How ByteSync leverages the Cloud & rsync to synchronize with speed and ease

About ByteSync

We are currently finalizing the development of ByteSync, our remote data backup and synchronization solution. Secure, powerful, light, easy to deploy, it will easily find its place in the palette of tools available to IT technicians.
ByteSync is unique in that it relies on the cloud and rsync technology to bring ease of use and efficiency to users: it brings rsync through the Internet.
The software will be publicly available in 2022 in both free and paid versions.

Before we begin, let’s make one important point clear right away: ByteSync is not a cloud data backup solution. ByteSync uses the Cloud to connect client software via the Internet and allow them to synchronize remote data.
In other words, if you need to back up data between two computers located on different networks, you can do it with ByteSync, but if you want to back up data to a Cloud (Google Drive, OneDrive, DropBox, etc.), then you will have to use another software.

ByteSync is broadly comparable to remote file backup solutions that use protocols such as FTP or SFTP. It can complement or replace them.
It can be used to quickly check the integrity of one or more backup copies and excels at resynchronizing large data sets between remote computers and networks. A special feature is that it can associate 2 to 5 participants in the same synchronization session.

Following the opening of the website, dedicated to the ByteSync solution, this post has been moved. Find its full content on
