Current cloud topology vs Self cloud topology

Central Server Mode

The current cloud system is a central server mode.
Every user has his/her own storage on the cloud server and upload to synchronize and share.
This is the main system topology of Dropbox, and iCloud.

It's the same with the former post office structures.

Distributed Server Mode

SelfCloud series have established a new topology with a distributed server mode.
Every user has his/her own cloud server at home and pushes the notifications to synchronize and share contents to the other devices(his/her own or others).
Then the devices notified connect to the master server(sharer) directly and pull out the contents only for them.

The main purpose of this topology is not to upload contents on the 3th party server.
