Amazon S3 replaced ownCloud?
ownCloud is a popular file hosting cloud storage software. Like Dropbox, you can sync files to your private server. Data placed in ownCloud server are accessible from the mobile and desktop apps.
Amazon S3 also works as a high-speed, web-based service for online backup and data archive. It’s intentionally designed with a minimal feature set and was created to make web-scale computing easier for developers.
Since these two services seem to have the similar utilities, some people think it’s unnecessary to employ both of them. Meanwhile, backing up ownCloud to S3 or conversely through iterative downloading and reuploading will cost a lot of time. Anyway, it’s not bad to keep a duplicate backup on another storage for the sake of improved security and privacy. While ownCloud with S3 integration is not as difficult as you thought if you hire the free transfer online tool -- MultCloud.
