SCP your backups and files to cloud endpoints with security and ease.

Upload files securely to your cloud storage from Linux, Unix and OSX boxes without having to install any client software. Couchdrop is your SCP server on steroids.

What is SCP

SCP is Secure-Copy. It is the standard way to transfer files in Linux, Unix, OSX terminals and network appliances.

SCP uses the Secure Shell (SSH) to copy files over the network to a chosen destination. The joy of SCP is that because it uses SSH, it is often allowed through firewalls and other security systems by default. Another perk is that it is a simple one liner command.

SCP in action to cloud storage

Couchdrop SCP

Couchdrop allows you to use the SCP protocol to work directly with files in the cloud. Out of the box Couchdrop supports transferring files to and from Dropbox, Box and other common cloud file stores without installing any additional software.

Couchdrop SCP provides a centralized location for your files, so that your files are not scattered across insecure servers at different locations.

Couchdrop also offers the ability to SCP files as attachments directly to emails and it allows you to configure read/write tokens so that others can send you files or pull them down should you need this.

Quick, Simple and Easy
Uploading files is remarkably easy, just SCP them directly to Couchdrop and within secounds they will appear in your Dropbox, Google Drive or AWS S3 accounts. You can then download these files in AWS, Dropbox or from the my.couchdrop web interface.

Frequently Asked Questions
What is SCP?
SCP is a the file transfer protocol built into OpenSSH. It is more secure than FTP and is bundled by default with OSX, Unix and every Linux distribution.

Is it secure?
Yes! Security is paramount and a key motivator behind creating Couchdrop. We don't store your files on our servers and never intend on doing this.
Do we have to use Dropbox, Google Drive or Amazon AWS?
Couchdrop delivers files to your cloud storage provider rather than storing them on our servers. This means you can upload your files direct to your desktop from devices that do not support Dropbox or Amazon AWS storage and it's secure.
Can I self host it?
Sometimes when security and privacy is of paramount concern, cloud services are not ideal. Couchdrop can be self hosted.
