Using ‘ownCloud’ on Raspberry Pi to Take Back Control of Data


Last month I lost what could have been a beautiful night laying out a PCB while at a secluded cottage because Google Drive didn’t sync a couple of my board files.  I switched to Microsoft Skydrive for my cloud-based storage since Windows Mesh worked so well for me over the years before it was discontinued.  At the same time, I also created my ownCloud data storage server by using my Raspberry Pi and an external 2TB drive.  I think the future will have most technically-apt people hosting their own data as cost goes down and privacy concerns go up.  Here’s to hoping that I can eventually transition all service-based services to my own servers soon.  Below is a link to an article I wrote on Element14 detailing the build — check it out!
