As I wrote a few days ago in Private Cloud Computing, I’ve been playing around with ways of creating my own private cloud computing environment. Yesterday while working at home I came up with an improvement in my setup. At first I was accessing the work files on my HP Mini 5101 using Windows File Sharing. It worked OK, but I soon realized that when I hit the road again (I’m in NJ right now at a client site) that this scheme would quickly breakdown. So, I installed Windows Live Sync on my HP and our monster LX6810 desktop system and set them both up to automatically sync my work files between the two systems. This free software keeps all of the files completely in sync between the two machines, and it even works over the Internet and through corporate file walls. I verified this by logging into the LX6810 from my HP Mini using LogMeIn, and sure enough all the files I’ve been working on here in NJ have been updated in WV, too!
