Last month we have made one more important step regarding our infrastructure – our file synchronization system was migrated from proprietary Dropbox to open-source solution!
We have spent a significant time testing several options available for the synchronization purposes. In fact, this process took much more than one month.
And our choice is – Seafile.
Why? We are absolutely flattered by its concept and especially appreciate the following features:
- Very effective upload algorithm. Files are divided into blocks of 1MB, this mechanism makes it possible to deduplicate data between different versions of frequently updated files, improving storage efficiency.
- It is possible to resume upload/download for a single file.
- The client can connect to multiple accounts, on different servers.
Below you can see some screenshots form the web interface.
You can find more about Seafile on its official homepage.
