Syncing your files to Arctic Cloud Object storage using Rclone


A typical use case can be to set up an offsite sync for various purposes such as offsite backup, added security or just a synced folder. We have here chosen to connect to Arctic Cloud object storage that automatically makes 4 replicas of all files for added security placed in two different availability zones. This is best practice for file storage security.

Rclone is a free, open source command line utility to sync files and directories to and from cloud storage. It supports several cloud storage providers, and client side encryption. Rclone can be used with most operating systems, including Windows, Linux and macOS. Rclone can also be used as an excellent tool for file transfer between cloud solutions.
