I’m new to Nextcloud and would like to start using it.
For a first and simple start I am considering buying a pre-configured box, as I actually would need to buy new hardware anyways.
Can you recommend some specific alternatives?
My use case will be:
Files: <500GB total (Yearly growth: 5%)
Sync: ~10GB/month ~peak days ~2GB
Calendar, Tasks, Contacts, Keeweb
If there already exists such a section on this forum or a well documented blog or similar out there, I haven’t found something on a lower level than deploying recommendations and setup instructions/tutorials/how-tos…I’m more interested in a as out-of-the-box as possible solution.
Thanks everyone and I hope to meet you all around here again.
1: check - 1 TB
2: only depending upon your personal up/downlink
4: check, check, check, check
only obstacle: it could happen that you won’t get anymore of those - and if you’ll be happy to get one, still: they work with a rp3 as well and i’d run a nextcloudpi-image on it (rather than the snapversion that is/was delivered with it)
in general there’s a pretty discussion going on here on where to run NC on the cheapest available hardware.
i dunno about your environment… if you already have a server running or how much bucks you’re willing to spend on new hardware…
but i can promise you that NC is usually quite easy to install. if you’d decide upon a standalone-version (hardware) why not trying setting it up on a rp3. all you need would be an rp3, a sd-card, a powerconnector and an external (usb)hd. it’s really easy flashing the nextcloudpi-image to your sd-card, entering this one into your rp3 and then give it a run.
nextcloud box would have put all of the mentioned hardware (except rp3) into a nice box. nutting more.
give ist a try. will cost you around 100-120 €, i guess (depending upon the hd you’re gonna use) - rp3 should be around 35€, a case for it ca 5-10€, a sd-card (4gb would be enough around 7€… so there you go.
i can’t tell you anything about the ones from your links.
