Dropbox and Salesforce Form Strategic Partnership

On March 9, 2018 Dropbox and Salesforce announced a strategic partnership to connect Salesforce’s #1 CRM platform with Dropbox’s leading collaboration platform, enabling companies of all types and sizes to collaborate and more deeply connect with their customers across sales, service, marketing, commerce, and more. The companies will initially deliver two new integrations to drive brand engagement and boost team productivity: Commerce Cloud and Marketing Cloud + Dropbox: Create branded, customized Dropbox folders within Salesforce Commerce Cloud and Marketing Cloud with the new digital asset engagement solution. Folders can be accessed by both internal teams and external partners. With two-way workflows, content stays relevant and up-to-date, whether the user is working in Dropbox or Salesforce. For example, a retailer using Salesforce Commerce Cloud may create a Dropbox folder to access product images or creative briefs from an external creative agency. The retailer is notified if the agency makes changes or additions and can then update their online storefront in order to deliver a superior shopping experience. Quip + Dropbox: Access Dropbox content, such as photos, videos and slides, directly within Salesforce Quip. Dropbox will also add support for Quip documents, allowing joint users to work on Quip files that live in Dropbox, furthering Dropbox’s effort to build a unified home for work. In addition to these new integrations, Salesforce will use Dropbox Enterprise and Dropbox will significantly extend its use of Salesforce products including Salesforce Service Cloud, Marketing Cloud and PRM across its business. New integrations are expected to begin rolling out the second half of 2018. Pricing will be announced at general availability.

Dropbox Expands Global Private Network to Improve Performance for Users

Dropbox announced plans to continue expanding its global private network by offering its global collaboration platform on the Equinix Cloud Exchange Fabric™, and by launching six new points of presence across North America and Europe that will improve performance and reliability for users globally. The new points-of-presence are expected to go online in Atlanta, Denver, Berlin and Toronto in the first half of 2018, followed by Stockholm and Oslo in the second half of the year. By the end of 2018, Dropbox expects to have an infrastructure footprint that spans 29 facilities in 12 countries on four continents including North America, Europe, Asia and Australia. By establishing network infrastructure in regions where Dropbox is seeing increased adoption, the company can carry its traffic using dedicated bandwidth. Each accelerator is based within co-location facilities that also house infrastructure from other ISPs; many of which connect directly into the Dropbox network through a process called peering. Peering allows Dropbox customers to avoid sending their traffic over the open internet, where it could travel through a web of different ISPs before finally reaching the Dropbox data centers. The greater number of ISPs the traffic travels through, the greater the risk of increasing latency, which can lower reliability and also negatively impact performance. By peering with Dropbox, customers gain access to fast, reliable bandwidth owned by Dropbox and dedicated exclusively to their use; ultimately improving their performance and reliability. Dropbox offers peering for free and currently has thousands of peering partners around the world.
