BitTorrent has opened up its new Dropbox-like Sync service to all, following a “pre-Alpha” test launched earlier in the year. Described by the company as “the awesome power of P2P, applied to file-syncing”, Sync enables its users to store an unlimited number of files in the cloud, while sharing files and folders with other people. “With Sync, file transfers are encrypted. Your information is never stored on a server in the cloud; your data is protected by encrypted keys. Your files belong to you, and stay on the devices of your choice,” explains BitTorrent. “BitTorrent Sync is specifically designed to handle large files, so you can sync original, high quality, uncompressed files.” It’s like Mega without the hot-air boasting, and thus possibly more disruptive. BitTorrent says that the pre-Alpha test saw 20k people using Sync to store more than 200TB of data.
