Unlike cloud synchronization tools for Dropbox, Syncthing transfer files directly between other computers on which you installed Syncthing, and this gives us the following advantages: your files are not stored on any cloud-based servers, the speed of transfer does not depend on third-party servers, and there are no restrictions on the free space (of course, obviously, the only limit is the available space on the computer hard drives).
*you can sync as many folders as you need, with different people
*responsive web interface
*Syncthing not require any deep settings and should work initially, and through a local network and through the Internet
*security and privacy: data is stored on your computer without using a Central server, all communications are secured using TLS, each computer is identified strong cryptographic certificate and only the selected computers can connect to your cluster
*open the application and the Protocol on which it runs
Note that Syncthing is in a state of constant development, and are often added new/improved features. For example, the current release includes a simple system file versions, but will be added in the future a more advanced system of work with the various revisions of files.
