Dropbox Announces “Dropbox Infinite”

May 16th, 2016 | Posted by | Filed under Indianapolis IT support

Dropbox is taking the problem of limited storage space out of the equation with its newly unveiled project called “Dropbox Infinite” for its Dropbox Business users. While ideally the member of a team would want to have a copy of any file they might need, laptops have a limited amount of space. This means turning to a web browser or other system to access a cloud every time they need to look at one of those files.

With Dropbox Infinite, it doesn’t matter how much space a user has. All the files in the company’s drop box will be available to view in the desktop interface. Local files will still contain a green checkmark next to them, while the rest will have a cloud icon next to them. Cloud files will contain file size and creation information available to view before a user can decide to download a local copy for offline use.

Genevieve Sheehan covers these details in a recent Dropbox blog post, describing it as a way “to reimagine how people find, access, and collaborate with large amounts of data”. A demo video shows that Project Infinite is cross-platform and therefore works on both Windows and Mac operating systems, and is backwards-compatible for computers still running Windows 7 or 8.

Sheehan reveals that select sponsors are currently using Project Infinite, and that more updates will be available as they continue to fine-tune the project. A release date has not been announced. Dropbox also hasn’t revealed if the product will ever be available to other account types.

As a small business grows, so does the amount of files and data they need to store. This is inherently a good thing as it means progress, but can lead to stumbling blocks with limited storage. Hopefully products like “Dropbox Infinite” will ease the continued innovation of small businesses.
