Have you ever thought about the consequences of losing your business or personal files? A lot of people think that saving a backup to an external Hard Drive or memory stick is good enough, but what happens if you accidentally drop your external Hard Drive – or even worse – lose it, or if your memory stick suddenly stops working right at the point where you need to access your backed-up files?
If your laptop or PC hard drive fails you will have little or no hope of recovering any of your files, worse still, if your external Hard Drive or memory stick also fails then that’s it – your files are gone for good!
Well, this is where the wonder of Cloud Backups comes in. With Cloud, there is never a chance of losing your files. Not only are your files backed up, but we also take backups of your backed-up files … sounds confusing, but is very much a necessity!
Gone is the single point of failure (the single point of failure being the external Hard Drive or memory stick that contains your backed up files) and the worry of not knowing when your laptop or PC hard drive might fail – remember that you will never get any warning of impending Hard Drive failure – it happens suddenly and without warning, and we have seen customers almost reduced to tears when the realisation hits that their data/files have gone for good, followed by the enormity of the task they now have trying to recreate as many files as possible.
We worked hard to create a solid Storage Network based on a reliable cloud system able to replicate your files in real time in 3 different locations to guarantee the maximum protection against hacking, viruses or also technical problem in the datacenter.
So every file you load into StorageCloudBox will be saved in a really safe place this is sure!
To improve also the protection of the sensible information we have implemented a transparent encryption system based on the strong AES-256 protocol, also in case of security breach in the systems nobody will be able to read your files without your password.
We added and important security layer that not only protect your data once received on our servers but also during the transportation, yes we are able to guarantee the 100% of security during all the steps of data loading.
All this is reached using an Enterprise Level VPN based on OpenVPN with a strong CypherKey that permit to control the access to our network with a big precision and keeping out all the threats such as hackers, industrial spies and hostile governments.
Our strong and secure storage system was need a great piece of software to manage the human operations such as the upload and the files/folders management and we decided to involve the king of the Cloud storage solutions OwnCloud.
OwnCloud provides a free, open source file sharing and application server and platform with desktop and smartphone applications, allowing you to create a personal or corporate cloud under your own control. If you’re a Dropbox user or a Gdrive user for example, then you’re familiar with the advantages of a remote cloud which keeps files on all of your desktops and devices in sync and allows you to share them with other people.
Open source developer Frank Karlitschek decided to build OwnCloud after giving a talk on data privacy, warning people about privacy with cloud vendors such as Dropbox:
So, build it yourself they said. Sure, I’ve built things in the past, so sure, I’ll do it. And there is where I started my odyssey, first, to protect myself, my friends and my colleagues from the snooping of governments, and other bad guys, and later – as I saw the worldwide interest grow – to build a real and successful project. —OwnCloud Founder Frank Karlitschek
He describes his thinking process more in a blog post: Why I Built OwnCloud and Made It Open Source.
Karlitschek intentionally used open source technologies so that the code “would be completely transparent (so unlikely to contain ‘back doors’ to my data).”
He also wanted to support application extensions to support a Google News type application, virus scanning and file logging.
Well using our storage technology + owncloud we are able to offer you an incredible experience, first of all the simplicity! An example?
You can load and access your files on our cloud using a BROWSER!!
Once completed the purchase process on our website you will receive automatically the server address to insert in your web browser and the login to start with the first access.
The GUI is really easy and you will see a windows similar to Microsoft Windows folders from where manage files and folder as well.
To upload a file just drag it into the empty white space or use the “upload button”
We start by logging into your PC remotely so you can install our OwnCloud backup software and then designate folders to backup, or you can tell us which folders you would like backed up. You can choose as many or as few folders as you like, however we do recommend having just one main folder for backing up purposes, so you can always be sure that your files are backed-up and safe from one location (folder) on your computer.
Once our software has been installed and we have added all the folders you would like to backup, it’s all automatic from there. Your backed-up folders are constantly monitored for any changes in real-time, so whenever you save a new file (or edit an existing file) within one of your backed-up folders, the newly created or modified file will then be automatically back-up (or sync) to our cloud-based Google servers in real-time, moments after you save the file – It really is as simple as th
