The core team of Syncany is on hiatus for an indefinite amount of time. Feel free to do with the code what the license allows and encourages, but please don't expect any maintenance. The team thanks everyone who has contributed to Syncany in one way or another.
Syncany is an open-source cloud storage and filesharing application. It allows users to backup and share certain folders of their workstations using any kind of storage, e.g. FTP, SFTP, WebDAV, Amazon S3 and Samba.
While the basic idea is similar to Dropbox, Syncany is open-source and additionally provides data encryption and more flexibility in terms of storage type and provider:
- Data encryption: Syncany encrypts the files locally, so that any online storage can be used even for sensitive data.
- Any storage: Syncany uses a plug-in based storage system. It can be used with any type of remote storage.
