There is a free tier on AWS S3. Idk how much the limit is but you can set up your own cloud that way too.. syncthing should work with it well
There are workarounds. Some people from the community have created FUSE drivers that allow you to mount your cloud storage as a drive.Since no cloud storage provides Linux native support

FUSE is just a virtual filesystem. I don't think you'd need to use it directly, rather you'd probably be using some implementation of it that someone wrote around certain file systems. How to use each implementation is generally given in the readme file for each project. Some implementations I have already listed in my above post. For other cloud storage providers, you'll have to search and see whether anyone implemented a solution.Hi Desmond,
Can you link me a place to get started with FUSE ?
FUSE is available for all distros, even the ones you run in a docker container. But there are no dedicated images as such only for FUSE. In fact, docker itself uses OverlayFS in the host OS for managing its virtual storages. But this has nothing to do with mounting cloud based storage.Are there any docker packages for it ?
So I went over the FUSE for OneDrive. I saw this warning:
I would say do it in a limited manner only.Ransomware attacks are commonly increasing nowadays & just for this reason I would not rely only on syncing/always connected usb backups.A member's pc here was infected with ransomware which also encrypted the backup in connected usb drives making entire data gone( krusop ransomeware ). Better keep a habit of manually uploading files for backup once a week(& of course anything extremely important then backup manually immediately) & sync the same set in another online storage account(assuming you get the 6 person office 365 home version) so in worst case scenario you only lose 7 days of backup.Can I sync files on OneDrive and is there a good guide to allow me to do that?
AWS S3 is meant for corporate use not your casual/typical user.It does looks pretty cheap & that's why many companies use it but go to any community with users uploading large amount of data & almost everybody picks either google drive or similar storage option but rarely amazon S3.I would like to chime in and say, if not paying for your own cloud storage in DigitalOcean, etc, and for the purposes of archiving and stuff, why not use AWS s3? Infrequent access looks like its pretty cheap. And as for linux syncing, things built around FUSE should be nice.
Right now, I have a home server I use for my "cloud" needs, which as of now, amount to just having networked access to my data, and I useto manage files on my server.Code:
Just see this & you should be able to tell it isn't a good option for you: AWS S3: understanding cloud storage costs and how to saveCan you go about how to buy storage on AWS? It seemed pretty confusing to get into.
Also does it provide any trial before buying/billing?
