Seadrive is a novel file synchronizations framework and file hosting service for offshore naval fleets. Offshore vessels outside the range of cellular networks employ volatile satellite-based networks unsuited for file synchronization. Seadrive aspires to provide naval fleets with usable file hosting services over low bandwidth, high latency network links with high loss rate and large variability in the overall network stability. We provide the rationale for Seadrive; present the architecture, and design of the framework. We present an initial evaluation of the correctness and performance, preliminary results shows that Seadrive outperforms existing system in the test environment.
