UbuntuOne

Posted on September 22, 2011

I was hoping, now that UbuntuOne has a (beta) Windows client, that I’d have a good cross-platform cloud spot to save files to.  Well, that’s not working out so far.  the syncing, on BOTH the Windows side AND the Linux side is painfully slow, if it happens at all.  I’ve had to kill the sync daemon on the Linux side to get it to acknowledge that it is indeed not “up-to-date” and download what’s missing.  On the Windows side, it just seems to creep along taking FOREVER to update – even with tweaking the available upload/download speed settings.  As much as I’d like to, I don’t think that I can even blame this on the Windows client.  Another that that I’ve noticed that there seems to be a noticeable slowdown, on both machines, when running the UbuntuOne client.

The other issue is the apparent lack of encryption of the stored data.  I know that’s pretty common for most of the cloud options, but it would be nice to have.

I guess I’ll stick to my personal server folder with SSH access and encryption/decryption locally.
