Create A Personal Cloud

Cloud storage is a common way of sharing your files among the computers and devices you own, but if your storage needs are great, you'll wind up paying for the privilege.  Lima let's you bypass the middleman and easily set up and manage your own cloud at home.  The device plugs into your router and an external USB hard drive of your choice to form a VPN using TLS military grade encryption.  Your cloud data is stored entirely on your hard drive, so your file capacity is determined by the size of your hard drive and not by the limitations of a third party server.  The Lima device can automatically transcode large media files, optimizing them for the size of the device, to ensure the best playback experience.  Going to be somwheare without internet access? No problem you can designate which files you want to be available off-line.  Communication between devices is peer-to-peer and only meta-data is exchanged for synchronization.

The Lima software runs Windows 7 and greater (desktop only),  Windows 10, OSX Yosemite and El Capitan, IOS 8 and 9, and Android 4.X and later.
