It’s one of best value options on the market when it comes to online storage solutions, which is probably why it’s so popular. It does have its limitations though, which is why we think Google Drive integrated with Digital Pigeon could be a great option.
Google Drive has a lot of strengths and some great features, such as the collaborative Google Docs, Google Sheets and other ‘office’ type files. But it does tend to fall short when it comes to file sharing.
If all you’re transferring are documents or smaller image files then it’s perfectly adequate. However, it doesn’t handle large file transfers of media files. If you’re a creative professional, you generally need to transfer large files to your clients regularly. If you have to juggle tight deadlines as well, as most creatives do, Google Drive alone may not be enough.
If it’s a large file transfer service you’re looking for, then Digital Pigeon has got you covered. We specialise in the high-speed transfer of large files such as photographs, video, audio and other media. We use the incredibly powerful Amazon Web Services, which has servers placed at strategic locations all around the globe to get your files from point A to point B using the fastest and most direct route possible.
