How To Create Your Own Cloud Service

Published on 16 September 14
Many of us rely on cloud storage service in business and for safe storing of personal data; but if you've been paying attention to whatâs happening online, chances are you may have questioned the security measures used to protect your data. Popular services such as Dropbox and iCloud have been named- quite regularly- as victims of hacking, so itâs hardly surprising to see people pulling information off the cloud in masses.
So what does this mean for you; and in particular the safekeeping of your data? Well, this is where a smart person opts to create their own storage service which they control, with a cool service called ownCloud. If youâre missing out on all those fancy syncing features, itâs time you tried ownCloud: it takes about five minutes to set up, and it offers more features than youâd imagine.
Measures taken by Dropbox to counter email leaks have yet to persuade people to trust the service again; but meanwhile, ownCloud is free and open source, and it is one of the simplest programs to use, according to popular opinion, because apparently the people behind it aimed for ease-of-use and targeted both the advanced and basic user. Simplicity works.
Think of it as Dropbox-like, but operating on your own server or website. The service is robust enough to replace most- if not all- services offered by established file-syncing services, and it has, for a considerable number of users. So you do have options here, like getting busy and trying out this service or you can actually buy cloud storage from reputable service, if you prefer.

What You Get With ownCloud
Aside from the fact that it doesn't require advanced technical knowledge, it allows users to create and share their own apps, as long as they run on the service. Some of these services include task lists, text editors and more, which makes it more versatile, offering more services than just file syncing.
Check out some of the features:
  • External storage and encryption: users can add external storage with services such as WebDAV, SWIFT, Google Docs, etc.
  • Galleries: have fun as you share photos with family and friends, and allow them access to see the photos and download.
  • Activity feed: look around to see whatâs happening in your own cloud, perhaps by checking out who shared what file, or alternatively, access the RSS feed, etc. etc.
  • App store: if at any time youâd want to add one or more of the apps, go to settings and enable new apps. There are plenty of apps available for download.

Beyond this, users get to enjoy these new features on the latest version of ownCloud:
  • -· Responsive design: itâs faster and better suited for mobile devices, so you donât have to sit around waiting for a page to load anymore.
  • -· Better sharing: enjoy seamless sharing from server-to-server, on a different ownCloud installation, and if youâd like to, you can exercise more control over shared folders, putting both files exactly where you want, and you donât lose sight on who owns what.
  • -· Access, storage and control: you can use Object Store as primary storage and connect more apps within the easy-to-use infrastructure.
  • So check out the service, and see how it boosts your experience. Chances are youâll like it.
