re: If Bono Loves Dropbox, Shouldn't You?
Chris, I enjoyed the article and the term "BYOC". All the vendors you mention above deliver mobile access to files via "cloud storage," which in their parlance means "hosted storage services run by them." We think that uploading files to a third party is an unnecessary tradeoff, particularly when businesses often have their own storage infrastructure. As Jerry Johnson indicates above, our customers have told us that they want the "mindless simplicity" of Dropbox, the deployment speed of SaaS, all with the control of private storage infrastructure. We think it's possible to deliver this type of service, without the compromises, so customers can finally "find what they're looking for."
I hope to see more articles from you and Informationweek on this subject, and the real options that CIOs and businesses have today. Thanks!
