BitTorrent SoShare service. 1TB transfers for FREE!

From: »www.afterdawn.com/news/article.c···FaceBook

quote:
BitTorrent Inc. has released their new file sharing service SoShare in beta.
What makes SoShare different from rivals is the fact that users can send extremely large files for free, without having to use multiple links or multiple data transfers.

Using the BitTorrent browser plug-in, users can send files up to 1TB large in a single data transfer.

Making the transfer even easier, is the fact that recipients will not even need a registered account to accept files.

All files remain active for 30 days, or less time if you choose so.

I wish they had longer file retention

It's a bittorrent client attached to your browser. Downloaders must install the SoShare client and serve bits to peers during and after their download. And p2p transfers cannot begin until after uploader completes a copy to the SoShare servers.

Not useful for me. I'm not going to require recipients of my data to install proprietary app and connect to it's servers. It's unnecessary software and too spyish. Seems useful for work groups collaborating on a massive file set (that they don't mind SoShare having a copy of).

I think the new mega site would be more ideal for that since everything is encrypted and the data rates are far more reliable. Chances are that if you are dealing with data sets that large, 20 a month with mega is chump change.

I was thinking of a nightly build or collaborative film editing sort of exchange where ongoing change proposals to some files within a large set of files could be made to update in a syncing sort of way: rehash the 800GB collection and bittorrent would update only those that have been altered since last hash-check. In a globally distributed group it could hugely reduce data transfers.

Not an ideal way to go about it but for low cash and/or low bandwidth groups it would be a good workaround. Using conventional hosting (eg: mega) means re-downloading everything by everybody every time.
