To create your own cloud you will be needing a Raspberry pi 3 model B and a hard drive to convert it to a cloud storage. There are many organizations who provide the suit for client-server for creating file hosting services, you can use ownCloud to create your cloud platform, this ownCloud is similar to your Dropbox, but you can create your own storage drive and use this ownCloud as a secured access to your cloud drive.

You have to use raspberry pi as your server and your storage drive, you have to configure the raspberry to save data that is stored from your ownCloud account and this can be done by configured by installing the ownCloud in your raspberry, you can use 1 TB hard drive as a storage device for this project. In order to access the drive from any part of the world, you have to forward the port of your internet connection.

Project Description:

  1. Raspberry Pi 3 B: Raspberry pi is a microprocessor which can be used as a mini computer for low computing operations, it has a dual band LAN, faster Ethernet, Bluetooth, it also has USB and HDMI ports for connecting devices. This device can be used as a server which we are doing in this project.
  2. Micro SD card: You will need a minimum of 8 gigabytes SD card for this project, this SD card is used as the ROM of the raspberry pi.
  3. Hard drive: You will need a hard drive to store the data, which acts as the cloud storage drive.

Project Implementation:

  1. Download the Raspbian OS and install it in the micro SD card
  2. Download ownCloud in your raspberry pi 3 B
  3. Mount and setup your hard drive
  4. Enable SSI(Server side includes) for secure access
  5. Enable port forwarding in your WAN connection
  6. Create a ownCloud account and save your files from any part of the world

Project Brief: Once you install all the software and configure your personal cloud you just need to login to your ownCloud account and upload the data which you want to store in your cloud drive, now you can store and access the data from any part of the world.
