Private Cloud Storage System


Cloud storage is a model of computer data storage in which the digital data is stored in logical pools. Cloud storage services can be accessed through OWNCLOUD API (Application Program Interface) . OWNCLOUD is a suite of client–server software for creating and using file hosting services. OWNCLOUD is free and open-source, and thereby allows anyone to install and operate it without charge on a private server.
In our project we are going to develop our own Private Cloud Storage using Linux server. Our private cloud adoption will help us to reduce costs in many areas. An important objective is reduction of operational costs, which we can achieve by choosing a low-maintenance platform. Because of the usage of a Linux server the security is high.


The development of private cloud storage is cost efficient and it is fully based on an open source components. Here there is no need to develop a specific server for a cloud, because Linux operating systems contain inbuilt web servers (Apache server). Regular maintenance of a server is not required. Port forwarding is enabled without any cost.


Linux is a family of free and open-source software operating systems based on the Linux kernel. Ubuntu is a free and open-source Linux distribution based operating system. A Linux server is a high-powered variant of the Linux open source operating system that's designed to handle the more demanding needs of business applications such as network and system administration, database management and Web services.

In computer networking, port forwarding or port mapping is an application of network address translation (NAT) that redirects a communication request from one address and port number combination to another while the packets are traversing a network gateway, such as a router or firewall.

  • If you've researched Linux on the internet, it's highly probable that you have come across Ubuntu.
  • Linux Mint Cinnamon. For years, Linux Mint has been the number one Linux distribution on Distrowatch.
  • Zorin OS. A majority of computer users are Windows users.
  • Elementary OS

    Private Cloud Storage System


It's easy to setup the cloud storage. It has private server and cloud access, unlimited expandable storage, it's easy to share with other users, has long range connectivity and less maintenance. We can also create a portable cloud storage system by using Raspberry Pi module.
