Fucking cloud providers always trying to steal your shit and spy on your things, fucking prying eyes. That's why i've decided to go back hosting my own private cloud from home. Running on some very energy efficient shit: dual core intel atom cpu (so slow that it can't fucking run windows normally), 16gb of ram, because why the fuck not? and 1tb 2.5"hdd, along with unlimited data - 100/100 Mbit/s internet connection with a server response time less than 95ms just to backup my shitty Iphone selfies and cat pics, host some very important files and regularly back up my contacts. This shit runs CentOS, Nginx, https, bitch! This platform is more trustworthy than your shitty dropbox or whatever other shit they offer you. I can choose whether i back-up my shit from local network or over internetz, Costing me no more than 25€ annually(just to keep the machine on 24/7/365).

    Is there an open source equivalent to google drive & co. that can be set up for free on linux? I've been struggling to find such a thing for quite a while, and I'd really love to set up my very own system - even if it takes some work on my part

    We have been using owncloud for a few years, (@uni) nice but you need a client or browser for access from windows

    How did you calculate the costs of running your home server? I'd like to do the same 😅

    Owncloud and nextcloud are both excellent. I've been running an owncloud instance on digitalocean for several years. Haven't looked back at the commercial providers since.

    I highly recommend it.

    @incognito days of the year times hours in the day times cost per kilowatt times power used by machine in kilowatts

    365*24*0.083*(35/1000)

    @chrisebryan and how does one knows how much power the machine uses?

    @incognito power meter? Plenty of cheap ones you can find online, just plug it in between the power chord and the actual wall socket and they give you an instant reading of how much power you're pulling
