    Drop box like service?

    I want to offer a drop box like service. Where people will pay me for xxx amount of hard drive in the cloud. They will then be able to upload anything that is allowed. It will be a private secured encrypted account. It's more like a service where people have their personal locker for any and all types of files. Then I'll also offer back up solutions.

    But is there some type of software or even web script that is very secured and reliable with lots of features. It would also be great if I can customize the script easy.

    Many thanks much appreciated.

    The best scripts are written in-house so wont be available to buy. Problem is what is your Niche going to be?

    I like https://www.wetransfer.com/ personally, great system.

    I have a program called OwnCloud on my servers I just mainly use it as I can get a windows application and share the files with myself on different machines.

    I haven't had an issue with them yet.

    No limitation at service scope but promise you always the best price for whatever service level required.

    www.livedrive.com but you won't be able to control the servers. You'll just be able to resell it or resell white label.

    We switched from ownCloud to Bittorrent Sync and haven't looked back. It lacks a web interface for the end user, but the apps are on-par with Dropbox.

    Their Linux server run's headless with a simple configuration file. Should be easy to build your own scripts around it for provisioning.

    We just rolled out Anchor. It connects with our ticketing/billing system so it was a no brainer for us. Great web interface and applications.

    DriveHQ has a function like this. I use them for few months and I am quite happy. They also have a limited space plan (I think its 1GB) which you can use before you buy.

    ownCloud (https://owncloud.org/). It's open-source, extensible through plugins and comes with Desktop Sync Client compatible with all major OS.

    We looked at ownCloud but it quickly got very expensive if you wanted any type of support and/or branding. They want to charge you 10K-15K upfront, then an annual fee for support.

    I've been a dropbox, Box.com and Google drive person for a while, lately i've decided to pull all my stuff from those services and setup a owncloud server (testing), just wanna control my own media you know.

    I would suggest you give owncloud a test run, very easy to install on any server and you look like you run servers all day. There are many plugins for owncloud, one that I really like which allows you to upload music and play right in the browser without any other action required. Take a look at the feature set. http://owncloud.org/features/

    They have a community edition so you can download and put on a server, setup on internet and give it a whirl. I suppose you can offer the community edition on a VPS and sell to clients. The skin is easy to change, so you can add their logo and give them the colour of their choice.

    Owncloud is great if you have a server. There is an app for almost every os and mobile os.
    WebHosting should be easy, it should just work.
