About CodeLathe

CodeLathe is a privately-held Austin, Texas, USA based Personal Cloud software company founded in 2008.

Since we started in 2008, our goal has been to enable companies and customers to “Run their own Personal Cloud”.

There are few apps I think are life changing. Yours is one I class as that. Thank you. Thank you. Thank you once more!

Tonido for consumers and FileCloud for businesses offer a compelling alternative to public cloud file services allowing consumers to leverage their existing computers or IT infrastructures to keep control over their own data.

CodeLathe is behind Tonido, which is a software and service that makes your devices accessible from anywhere via a web browser or mobile devices. Tonido runs on your desktop as well as on a small, low-cost (less than $100), low-power, always on home server called TonidoPlug. Our Enterprise product FileCloud allows Businesses, Universities and Hosting Providers to run their own On-Premises File Storage, Mobile Access and Sync Solution.

We are a profitable company, doubling our revenues each year, growing organically and in for the long haul. We have lots and lots of customers with more new customers every year. We are trying to build a company that “Always does the right thing”. We built Tonido because we were unhappy with the advent of cloud based file sharing services and we wanted to go back the other direction. We are committed to user empowerment and privacy. We want to build the best possible software and spend countless hours working on improving every aspect of the experience.
