Ori is a secure distributed file-system under development for Linux and BSD operating systems along with OS X.

Ori is a project out of Stanford and its features include peer-to-peer support, the ability to work offline, secure data transfers over SSH, and instant access with background synchronization.

The project's self-explanation is, "Ori is a distributed file system built for offline operation and empowers the user with control over synchronization operations and conflict resolution. We provide history through light weight snapshots and allow users to verify the history has not been tampered with. Through the use of replication instances can be resilient and recover damaged data from other nodes."

Aside from source access, there's pre-built packages for Ori for Arch, Ubuntu, FreeBSD, and Homebrew/OSX. Ori is under semi-active development with the latest commits being from early December. Those wishing to learn more about the Ori distributed file-system can visit the SourceForge project site.
