Syncthing: Open source P2P file sync


We all know bittorrent Syncopen in new window and I talked about this method to have the files on hand.

Syncthing becomes the solution to these open source systems such as centralized storage like Dropbox...

With Syncthing you have a way to store your data and have it available whenever you want and wherever you wan, using the P2P protocol.

Some of its features are:

  • synchronize as many folders as you need with different people

  • responsive web GUI;

  • cross-platform: Syncthing works on Linux, Mac OS X, Windows, FreeBSD and Solaris. There's also an unofficial Android port;

  • Syncthing doesn't require advanced configuration and it should work out of the box, both over LAN and over the Internet;

  • secure & private: the data is only stored on your computers, without using a central server; all communication is secured using TLS;

  • every node is identified by a strong cryptographic certificate and only nodes you have explicitly allowed can connect to your cluster;

  • open source app, open protocol.
