Avatron’s Everydisk Promises File Sharing without the Cloud

Send Article to a Friend

Concerned about security and privacy when using cloud services? A new Kickstarter project from Avatron Software (a TidBITS sponsor) could help you come back to earth. Based on the company’s Air Connect system for securely establishing direct connections between machines anywhere on the Internet, Everydisk aims to give you access to all your files, on all your machines, wherever you are, without ever storing them in a cloud-based service. The Kickstarter project runs through 25 January 2014 — as little as $20 will get you a year subscription to Everydisk if the project funds, and, as always with Kickstarter, you pay nothing if the project doesn’t fund.favicon follow link
