Add Storj and Filebase as Backup options
I realise these things can be done with the generic S3 API Compatible settings - but I think there's some good karma value in having them specifically detailed and documented; in that their communities and products seem ethically aligned with Cloudron's aims and community, and will likely bring cross-pollination of champions for each.
Revisiting these, mentioning here in case it catches the eye of others interested in similar.
I was unable to get Filebase working. On a side note, they are a nightmare to deal with for simply deleting an account. Still hasn't happened yet. Boy do they really want me to stay...
Definitely frustrating anytime a service doesn't let you delete your own account.

I see https://www.storj.io/blog/introducing-filebase-to-the-storj-community but storj.io itself has a pricing page.
Just noticed filebase itself has a cloudron page - https://docs.filebase.com/configurations/third-party-configurations/backup-client-configurations/cloudron
@girish I believe they are separate, so need to be added separately as-such.
It seem that FileBase uses Storj as one of its layers, but adds additional features and redundancy beyond the Storj layer, hence the value-add higher pricing.
I just think both ethically aligned with the vision here, and having named support, as opposed to generic, is a nod to their efforts in providing a decentralised and competitive alternative to the incumbents.
I think recent events certainly show us that censorship is an ongoing concern, and replicated redundancy is a necessity to mitigate the risks of what might have been unlikely one day, and has suddenly happened another.
