(Archived) putting the local database in the cloud, too

Recommended Posts

Sorry, I don't know any longer if this is only a dimwitted or already a tricky question:

After reading wide open databases and stumbling over jungledisk and dropbox cloud storage services in the thread I read a lot about the said services and just now wondered: If you can put the local db into a truecrypt container, can the same be done with a service which provides encrypted cloud file storage by providing a folder which behaves like a mounted directory (which is what dropbox and jungledisk do if I got them right).

on a slightly related note: isn't it strange how cloud computing turns our super-duper power machines into blunt ultra-thin clients? Deja vu... it's all so ...70s?

You can back up your local database files in lots of different online backup services, but this is different from using them as a live source for your data. Your primary database needs to reside on your local hard drive for performance and data integrity.
