BitTorrent has released a new Sync application that works exactly like Dropbox and Skydrive, except for the fact that there's no cloud involved, and no third-party has access to one's files.

Other advantages are that transfers are faster and there are no storage limits!

The Sync app is available for Windows, OSX and Linux. You will have to fill a small form to participate in the alpha testing.

If i am right, you will be providing the space, it's on your own pc's / devices.


But without cloud access, THERE IS NO CLOUD, is just filesync between pc's (or direct transfers thorugh peers)

The Windows version is only 500 KB in size and it sync your files through peer-to-peer (p2p) protocol. If your other PCs are on local network, it will use LAN for faster transfers.

Isn't it like syncing shared folders with Hamachi?
