  1. I ended up with just one Minio docker and then just create multiple containers inside. The clients are using Duplicati installed as a service, backing up into each their Minio containers. Duplicati encrypts the backups, and they all use different keys. After backup duplicati sends a http string to https://www.duplicati-monitoring.com, which then again sends me daily emails with status. I have run a few restore tests, and it all seems to work fine. All the notes about installation, keys, restore process, etc, is kept at Lastpass. So when things turn bad, i don't need to rethink what to do, just logon to Lastpass and follow my own instructions :) For me this is exactly what I need, and I consider the problem solved... for now at least.
  2. Yes, I looked into Nextcloud, but with the features comes complexity, and what I like about Minio, is that it does exactly what I want.. nothing more, nothing less. I don't want the sync or all the other awesome things that Nextcloud can do... as with the features, comes a greater need for uptime. But thanks for the input
  3. Just an update, I'm currently testing a combination of: -Minio, by Topdockercat, as the backend S3 storage, and I will make one Minio instance per "backer'upper person/household" -Duplicati as the client, doing source encryption -www.duplicati-monitoring.com, for giving me and the backer'uppers the status reports.
  4. Yeah. thanks and I did read up on it. But as with Nextcloud, I can't figure out, how I can keep track of the "succesfullness" of the backups. Maybe what I am looking for is just not very relevant for Unraiders. But I feel it is just around the corner, like there is something I have not realized, one last search I need to do. And then it will be there.. an ability to send invites, people can download clients, backups will happen, both clients and server can keep track of the success, and the storage use, and data will be source encrypted.... I just need to find it.
  5. Thanks, and I checked a few as don't mind a reasonable price tag, if it solves my task in a nice and simple manner. I just want to avoid disasters. Loosing a few hours or even days of work is fine, comparing to loosing years of photos and 6 months of thesis work.
  6. Thanks for the thoughts, and Nextcloud seems as a forward moving project. But Nextcloud is a boat, and I'm looking for lifejackets
  7. Hi, does any have good ideas of what software setup will be the best for me to provide family and friends with a backup destination. The backups will be of data only, biggest risk is theft or loss of laptops, so no need for baremetal functionality. Focus is more on backup, less on syncfunctionality -Connecting and backing up through the internet and not only on LAN. -An overview of the backup status of the workstations, so I can review if they are successfully backed up recently. (keeping an eye on the "kids") -Restoring from either loss of laptops, harddrive failure, ransomware or theft should be easy. -Solution should work without a need to establish VPNs when backing up. -A client side encryption, so I can't read their data. Making space available, seem to be relative simple, but I have found nothing that gives me both source encryption and backupstatus overview. Any good ideas??.
  8. Hi All Was happy with Crashplan for a long time, but switched to Idrive for backing up the increasing number of mobile devices in the family. Idrive makes some linux stuff... Have anyone got Idrive working on Unraid, which could give me some hints or a how-to, I would be grateful !! /René
  9. Systems with 99,999% uptime regarding dataloss with 0 maintenance have existed a long time. Books and cave paintings. Songs and anekdotes have shown to have some dataloss, but distribution were fast and cheap Anyway, as far as I understand Unraid do not protect against dataloss, it protects against fileloss. /René
  10. The Stranger's Long Neck: How to Deliver What Your Customers Really Want Online If you are building anything online, websites, intranets, anything people, action and data oriented, this book is a must read. For those of you that have intranets and wikis that have become relics and more of chronicles than a contemporary effective tool.. give it a read. yes, it is from 2010, and it is less relevant for webshops today, but have become even more relevant for the hard question of when data becomes noise. /Rene
  11. To all those that defend the non delivery, the constant broken half-promises and reward-me teasers, look up the concept of a Stockholm syndrome. /Rene
  12. I suggest changing them to "Soon", "Less Soon" and "Later"
  13. Limetech dont think so. If they thought the beta was "working" a final would be out.
  14. That's this this week, or next this week? Trying guys... Playing the sympathy card now ? /Rene
  15. The last 10% always takes 90% of the effort. Nope, the last 10%, takes 10% of the time. /Rene
