GigaTribe Launches Web 2.0 File Sharing Service in the U.S.

GigaTribe members share files for free in an easy-to-use peer to peer environment

GigaTribe has launched GigaTribe in the U.S. market. A free software community, GigaTribe lets you share entire file folders of photos, videos, music, and other files with your "tribe" of friends, family, and coworkers in a private, encrypted peer to peer environment.

Sharing large files or sensitive documents with friends, clients, and coworkers shouldn't be as hard or as expensive as it is with other services, which can charge up to thousands of dollars a year. GigaTribe is entirely free, with the option of a GigaTribe "Ultimate" upgrade with more advanced features (such as faster downloads), priced at only $29.95/year. In addition, GigaTribe does not require any extra steps to share a file. Once you select which folders you want to share with your groups, those folders are instantly accessible to your friends. You can add new files to those folders or change those files at any time. There is no need for any additional steps, no uploading, no size limitations, and no security threat.

Share Large Folders of Video & Photos with Your ‘Tribe' - No Resizing Needed

With the growing amount of photos, videos, music, and data files collected on our hard drives from consumer electronics gadgets, such as digital cameras, iPods, and cellphones, sharing these files with friends and coworkers can be extremely difficult to manage, especially when you are adding new files to your folders or frequently updating files; have large video or other files; or don't want to spend time selecting which files to send to which person in your group from a party or special event.

GigaTribe instantly provides access to those files as soon as you change them on your computer. Photos and videos remain in their original full size, and resolution is never lowered for posting. In addition, with GigaTribe's instant messaging feature, you can also chat with your friends to tell them about your new updates or other projects.

Encrypted & Private

GigaTribe is encrypted and private. It lets you share entire file folders -- no matter how large they are - with ONLY your selected group of users. You simply invite your friends to join your private network. When they join, you select which group they belong to and which files they will be able to see and download.

"Security is our top priority. When it comes to sharing your personal photos and videos, you need to be absolutely sure they will only be available to the appropriate contacts. GigaTribe provides users with this assurance that their private information will always remain protected," said Alexis Leseigneur, CTO, GigaTribe.

Business Application: Set up an Instant Virtual Private Network Small Business Network for Free

In addition to sharing your photo, video, and other files with friends and family from parties or special events, small businesses can also use the free GigaTribe to set up an instant Virtual Private Network to quickly share file folders with co-workers. Set-up is easy, with no hardware, technical knowledge or network administrator required.

GigaTribe "Ultimate" Upgrade - Access Your Computer Anywhere You Go

GigaTribe also offers a more advanced "Ultimate" version, which provides faster downloads and allows you to access your computer's hard drive anywhere you go through the Internet by logging onto www.gigatribe.com/private with you user name and password. This is a service that typically costs hundreds of dollars a year through other vendors -- with GigaTribe pricing is only $29.95/year. Other features offered by GigaTribe "Ultimate" include the ability to download multiple files simultaneously and unlimited tech support by email.

Machine learning has taken residence at our cities' cores and now we can finally have "smart cities." Cities are a collection of buildings made to provide the structure and safety necessary for people to function, create and survive. Buildings are a pool of ever-changing performance data from large automated systems such as heating and cooling to the people that live and work within them. Through machine learning, buildings can optimize performance, reduce costs, and improve occupant comfort by ...

Poor data quality and analytics drive down business value. In fact, Gartner estimated that the average financial impact of poor data quality on organizations is $9.7 million per year. But bad data is much more than a cost center. By eroding trust in information, analytics and the business decisions based on these, it is a serious impediment to digital transformation.
