If you have been considering setting up your own personal cloud storage you may be interested in a new project published by the team over at PiMyLifeUp, which refines complete instructions on how to set up a Raspberry Pi personal cloud storage system using the mini PC and an external hard drive or a spare USB storage drive. Check out the instructional video below to learn more about the Raspberry Pi Owncloud Server project and how easy it is to set up your very own personal cloud.
“As the protection of your privacy becomes harder and harder, you may be thinking of moving your files to a private cloud storage. If this is the case, then this tutorial is perfect for you. It is important to remember that since your data will be stored on your local network, you will end up with using more bandwidth if uploading and downloading files from outside your network.”
“Firstly, you will need to have a Raspberry Pi with Raspbian installed. If you haven’t installed Raspbian, then check out our guide on how to install Raspbian via NOOBS (New Out of the Box Software). There are quite a few ways you’re able to install Owncloud onto your Raspberry Pi. In this particular tutorial, we’re going to be downloading a web server (Nginx) and Owncloud.”
