Using rclone on Linux to Automate Backups to Google Drive

As of now, Google has yet to release an official backup/sync client for Linux, and as a frequent WSL2 user, I was after a solution that would allow automated backups to Google drive from the WSL2 Linux file system/distro.

I’m a big fan of both Windows & Linux, and the evolution of WSL2 (with an actual Linux kernel) is making it easier to work in an almost “real” Linux environment without the need for third-party virtualization software. Using rclone with WSL2 gives me the option of restoring project files from a recent backup should I accidentally trash my WSL2 Linux distro.

The following write-up describes an approach for using an open source package, rclone, to automate backups from Linux to Google drive.

Download/install rclone:

To download/install rclone:

$ cd $HOME
$ curl https://rclone.org/install.sh | sudo bash
...
rclone v1.53.1 has successfully installed.

This installs the binary to location /usr/bin/rclone.

Before being able to configure access for rclone to our target Google Drive account, we need to enable the Google Drive API and create appropriate credentials.

Google's TPU's being primed for the Quantum Jump

The liquid-cooled Tensor Processing Units, built to slot into server racks, can deliver up to 100 petaflops of compute.

The liquid-cooled Tensor Processing Units, built to slot into server racks, can deliver up to 100 petaflops of compute.

As the world is gearing towards more automation and AI, the need for quantum computing has also grown exponentially. Quantum computing lies at the intersection of quantum physics and high-end computer technology, and in more than one way, hold the key to our AI-driven future.

Quantum computing requires state-of-the-art tools to perform high-end computing. This is where TPUs come in handy. TPUs or Tensor Processing Units are custom-built ASICs (Application Specific Integrated Circuits) to execute machine learning tasks efficiently. TPUs are specific hardware developed by Google for neural network machine learning, specially customised to Google’s Machine Learning software, Tensorflow.

The liquid-cooled Tensor Processing units, built to slot into server racks, can deliver up to 100 petaflops of compute. It powers Google products like Google Search, Gmail, Google Photos and Google Cloud AI APIs.

Get Google Trends using Python

In this post, we will show how we can use Python to get data from Google Trends. Let’s have a look at the top trending searches for today in the US (14th of March, 2020). As we can see, the top search is about Coronavirus tips with more than 2M searches, and at the 7th position is Rick Pitino with around 100K searches.

Python package for getting the Google Trends

We will use the pytrends package which is an unofficial API for Google Trends which allows a simple interface for automating downloading of reports from Google Trends. The main feature is to allow the script to login to Google on your behalf to enable a higher rate limit. At this point, I want to mention that I couldn’t use this package and I created a new anaconda environment installing the pandas 0.25 version.

You can install the pytrends package with pip:

pip install pytrends
