BitTorrent Sync — peer to peer file sync

The curious thing about IT is how easy to envision things, yet how insanely long it takes for some of them to become real. The files are ancient, but it took decades for Dropbox (the golden end–user file sync standard) to appear.

I jury–rigged basic torrent–based file sync years ago, but it took plenty longer for complete solution to appear out of available building blocks. BitTorrent Sync uses torrent technology to sync files, which puts it in some ways ahead of established file sync solutions.
