  1. By Ernesto January 17, 2014 For many people BitTorrent is synonymous with piracy, but the popular file-sharing technology has much more to offer. Over the past year BitTorrent Inc. has intensified its efforts to help artists reach millions of new fans, and not without result. A bundle of tracks from Moby’s latest album Innocents, which can be downloaded for free and completely legally, is the most-shared torrent of 2013 with an impressive 8.9 million downloads. Earlier today we published a list of the top 20 most-pirated artists. With well over 5 million downloads this chart was topped by Bruno Mars. Interestingly enough, the honor of the most-downloaded artist on BitTorrent goes to a legal download. BitTorrent Inc., the company behind the immensely popular file-sharing client uTorrent, has just released an overview detailing the successes of its “bundles” program alongside a list of the most-downloaded legal content. The company regularly teams up with artists to release free content. One of the top stars last year was Moby, who shared several tracks from his 11th studio album ‘Innocents’ for free via the popular file-sharing platform. According to BitTorrent Inc., this bundle with free tracks was the most-shared torrent of 2013, with a staggering 8.9 million downloads. Not a big surprise, as more than 85,000 people are still actively sharing the tracks at the time of writing. The second most-shared bundle is the Epic Meal Time video bundle with 8.6 million downloads, followed by Kaskade’s tracks with 4.1 million downloads. The secret behind BitTorrent’s bundle program is that the torrents are included with every download of the uTorrent and BitTorrent mainline applications. Since these clients are installed by dozens of millions of people, the numbers add up quickly. “164,383 BitTorrent Bundles are downloaded around the world, every day. These projects have been downloaded 60 million times, by fans in over 170 countries around the world,” BitTorrent Inc. notes. Bragging rights aside, the downloads also bring value to the artists in question. They are able to reach millions of new fans which may eventually boosts concert visits and sales. Moby, for example, managed to add 419,000 people to his email list via the bundle. In addition, 130,000 people clicked through to the iTunes store while 68,000 new remixes of his tracks were created. That can be considered quite a success. The top 20 most-downloaded bundles are listed below. More stats and background information on the program is available in the 2013 BitTorrent report. http://torrentfreak.com/and-the-most-downloaded-torrent-of-2013-is-completely-legal-140116
  2. Youd think that wed have already had all the possible file sharing use-cases covered when thinking about the different file sharing, backup and synchronization products I need to juggle a multitude of vendors and products in my head Dropbox, SugarSync, EMC Syncplicity, Box, Citrix ShareFile, Microsoft SkyDrive, Google Drive, Egnyte, Oxygen Cloud and on, and on and on. One would be forgiven for thinking that every conceivable niche would be covered. But apparently not, or at least thats what Intralinks is hoping the NYSE listed company is focused on inter-enterprise content management and collaboration solutions and boasts of 2.7M individual users and 99% of the Fortune 1000 using their product of course thats an easy claim to make and hard to disprove but lets move on to the latest announcement from the company. Intralinks is releasing its VIA Enterprise product, a solution that it claims goes beyond traditional file sync and share and supports the complete lifecycle management for the extended enterprise. Which sounds very much like marketing mumbo-jumbo. Even worse is a direct quote from the press release which promises that: Intralinks VIA is a secure and scalable enterprise collaboration solution that helps organizations take lifetime control of their most important information and frees employees to reach new levels of productivity" Essentially VIA takes the sync and share paradigm we know and love, and gives it enterprise-grade security. Over the top of that they morph a content-management paradigm and offer the ability to create specific content repositories (Intralinks Exchanges) which integrate with parallel content repositories on Microsoft MSFT +1.44% SharePoint. Essentially youve got sync and share tied to the document management solution and with a dose of enterprise audit and control on top of it. Or, in other words, youve pretty much got what most other vendors promise to deliver. However, not wanting to dismiss the offering, and having had a good conversation with the company previously, I wanted