Infinit — Decentralized Software‑Based File Storage Platform
The Infinit technology allows for the creation of heterogeneous storage infrastructure by aggregating various storage resources and unifying them into a UNIX-like Infinit file system. Infinit is designed to be as flexible as possible, allowing you to build the ideal infrastructure for your needs, be it a simple NAS, storage used across multiple sites or a completely decentralized storage. Infinit uses a mix of RSA and AES encryption. RSA is used for signing data and encrypting AES keys which are used for encrypting block data and communications between nodes.

Infinit can be set up in a large variety of configurations, creating storage infrastructure with different tradeoffs between reliability, performance of access, cost, etc.

How does Infinit differ from Dropbox, Google Drive and BitTorrent Sync?

Infinit offers system administrators complete control over where their data is stored and how their data storage infrastructure works.

These other solutions clone the same data on each computers, meaning it will always consume your local storage and limit your ability to interact with a large number of files. Also, they don’t encrypt files locally and you cannot add cloud storage to create hybrid infrastructure.


Download and install Infinit’s dependencies

Infinit relies on FUSE to create filesystems in userland. You will need to install FUSE using your distribution’s package manager. For example, if you use a Debian based distribution, you would use

sudo apt-get install fuse

Import the public key used by the package management system:

sudo apt-key adv --keyserver --recv-keys 3D2C3B0B
Executing: gpg --ignore-time-conflict --no-options --no-default-keyring --homedir /tmp/tmp.fCTpAPiWSi --no-auto-check-trustdb --trust-model always --keyring /etc/apt/trusted.gpg --primary-keyring /etc/apt/trusted.gpg --keyserver --recv-keys 3D2C3B0B
gpg: requesting key 3D2C3B0B from hkp server
gpg: key 6821EB43: public key "Infinit <>" imported
gpg: Total number processed: 1
gpg:               imported: 1  (RSA: 1)

Then add the repository locally:

sudo add-apt-repository "deb trusty main"

Finally, you can update your local list of packages and install the command-line tools as you would any other package:

sudo apt-get update
Reading package lists... Done
sudo apt-get install infinit
