we created a solution to sync seafile data with an external storage like Strato HiDrive. The task was not only to backup the seafile-blocks but to make it possible to access and work with the files also on the external storage.
In the end we call this solution “seafile high availability lite” because it is possible to work on both data pools (seafile or the external storage). The seafile-cli takes care that the libraries are in sync.
I wrote a (german) article about this approach and we created a github project:
- Article: https://de.seafile.com/hochverfuegbarkeit-light-datenreplikation-mit-dem-seafile-cli-client/
- Github: https://github.com/datamate-rethink-it/cli-autosync
Please try it out and send me your feedback.
