Advice on email and filesharing from USA to Shanghai
Posted on 2013-06-25
I have a client based in the USA but has a small office in Shanghai. There are two related issues going on that I need some advice from someone with experience in the USA and Asian markets. I don't know exactly what speed Internet connection they have in the Shanghai office and I don't know anything about the Internet infrastructure in Shanghai.
1. We have an Exchange 2010 server in the US. We have connected Shanghai people with Outlook Anywhere. Sending emails often take a very long time to send - 10 to 15 minutes. These emails supposedly have no attachments and thus are not very large. I do not believe that Outlook 2010 is showing Disconnected from the server.
2. They have been using Dropbox consumer for transferring files, but have speed issues, and have had an issue with a critical file that disappeared from Dropbox. Is there a business class file sharing service that has reasonable prices, but also has the data synced from US based data centers to an Asian datacenter. This should allow for quicker file sharing.
Thanks for help and for sharing any experiences in this area.
