Cloud storage provider, Dropbox has officially launched an Australian based hosting environment within the Amazon Web Services (AWS) Sydney Region.

The local launch resulted from local customer feedback, further nudging the continued growth and expansion the storage platform provider is experiencing in the market.

Dropbox A/NZ country manager, Dean Swan said it had been testing the environment with a number of customers in the past few months.

“We look forward to servicing the data sovereignty needs of our customers in Australia and New Zealand,” Swan said.

Recently, Dropbox announced a major update to its core software, pulling together a variety of work-related tools in one spot, in an effort to offer higher-profit services beyond raw storage space.

The new ‘workspace’ allows users to create and share documents from Microsoft's Office suite and Google Docs from the main Dropbox window, as well as start conversations in services like Slack Technologies Inc or Zoom Video Communications.
