A Great Cloud Space that gets Better all the Time

We are always looking for the optimal cloud drive for storage. We use it for work to pass large (well every file really) files back and forth and send print files out to clients and printers. We have tried all the usual suspects and they all lack something. Our favorite was copy.com before it's demise. pCloud is a relative new comer and fills the gap left by copy.com fantastically. Not to mention the constant tweaking and upgrading that has been going on for the past couple years. The platform is very solid and after two years using it it has only gotten better and better. They have recently added a public folder so you can link to images for web work as well. The starting free tier offers generous space and most everything is included. They periodically have a sale on Lifetime licensing which bumps your storage to 500gb or 2 Tb. They have an add on for encryption and more. It lacks a little in integration - playing catch-up with Dropbox - but makes up for that minor shortfall with a rock solid system that has done everything we needed and is constantly doing more than we thought we needed it to.

Pros

- Public Folder
- Easy Drag and Drop Uploading through Web portal
- Optional URL Shortened Links
- Upload Links
- Shareable Folders / Upload Folders
- Integration for Backups / Synced desktop folders / Photo backups from Phone
- Iphone App is well integrated and now includes previews for most file types
- Optional encryption ( I have not used it but it is a pro that it exists)
- Useage reports
- Seemlessly works for OSX Windows, iPhone and Android - pass files about with ease.

Cons

- Can't share links from "shared folder" only from your own folders (safety deems this a good concept - but it was a plus for copy.com when it was around)
- Web interface is still a hierarchy tree and not drag and drop
- If you don't have expiring links active it is a bit of a muddle to delete old links
- Desktop app / disk disappears on occasion - there was a recent Windows Update and pCloud update so things may have cleared up.

Software Asset Management and Compliance Single Source of Truth

I use Flexera currently and also at my previous employer. There is no better way to get ahead of the compliance curve to view your software landscape. This software pays for itself in soft and hard savings. The ability to go from big picture to individual compliance is quick and easy. The ARL is the "secret sauce". The ARL provides that security of no matter what the software companies do with their license models Flexera will keep you up to date with those changes, and in some cases tell you how to manage your landscape better

Pros

The updated ARL providing comfort with the changing licensing landscape.
