response time."

"It could maybe use more integration."
"When we need to find the queries there is no user interface, it is the only textual format that is bulky. If we need some data we will use Athena for queries and we will get results. When comparing this solution to others, such as DataDog, they provide a wonderful UI, and user-friendly dashboards, and many other features that this solution is lacking."
"The pricing and licensing are pretty complex."
"We need the mapping to Windows. That feature is needed in S3. That feature is in the Azure cloud where we can map it like a drive. We can map the cloud storage to the effort driving our Windows PC. But Amazon is not providing that feature for the S3 solution."
"The only pain point is migrating the life cycle policy because if someone is a newbie, they cannot easily create the life cycle policy."
"Nearline security could be better. The solution could integrate better with SEIM tools."
"The solution needs to offer better System Information and Event Management (SEIM). I'd like to discover how we could implement something like that within Google's cloud."
