SyWiCo is a tool for managing concurrent modifications of shared files between unconnected computers. It can be used as a synchronization tool relying on email. Its main design goal was for synchronizing the source code by email between developers, when the use of a source control software is not possible. The communication is stateless and reduced to a very small number of messages, typically 2 or 4. It does not create any files in the directories that it synchronizes, and leaves one participant free from dealing with merging and conflict resolution. This is not a tool to replace source control programs, as it provides no versioning.
SmartBOX is an easy-to-install, easy-to-manage, resilient, and feature-rich network server with an emphasis on ease of use and data security and with minimal hardware requirements. The design of this system is entirely based upon research into the voluntary and community organization (VCO) sector by team members of the Illuminate ICT project.
Lanshark is a file sharing tool for local area networks. It allows you to share files with other users in the same network more efficiently. It automatically detects other lanshark users in the same network and lets you browse through their shares. It has a very fast search function that allows you to search through all the shares in the network in a few seconds.
Event Horizon (EVH) is a Web-based application which facilitates the secure transfer of files. Originally designed to replace FTP transfers, EVH currently allows uploads via HTTP and can also handle files uploaded via FTP. All file uploads are assigned an expiration period, after which the file is permanently removed from the system. This allows for automatic cleanup as well, keeping the underlying filesystem in tip-top shape.
GSTorrent is a Bittorrent client/server system. A daemon program handles all the file transfers as a Bittorrent client. The GSTorrent daemon also acts as a server for an external GUI client. The objective is to have a relatively small Bittorrent client, which runs on a small computer without a graphical interface and to control this server from a different machine. An example of this type of architecture is the mldonkey client/server system for the edonkey protocol.
Enterprise File Exchange (EFX) slots in where email file attachment size limits stop your users from sending files to another person. In the EFX system, the user visits the EFX site, uploads the file, enters the receiver's email address, and lets the system notify the receiver that there's a file waiting for them via a simple email message. The receiver then either simply clicks on the download link provided in the email message or visits the site to download it from there.
