Dropbox Business

Well suited for any size team, but does have more of it limits. I'd recommend exploring all the various cloud based storage systems to know where your needs are the strongest. For us, we're a relatively small team, not technology focused, so the simplicity and strength of Dropbox was just what we needed. I think if you're a leading organization in the tech space, this might not make the most sense.

Pros

  • Syncs quickly
  • Can handle sizable files
  • Affordable

Cons

  • Sometimes someone uploads a massive amount of data to a folder you sync, and therefore it attempts to sync to your devices...potentially filling up your entire free space. It would be great of there was a warning if suddenly there was a data sync of more than 1GB to give you some sort of option not to sync.

Dropbox is very expensive and its price is not as competitive as it was. We are looking for an alternative that will enable as to subscribe more users at a more affordable cost.Also, we did not like Dropbox customer service, and felt that they should have found a way to compensate us for some of the damage they were responsible for when restoring our data.

Usability

Based on 4 answers
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

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.

Support

Dropbox Business4.7
Based on 4 answers
One of our employees accidentally deleted large portion of our database. I've reached out for help as the admin site did not manage to restore the content (it requested I contact support). It took Dropbox about 2 month to handle the problem, and eventually we got a very huge mess. Some of the files were never restored, and we lost money and reputation. Dropbox, on their part, did not do but the bare minimum to help us with this, nor they took responsibility for their inability to supply us with the backup and restore features they were committed to.

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 seemed to stack up better against Box and seems to have less bugs and crashes. I would definitely recommend Dropbox Business over Box and other competitors.

Scalability

Dropbox Business7.0
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

  • Definitely a positive impact overall on our business to help us scale
  • Ability to easily create docs and folders to share widely
  • Negative impact in terms of staying organized and keeping the docs data clean and concise
