The ideal workflow – Simplified. V2

Okay guys and gals, here’s my v2.  workflow solution for any device and I mean any.  Thanks to the guys over at Resilio formerly Bit-torrent p2p.  Continuing from v1. This method has been working for over a year and does wonders.  If you are like me, I use a mix of servers, but have a dedicated server and storage pool / lake (soon to be an ocean) for just my photos.  The following will show you an outline of requirements for the initial setup and configuration will vary.

Requirements – Mandated

  1. Resilio – Client and Server
    Server can even be your main computer at home.  but a server itself would be only beneficial, it can also be a Linux, BusyBox NAS server as the following are supported {Synology, QNAPP, WD, Seagate, NETGEAR, Asustor, Drobo, FreeNAS}
  2. Download the client here for mobile devices {Win10Mobile, Android, iPhone, Amazon}
  3. Download for your Server / Desktop here
  4. Download for your NAS here
  5. Skip part 4 if you do not have a NAS
  6. Once downloaded start the setup process, once done login in with the setup configuration that you had chosen for password and username.  Once done make sure that the server is running and that you are able to reach the server at via browser.  If you can, start making those share folders.
  7. *Important*  You may need to open up ports on your router, if you are not comfortable with doing do a google search for your router or how-to and if your ISP allows it,  and if ISP allows it then you’re in luck, you now need to configure your router.

    “I am not liable for any misconfiguration and or data lost or any mal-event to your system, this is all up to you and serves only as a guide.” 

  8. Install the client on your mobile device.  Scan the bar code and or share URL once the folder is made.  wha-la that’s it now I can transfer any file back home directly with / without a 3rd party provider, I say with / without cause I can use the cloud for e-discovery.
  9. Last but not least, you can sync up the files to a folder in your DAM server, LR Catalog, Loose folder for Bridge, etc.  “no-limit”
  10. So for me, Mobile–>DAM server & Storage Pool<–> LR Catalog w/OneDrive on every device so I can access the catalog anytime, once on-premise or VPN tunneled in I can access my assets anytime. <–> Do it all over again.
  11. In the near future I plan to have only 2016 Server running both MSFT / Windows Services with my DAM and Storage pool via SDS {Software Defined Storage} with SDN {Software Defined Network}, which then I can run workloads for both Windows and Linux services and tie it all, along with ADFS or Azure AD, IIS, Apache, or NGIX, SQL server {Win or NIX}, etc. but you get the point.

Later guys.
