I use BitTorrent Sync for deployment of applications and content (I hear
some big companies also do that, don't remember which) to server(s). The
thing to keep in mind, of course, is that it keeps the entire content tree
on both sides, so if one just wants to archive data and not necessarily
keep it on local disk, one would need to set something up on the remote
side to rotate older files out or something.

Also note that BitTorrent Sync is proprietary, the linux "client" is a bit
rough and buggy, and the protocol isn't disclosed. Security details are

For my personal files I use Dropbox (yeah, yeah) with EncFS (which works
also on Android) for end-to-end crypto.
