Diode Drive Introduction

Diode Drive is a privacy-focused alternative to Google Drive and Dropbox. It is a new take on file sharing, collaboration, and backup. It combines all of the security and privacy of local files, with the convenience of cloud-based storage.

Unlike other solutions on the market, there are zero centralized technology pieces and zero managed servers in the middle. This ensures total privacy (even from IT admins!), enables compliance with regional/regulated requirements, and reduces the attack vectors on your information.

Beta Status:

Diode Drive is currently in a Public Release Beta stage - the Beta can be downloaded from our website.

Anyone can download and use Diode Drive during the Beta, but should expect to see frequent feature additions and changes to the application.

The Diode Drive Beta will end sometime in Q3 2021. During the Beta, participants get full access to all features in Diode Drive, and are encouraged to send feedback via email to support@diode.io or via our telegram channel.

Nuts and Bolts:

The main Diode Drive application runs as a tray icon in MacOS, Windows, and Linux (x86 and ARM) and keeps selected "drives" (folders) synchronized with other peers who have been invited to collaborate.

Anyone running Diode Drive can also quickly share a link to a file with anyone without having to upload the file or email the file. One or more of the peers can run as a backup or as a high-performance/high-availability peer to ensure all invited peers or file subscribers have continuity of access.

All communication between peers is end to end encrypted, so the Diode Network and other Internet infrastructure never has access to any activity details or content.