to dig in to a customer story from Intralinks to get an idea of whether there is real value there or simply a me too offering. I was pointed in the direction of Essex (the company, not the place) a 60-something year old supplier to aerospace, defense and emergency services. The company seems a perfect candidate for distributed file sharing 375 employees spread across four distinct manufacturing plants along with regular interactions with other manufacturers and with their many customers means that file sharing is a daily problem for the company. Previously the company had been utilizing an in-house FTP site, along with some rogue use of Dropbox. Network manager Donna Wurth wasnt happy with this scenario pointing to the strict requirements their defense customers have in terms of file expiration dates and geographical restrictions on storage. The company has to regularly share very large and sensitive files with external contactsengineering drawings, sales documents, marketing materials, and even purchase orders. They also didnt want to bear the overhead of maintaining their clunky old FTP system they needed a simple, secure and scalable solution. Essex provided me with a list of reasons for why they chose Intralinks over their incumbent solutions. The reasons are obvious access, the ability to outsource the provision of the solution, cross-platform support, security and guaranteed US-located data storage. Those are all valid reasons but theyre also requirements that would have been met by dozens of other vendors Box, Huddle, ShareFile and many others can pull similar case-studies out of the hat. And therein lies the problem file sync and share is definitely not a zero-sum game, but at the same time is there really an opportunity for quite so many vendors in the space? I tend to think not and cant help but predict consolidation and rationalization in the industry. http://www.forbes.com/sites/benkepes/2014/01/10/the-world-needs-another-file-sharing-offering-intralinks-steps-up-to-the-plate/
  3. Continuing a long-standing New Years tradition, today we present an up-to-date list of the worlds most-visited BitTorrent sites. At the start of 2014 The Pirate Bay continues to pull in the most visitors, followed by KickassTorrents and Torrentz. Household name isoHunt.com disappears after settling with the MPAA, but its replacement isoHunt.to is one of this years newcomers. With 2013 now behind us, which torrent sites are pulling in the most visitors at the start of 2014? Traditionally, BitTorrent users are very loyal, which is reflected in the top 10 where most sites have had a consistent listing for more than half a decade. But in common with every year, 2014 sees a few movers and shakers, as well as several newcomers. The top three slots remain intact compared to last year, with The Pirate Bay in the lead despite several domain name changes. The most notable absentee this year is isoHunt. The site has been featured in the top 10 since 2006, but went offline in 2013 after it settled its legal dispute with the MPAA for $110 million. Last years newcomer H33t also fell out of the top 10 after it lost its domain name. The site relaunched after two months downtime at H33t.to but has lost most of its traffic. The first newcomer in the top 10 this year is YIFY-Torrents, which is also one of the youngest torrent sites after being founded in 2011. The site has grown tremendously over recent months, and by focusing on popular movie releases YIFY has evolved into Hollywoods new nemesis. Isohunt clone/replacement isoHunt.to is the second newcomer, which is quite an achievement since the site only launched two months ago. RARBG is the last new name, the site has been around for many years but is listed in the top 10 for the first time. Below is the full list of the top 10 most-visited torrent sites at the start of the new year. Only public and English language content sites are included. The list is based on various traffic reports and we display the Alexa and U.S. Compete rank for each. In addition, we include last years ranking for each of the 10 sites. Did we miss anything? Feel free to join the discussion below. 