$5 for 250GB of Cloud Storage? I Think Yes!

As you may know, I recently switched my website over to Digital Ocean. Over the last few weeks, I have been looking at cloud storage that could be a good alternative to Dropbox for Linux.

After looking around I discovered a service that Digital Ocean offers called spaces which offers 250GB of storage with 1TB worth of Bandwith, perfect for daily storage.

Managing your own cloud storage comes with a fair bit of responsibility, it’s not like using Dropbox or Google Drive because you can’t delete your entire Google Drive without removing your entire Google account, unlike using Spaces where you can delete it quite easily. But the other thing to remember is that you will have to find a way to mount this to your local file directory.

s3fs in Linux is a way to do it, but I am yet to successfully do it, so if you get it going let me know!
