Pixeom makes it easy to set up your own private cloud services

We live in a world where convenience comes at the cost of privacy. Public cloud services make our lives so much easier but the companies that own these services (Google, Facebook, etc.) offer this convenience in exchange for selling our information to the highest bidder.
