Nadia mentioned that there might be some under- or un-used edgeryder server space that we might be able to access? I would love to have place to back up all the video I have been shooting.
We have 450 GiB of space free, but it depends on your actual requirements if this is an adequate resource for a backup strategy. For example, if it’s ready-made public videos, a video hosting service like YouTube is probably better, and if it’s large amounts of raw uncut material, then a local backup strategy (two external disks in different places) would be better because of potentially slow-ish Internet connection on your side and the added workload on my side for keeping a large chunk of data secure, migrating it when we migrate servers etc…
But it depends – the Edgeryders server is certainly up to be used by the community wherever it is the right tool So just tell me what exactly you need, and let’s see what is the best tool for it.
just a back up
All the finished videos are on Vimeo- but those are compressed versions so it would be nice to have the full quality videos backed up somewhere in addition to my external drive. I keep all the raw footage I am working with on an external drive as well which I will use for editing- but it would be good to have a place to back it up. In both cases having these videos in a place which others can access if they need it seems like a good idea.
