  • DataHaven.NET is cross-platform application
  • written in Python 2.7 using Twisted framework
  • Windows XP, Vista, 7, 8
  • Ubuntu/Debian
  • I need a MacBook to build release for MacOS :-)
  • DataHaven.NET uses virtual credits
  • you spent credits to rent storage space from other users
  • you gain credits by providing your HDD to others
  • accumulate enough credits and sell them to users who need space
  • you can buy credits in DataHaven.NET LTD with your Credit Card
  • WARNING! no way to use stolen credit cards, you can spent your purchased credits only to pay for storage, you buy "non-transferable" credits
  • you can sell your earned credits for BitCoins
  • we plan to start buying credits from users for $ US when get some profits
  • you can set a schedule for every file or folder you wish to backup
  • new version of your local data will be created when scheduler fire the event
  • you set how many versions to keep, older will be removed
  • DataHaven.NET divide all backed up data on blocks
  • remote user keep just a piece of every block as a single file on his local drive
  • so theoretically you can back up any amount of data
  • the data redundacy is 2:1
  • so the copy of your data stored in the network takes twice more than original data size
  • DataHaven.NET compress files with gzip during backup process, in fact it can be less than double size
  • data redundancy and ECC method allow to rebuild your data stored on remote machines
  • you need to protect your Private Key as good as possible
  • keep one copy of your Key on USB flash drive
  • you can set up DataHaven.NET and it will start up only with that USB flash and read your Key
  • software will keep a copy of your Key only in RAM and do not save on local disk
  • after start up your PC - remove the USB stick and keep it safe
  • when your backup is finished - remove the original data from the local disk
  • if you lost your PC be sure the power were switched OFF - RAM will be erased
  • now if you lost your PC you do not loose your data - you have the Key, bad guy don\'t have!
  • than you can recover your account with your Private Key from USB stick and restore the data
  • DataHaven.NET software is written in Python and distributed as is
  • we provide executable code in Python sources
  • however this is proprietary software, not GPL, BSD, etc.
  • you can run the program for any purpose
  • you can study how the program works, and change it so it does your computing as you wish
  • you can redistribute copies so you can help your neighbor
  • but you CAN NOT distribute copies of your modified versions to others
  • if you wish to change the code - send me your modifications, I hope to build an open society around the project
  • you need to run DataHaven.NET software on your machine and keep it working
  • be connected with other users who stores your data
  • software will monitor every piece of your backed up data
  • not reliable suppliers will be replaced with fresh users
  • data redundancy and ECC method allows to rebuild the lost fragments
  • reconstructed pieces will be uploaded to new supplier
  • if you do not want to keep you PC working to monitor your distributed data you can assign another user to do this for you, but this will cost
  • you can keep several backed up versions of given folder or file
  • you can limit this in settings
  • you can set unlimited number of versions to keep, but check that you have enough distributed storage space
  • older version will be removed
