A few weeks back, Dropbox announced a new business service for teams. Now that solution is here.

Aptly named Dropbox for Teams, the solution expands upon the cloud storage space (and there's definitely an abundance of that with subscriptions for this plan) with business-friendly amenities like administrative controls, centralized billing with bank grade encryption, dedicated phone support, and unlimited version history for all files.

Just with any Dropbox account, users can use this platform to share docs, slides, and large files with colleagues and clients. Dropbox can also be set up to work online or offline from any smartphone, computer, or tablet.

The real kicker here is the amount of storage space one gets when signing up for Teams. Dropbox for Teams starts at $795 annually for five users, with additional seats available for $125 each. That base plan includes 1,000GB of storage, and each additional seat comes with 200GB.

For those who do sign up for Dropbox for Teams, the cloud storage provider promises an easy setup that should be done within minutes.

    Jesus and why should I pay $700 when skydrive is free. Can't think of something that dropbox can do better, in fact I found dropbox somewhat limited.

      @panoslondon1 You're not the target market for the "Teams" plan. This is targeted at businesses. It gives the team 1000 GB, or about a terabyte. That's a LOT of space for a file sharing service.

      As far as Dropbox is concerned, I'm on the 50 GB plan, and I'm using it on my iPhone as well as my computers.

  • Sky drive doesn't offer more than 25 gb

    A non starter for me.

  • Better might be ...

    I've been trying the free version of symform (suggested by Robin Harris) ...

    ... so far so good. This is 100Gb 'free' and $30 per year per user for UNLIMITED storage.

    In my opinion this is the sort of cloud architecture and value that customers want, as opposed to the wrapping up of expensive enterprise storage in a vendor datacentre.

    Somebody tell Rachel that 1000GB = 1TB, which until the floods could be owned for about $50 ;-)

      From SymForm's website "to qualify for a free online backup account you must contribute unused cheap local storage equal to the amount of data you would like to protect redundantly in the cloud."

      If I read that correctly you are participating in a pier to pier storage network, so you are not only making HD space available you are contributing some of your bandwidth.

      Additionally if you have concerns with your data "on the cloud" this is downright scary. Your data could be anywhere, not in a controlled environment. Yes it is shredded/encrypted etc., but still....
