"This service is designed to facilitate storage of all the data used in research, including datasets as well as publications." -our mission statement from 2013

We have been true to this statement and have grown to index over 16TB of data. We currently facilitate the transfer of over 1.5TB of data every day. We extended our index to include video lectures as well!

In 2016 we were approved as a U.S. non-profit called The institute for Reproducible Research so all donations are tax deductible!

Access to data will continue to become increasingly critical. Having a distributed system for storing and accessing this data is critical to maintain a society that is robust to computer failures. We will continue to play our role as the BitTorrent site for academia into the future.
