Overall Satisfaction with Dropbox for Business

Dropbox is used to store files across our organization. Most employees use Dropbox to store all work-related files and share files across team members and different groups. We utilize Dropbox rather than paying and maintaining servers to store all of our corporate data either on-site or at a data center. It allows for easy file sharing and backing up data.

  • File sharing across team members
  • Backing up files
  • Security of files
  • Easy to use desktop interface
  • Allows multiple people to edit files at the same time which can lead to duplicate files
  • Software crashes from time to time causing files to not be synced
  • Eliminates need for data center/data storage costs.
  • Files are accessible from anywhere with an internet connection.
  • Files can be synced with a computer and worked on offline.
Dropbox is a great cloud based file storage and sharing system. It allows to easy creation of folders and sharing of folders between teams. Since it is cloud based, files can be accessed from anywhere with an internet connection. This is ideal for a remote workforce and people on the go. It is less appropriate for files that are regularly worked on concurrently by multiple people. It lacks default ability to lock a file (as a traditional corporate network would) when somebody opens it.

Dropbox for Business Reliability

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.
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.
