Rclone

Teleon uses Rclone and RcloneBrowser for cloud connectivity and its management.

You can find the details via Rclone web portal, Rclone github project, and RcloneBrowser github project.

Rclone cloud connectivity is used in SyncOS and SyncOffice-VA.

A typical scenario for SyncOS cloud arrangement is as follows:

  • Use Rclone/RcloneBrowser under Windows to set up and configure a new Rclone cloud remote. Such remote could be a FTP remote drive, a Dropbox storage, etc.
  • After set up and cloud connection proved, use its configuration file rclone.conf for SyncOS. Copy this rclone.conf to SyncOffice Manager's folder.
  • Under SyncOffice Manager, import the rclone.conf, encrypt it into rclone.conf.tes file and copy it to created SyncOS Live USB drive, alone with encrypted certificate file.
  • When boot up SyncOS, its start up procedure will search for this rclone.conf.tes file, decipher it, copy decrypted rclone.conf to SyncOS embedded Rclone application's folder and use it as configuration file to connect the cloud remote.

Rclone is an open source, multi threaded, command line computer program to manage or migrate content on cloud and other high latency storage. RcloneBrowser is a simple cross platform GUI for Rclone command line tool.

Rclone capabilities include sync, transfer, crypt, cache, union, compress and mount. The Rclone can support at least fifty backend. You can find these supported backend in the Rclone website.

Rclone has been called "The Swiss Army Knife of cloud storage", credit to its wide range of support and capability for main stream cloud connectivity. This is also the same reason behind the SyncOS/SyncOffice-VA's adoption.

Rclone is under active development. Its supported cloud storages are also dynamic and under constant evolutions. If you find any type of storage backend doesn't work under SyncOS/SyncOffice-VA scenario, please kindly report to Teleon for improvement.
