A little over a year ago, two of our founders tried to share some home movies over the Internet. Seems simple enough, right? Quickly frustrated by file size limitations, lack of privacy, and recurring fees with online solutions, they thought there had to be a better way. When they couldn't find a product they wanted to buy, they decided to build it themselves, and the idea behind Transporter was born.
We designed Transporter with our social lifestyles in mind. It lets you share, collaborate, and back up files with other Transporter users located anywhere in the world. As a device you own and control, Transporter stores your data only on your local network and the local networks1 of other Transporter users whom you specifically authorize. In other words, it is completely private, unlike the cloud. And best of all, using Transporter is as easy as sending an invite to the people you want to share with, they accept, and that’s it. It couldn’t be any simpler.
