Cloud by Daplie: Secure, plug-and-play home server
It’s now more convenient than ever to put our files in the cloud. All it takes is a decent Internet connection to back up our most important documents, eliminating the fear of losing them in physical drives. As the saying goes, “don’t put all your eggs in one basket” – luckily for cloud storage services, it doesn’t go that way. One caveat, however, is the recurring subscription plans for such service. Many people would like to have their own personal cloud without the monthly fees. That is where the Cloud by Daplie comes in – it’s a personal home server that acts as a secure “cloud” for all your files, and it can be customized based on your needs.
This circular orb-shaped device is a powerful storage hub in itself. It helps you take your files away from online storage services, and keep your files fully secure and encrypted within your own home server. It eliminates the need to pay for monthly cloud services, and you can have the peace of mind that your files will stay yours and won’t be shared with others. By being able to locally connect to all your files in your own personal cloud, it’s easier to retrieve files no matter how old it might be.
Setting up the Cloud is as easy as plugging in an Ethernet cable on its backside. From there, you can customize your cloud’s address using your custom domain. A wizard will help you complete the setup process, and it will automatically sync your files without effort on your part.
You can virtually store your entire life’s worth of documents, photos, videos, and more – you can even let your family share the cloud with yours. Cloud lets you expand your storage up to 8 terabytes, thanks to its easy stackable orbs. If you’d see the need to have some more storage, you can connect your own additional storage devices such as hard drives on every Cloud orb.
Since it stores your files locally on your own private cloud, it securely manages your files without having to worry about online services that tend to “sell” or monetize your data. Advanced encryption techniques such as built-in HTTPS, dynamic authorization, use of authentication codes instead of passwords, and JWT-protected API access come right out of the box. Fail-safe methods of keeping your data intact are also built right in, so the last thing you want to think about is losing your precious files.
With support for open-source development, developers can take advantage of Cloud’s potential for IoT connectivity, making it possible to authorize and control your private cloud from any of your IoT-connected devices.
Daplie really has done a fantastic job. Storing valuable files in a secure, locally accessible location is at the core of Cloud. It provides a virtual “safe” for your files without the need for a monthly online storage service. It lets you take back the Internet for yourself, and have easy access to your files whenever you want.
