At 19:28 Local time today My Pi Net node Epsilon came online at my friends house and started syncing with the rest of the network. This is the first remote node in my private cloud network. This note was built using a raspberry pi 2 and a 1 TB USB hard drive that I had lying around. For my data replication I am using BitTorrent Sync 2.x. In order to get the Pi working I had to learn a bit of Linux. This is the first major milestone in my project to ensure my personal data is backed up offsite from my apartment using a secured private cloud and not leveraging any potentially insecure public clouds.
Next up in building out this network will be a second off-site location. I need to finish setting up second Pi and have that node live to have the network be complete.