1. The Pirate Bay To many people The Pirate Bay is synonymous with BitTorrent. The site was founded more than a decade ago and is still expanding, despite various legal troubles, domain hops and ISP blockades. The Pirate Bay currently has well over a billion page views a month. Alexa Rank: 79 (est) / Compete Rank: NA / Last year #1 2. KickassTorrents KickassTorrents was founded in 2009 and has quickly moved up in our top 10, settling into 2nd position this year. Responding to a looming domain seizure the site moved from its kat.ph domain to Kickass.to last August. Despite domain troubles and blockades by Internet providers in the UK and Italy, the site continues to grow. Alexa Rank: 103 / Compete Rank: 452 / Last year #2 3. Torrentz Torrentz has been the leading BitTorrent meta-search engine for many years. Unlike the other sites featured in the list Torrentz does not host any torrent files, it merely redirects visitors to other places on the web. The site uses several domain names with .eu being the most popular. Alexa Rank: 153 / Compete Rank: 1.377 / Last year #3 4. ExtraTorrent ExtraTorrent continues to gain more traffic and has moved up again in the top 10, now placed as the 4th most-visited torrent site. This success didnt go unnoticed by rightsholders groups such as the MPAA who recently called out ExtraTorrent as one of the top pirate sites. The site was forced to trade in its .com domain for .cc this year, after it was suspended by its domain registrar. Alexa Rank: 363 / Compete Rank: 2,286 / Last year #5 5. YIFY-Torrents Roughly three years ago nobody had ever heard of YIFY but today the movie release group is one of the most recognizable movie piracy brands on the Internet. This reputation resulted in a court-ordered ISP blockade in the UK last year. Alexa Rank: 809 / Compete Rank: 6,245 / Last year #NA 6. EZTV Unlike the other sites in the top 10, TV-torrent distribution group EZTV is a niche site specializing in TV content only. Because of its focus, EZTVs traffic varies in line with the TV seasons. Alexa Rank: 1,050 / Compete Rank: 10,790 / Last year #7 7. 1337x 1337x focuses more on the community aspect than some competitors. The sites owners say they launched 1337x to fill an apparent void where it seemed there was a lack of quality conscience ad free torrent sites with public trackers. In common with most other sites in the top 10, 1337x.org is currently blocked by the larger UK Internet providers. Alexa Rank: 1,382 / Compete Rank: 11,445 / Last year #6 8. isoHunt.to Isohunt.to was launched last October, less than two weeks after isoHunt.com shut down. The site is not affiliated with the old isoHunt crew but copied the sites design. This has not been without success, as the site now has millions of pageviews a day. Alexa Rank: 1,550 / Compete Rank: NA / Last year #NA 9. BitSnoop BitSnoop is one of the largest BitTorrent indexes, claiming to index a massive 21,437,061 torrent files at the time of writing. The sites torrents list continues to grow steadily, as do the number of DMCA notices that it receives. Alexa Rank: 1,714 / Compete Rank: 5,633 / Last year #8 10. RARBG RARBG, which started out as a Bulgarian tracker several years ago, is the third newcomer in the top 10. Together with isoHunt.to it is the only website in the list that hasnt been blocked in the UK, which may in part explain its popularity. Alexa Rank: 1,867 / Compete Rank: 13,238 / Last year #NA Disclaimer: Yes, we know that Alexa isnt perfect and that Compete has plenty of flaws, but combined both do a pretty good job at comparing sites that operate in a similar niche. The Alexa rank for The Pirate Bay is estimated based on the ranking of the .sx domain and isoHunts Alexa ranking is based on the past month only. http://torrentfreak.com/top-10-popular-torrent-sites-2014-140104 Also see c.f: Top 10 2013 Torrent Sites: http://torrentfreak.com/top-10-most-popular-torrent-sites-of-2013-130106 1.

  4. By Martin Brinkmann on January 30, 2014 Sharing data is often not as easy as it sounds. While it is usually not a problem to make available smaller data sets to a group of people or the public, it quickly becomes an issue if the sets grow in size. If you need to make available a 9 Gigabyte archive for example, many of the traditional file sharing options become automatically unavailable to you. You cannot use email or the majority of file synchronization services for example, and while you could set up a file server, it requires more work than you may want to invest, considering that you not only have to set up the server, but also maintain it and make sure it is secure. Academic Torrents is an attempt to make academic datasets and papers available via BitTorrent. When you open the site you are greeted with a short introduction of what the site is, and what it has to offer. Here is a short introductory video that explains what Academic Torrents is. The three core features of Academic Torrents are: Provides an index of scientific data. Uses a redundant and high speed network. Offers reproducibility and open access. You can use the search form at the top to find information by name, author or dataset, or use the browse feature instead to browse the datasets, papers or collections directly.

