Dropbox has grown incredibly fast over the last 5 years, but businesses are realising that they need a solution that scales affordably, whilst provide flexibility and speed for local and remote users.  A Dropbox alternative is needed that is cost effective and removes syncing and permissions issues that becoming increasingly problematic as the number of users and uses increase with Dropbox.

With team members across multiple locations and disciplines, including engineering, security, marketing and graphic design, Extreme Networks struggled with file storage and access.  We needed one central repository that was fast, accessible by all members and secure.  We wanted to make it as easy as possible for the team to share documents across multiple locations as we as find the document that they needed as quickly as possible.
