Everydisk Brings Post-Cloud Storage to Everyman

Five-year-old bootstrapped startup Avatron Software is today launching a Kickstarter project to help develop its new software platform, Everydisk. Everydisk will let people easily access and interact with all their files, on any of their computers, from anywhere in the world. Everydisk is an alternative to costly and high profile cloud storage solutions that may be targets of hackers, spies, and others seeking access to our personal demographic data.

Whereas cloud solutions like Dropbox and Google Drive offer storage space on servers governed by arcane and compromising user agreements, Everydisk establishes direct, secure connections between a user’s devices and the increasingly affordable desktop hard drives attached to them.

How Everydisk works: 
Avatron’s web-based server platform maintains a registry of each user’s computers. When a user logs in, they are presented with a menu of their connected devices. Once the connection is made between the user and their remote computers, no data goes through Avatron’s server. User data always stays on machines directly in the user’s control.
