AeroFS – A New Distributed File System

AeroFS is a new distributed file system (from their website):

Unlimited Storage

Using AeroFS, you can sync allthe data on your devices. No limits. No caps. You already have your storage, now use it!

Ultimate Privacy

AeroFS will never store your files in the cloud (unless you want to, of course ;-). Your files will only be shared with those who you invite.

Better Security

AeroFS encrypts your data end-to-end. This way, we are able to provide better security than most online storage services. Seriously.

  • Because AeroFS is completely distributed, even if we experience downtime,you won’t!
Sounds like an interesting solution. Especially since your data never leaves your country (unless you add foreign servers) and there are only very little cost for the company behind the service (you run all the involved servers).
With Dropbox and similar services, you can never be sure where your data ends up. They say it’s safe but that only holds true until a) the company goes bankrupt or b) some government agency knocks on their doors to hunt terrorists.