    Looking For Reliable Torrent Uploader

Seeking for similar application.
  6. By Jacob Kastrenakes on February 15, 2014 06:34 pm You'll soon be able to stream live video with your smartphone using a type of BitTorrent. Last year, BitTorrent Live was launched as a way to broadcast and stream live video for free. Instead of relying on a single company's servers to record a video and send it back out to viewers, BitTorrent Live is peer-to-peer: it has a broadcaster send their video to a handful of viewers who then watch the video while sending it out to even more viewers to do the same thing. It's only been on the desktop for now, but BitTorrent says that a mobile app is in the works for later this year — though it doesn't say what platforms it might debut on or whether the app will allow for just broadcasting, just viewing, or both. The app will be released in alpha BitTorrent Live itself still remains in beta, though BitTorrent says that it's matured over the past year. The app too will launch in an unfinished state — an alpha, BitTorrent says — though presumably the lack of polish will be in the developing protocol and not the app itself. When we initially tried it last year, the protocol's reliance on a distributed network remained problematic: when there weren't enough viewers, videos would start slowly or wouldn't play at all. At the moment, it appears to have worked past some of those kinks and is performing much better, at least on officially featured streams. For individual, small-scale broadcasters, there may be no immediate benefit to using BitTorrent over one of the many companies that offer live broadcasting for free. But for broadcasters that want an inexpensive way to stream a lot of content — and to make money off while doing it — BitTorrent seems to be hoping that Live will be a compelling option. For one, streaming content in bulk can be done for free, but perhaps more importantly, after an early demo in February 2012, Bram Cohen told TechCrunch that BitTorrent Live would make it relatively inexpensive to begin showing ads on a stream — a feat BitTorrent can handle thanks to Live's peer-to-peer nature lending to low overhead. If you're curious how well the protocol works, you can head over to BitTorrent Live's website where a number of streams are currently broadcasting. http://www.theverge.com/2014/2/15/5414430/bittorrent-live-mobile-app-launching-2014
  7. By Thorin Klosowski Today 8:00 AM AEST Dear Lifehacker, I keep hearing people talk about BitTorrent Sync, but I’m not sure why I should care about it. Isn’t it just another file-syncing service? Why would I use it instead of something like Dropbox? Sincerely, Split Torrent Dear ST, You’re right, the usefulness of BitTorrent Sync isn’t immediately evident. While it might look like a Dropbox replacement on the surface, that’s not exactly how it works. So, let’s talk about what it is and how it works before we go on to some of the uses for it. What BitTorrent Sync Does (and Doesn’t) Do At a glance, BitTorrent Sync looks a lot like Dropbox, but that’s not exactly the case. It is a file-syncing service where you can sync files and directories across computers, but you don’t have access to those files online like you do with Dropbox… and in some cases, that’s a good thing. BitTorrent Sync uses peer-to-peer file sharing to synchronise your files between computers. When you point the BitTorrent Sync app at a directory on your computer, you share those files with any other computer that you give a secret passcode to. The data only lives on your computer and the computers you share it with (or mobile phones sync). It’s never uploaded to a third-party server like other file-syncing programs. Since you data is never uploaded to a server, your storage capacity is only limited to your own hard drive, and no one else has access to your files. The downside to BitTorrent Sync is that your home computer must be on at all times if you want access to files. This is great as a security measure because your private data is never on a server, but it does make accessing files a bit of a pain. Likewise, sharing is a bit more complicated with BitTorrent Sync than it is with most file syncing services. If you want to share files with other people, they’ll need BitTorrent Sync software installed as well as a secret code you generate and send to them. When You’d Want to Use BitTorrent Sync BitTorrent Sync isn’t quite as easy to use as something like Dropbox for everyday file backups, but it’s still a solid option for file syncing. Most importantly, BitTorrent Sync is one of the most secure ways to sync files because your data never goes to a server. That means that nobody can peek in on your private