A NAS migration can be quite challenging for large-scale efforts. Major concerns include minimizing any downtime to users and maximizing data transfer rates without adversely affecting network performance. It’s also vitally important to verify the accuracy of all the data after the migration. There are also many other tedious tasks, and some of those are […]
Key in reliably delivering software builds and artifacts is a solution that automatically overcomes all possible errors without human intervention. Most systems are prone to failure. You should be certain that your synchronization set-up for CI/CD is designed for high reliability.
Microsoft System Center Configuration Manager (SCCM) is commonly used to centrally manage large number of devices. You’re probably using it for security compliance, patching, and auditing of Windows machines. Frequently, updates need to be distributed to remote offices and remote devices, and that’s where Connects powerful distribution and synchronization capabilities can augment or replace SCCM’s […]
It doesn’t take reading through lengthy technical documents to understand why Docker’s flexible technology is creating buzz throughout the developer community. With Docker and an understanding of the word “container”, you can get a clear picture of how quickly applications can be built and deployed across several architectures with minimal effort. It only made sense […]
The Raspberry Pi has been one of our favorite gadgets around the BitTorrent office. We’ve even written a few posts about how users can use Sync with their Raspberry Pi. That’s why we were excited when we learned about a new product from WD Labs: the WD PiDrive Kit.
When the very first BitTorrent Sync (now Resilio Sync) mobile apps (on Android, iOS, Windows Phone and Kindle) were introduced, it let users access files directly from a desktop folder, without a roundtrip to the cloud. When we launched Sync 2.0, we took a step forward by allowing users to link their personal devices together, […]
The more you use Sync, the more folders you have in the main list, the more you interact with other users, and the more devices synchronize files. Until now, the more valuable information you have in Sync, the harder it often became to navigate. Recently, we implemented a search feature and some additional columns in […]
Back in the day, everything you put into Dropbox was synced to all of your computers. As more cloud storage solutions arrived, they behaved the same way. Users eventually demanded that some files sync but not others, and “selective sync” was born. You could simply choose which folders to sync and which ones to just leave […]
If someone shares a large folder with you, or there’s a folder you need on another computer, you may want access to it but don’t want to sync the entirety of its contents onto your device. When connecting to a folder, you are presented with a “Sync all” toggle, which allows you to choose if […]
Let’s say there’s a folder of files you’d like to access on your mobile device; maybe there’s something you need to review on the train ride home, or there’s a project file you’d like to show a client. Whatever the reason, the process of getting this set up can be challenging. Sync makes this very […]
Photos and videos take up a lot of space on our phones, especially with the resolution increasing with each new device that comes out. Typically when we think of backing up our files, it involves uploading them onto a cloud service.
When you create an account in the cloud, all your folders and files become instantly available across your personal devices; it’s quite convenient. Recently, we rolled out a new feature in Sync to make this available, in a fully private manner.
As an Art Director for BitTorrent, I look for tools that help remove any technical barriers to the creative process – for my team and me. As creatives, we have some particular needs, given our work involves things like having to manage huge file sizes and keeping special folders – such as fonts and icon […]
If you own a lightweight device like a MacBook Air or Ultrabook, you may be well aware that reducing physical size sometimes comes with a trade off for less digital storage. To offset this reduced capacity, you can use a NAS (short for Network Attached Storage) device on your network to bolster your capacity. These […]
The ease in which Sync transports files between multiple endpoints makes it a useful tool for software developers. In this post I’ll walk through how Sync can be used for deployment as well as mirroring Git repositories – then we’ll look at extending these use cases with the developer API.
Technology should never be an obstacle in the creative process. But when you’re dealing with large amounts of even larger files, it sometimes is. We built Sync for situations just like this.
