Our new synchronization server

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.

    • Seafile is an opensource software, so you can set up your own server. This is exactly what we did, so we don’t have such space/bandwidth limitations. Wuala is not an opensource, so you can’t do such things with them. ^__^
