Dropbox Launches Cloud Storage Trend Setting Project Infinite

Project Infinite is newest offer of the cloud storage company that will change the way user access, find and collaborate with the large data by providing local access to all files from anywhere they want.

Project  At the Dropbox Open London, Dropbox has announced the launch of Project Infinite, a new offer, the company state that it will meet expectations on how people discover, contact, and collaborates with large amounts of data.

“With Project Infinite, we’re addressing a major issue our users have asked us to solve,” said Genevieve Sheehan, Product Manager at Dropbox. “The amount of information being created and shared has exploded, but most people still work on devices with limited storage capacity.”

With the Infinite Drive, you have visibility transversely to the whole system, but the files will placed in the cloud as chosen by a cloud icon next to the file, or on your hard drive with a cloud backup as selected with a green check mark. This allows users to manage cloud files as still they are local, without taking up room on your drive and that’s an enormous difference.

“Project Infinite will enable users to seamlessly and securely access all their Dropbox files from the desktop, regardless of how much space they have available on their hard drives. Everything in the company’s Dropbox that you’re given access to, whether it’s stored locally or in the cloud, will show up in Dropbox on your desktop. If it’s synced locally, you’ll see the familiar green check mark, while everything else will have a new cloud icon.”

The company also stated that it has been growing in Europe, which is also shoring up by the appointment of a new European Vice President, Philip Lacor, who joins from Vodafone in Germany. The company now declares to have more than 500 million registered users, as well being used in 52% of companies in the Fortune 500, 33% of companies in the FTSE 100, and 29% of companies in the Global 2000.

Project Infinite is not actually infinite, but it does offer a flawless layer between the physical drive and the cloud storage with Dropbox.
