Today, we’re launching local hosting environments for Dropbox Business users in Australia/New Zealand, and Japan through our long-time cloud provider AWS. After rigorously testing the environment with a number of beta customers, we’re thrilled to be able to make this available earlier than expected. This announcement was made onstage by Dropbox global executives at the Dropbox Connect event in Sydney, where business leaders from around Australia gathered to discuss trends in digital and workplace transformation.
This follows our announcement in March, highlighting the company’s commitment to supporting the needs of more than 400,000 business teams globally, especially as we grow in the Asia Pacific and Japan (APJ) region.
“Today, we’re making good on one of our customers’ most consistent requests—to access and store their Dropbox files securely in Australia,” said Dean Swan, Country Manager, Dropbox Australia and New Zealand.
“APJ is one of our top performing markets in terms of revenue, and one of the fastest growing. We will continue to make the right investments to meet the needs of our customers in the region,” said Koki Igarashi, Country Manager, Dropbox Japan, and Head of APJ.
Our customers are using Dropbox to change the way their teams work and we’re pleased that our investment in local infrastructure can help drive their goals even further.
