Self hosted alternatives



  • Good bandwidth, better spec server? Better than a DC you rent VPS from? Sure it's possible, but will also cost a fortune.
    We've already discussed how the security is better in a well-known cloud provider instead of on your own servers in your own DC.

    Could you please share the link to that post?

    @scottalanmiller do you know what threads those were?

    The gist is that Amazon, MS and Google have teams of people working on security, it's extremely unlikely that a single person, or even a small team could come up with equal, let alone better solutions.
    Also, just hacking one of those services doesn't ensure direct to your data access. They now have to surf through a nearly insurmountable amount of data in the hopes of finding your data. Of course, you are the weak link in either system, be it bad passwords, phishing attacks, etc

    It's it @scottalanmiller who said that the NAS has admitted that Amazon has better security than they do? Or did I dream that?

    If you are a burgaler looking to steal something, of course you are going to make that statement that you cannot break into a particular area. People will move their valuables into that area and whoops, the thieves have them.

    Government sponsored, highly motivated, extremely dangerous combined with serious levels of funding burglars.

    @Dashrender Remember Snowden, and how well government secures things.

    yes, but I'm not talking about the government. I'm talking about the likes of Google, Microsoft, Amazon.

    An intelligence agency with billions in funding designed to break into the digital warehouses of Amazon, Google, Microsoft.

    Whether by national security orders or breaking in digitally, they'll get in.

    If you don't want these 3 letter agencies at your data. Don't have data with connectivity.

    CIA. And the statement was "better than anyone."

    But it's where the government moves its stuff. It's not what they tell the public, it's what they do to protect themselves from the public.
