  • Tranche

    Tranche is a free and open source file sharing tool that enables the storage of large amounts of data. Designed and built with scientists and researchers in mind, Tranche essentially solves the data sharing problem in a secure and scalable fashion.

    Built with Java. Worked with a team of developers to continue to develop Tranche beginning in January, 2007 at the University of Michigan. Significant acheivements include creating the Graphical User Interface using the Java Swing library, adding batch functionality to the server-client interactions, revamping the download code for more consistent and speedy downloads, and pulling all network-specific variables out of the primary Tranche project to allow for quick setup of independent parallel networks.
