Earlier this month, I reported that Dropbox was adding their own point of presence (PoP) in Sydney to speed up local services. This followed similar moves in other territories. The PoP isn't a local storage facility but a proxy that is used to speed up sync performance back to the servers in US, which is where almost all Dropbox's storage capacity is located - there's also storage in Germany to satisfy EU data sovereignty requirements. But, it seems Dropbox's ambitions are much grander, as they are building their own private network to service customers.
