I just upgraded DSM to 4 and installed Cloudstation. I've been tasked with finding a reliable automated solution for File sync. This looked promising, and is stated as "Private Cloud" however now seems more of a bleeding security hole, if it's not encapsulated with SSL or some other technology. I have not begun to Pentest it yet, but I will. I've looked a little, but haven't found detailed documentation on this tech yet. Our stations have been attacked before, so I would rather not solely depend on local security.
We are experimenting with HiDrive, but Strato is VERY EU centric for accounts and either way is more of a backup/restore method (which WILL result in some human error). SpiderOak would be my preference but cross compiling is required for the client and I may have some issues with gLIBC versioning. (I'm testing on a DS508 which is PPC and eventually at DS1010 which is Intel) These solutions are, however, encrypted from end to end at both the file and transmission level. If it hits the net and is meant to be private, it has to be encrypted at a minimum with SSL. My preference would be encrypted at the file level then sync'd within SSL. These are basic requirements for me. Hopefully more will continue to post here.
I do acknowledge Cloudstation is still in Beta, so we need to let the developers know what works and what doesn't, and well as what/how we need to use it.
End-To-End encryption & encapsulation
Shared cloud folder as well as Home/Cloudstation folder
I see as optional:
On demand sync
Portable App (Most definitely, PD24! I love my portable apps and use them daily.)
Good step-by-step examples for proper standardized deployment. (This was unbeleivably easy to get setup and working, I will admit.)
Just my nibble on the topic. Thanks for starting it, Karsayor.
