Credits to Marcelo Waiseman. His article on the process was of great help. Here's the link to his solution https://coderwall.com/p/rwxnma . Forgot to add it after so much edits. :(
For me personally (developers opinion), it's because of the free space and the cli option it offers. :)
Here's how you go about installing it on your linux server

- Download the linux client, unzip and run it.
Shell Commands :
wget --no-check-certificate https://copy.com/install/linux/Copy.tgz tar -zxf Copy.tgz cd copy
the 'copy' folder contains the x86 and x8664 folders. Choose your platform. I run a RHEL 6, 64 bit so the x8664 folder is my option
cd x86_64 ./CopyConsole -u=emailyouregisteredwith -r=/home/yourlinuxusername/copy/ -p=passwordyouregisteredwith
Let it run until you see something like these :
**Staring copy...success** **Logged in as user: 'emailyouregisteredwith'** **Copy folder is: '/home/yourlinuxusername/copy'** **Press enter to exit**
- Press enter to exit and the following command to make it run continuously and check for file changes :
Shell Command :
nohup ./CopyConsole &
Voila!! you now have copy.com running 'forever' on your server. You can navigate to /home/yourlinuxusername/copy/ to gain access to your files.
With this, you can easily transfer your deployable packages as a .zip file to your amazon ec2 server instances or any other cloud servers you wanna deploy apps to.
