But why would you choose to build a personal cloud instead of using standard public cloud services such as Dropbox or Amazon S3?
On the public cloud, your files are not under the control of your IT services and usage is restricted. The files are stored with unknown software, procedures, and possible security flaws. Additionally, with sensitive and personal data hosted on foreign soil, local laws are not necessarily respected. Access rights and system reporting regularly do not comply with more stringent security protocols. Freemium software as a service (SaaS) offerings, including cloud computing, are free for individuals, but costs quickly ramp up for businesses.
Pydio is an open source file sharing platform for enterprises. It features a simple and sleek web and mobile app, and hosting is securely located on your private server. As easy to use as other great consumer software, Pydio is designed to provide enterprise-grade security and control.
