Anyone have any good experiences or thoughts to share on a "local cloud" device
to allow the increasingly unwired user to backup their stuff.
Obviously there are genuine cloud based services, but some are very limited or
expensive and there's always the upload speed issue (not to mention privacy
etc). A couple of people have asked me about "something to back up my photos"
but iThings don't provide a way to save to a local external HDD without the
intervention of a computer.
Is there a solution with a networked hard disk, probably connected via wireless
for convenience, with an app or similar interface to allow straightforward
backup ? Such a thing probably runs Linux, keeping it on topic [😉]
