Dropbox

File Sync, Share and Backup
Share |
since 2008 in USA
Dropbox has a cross-platform client (Linux for x86 and x86_64, Mac, Windows, and the iPhone) that enables users to drop any file into a Dropbox folder that is then synced to the web and the user's other computers with the Dropbox client. Files in the Dropbox folder may then be shared with other Dropbox users or accessed from the web. Users may also upload files manually through a web browser.

While Dropbox functions as a storage service, its focus is on synchronization and sharing. It supports revision history, so files deleted from the Dropbox folder may be recovered from any of the synced computers. Dropbox's version control also helps users know the history of a file they may be currently working on, enabling more than one person to edit and re-post files without complications of losing its previous form. The version history is limited to 30 days. A paid option for unlimited version history called "Pack-Rat" is available. The version history is paired with the use of delta encoding technology. Files are split into chunks, the chunks are hashed and only those chunks that have never been uploaded before by any user are transmitted again. This makes uploading popular files very efficient and helps if only small portions of a large file has changed. There is no limit to file size for files added via the Dropbox application, but files transferred through the web interface are capped at 350 MB. Dropbox uses Amazon's S3 storage system to store the files and SoftLayer Technologies for their backend infrastructure.
