Your choice is to install NubiSave by yourself, install a pre-packaged version or run it without any risks with simulated cloud providers from a live distribution.
Warning: This is a research prototype, not a production-level software product. Never use NubiSave for precious data until and unless we explicitly recommend so! It WILL eat your cats and babies!

Code repository

The NubiSave code is maintained in a git repository. It is publicly accessible for reading and developer-accessible over SSH for writing.


For the time being, we offer an experimental generic Debian package which works well enough for Debian stable (squeeze, wheezy), recent Ubuntus (lucid, maverick, natty) and SPACEflight (1.0 beta5/6/7). The package is designed to work on all architectures, but currently contains libraries specific to x86 and x86_64. Install with dpkg -i nubisave_*_all.deb followed by apt-get -f install to resolve all dependencies.

On SPACEflight, SPACE is obviously pre-installed already; for the other distributions, you'll need to activate the SPACE package repository first if you want NubiSave to find storage providers automatically from a local registry. Alternatively, use a global storage service registry/spot market installation, or configure custom storage services through standard protocols by yourself.

Live Demonstrator

NubiSave ships as part of the »π-Box«, the research demonstrator system for community-connected personal secure clouds. This system does not require network access and just simulates cloud storage providers with local directories. Information and download links can be found on the π-Box page. NubiSave is added by the script fill-demonstrator-nubisave(-system).sh from the π-Box live demonstrator build scripts.
