sam9s 2nd Rasp Pi Project! Personal Cloud powered by Tonido


The High 5 Flyer
Hi Friends,

Sharing with you another Project that I did on Raspberry Pi this weekend.

Tonido is a server application that you can install on a Windows, Linux or OSX machine and can have your own personal cloud running in minutes. Tonido Server allows you to access all your files on your computer from a web browser, smartphone, tablet or even DLNA enabled devices from anywhere across the world.

It is very much like any cloud service like Dropbox or Google Drive, where you have access to your media and documents from internet, and you also have a sync client, much like google drive that you can install on number of machines to sync files from your cloud.

Since its your own cloud you dont have to upload anything to these services, all you need is to copy all your files and media on a dedicated machine and install Tonido, which immediately converts your machine in to fully dedicated personal cloud.

Some of the very distinct features that make Tonido different from the usual cloud services are ...

1. Works universally, windows, Linux, Mac and all major mobile phones tablets supported. Including iOS, Android, Blackberry and Windows Phone.

2. Works on Raspberry Pi, so you can have your own tiny 35USD cloud service running in minutes.

3. Auto backup of photos from your phone to your cloud without intervention.

4. Have your own Logo and Branding on the webpage and also can have your own domain name pointing to your server to make things more professional.

5. Best of all everything is completely free .... :)

I have installed Tonido on both Rasp Pi and Windows and both worked as expected. However with Rasp Pi, since its linux and does not have its own storage (except the meek sd card) you have to mount an external storage, like I did. (Synology NAS). This would require to run certain linux commands. But if you are running the server on windows, you dont need to do anything. Just install the application and you are good to go.

Few of the other features include .....

1. TonidoDrive:: Which allows to access your remote cloud server as a network drive on your Windows based PC

2. Tonido Sync Client:: Download and install the sync client on every computer to sync your files with your server. Much like DropBox or Google Drive client works.

3. No need for DDNS:: No need to have DDNS that you would point to your server. Tonido uses its own relay server to provide access to your cloud, so once you create an account, like in my case (sam9scloud) you can access your server via link http://<youraccountname> Which in my case is sam9scloud login


Here is what it looks like......
