I am new to this site, and new to OwnCloud.
I recently started to research personal cloud solutions, being tired of paying for cloud solutions. I am currently using Dropbox for basically all files and documents I am using, safe to say that every single non-software related file I have is located in the Dropbox folder. This is a setup I like, since I am moving a lot between computers, and also for security. I once lost my laptop, but I didn't loose any work, since everything was pushed to the cloud.
I have read a lot about owncloud, and looked through the administration manual, but I haven't quite found the solution I am looking for. I want to use a raspberry pi for my cloud, since it is a small and simple device, and doesn't draw much power. I have seen multiple site online describing how this is done, BUT my requirement is a bit more complex. My cloud will hold a lot of important files, including several thousand photos I have taken. Today I have these photos on a local HDD and on the cloud as well.
WHAT I WANT: A raspberry pi powered owncloud server at my house that I can use just like dropbox, that is COMBINED with another raspberry pi powered owncloud server at some other place (parents house or something). These servers should mirror each other or something like that so that if either place burns down or blows away in a storm, the data is intact and the cloud is running at the second location. Even better with three locations, but two is sufficient.
Is it possible to make such a redundant system? If not: What is possible with respect to protection against a hardware failure.
Thanks for all thoughts and recommendations
