Dropbox Business

Dropbox for Business is fantastically well-suited as a file sharing and collaboration tool, as a file management and backup tool, and as a platform for creating direct access to files on multiple devices and operating systems. It is less so for a public file directory, or other means that would require file access by users who are not defined as other users or team members.

  • Alerting you as to when files are updated

Cons

  • I am not a big fan of attempting to switch users to paid plans. Their initiatives to do that are very intrusive.
  • You have to manage the upload speed so it doesn't burn out the modem.
  • Occasionally, there are technical glitches that need to be addressed.

System is very easy to use as files sync to users computers - looks just like browsing through Windows.

Dropbox is very easy and fun to use. It is very self evident and from a graphical user interface it is very intuitive. There is really nothing else to say about it.

Reliability and Availability

Based on 1 answer
At least once a week the app crashes on my computer and causes files to stop syncing. It is an easy fix to re-open the app, however I have to notice the app stopped working to realize it needs to be reopened.

Syncing to the cloud is almost instantaneous. Users on the same network can see my changes within seconds on their computer.

Implementation

Dropbox Business10.0
Based on 2 answers
The implementation was actually very simple. Again, as stated previously, the most intriguing part of the entire exercise was the implementation of the directory structure for each account. Once you design and implement it for one, it becomes quite simple to replicate for each account you implement thereafter. You just really need to take time to ensure you implement the first perfectly and those that follow on will be likewise work efficiently and easily.

Alternatives Considered

Dropbox Business for me worked much better and was a better choice for our organization. Not everyone uses android or has a gmail account, so Dropbox Business provided more flexibility in that regard, and is easier to use for us

Scalability

Based on 1 answer
The only limit to scaling Dropbox is pricing. After a certain point, using traditional data storage would be more cost effective than per user pricing.

Return on Investment

  • Gives a sense of security to have all files in one place and easy to access
  • Can be hard when all users do not use it... some employees keep folders on their desktops... always working to do training and re-education
  • While it's easy to use, if someone does not download the app or use it regularly it can be frustrating
