Dropbox has long been one of the most popular cloud storage services, prompting numerous competing products since it launched in 2007 – and the service has now hit a major milestone. According to Dropbox CEO Drew Houston (via TheNextWeb), there are now over one billion files uploaded to Dropbox’s servers every single day. That’s a staggering mountain of uploads.
The news was revealed at the Mobile World Congress trade show today in Barcelona, and sets a high bar for the service’s competitors. Those 1 billion uploads come from a base of over 100 million users logging onto the service, and over 500 million connected devices – and according to Houston, that’s just the beginning. The company expects an additional 150 million devices to log onto the service through the remainder of 2013.
That’s an impressive milestone – and a strong vote of confidence toward the potential of startup companies. Congrats, Dropbox – let’s hope there’s a lot more growth in your future! Dropbox is available for all popular mobile platforms, as well as both Windows and OS X. For more information, or to sign up for the free service, check out the Dropbox website.
