Anyone jumped into Cloud Computing like Dropbox for Business? I am curious how it works, and does it work with Cabnetware job sharing, etc. I have concerns, obviously, about being hooked to the cloud, and what if the net goes down, or security breach, etc. I would appreciate hearing from someone who has made the jump into it, and how is it going, what are the drawbacks and benefits?
Drop box is safe and we use it often, GC's send large pdf files and a lot of our 3d .stl files are too large for regular email.
works great base use is free
Dropbox is a central part of our business. Almost everything is on DB. Effortless file sharing for Cabnetware, Cabinetvision, you name it. The security concerns are legitimate, but they would not be in business if they didn't have top level security.
We are delighted and on our 2nd year with our corporate dropbox account. Would never put stuff there that would break us to have it get out, nor any other cloud based and it is all here on our server as well plus offsite backup. Nothing better than keeping all the team on the same page seamlessly and light years ahead of the old sneakernet.
Dropbox is file sharing, you can move your whole server to the could if you have a high speed backbone.
You can rent space on a server on a private backbone that is secure and host your business in the cloud if you have high enough bandwidth at the office and elsewhere, then your whole server is in the cloud. The issue for a lot of us with shops in the sticks is getting high speed internet at a reasonable cost.
I had a demo server on a tier 1 backbone at IWF, you can use any RDC client. We virtualized a desktop client on the same server and connected to that client so we could use any device to run windows apps.
The issue here is how many times our internet service goes down, Only one provider locally. They don't much care.
