CloudTurbine leverages the proliferation and scalability of third-party file sharing services to distribute and mirror data across networks. There is no dedicated CloudTurbine server. The core CloudTurbine library writes files to local or mounted file systems or to an FTP server. Once files are written to disk, they may be distributed using any type of private or public, local or cloud sharing service (Dropbox, Google Drive, Syncthing, etc.)

Although CloudTurbine does not include a dedicated/core server, an HTTP/HTTPS utility server is included in the CloudTurbine distribution, CTweb.  Using this in conjunction with the browser-based WebScan utility provides a powerful method for accessing CloudTurbine data.
