7 Awesome Open Source Cloud Storage Software For Your Privacy and Security

by nixCraft on January 14, 2015

Cloud storage is nothing but an enterprise-level cloud data storage model to store the digital data in logical pools, across the multiple servers. You can use a hosting company such as Amazon, Google, Rackspace, Dropbox and others for keeping your data available and accessible 24x7. You can access data stored on cloud storage via API or desktop/mobile apps or web based systems.

In this post, I'm going to list amazingly awesome open source cloud storage engines that you can use to access and sync your data privately for security and privacy reasons.

Ignore the gushy "awesome" bit and check it out. :P  Full article here

Ooooo! This looks pretty good. Looking through, the ownCloud software looks like what I'd want to run. I'll need to check it out when I get home.

If you want to try it in Windows without installing anything, see my post here.  (Recommend it's extracted to a fast HDD/SSD rather than a flash drive.)

This actually got me looking at this subject again... and I realized I already had a solution ready to go!  For anyone else who doesn't know about this and has a Synology NAS, there's a solution called CloudStation.  It was pretty easy to set up, and appears to be working well so far.

Just an FYI.
