After my hosting company referred me to the TOS,
mentioning the fact that I can't backup my PC on my servers.
I started searching for services that might do exactly that.
Now the thing is, I've seen services like Carbonite and Mozy
And I have a couple of issues with them:
- Both of them have proprietary
software that doesn't work on Linux
- Both of them are mainly for backups,
not for getting my Media Streamed to my Phone or another computer
My current status is:
- about 60GB of Music Collection
collected over 14 years.
- 10GB of memories in Photos taken over
(and planning to have much, much more if I'll get a proper hosting
so I would be able to scan old family photos).
- some documents, code files, nothing
- 50-60GB of Movies made and collected.
This size of ~130GB is not static, that's for sure.
I want to be able to stream some of the media to my computer
so I'll have the option to listen to music I've deleted from my computer
or see photos that have been deleted.
(or even stream music to my Android?)
As you probably understand, my idea tends to the Unlimited plans
(or close to that)
thank you very much for your help, sorry for babbling.
I've found 2 services that might be able to do remotely what I want:
Very nice service all-in-all, supports Linux and offers unlimited space.
But, seems to be more for backup and less for accessing
(for streaming, on my phone, etc.)
- Google Storage:
Now this is a bit tricky because technically there isn't
Really Google Storage, I can pay like 100$ per year
for 400GB of Picasa, Google Docs and Gmail
and with the use of GSpace (firefox addon to upload to gmail)
I can technically upload files and they even
added a Player mode that you can stream off it (doesn't work for me btw).
The solution of Google Storage seems to be a bit of an stretch..
Mainly because technically it's not suppose to do that
and I'm pretty sure it's a matter of time until
they'll either contact me from Google or GSpace won't work anymore.
The CrashPlan idea almost had it but once again, it seems
more for backup and less for accessing on a regular basis..
Not to mention the important fact that no streaming = no deal.
