1 Hello,
3 Background.
4 One thing that intrigues me is that one storage
5 server can intellegently store files from a variety
6 of hardware devices. I like this concept, but, many
7 of my devices are not common retail systems. Nor
8 do I like the idea of my file being on a server
9 under the control of others.....
12 So I first need to use something like "owncloud"
13 and build a single server at a one location? Then
14 I need to build another server at a diffent location.
15 2 or 3 physically differnt locations should work
16 for my needs, for now. The File System to choose
17 for this is an area where input from others is
18 important.
20 Suggests as to which packages(programs) to use
21 would be of keen interest to me. Surely the iphone,
22 Android and other devices are available are straightforward?
24 Also, I want to be able to included various embedded
25 products built by others, including firmware, bootloaders,
26 logs, sources etc, as well as embedded devices I've had
27 a hand in building. So a flexible framework to
28 add unique (uncommon) hardware to this mix would
29 be a critical need for this effort. I'm researching ideas
30 and codes, so anything that pops into your mind
31 would be of interest to me.
