Sironta will be presented in EclipseCon 2011, March 21st - 24th, California.
The spanish software company, Sironta Software will be present at the EclipseCon 2011. This year the most international Eclipse event will take place in March, from 21 to 24, in Santa Clara, California, USA.
With the release of its new product, Sironta, a collaboration software platform used for exchanging, creating and editing documents that require teamwork, Sironta Software will be present at the Eclipse Hot New Products Showcase.
Sironta platform connects two or more users without making any network changes to share files of any type and any size from anywhere in the world without violating the terms of confidentiality or the NDA that such documents may have.
Because of its P2P method, after editing a document, only changes are sent through the network, not entire files. Even more, you can edit your OpenOffice.org documents off-line, without the need to be connected to the network. Once you reconnect to the Internet, your peers will synchronize with you and will see the realized changes.
Sironta uses a room representation to simplify its use and to shorten its learning curve. The user can create rooms to organize both the shared information and the other users. It empowers the user to collaborate with anyone as if they were together in the same room, simply using their own PC.
“Our product is ready to provide collaboration services to every PC or Mac user, helping them to create, edit and share information and documents with their partners, regardless of the OS used” said Pablo Hernández, Co-Founder and CEO of Sironta.

Sironta is the first P2P collaboration tool with OpenOffice.org embedded to create and edit documents that can be shared with other Sironta users. It is developed on Eclipse with an AGPL v3 license and uses XMPP protocol to manage the communications between peers.
Sironta is encompassed within the DEN4DEK (Digital Ecosystems Network of regions for DissEmination and Knowledge Deployment) and OPAALS (Open Philosophies for Associative Autopoietic Digital Ecosystems) European projects and is already used by MIT engineers.
The application has Linux, Windows and Mac OS versions. All three versions can be downloaded for free from Sironta's website.
