[WEBINAR] Bulletproof: How Today's Business Leaders Stay on Top


Definition - What does Seedbox mean?

A seedbox is a type of storage server that enables quick uploading and downloading of files and data in a peer to peer (P2P) network.

It is a private server that is entirely dedicated to providing secure and quick access to digital files. It commonly uses and is implemented on the BitTorrent file downloading protocol and network.

Techopedia explains Seedbox

A seedbox is primarily used in torrent file downloading applications and services. Typically, a seedbox is connected to a high speed network and provides a download and upload speed of 100 Mpbs to several Gbps. A seedbox works when the BitTorrent protocol is used to store files and data on it from a remote/local computer. The seedbox then feeds or uploads the data to all connected users. Having a higher bandwidth capability, a seedbox generally enables file downloads or uploads more quickly than downloads or uploads to a standard peer computer.
