Dropbox introduces Project Infinite.
Dropbox is one of the best online storage solutions available. And the convenience of accessing your files from anywhere, anytime made me ditch the growing amount of USB drives I have in my bag.
Project Infinite is one of the new features that Dropbox is currently working on. With mostly enterprise customers in mind, this will let them store terabytes of data on Dropbox where your team can access them anytime.
This means that you can have access to a huge infinite number of files from your computer without having to sync or save all of them, which saves you a ton of hard drive space. You can still choose to save some files locally, but this is one of the few features that should greatly benefit businesses.
Here are some of the features as detailed by the Dropbox team:
Visibility in context. Every file you’ve been given access to—even ones that aren’t stored locally—will appear in Windows File Explorer and Mac OS X Finder. You can quickly drill down through folders to find what you need, without the lag of a network drive or the inconvenience of a web app. Plus, you can view key info like file size, and creation and modification dates through your desktop file system, no downloading required.
Real-time access. Files and folders stored in the cloud can be organized with familiar drag-and-drop simplicity, right from the desktop. And when you need to open something from the cloud, just double-click it like any other file. Dropbox will automatically sync and open the file for you.
Universal compatibility. For IT teams, Project Infinite works the way your teams work, supporting cross-platform access and backwards-compatibility on any computer running Windows 7 or higher, or Mac OS X 10.9 and up. IT teams can bring the power of Project Infinite to the systems they manage and you can share and collaborate with ease.
