History and Features of Dropbox

  1. Cloud Computing
  2. • Dropbox is cloud storage service that enables users to store files on remote cloud servers and the ability to share files within a synchronized format. • Dropbox provides an online storage solution powered by cloud computing service model of infrastructure as a service (IaaS). Dropbox users are provided by an online storage space hosted on Dropbox accessible anywhere via the Internet. The storage space provides storage for virtually any kind of fie type from documents, images, videos etc.
  3. • Dropbox founder Drew Houston conceived the Dropbox concept after repeatedly forgetting his USB flash drive while he was a student at MIT. In a 2009 "Meet the Team" post on the Dropbox blog, he wrote that existing services at the time "suffered problems with Internet latency, large files, bugs, or just made me think too much." He began making something for his personal use, but then realized that it could benefit others with the same problems.
  4. Selective Sync •With a generous storage allocation of 1TB for Dropbox for Business users, some of you might wonder why a selective sync functionality would be useful.
  5. Improved Collaboration •Sharing couldn’t be simpler in Dropbox for Business. Users can invite people to shared folders via a new sharing button in the web-based application or from the desktop application.
  6. Microsoft Integration •If you choose to sync up Dropbox and Office, you’ll be able to open Office files within Dropbox on your mobile device and, with a tap of the “edit” button, modify the file. The updates will automatically sync with Dropbox.
  7. Offline File Access •To access files within Dropbox on your mobile device without a cellular or wifi connection, simply mark them as a “favorite.” Bonus: Dropbox will regularly sync any edits made offline across your account.
