Have you looked at JungleDisk? I have never used Dropbox, but from what I can tell they are similar. JungleDisk works with S3 or RackSpace Cloud storage. You can store files encrypted or unencrypted. Everything is transmitted over SSL. My data can only be accessed with my S3 access keys. It can mount/map a drive, do automatic backups or keep directories in sync across multiple computers.

It does not look as easy as Dropbox (because there is a distinction between the JungleDisk software and the underlying storage), but it is not difficult either. I have been using it a little while and like it so far.

There is also no iPhone or Android app, but there is a pretty decent web interface.





Interesting. Do you know of any alternatives? One of the things I really like about JungleDisk is it uses _my_ S3 bucket. I have apps that use the data in my S3 bucket and it is also nice to be able to access it using JungleDisk.

Not the case any longer, iPhone app is available (I haven't used it yet): https://www.jungledisk.com/iphone_app_backup_share_files_man...

I'm sure an Android version is in the works.


Sounds interesting. If they produce an Android app I will give it a look.
