Using Azure Storage as own “dropbox”/“OneDrive” RRS feed

  • General discussion

  • I must admit I have not make yet a deep search, and probably the solution is out there, we just starting to define the solution.

    We use an storage account to serve images and other documents in our web solution, on the other hand, some of this files are ones we work on daily basis on our computers.

    Is there any solution already implementes/working that could allow to sync local folders with folders on a storage account? (like a "dropbox"/"oneDrive")

    It must be with user control (folder base permissions would be ok), change log (like Dropbox nice RSS would be great), collision control, and seamless sync on the user side (most of the user will be not techies at all)

    I know about odrive, but this require a VM on the Server side, what would be nice to avoid. http://blog.oxygencloud.com/2014/02/10/build-your-own-dropbox-in-azure/

    Other solution would be a BitTorrent Sync over a Ubuntu VM on the server https://www.getsync.com/

    But before going deep, I would like to ask you experts about it.

    Thanks and regards.

  • Look at OwnCloud. It has a synchronizer client. You'll need to run a VM in Azure of course.
