With the current price cut at Dropbox and the fast dropping of storage prices. I wonder if the steps to keep people out of my business are worth it.
Currently I’m running ownCloud on a VPS for $5 a month since my own in house server isn’t feasible. And for 20gigs, with a percentage of that being the OS and software. Plus I have to deal with day to day administration of it.
On the other hand I can get 1tb from either Google or Dropbox for $10 a month.
Being that I’m not a CIA operative or corporate leaker, I don’t really have anything to hide. And my understanding is that the only thing looking at my data are algorithms. As long as there aren’t people oogling pics of my kids and such I don’t really have a problem with it.
I guess I was just wondering what everyones view of privacy versus $ is. I personally am not a rich fella and hosting Tons of Data on my own isn’t in my best interest financially.
