Mounting Your OwnCloud On SIRIS On Datto Drive


1. Scope

This article covers the procedure of mounting an ownCloud-enabled SIRIS device on to Datto Drive to provide a seamless single view panel for users.

2. Background

Although Datto Drive offers a secure place to store data and provides encryption as an extension to protect all files, some regulations or policies may require businesses to keep certain data on premises. Or if a business already has ownCloud on SIRIS configured, they can take advantage of the features available on Datto Drive that is currently unavailable on the SIRIS (i.e., WebDAV support). A business can utilize both services as a hybrid to balance between compliance and cost.

3. Installing the External Storage Support App

From the Datto Drive dashboard, click on the four-squared menu on the upper right and click on Apps.


Click on Not Enabled on the left pane, search for External Storage Support, and click on Enable.


4. Mounting ownCloud on Datto Drive

Once enabled, click on your administrator name on the upper right and select Admin. Click on External Storage on the left and you will see the options to configure an external storage. Under the External Storage menu, select Add Storageand then ownCloud.


You will be presented a couple of configuration options including the folder name that will be seen from the dashboard,authentication preference, URL of your ownCloud instance, remote subfolder located on the ownCloud instance, whether you want to use secured HTTP (HTTPS), your login credentials, and which group or user you'd like to share it out to.


In order to grab the URL, you will need to go on the web interface of your SIRIS. Click on Configure and then Device Settings. From there, you will see your ownCloud URL. 


Copy and paste this URL into the URL textbox. Once you fill in your details, you will see a green light on the left indicating a successful connection to your ownCloud instance.


You will then see the newly accessible folder that takes you to your ownCloud instance on the files page.
