Site Information

The-Eye is a non-profit, community driven platform dedicated to the archiving and long-term preservation of any and all data including but by no means limited to... websites, books, games, software, video, audio, other digital-obscura and ideas.

The-eye.eu as an open directory allows us to serve large chunks of data back to the community that helps find and provide it.

We currently host various large scale data-sets amounting to millions of files in 140TB of data and you can view our real-time bandwidth statistics here.

Our Mission

Living without the knowledge of our past history, origin and culture is like a tree without roots. The Internet is a worldwide platform for sharing information. It is a community of common interests.

Our mission at The Eye is to preserve pieces of digital history. We are digital librarians.

About Us

The-Eye was born in April 2017, starting out as a side project providing a public resource for various collections much smaller than we deal with today.

As of June 2019 we're seeing 215 million+ requests amounting to over 1000TB+ of content served to millions of unique visitors each month.

We pay $650/month to cover all of our services (servers, bandwidth, hardware upgrades, etc.) and are entirely community funded.

Community

The-Eye has an established and active community on Discord.

We frequently post news, sneak peaks, exclusive content and actively take part in the community.
