    I hate to necro post (barely... =P), but I thought this might be of some use to you. Supports AD, etc. Albeit the costs for the clouds are not cheap by any means.

    We're getting 100mbit as well soon and it got me wondering if this was feasable.

    I still don't see any way to map a drive to a skydrive/dropbox account though

    Solutions do exist but aren't native and don't seem to be easily automated yet

    I gave Skydrive a go but its awful, you can't even upload whole folders and it has a 50mb limit.

    All I wanted to do was backup my photos, oh dear.

    I also tried mapping skydrive to a drive letter but got some weird error message when trying to copy. Gave up in the end.

    FAIL.

    Moodle 2.0 has plugins for external repositories, so teachers can use them to share resources.

    nitial plugins in 2.0 include: Alfresco, Amazon S3, Box.net, File system on Server, Flickr, Google Docs, MERLOT, Picasa, Recent Files, WebDAV servers, Wikimedia, Youtube. These are simple to develop, so many more are expected.

    This looks interesting. Allows mapping a range of different cloud services as a drive letter.

    Yes, Gladinet works. I have been using the free version on my home computer for a few weeks now. I can upload whole folders with no problems. I have it mapped to a skydrive account.

    A Microsoft repository plugin for Office 365 (via the SharePoint system) is looking unlikely though, which is a real shame

    If someone makes a Sharepoint repository maybe it could be modified to work with Office 365 but it's more in hope than expectation...

    I've been meaning to research iFolder. It looks neat.
    How did you get it running on Ubuntu? I only found SuSE references. Ideally I need it to run on Centos/RHEL

    Well a while ago i used this guide

    How to install iFolder on Ubuntu server

    i dont think it works anymore so i had to bodge it a little. I was using a vps anyway so if i got stuck i could just change to suse

    also here is some old but usefull info
