Favorite software for moving data hoards via the interweb?

This page summarizes the projects mentioned and recommended in the original post on reddit.com/r/DataHoarder

Our great sponsors
  • Scout APM - Less time debugging, more time building
  • SonarQube - Static code analysis for 29 languages.
  • talent.io - Download talent.io’s Tech Salary Report
  • syncthing-android

    Wrapper of syncthing for Android.

    Syncthing has the same feature set as Bittorrent Sync did, but that's a pretty lousy choice when you want to move data one time in one direction (those applications are designed for continuous synchronization, often between all connected devices).

  • tubearchivist

    Your self hosted YouTube media server

    The filestore option makes added files not duplicate space in the cache, which is the default. So, I was able to share my 700GB TubeArchivist hoard without worrying about using extra space.

  • Scout APM

    Less time debugging, more time building. Scout APM allows you to find and fix performance issues with no hassle. Now with error monitoring and external services monitoring, Scout is a developer's best friend when it comes to application development.

  • kubo

    IPFS implementation in Go

    It doesn't really "sync," but potentially a command could be scheduled to get a similar effect. Would probably want to key an eye on the cache of the clients and garbage collect occasionally. I run Linux on everything, so I can mount it to my filesystem, then copy or read them from there.

  • ipfs

    Peer-to-peer hypermedia protocol

    I've mostly been using IPFS for that. The windows support isn't amazing and missing some features that I like if you're in windows. Not sure if it's any faster in comparison to bit torrent sync.
