What?

So I have been looking for a new, cheap and decently secure backup service I can dump all my servers to and came across hubiC by OVH. It's a "cloud" based web storage service that really works for long term, incremental backups.
Link: https://hubic.com/en/offers/

NOTE: hubiC is rate limited to 10Mbit/s - if this is a big issue for you, look for something else.

Prices
25GB free
100GB 1euro/pm
10TB 5euro/pm

Setting up a fuse mount in Debian

Firstly, go to https://hubic.com/home/browser/developers/ and create a new application. Call it something unique and use "http://localhost/" for domain redirection. Take note of the client_id and client_secret generated as we will need it.

apt-get update && apt-get upgrade
apt-get install git nano gcc make curl libfuse-dev pkg-config libcurl4-openssl-dev libxml2-dev libssl-dev libjson0 libjson0-dev libmagic-dev
cd /hubicfuse
./configure
make install
./hubic_token
client_id (the app's id): your client_id from above

client_secret (the app's secret): your client secret from above

redirect_uri (declared at app's creation): http://localhost/

Get account usage (r): r

Get all published links in one call (r): r

Get OpenStack credentials, eg. access to your files (r): r

Send activation email (w): r

Add new/Get/Delete published link (wrd): wrd

user_login: your hubiC email

user_pwd: your hubiC password
copy the client_id, client_secret and refresh_token it spits out and put it into a file called .hubicfuse in the $HOME directory of the user you will be using, for the sake of this tutorial I'll use root (don't use root...)


nano /root/.hubicfuse
Paste in:

client_id=ABC

client_secret=123

refresh_token=XYZ
mkdir /mnt/hubic
hubicfuse /mnt/hubic -o noauto_cache,sync_read,allow_other
Your hubiC fuse is now done and mounted at /mnt/hubic

I prefer syncthing - keeps all my devices in sync and is self hosted.

Hubic is more of a dropbox type replacement....

Just Duplicity to /mnt/hubic

and you're sorted

I am not reading good reviews....but will test it over the weekend.
if anyone wanna help with me out with more space, my referral is: MJFNTH
Most will complain about the 10Mbit cap, so use case dependent. For long term throw and forget, it works.
