I have zero background in computers and i dont understand technical terms and such but i love to be tinkering. I was wondering if i can create a “cloud storage server” using linode or such. And if yes how?
initially this is what i had typed as i was researching
" I have been using iCloud for quite a while now to store everything that i might need anywhere and as a backup to all the work/academic work that i never want to loose. I’ll be done with college in the next few months and i am planning to ditch my laptop (MacBook Pro 2017) for a variety of reasons. I had been using icloud, as the computers i used in college are macs, and i have an ipad pro that i use all the time, also from what i know its more private thatn Google Drive and Onedrive. I hate google. Once I graduate I will be having a linux box or something, so iCloud isn’t any convinient for me anymore. I would like to know of a cloud storage service which is private, preferably opensource, and does not claim any rights to use my data for their needs.
I am not a data hoarder, so I dont need a lot of storage, sub 500GB storage works great for me. I am ready to pay the equivalent of $8-10 per month for the storage. "
