Unboxing Petabytes of storage.

Our first shipment of 10 TB helium enterprise SAS drives has just arrived, and we’re beyond ecstatic! These drives deliver a massive storage density upgrade, and reduced overall energy consumption, compared to our current fleet of 4 and 6 TB drives. Thanks @Seagate!

Growing fast

Here at Sync we continue to invest heavily in server-side infrastructure to meet demand. With over 350,000 users uploading millions of encrypted files to our servers every single day, these new high capacity drives are a real game changer in terms of our ability to scale.

Your data is safe with Sync

  • Data is stored on RAID storage arrays, utilizing enterprise SAS drives
  • Data is replicated across multiple datacenter locations (with automated failover)
  • Data is always encrypted in the cloud

Did I mention many, many boxes?



We’re moving to 10 TB drives, and the first (of many) multi-petabyte shipments arrived today. These drives will deliver increased reliability and performance for all Sync users, and help us scale, as we continue to experience rapid growth.
