Business description: Dropbox is the easiest way to store and share files in the cloud, combining online sync, sharing and backup into a single interface that’s seamlessly integrated into your operating system. It’s the only truly cross-platform cloud storage solution, with support for Windows, Mac OS X and now Linux. Files in your Dropbox folder are continuously kept in sync between your computers and securely backed up online, eliminating the headaches associated with emailing yourself attachments or carrying USB drives. Folders in your Dropbox can also be shared with others, leading many businesses to abandon traditional network drives and VPNs and collaborate using Dropbox shared folders instead. Our beta users love that Dropbox just works and doesn’t make you think, and our March screencast ranks among the top links of the year on Digg (11,000+ diggs.) Dropbox is backed by Sequoia Capital and Y Combinator and was founded by a team of MIT engineers.
