Pros: Morro Data is very simple to navigate and figure out how to transfer files with drag uploading, as well as downloading.

Cons: The sorting functionality is poor. The files do not appear to sort alphabetically. I can find what I am looking for, but at times takes time. It freezes up from time to time.

Pros: Easy to learn, intuitive interface. Makes access to company files possible for those of us who work remotely.

Cons: Being limited to uploading / downloading one file at a time. Makes my work more time consuming.
Having a severely restricted viewing pane with no options on how folders are displayed. I would like the option to view folders by name only ('list' option in File Explorer) so I can see more of them on the screen at one time.

Overall: Ability to work remotely.

Good product for keeping large amounts of data in the cloud and still having files on-site for use

Pros: Easy to setup
When 2 of the servers are paired together, it replicates easily
Allows for AD Authentication on folders (this is a must in our environment), if you don't have an AD environment it allows for its own permissions on folders
Users don't notice a difference when accessing files, some large files can take a while if they need to be fetched

Cons: After initial setup we couldn't increase the drive size, we ended up having to re-setup the NAS to increase the drive size
Not being able to stop jobs from happening when there is a long que

Overall: It allowed us to go from using a massive server to store all of our data, to a simple Hyper-V environment that allowed us to minimize our HDD storage. Instead of having to store all of our files on our servers here, we are able to make the NAS big enough to store what we need and some extra, while being able to keep the data that we don't use very often in cloud, but still accessible for when we do need it. There are a few things that can be worked on to make it even better, but this software is a great addition to any company that may have storage need limitations or if they need to keep files synced between multiple sites. We also have a second site which needed to be kept up to date with all of the files and this software made it easy because you put it in at 1 site and it will replicate over to the other site as well.

Great value solution for cloud services. Functionality lacking and syncing issues often frustrating

Pros: Value. UI. Presentation. Value for services is great. However, value does come with some limitations. User interface is extremely friendly and able to be customized to look as close to the office's network drives as possible.

Cons: File Syncing Issues. Download/Upload times. With an organization having multiple users across the country and multiple offices, file syncing issues become quickly apparent. You will have to learn new self internal management processes to overcome loss of data procedures.

Very easy to use and simple installation.

Pros: - Simply Drag and Drop
- If you have multiple locations the files will sync across all the location and they can be accessed any time incredibly quickly.

Cons: - Setting up the box seems a bit complicated.
- There is a mild learning curve to understanding the process.

Overall: Sharing files with multiple locations/office spaces seems so easy and efficient.

Pros: Mainly the ease of use. Once the files are synced to the cloud, they are readily available for access from anywhere if there is an internet connection and a computer.

Cons: When the device is connected to a local network for longer periods of time, sometimes the devices becomes inaccessible from local network. Might be due to ip address conflicts that occur overtime.

Overall: Files are secure and synced to a cloud where they are easily accessed from anywhere in the globe. Device performance is also considerably good.

Thanks for the review and feedback. Assume a reboot of router (or switch with DHCP service) solved the IP address conflicts... Regards, Team Morro Data

A fairly quick learning process. Wonderful feeling having your data backed up so easily.

Pros: Customer support is fast. Thorough and prompt response either via mail or phone. The service is friendly and knowledgeable .

Cons: Just typical learning curve for a new product. I guess it is one of the drawbacks to early adoption. Nonetheless it's growth and growth potential is invaluable.

Pros: Easy to use and fast. Users don't need to worry about conflicts and file locking... it works similar to our server file share. It syncs between three sites without having to worry about it and it lets us work collaboratively. There's a cloud backup (actually, the master copy) that maintains versioning so we can always rollback to a version if someone accidentally deleted or overwrote a file.

Cons: Minor issues - compatibility with our workflow - but they are working hard at fixing them! AutoCAD sheet set manager issues have been fixed now. Our engineering software being unable to save a file has also been fixed. We are testing Revit worksharing and working to get that workflow resolved.

Overall: It helps us keep a single set of data files across different offices and allows us to keep file locking abilities while working collaboratively.
