BitTorrent Sync: Definitely worth a look
Cloud outages are annoying to those affected. But of course you have to ask the question, what are the advantages and disadvantages. The advantage is likely at the major services such as Google, Amazon, Microsoft and Dropbox are that they hold your data multiple times.

setup What’s in the cloud, is multiple secured on countless boards. Do you have at home for example your holiday photos on a single plate and smokes from this – it’s vinegar with these holiday memories. Or the computer is stolen, the shack burns down or anything. file

The chance that data be lost locally is likely to be greater than said cloud providers. Disadvantage: the service provider has problems, you may have problems getting to the data. And then, of course, is still the sword of Damocles called “chopped Account> data in the network” and “data espionage”. Not so easy and I think it should all appreciate.

Personally, I currently find the synchronization by BitTorrent Sync quite interesting because it offers over dropbox a decisive advantage in mobile apps: while Dropbox is not yet in a position to keep making complete folder available offline, so this is not the case with BitTorrent Sync Here I can both mobile iOS, as well as under Android define that files and folders are automatically made ​​available offline.

The decor of the whole is now done in a few moments and both Windows / Android / OS X / iOS almost identical. You just have to install software, set sync folder – which can also be network folder by the way – and mobile you simply scan the QR codes for the folder. And shared folders or some with read access? Also possible.