files. As Wired recently pointed out, this is a key feature:For the past 15 years, our software and data have steadily moved into the cloud, bringing massive gains in convenience. The cloud makes it easier not only to share data, among other things. But in some ways, it has also eroded our privacy. The NSA, it seems, has been tapping major cloud services in order to spy on users, and the revelations highlighted the dangers of using a file-sharing service like Dropbox. Indeed, some of the leaked NSA documents indicated that Dropbox had been specifically targeted. But in a departure from Dropbox, Sync doesn’t store data in one central repository that can be tapped by the NSA and others. It connects machines via peer-to-peer networking, meaning they can sync without storing data on any server. That means an interloper can’t access data without tapping each individual machine. Besides the security, BitTorrent Sync is also great because it isn’t limited by space — you don’t need to worry about cloud storage limits, since the only limits are your own hard drives (which are likely much bigger than Dropbox’s 2GB of space, or even Box’s 50GB of space). In addition, it’s also one of the best ways to share a massive amount of files with someone. Since BitTorrent Sync is free it’s easy to share project files with coworkers, large videos with friends, or any other massive folder you need to share. As long as they also have BitTorrent Sync, of course. For example, if you’re working on a movie with a partner, you probably have a folder with a couple hundred GB of video in it. With Dropbox, this would be expensive to store and share with your partner, but BitTorrent Sync keeps your computers in sync with each for free. Any time you need to send a massive file to someone, BitTorrent Sync will prove helpful. Other Uses For BitTorrent Sync Of course, like other file sharing services, BitTorrent sync can go beyond just syncing files. Most of our top 10 uses for Dropbox also apply to BitTorrent sync, and there are al of other BitTorrent Sync-specific projects you can do too: ◾ Make your own Dropbox clone with a Raspberry Pi and BitTorrent Sync ◾ Set up BitTorrent Sync on Your FreeNAS box (if you need help setting up FreeNAS our guide should get you there) ◾ Use BitTorrent Sync to access your music from anywhere ◾ Use Git with BitTorrent Sync ◾ Generate easily shareable links to files with BitBox ◾ Create a Private Dropbox-style server BitTorrent Sync is still in beta, but it’s worth downloading and messing around with if you’re ever sharing large files or you’re just worried about security. If nothing else, it’s useful at least a few times a year when you need to share massive amounts of data with someone. Cheers, Lifehacker http://www.lifehacker.com.au/2014/02/should-i-use-bittorrent-sync-instead-of-dropbox
  8. Currently making 205.68GB of research data available. Sharing data is hard. Emails have size limits, and setting up servers is too much work. We've designed a distributed system for sharing enormous datasets - for researchers, by researchers. The result is a scalable, secure, and fault-tolerant repository for data, with blazing fast download speeds. Contact us at [email protected] Browse Data Base Browse Papers Browse Collections Reproducibility Making datasets available is necessary for reproducible research. But getting and sharing data can be slow and difficult, especially for large datasets. Academic torrents solves the problems of both sharing and downloading data by providing a distributed repository for datasets which is fast, scalable, and easy to use. Library design in the digital age A robust distributed replication design allows libraries to utilize this system as their backbone. Providing fault tolerant hosting of curated data for a university, research lab, or home library. When libraries have data on-site, bandwidth and time are saved. Also, this system can be used as the foundation of a new open-access publishing system where libraries manage data instead of licenses for external data sources. We are a distributed data repository The academic torrents network is built for researchers, by researchers. Its distributed peer-to-peer library system automatically replicates your datasets on many servers, so you don't have to worry about managing your own servers or file availability. Everyone who has data becomes a mirror for those data so the system is fault-tolerant. What it means for you? The academic torrents system offers blazing fast download speeds and a site for searching available datasets from various sources. For sharing, distributing datasets on the network means no more setting up file servers, less bandwidth usage, and maximum uptime Source
