How to deal with your data is getting increasingly difficult. In the old days you had papers, files, note-block’s anf filing cabinets to store it all. That is largely gone. Many companies and the government supply web services to deal with their account data. Some of it you may want to keep as a copy to be sure you have the same as the companies or government. You end up with lot of data, structured as you can and then comes the question “What to do with it?”.
Digital privacy also gets increasingly important in society. We get spied over our behaviour on the web. We use location services, handy, but our behaviour gets recorded and researched on. Very handy these cloud based attractive programs that lets you store your contacts. From person to person the relations can be monitored for advertising purposes or worse.
A possibility is to store your data online at a cloud service. So you put your financial data, photographs, movies for view to others you do not know. Most providers do not guarantee anything other than a promise to keep you data safe and available. You also do not know what happens with it, it may be used for research as input for big data investigations. If you want to stay away from this a personal cloud may be an option.
This site deals with just that. Setup your own server with as much storage as you need at the speed you want making sure all details are thought about. The features you require can be installed at maximum flexibility but also solutions are provided that work for a certain job.
The general Menu supplies you with information about the aspects to consider for a server at home. Of course the hardware choices are discussed. Also the software that is used is important. The other menu’s discuss the software setup.
This is the third version of Home Server.
