03 JulContinuing with our theme, Google Drive contains fewer advanced features than Microsoft’s products. However, most people would not need those features. Sharepoint exemplifies this scenario perfectly.
This review will differ from Part 1 and Part 2, for a couple reasons:
- Cloud storage comes with more security concerns than the other products we have discussed. We cover that.
- These product’s respective histories help us understand their functions, so we explore their origins briefly.
TL;DR G Drive is a personal file storage and sharing tool that’s been adding more enterprise features like Team Drive. Sharepoint is a much more complex tool built for organizations that can require a lot of management. G Drive currently has little in common with Sharepoint; instead, Google’s features completely overlap with OneDrive for Business.
Bonus helpful comparison table: See this nice table from UW-Madison that puts features side-by-side. Despite what UW’s table implies, Google Drive is HIPAA compliant.
