A self-hosted option for operating your own cloud environment, dCloud Self-Hosted (dCSH) is now available for users of dSupportSuite!
Utilizing your own cloud reduces security risks and increases speed of cloud operations within dSupportSuite, as the information is on YOUR server and not mine (which shares bandwidth and processor power with other users of dSupportSuite and d7.)
The only requirement for dCloud Self-Hosted is an internet exposed FTP server capable of FTP Passive mode. This can be a any OS, but Windows is preferred for future functionality which may require server side software that would only be compatible with Windows. A server OS is not required, a workstation OS will work just fine. You may use Windows Server’s IIS for the FTP component, or preferably FileZilla Server for Windows.
See the subsection FTP Server Setup for an idea of just how easy it gets. For existing users of dSupportSuite and dCloud, you will need to also visit the Migrating from dCloud subsection.
dCloud Self-Hosted is included when you purchase a dCloud Lifetime Subscription either by itself or as part of a bundle. If you have already purchased a dCloud Lifetime Subscription prior to the release of dCloud Self-Hosted, you may contact me for a product key that will allow you usage of dCloud Self-Hosted.
Sorry, d7 functionality for dCloud Self-Hosted is not yet available.
