 +====== OpenDocMan Off-Site Storage Usage Overview ======
  
 +The philosophy of our off-site filesystem is openness and flexibility. Your account is accessed by the ssh, ftp and WebDAV protocols - open standards that can be extended and customized.
 +
 +===== Examples for Microsoft Windows Users =====
 +
 +Windows users can map their off-site filesystem to a drive letter on their system, and use it just like any other local drive. This is an extremely simple and powerful integration method, and can be set up in moments.
 +
 +Windows users can also set up [[windows_rsync|powerful and efficient automated backups]] of their system with the industry standard rsync tool.
 +
 +Advanced uses, such as remote encrypted filesystems,​ are supported.
 +
 +A full [[windows_integration|Windows Integration Guide]], with pros and cons of various methods and detailed instructions,​ can be found [[windows_integration|here]].
 +
 +===== Examples for Mac OSX Users =====
 +
 +
 +Your ODM Off-Site filesystem can be [[mac_integration|opened as a normal folder]], right in the Finder. You may use it in OSX just like any other folder. No software installation is necessary for this.
 +
 +OSX also includes a standard complement of Unix tools, including rsync, scp, ftp and sftp. Therefore [[mac_integration|simple and powerful incremental backups]] can be implemented without installing additional software.
 +
 +Advanced uses, such as [[mac_integration|remote encrypted filesystems]],​ are supported.
 +
 +A full [[mac_integration|OSX Integration Guide]], with pros and cons of various methods and detailed instructions,​ can be found here.
 +
 +===== Examples for Linux/Unix Users =====
 +
 +
 +Standard command line tools like rsync, scp, sftp, and ftp are supported, as well as more advanced tools such as Unison, rdiff-backup and duplicity.
 +
 +Further, with the use of sshfs, Linux and FreeBSD users can mount their ODM Off-Site filesystem on a local mount point, and use it just as they would any other mounted filesystem. We have a Linux sshfs HOWTO and a FreeBSD sshfs HOWTO.
 +
 +Using rsync in a cron job is the fastest and most efficient way for Linux and Unix users to perform incremental backups, and scp/sftp can be used to manipulate individual files from wherever you happen to be.
 +
 +The WebDAV accessibility of your ODM OSS filesystem makes browsing in Konqueror and other WebDAV clients possible.
 +
 +Remote encrypted filesystems can also be maintained on your ODM OSS filesystem.
