Acquired in 2009 by ExpanDrive, a data software company, Strongbase is a cloud storage solution that focuses on rsync backup for businesses. Their system is compatible with Linux, Mac OSX, and Windows.
Strongspace is ExpanDrive’s latest product offering for cloud storage and backup focusing specifically on rysnc, which synchronizes files from one location to another while minimizing data transfer by using delta encoding. The system relies on secure links through ZFS and rsync as well as wicp encryption, which provides a high level of security for system users. Through SFTP and other methods, Strongspace developers have created their own API and command-line utility, making data easier to access and control. Strongspace creates images of all files and folders, which allows for the convenient and simple ability to roll back to daily or weekly snapshots of data. Strongspace offers three basic storage plans with limited space and also provides the option of custom plans with upwards of 15TB of storage.
With Strongspace, businesses are afforded the benefits of cloud storage at a scalable and custom price. The use of rsync and ZFS to access data permits an IT department to manage data across multiple platforms seamlessly
