Got Storage That Doesn’t Sync?

Added on by odrive.

Sync all your storage (even Amazon Drive) with odrive

Have you ever wished that you could have a sync experience like Dropbox or Google Drive against your storage that doesn’t support it? With the odrive universal sync app, you can.

Syncify Cloud Storage

Aside from being a better, unifying sync app to all of your Dropbox, Google Drive, Box, OneDrive, and OneDrive for Business accounts, odrive can help you sync any cloud storage that lacks real-time, Finder/Explorer integrated sync capabilities, including:

  • Amazon Drive ($59/yr for unlimited storage!)
  • 4shared
  • ADrive
  • HiDrive
  • OpenDrive
  • Yandex Disk

You can think of odrive as offering Dropbox-style sync to everything (except that we also offer additional capabilities through our sync app that Dropbox does not… and, for anyone that is concerned about that kind of thing, we also take less of an aggressive approach with our client than Dropbox does). Not all sync apps are created equal, so pick what works best for your needs.

Syncify Application Files

Don’t forget about sync access to your files on different online apps and services, too:

 But sorry, we only help locate attachments. Deletion is up to you.

Syncify Infrastructure Storage Buckets

You can even get sync to your object storage buckets on the providers below. There are different storage classes and pricing tiers (e.g. Amazon’s Standard, Infrequent Access, and Reduced Redundancy Storage… or Google’s Multi-Regional, Regional, Nearline, and Coldline offerings), so you can customize your solution based upon your performance needs and budget.

  • Amazon S3
  • Google Cloud Storage
  • B2 Cloud Storage

These object storage services are fairly straightforward for a technically minded person to set up, but the real beauty of using the odrive sync app is that it actually lets your ordinary users consume this storage easily, too, via a simple and familiar sync interface.

Syncify Servers and Other Online Services

Finally, we support connecting to your servers and any services you use which allow you to connect via:

  • WebDAV
  • FTP/FTPS
  • SFTP
 FTP has been around forever, and what has it done? We’re going to fix The Cyber, believe me.

You’ll find that many servers and existing services may support one of these protocols (or can be made to do so). We want odrive to be able to sync any file repository in the future. It’s our vision.

Syncify It All Better

You don’t just get normal sync access, either. We’re the cutting-edge expert on sync, so we give you extended capabilities that the original sync clients don’t provide, including placeholder sync (the ability to save disk space by unsyncing a file — replacing it with a placeholder file that doesn’t take up any disk space), zero knowledge encryption, a single place to manage sharing, and more.

 Placeholder files (shown on left) don’t take up any space until you double-click on them to download them, turning them into a real file again (shown on right).

Some people just prefer odrive sync, anyway, including folks that already use odrive for their personal stuff who would rather keep using odrive for their Box or OneDrive for Business accounts, too. Or those who prefer our placeholder sync to the less convenient selective sync offerings of Dropbox or Google Drive.
