    Rolling your own cloud

    I am liking the level of integration I am seeing on Ubuntu One, but I prefer to store the files on my own web hosting service. Is there any way for me to do that?
    Think before you type: If anybody asks you to type anything with rm -rf on the CLI, DO NOT do it! As a matter of fact, if you don't know what a set of commands will do, ask for clarification from other members.

    I would also like to do something like this, however using a home server that I could connect to while I'm traveling.

    I'm not sure if Ubuntu One will allow you to store files elsewhere, but you can do it on your own. Mount a folder on your system from an FTP server or other protocols. There are several file systems based on FUSE that can treat your Gmail and other accounts as local file systems. Cheers!

    http://code.google.com/p/lsyncd/

    Lsyncd uses rsync to synchronize local directories with a remote machine running rsyncd. Lsyncd watches multiple directories trees through inotify. The first step after adding the watches is to rsync all directories with the remote host, and then sync single file by collecting the inotify events. So lsyncd is a light-weight live mirror solution that should be easy to install and use while blending well with your system. See lsyncd --help for detailed command line options.

    BTW, does anyone know any good iFolder replacements? I have settled on Dropbox for now but I'd definitely prefer if I had the server part under my own control ....

    Join the following group and check out the scripts to build iFolder client and Simias server. It is working on 9.04 Ubuntu server and client on Ubuntu 9.10

    I am looking for testers, post your reports to this group.

    Thumbs down Re: Rolling your own cloud

    I wish it had GlideOS integration. They offer good free space.
