Tribler es el primer cliente de BitTorrent totalmente descentralizado, esto es que no requiere de servidores ni de trackers para realizar las descargas. BitTorrent es una gran tecnología para compartir archivos de forma rápida y eficiente, pero como todas las otras tecnologías P2P tiene un talón de Aquiles.

El proceso de descarga se basa en parte en el acceso a servidores centrales que pueden no funcionar, estar desactivados, ser privados, utilizarlos para transmitir virus o incluso espiar a quienes se descargan los ficheros. Aunque BitTorrent es considerado una tecnología Peer to Peer la realidad es que en gran medida seguía dependiendo de estos servidores para su descarga, ademas de necesitar motores de búsqueda como podía ser The pirate Bay o IsoHunt que eran necesarios para poder encontrar el fichero y comenzar su descarga.

BitTorrent Premieres New Live Streaming Platform.

After years of development BitTorrent has now released its live streaming service to the public. BitTorrent inventor Bram Cohen is one of the main developers of the new protocol which he expects to revolutionize online streaming. BitTorrent Inc. sees its BitTorrent Live product as the ultimate tool for creators to reach an audience of millions with minimal bandwidth costs. In 2001 BitTorrent inventor Bram Cohen unleashed a small revolution by creating the first widely adopted technology that made it possible to download large videos online in a timely fashion. A decade later and downloading almost seems like an ancient technology. In 2005 video streaming was brought to the mainstream thanks to YouTube, and not much later it became possible to stream content live over the Internet.

Sync Announces Support for Network Attached Storage (NAS) I love NAS devices, as long as they’re simple, automated, responsive and require little to no maintenance. At my previous company, I worked with a great team of people and built a NAS device that met all these attributes; its value came from its ability to store and serve up lots of data on a local network, while providing a safeguard for disk drive failure.

But, what NAS does not naturally provide is a means to easily move data to another device, inside or outside the environment that it lives in. The alternative is to put your data in the cloud, but then you sacrifice capacity, performance and affordability. Most of all, you sacrifice the privacy of your data. BitTorrent Sync already offers the safest and most efficient way to sync data between devices.

¿Resolviendo la congestión en Internet con BitTorrent? El crecimiento de Internet está siendo tan acelerado en tamaño y servicios que todas las previsiones que hace unos años se hacían acerca de su uso se quedaron cortas. Con miles de millones de usuarios tratando de acceder a unos recursos que no pueden crecer de forma tan exponencial como la demanda, los ISPs, las empresas de contenidos y los distribuidores online tienen que hacer ingentes inversiones para satisfacer las necesidades de los clientes.

Unas necesidades que han pasado de la transmisión de unos pocos kilobytes para enviar un correo hasta decenas de gigas para descargar una película, y eso que todavía no se han implantado definitivamente los contenidos 4K y superiores. ¿Cómo afrontar este desafío?

BitTorrent CEO Eric Klinker discusses the impact of distributed computing on Internet sustainability. Originally published in Harvard Business Review, March 22, 2013.

An open, neutral Internet has been a force for sweeping social change: democratizing information, commerce, and access to jobs, triggering GDP growth and a rising standard of living. Our collective ability to equally access and innovate on Internet platforms, from search and social networks, to content and commerce sites, is fundamental to continued growth. It is not a given. With Internet innovation comes congestion. The amount of content shared and accessed by the world’s 2.4 billion Internet users is constantly increasing — in volume, and in size. It is outpacing the Internet’s, and Internet Service Providers’, ability to efficiently deliver it. Internet penetration and usage continues to expand at exponential rates.
