Hi all,

Looking for some software (prefrably open source/cheap) that will allow us to have a "local" online storage system with basic username/password security.

Something like "GDrive" or DropBox but on a smaller scale and "local".

Anyone know of anything ?

TIA

I haven't used it but this looks good: https://www1.crashplan.com/business/index.html
There's another one I've looked at called Ahsay which also looked good: http://www.ahsay.com/en/home/index.html

So what are you trying to do? Run a server in the office that provides remote users/machines access to files as pseudo file system?

Something like this...

A simple document management system (DMS) that you can install on a file server at work, preferably open source or free or pretty cheap. 

The file server will be running a webserver (either IIS or Apache) and a database (MySQL or SQL Express).

You want a nice web 2.0ish UI that easy to use. 

You want to be able to load your docs into system in a not to tedious way, setup some users, setup permissions etc. 

Your users (Mac, Linux, Windows) can then login to the local website using their browser of choice (IE, Safari, Firefox, Google Chrome) and do stuff (search, browse, download, upload and "admin" files) depending on their permissions.

You don't want to use sharepoint because you don't have a windows domain environment and have a few Mac's/Linux machines and non MS browsers (Is this still a valid reason to not use Sharepoint thesedays??) or maybe you don't have any spare 2003 or 2008 servers and want to use Linux or something.

I'm looking for something similar too.  I think I might have to built it when I get some free time as I haven't found anything that didn't seem crap.

Is this what your looking for?

Cloud computing

Ubuntu 9.04 Server Edition makes it easy to experiment with cloud computing. Eucalyptus, an open source technology which is included in Ubuntu as a technology preview, enables you to use your own servers to deploy, experiment and test your own private cloud that matches the Amazon EC2 API. You can dynamically create virtual machines, configure multiple clusters into a single Cloud and even provide an EBS (elastic block storage) equivalent and an S3 compatible storage manager.

http://datalock.co.nz/ might be what you're after, hosted locally... if Maxnet is your ISP then your traffic to and from their service is free too.
