Despite stiff competition from major players like Google and Apple, Dropbox remains one of the most popular (and innovative) cloud storage systems out there.
With ever-increasing features for brands, today we’re gazing upwards to see what’s happening at Dropbox.
Dropbox was founded in 2007 by MIT students Drew Houston and Arash Ferdowski.
Houston apparently came up with the idea after repeatedly losing his USB flash drive around campus.
Up in the cloud
Today Dropbox has 400 million users – around the same number as Instagram.
Every hour 100,000 new files and links are created on Dropbox, while over a typical day 1.2 billion files are uploaded to the service.
