    Re: Ubuntu One To Be Discontinued

    I'm considering setting up an ownCloud server at home and synchronizing everybody's files into a couple of TB external hard drive so at least everybody has 2 copies... one on their system and one in ownCloud. Then maybe set up a separate HD to backup the ownCloud server (everybody's files) nightly or weekly.

    Or if I set up a Crashplan acocunt, have the ownCloud server automatically backing up to the cloud. Might save money that way, as it is only backing up "one" computer....

    Re: Ubuntu One To Be Discontinued

    Looking for an easy way to transfer your files from UbuntuOne to another Cloud Storage Service? Keep an eye on Mover.io!

    Background:

    I have a Copy.com account and they provided a means to use Mover.io to copy files from other online services into Copy.com (Mover.io actually does many more services than just Copy.com... that is just how I heard of them).

    Difference:
    • No download-and-upload the files, it works server-to-server and your computer doesn't even need to be turned on.
    • It can be scheduled to run at specific times, such as in the middle of the night when you are not changing or touching any of the files
    • The schedule can be recurring Monthly, Weekly, Daily or Hourly making it an easy method to backup one service to another (including FTP, sFTP, WebDAV and Amazon S2)
    • You can choose to Archive (Zip) your file before transfer (saves space and bandwidth if you are backing things up)
    • You can choose to only move files changed between scheduled transfers (Incremental)
    • Handles 22 different "connectors" or services/server types that you can copy to or from,


    Ubuntu One?

    I asked them if they were going to provide an UbuntuOne connector, and a couple days later they implemented a test (Beta) connector for UbuntuOne to my account to try. So I set it to copy my Ubuntu One files (in its entirety) and it looks like it copied them without any problems!

    They (Moveri.io) will be making a public announcement soon, but if you want to use it now you can contact them and ask them to attach this connector to your account.

    Free?

    My Copy.com account provided some use of this, but otherwise it costs money. It looks like you get 1 scheduled and 2GB transfer for free, or 5 transfers and 10GB per month for $15 per month (and of course, higher tiers for more money, including business levels).

    Connectors

    Their list of connectors includes
    GreenQloud, Yandex Disk, Office 365, Sharepoint, FTP, Dropbox, Box, Google Drive, OneDrive, Copy, Webdav, Amazon S3, Rackspace, Egnyte, MySQL, SugarSync, SmugMug, SFTP, Dreamhost, Media Temple & Openstack.


    I hope this helps somebody.

    Hi,

    This is a message for everyone looking for a replacement to Ubuntu One or any other cloud services.

    I have a found FireDrive, a cloud service offering 50 GB of storage for free!

    Wow! very user-friendly and play MP3, watch videos edit documents on your web browser. Let's just say that Google Drive and it's 15GB, presented earlier as the best alternative, looks small beside it.

    Go to ww.firedrive.com

    Great step-by-step on setting up Copy in Linux (and it works). This solves my file synchronization issue, especially since Copy is cross-platform AND cross-distribution. Plus with the ease of Mover.io, I have easy migration from Ubuntu One to Copy on my Ubuntu system.

    Re: Ubuntu One To Be Discontinued

    the safest would probably be to use owncloud as that would leave the data at home.

    But the ideal workflow for me is to have data available anywhere without being dependent of a single network and server at home.
    A good alternative to ubuntuone would be dropbox or copy.com.
    Copy.com starts with a free 15Gb storage space and clients for linux, smartphones, apple and windows.
    if you go to https://copy.com/?r=VZlg7v, you and I will both get an additional 5Gb storage.

    Dropbox too small? I recommend free 15Gb from copy.com + 5Gb bonus for both of us

    Re: Ubuntu One To Be Discontinued

    For just synchronizing files, Copy.com does a pretty good job.

    Where I find these services failing is when managing and using these files via the browser. The 2 best for this is, no surprise, Microsoft and Google. Microsoft gets a slight edge in that the files that are stored in OneDrive and syncrhonized don't have to be "converted" for the online applications to open and edit these files. I even have them stored in Open Document Format since my associated Windows machines run LibreOffice (not MS Office). OneDrive can even open and edit things like PHP files with color syntaxing.

    Otherwise I prefer Google Docs to Microsoft's Office Online (at this point).. better response time and easy to use features.

    Re: Ubuntu One To Be Discontinued

    I tried Ubuntu One storage once. It was clunky. I use Dropbox for synchronizing files, though I don't actually need synchronizing anymore. I still have a couple of gigabytes of files there.

    I have decided to try Google Drive for some files. It seems to work OK. Yahoo's Flickr now offers 1 terabyte of free image storage with no time limits. I have begun switching to it and it isn't perfect but it is a good place to backup my images. I have less than 100 GB of images. I have about 15 GB of work related videos that I will move there.

    Cloud storage is the future for me. I used Carbonite for a year to backup my files. I didn't have any crashes but it was great for when I wiped a drive and reloaded the data. I ended up dropping it and using Carbon Copy Cloner on my Mac Book. It was better because everything on the drive was copied not just the file system data.

    If my computers are ever stolen or destroyed in a fire my data will be lost, unless I have it stored at another site. That is why I want to move everything to the cloud so I can access it from anywhere no matter what happens to my personal computers. I am implementing a system whereby I save things to my local drive and upload them to the cloud at the end of each day. This way it simplifies my storage and keeps things secure. This also will simplify managing my data when I travel away from my desktop. I don't do sensitive work and I don't store financial data on machines. The cloud will work for me.

    Does anyone have an open-source alternative to U1/Dropbox/SpiderOak? I'm not interested in hosting my own (owncloud, etc)..
