Can you offer your experiences with Linode/Digital Ocean volumes or spaces (paid) … speed & reliability versus one of the free Nextcloud options?
I’ve experimented with a couple of the Nextcloud options but in my experience, the upload connection failure rate can be hit & miss.
Never used any I d rather have a physical backup, but it s only my opinion, for what it s worth.
Overall I hear very good things about Linode. I can’t speak to using the cloud for a backup, but I suspect any of the ones you mentioned should do well in most cases. I suspect that upload speeds are more on your provider (assuming you are wanting to use this from say, home).
Bet that it would depend also on what you want to backup on the cloud.
Nuffin but one’s and zero’s
Thanks for the replies lads.
Will try out of the web browser, rather than webdav via file manager. Maybe it’s the webdav protocol.
I just saw this post.
I have been fiddling with this kind of solution for years.
I did set up Nextcloud and that worked great for 4-5 months until the updates started to “knock”. Everything broke and there was no comeback!
It was rather tiresome to set up so I looked for something else and found Yunohost.
Now I have a working Yunohost inside Virtualbox in Archlabs running Nextcloud.
I read that using Virtualbox should only be for testing but it works very well for me.
I use Nextcloud for work and sometimes I need alot of space. (working with music and film).
At the moment, I don’t have a need to self-host but I’ll absolutely take a look at what Yunohost has to offer.
