We are launching new service for private and secure sharing files. It works like any cloud storage, i.e. Dropbox, SkyDrive, SugarSync and many others, with one crucial difference: NO CLOUD.
It means user shares files or folders directly from own storage and invites specific people like friends or co-workers to access shared files. What it means:
- No limits.
It's your storage, so share terabytes of data if you want!
- No uploads.
Friends can download directly from your computer/storage, so they do not have to wait until you upload those big files to the cloud, so they can get link and download then. They will just see new files you've shared with them, and can start download immediately.
- Total privacy and security.
It's just you and your Friend, whom you invited to shared folder, nobody else. So share whatever you want, you do not have to explain what it is to nobody. No risk of files get public by accident or security breach. We all know it takes seconds to publish something, it takes forever to get it down, if this is even possible. And all cloud services do check uploaded files for security and copyright reasons.
- Smart Sync and download
Shared files are available, but do not automatically download and clutter your drive with irrelevant files, you can choose ones you want from list made available to you.
- Web and mobile access & control
It's your local storage, but you will have the same convenience and control via mobile apps, just like std cloud storage. You can see your remote files and ones shared with you, can sent and accept invitations, order remote sync or download.
- Ease of use
Sharing will be very simple, right-click on file/folder, select invitees.. done.
Idea for use: anything what is too big or too sensitive for email can be shared via sher.ly instead upload to 3-rd party servers. Share ALL your home photos and videos with your Family and Friends, no need to surrender all your digital life to Facebook, Google, Dropbox or any other service, which does not care about you and your data. You can easily integrate sher.ly with your Dropbox, SkyDrive or any other cloud service.
Target audience is all active Internet users, particularly cloud storage users. We also target business, which from security reasons can not use external cloud storage - now it is not a problem anymore.
We are looking for very simple, iconic logo, serious yet friendly and easy. Something related to sync, download, share, social, simple, easy, freedom.
