BitTorrent partners with Onehub to offer enterprise file-sharing service

BitTorrent, a peer-to-peer networking company, is partnering with an online file storage and sharing company Onehub to bring integrated offering for large enterprises. BitTorrent's Sync file-sharing service allows businesses as well as individuals to sync files across their devices and share with others.

Onehub Sync integrates BitTorrent Sync into Onehub’s solution stack. By leveraging the BitTorrent Sync API and adding the Sync engine to their clients, Onehub offers a hybrid, “peer-to-peer+one” approach.

"It combines the benefits of syncing directly between peers, with Onehub being a persistent peer that is always available in the cloud. This provides the scalability and consistency required by the enterprise," Erik Pounds from BitTorrent said in a blog post.

"Sync is ideal for organisations with hundreds of people, or individual workgroups," Pounds said while announcing the news. "Onehub offers online file storage and sharing for companies of all sizes, and delivers the business requirements needed from enterprise customers; be it more granular permission settings or certain activity tracking features."

When file changes are made, Onehub Sync immediately updates all of your collaborators. It will choose the fastest route (whether that is directly through a local network or via the cloud) and since only new changes are synced as opposed to entire files, syncing time has decreased substantially, BitTorrent said.

When users open Onehub Sync, it automatically begins updating files with the latest version from their collaborators. Since all collaborators are kept current, they will always have multiple sources to access the latest files from. The Onehub peer ensures users always have a peer to receive the latest updates.

Onehub provides bank-level encryption for all your data and file transmission between peers is always encrypted. In addition, it also provides activity tracking to monitor who has accessed files, as well as role-based permissions to control who can access your data.

OneHub Sync is available on free trial. After the 14 day trial, users can sign up for either $29.95 per month tier with 1TB of storage, or $99 a month for unlimited storage.
