ownCloud is an intuitive cloud file storing, file synching and sharing, data privacy and collaboration solution
It is the largest Open Source Content Collaboration Platform in the world
With over 50 million users across the globe, ownCloud enables Data Infrastructure Modernization, realized through a common file access layer regardless of where the data lives – in applications, object stores, on-premises storage or in the cloud – all completely managed, secured and controlled by IT.
ownCloud gives organizations the ability to access, control and manage files across applications, on-premises or cloud storage, or other data silos. Open by nature, ownCloud integrates into your existing infrastructure and offers the extensibility required to meet your specific needs.
Which one to choose?
Maybe your operations routinely generate so much data that your infrastructure growth appears unsustainable. In short you have data challenges and you suspect that you can address them by moving data to the cloud.
Selecting the right provider can seem daunting, but you can choose with more confidence by asking the right questions:
- What problems do you hope to solve by using a cloud provider?
- Where a cloud solution seems the better option, as it often is, what would be the alternative? Can you compare and estimate the benefit of choosing one over the other?
- Are you ready to adopt that solution not just technically but culturally? Can you imagine your organization using the solution consistently or might many users stick to prevailing methods of storing their data?
That's why ownCloud is the right solution
ownCloud Enterprise offers unsurpassed transparency, security and control and can be flexibly integrated into any existing environment. At the same time, users can access company files quickly and easily from anywhere and from any device. This increases both safety and productivity.
Wherever you are, your data is with you
When traveling, access ownCloud through your Android or iOS devices. Automatically upload pictures after taking them. Sync files at home or work with the desktop client keeping one or more local folders synchronized between devices.
And wherever you are, the web interface lets you view, share and edit your files alone or with others. Want to integrate third-party storage providers? With its open and flexible architecture, ownCloud offers implementations of Dropbox, Microsoft OneDrive and many more.
Syncing made easy
Automatically upload your pictures and videos and synchronize selected files and folders. Trace activities on your server and get notified of new shares and other important events. All data transfers are highly secured by SSL encryption, chunked uploads, checksum verifications, WebDAV optimizations and much more.
Completely secured: Store. Share. Work.
ownCloud is the open platform for more productivity and security in digital collaboration
Easy file sharing (internal and external)
ownCloud is the most straightforward way to file sync and share data. You don’t need to worry about where or how to access your files. With ownCloud all your data is where ever you are; accessible on all devices, any time.
ownCloud offers flexible solutions to organizations that need to share sensitive data internally and externally.
With functionalities such as collaborative editing, federated cloud sharing, and data infrastructure modernization, ownCloud is able to facilitate digital collaboration and increase productivity.
Maximum data security
At ownCloud, we take security very seriously and we know that it encompasses broad considerations, processes and technologies. ownCloud installs in your data center; managed by you, to your policies, following your procedures.
Encryption at rest secures your files on the server and still allows sharing among users. The File Firewall ensures all access requests meet rules set by the administrator, and existing infrastructure – such as intrusion detection and log management – can provide added layers of security. With WebDAV, mobile libraries and the ownCloud API as well as several enterprise-only apps, secure file sharing is in your control.
Platform independent access
ownCloud runs on a variety of hardware platforms or software architectures. As a platform-independent software you can use it in many different environments, requiring less planning and translation across an enterprise.
Collaborative editing of office documents
The Microsoft Office Online integration enables viewing and collaborative editing of documents, presentations and spreadsheets using the original Microsoft Office Online Editor within the ownCloud frontend in real time.
With ownCloud you can:
- invite your colleagues to work on or shared files
- send password protected public links so others can upload files to you
- get notified on your phone when you get a share from your own or another ownCloud server
- share with anybody via email using the guests feature.
ownCloud provides powerful permission management tools to control exactly who can access your files.
Seamless integration via open API
ownCloud’s open architecture and APIs allow IT to easily add corporate branding, and extend core functionality as needed to meet the company’s evolving needs. From enterprise directories to SAML, SharePoint or Windows network drives, ownCloud allows you to leave data where it lives while exposing secure access to users on any device.
ownCloud Mobile apps
Access, sync and upload your data on the go. Mobile clients are available for Android and iOS. As they do for many cloud storage solutions, the smartphone apps provide a simple and friendly user experience, along with useful features, such as automatic photo upload. ownCloud lets you access your files through a browser interface, too.
Improve productivity with powerful features
to optimise your workflow and save time every day
LOGGING & AUDITING
Admins can log account level activities such as logins, file sharing activity, file updates and more, giving admins the information they need for compliance reporting and auditing of ownCloud.
FEDERATED CLOUD SHARING
With Federated Cloud Sharing from ownCloud, all organizations can maintain their individual control while sharing designated files and folders across time zones and geographies, all while maintaining the access at any time, from any device.
FILE SHARING WITH GUESTS
Users can also share files and folders with guest users. To do so, your ownCloud administrator will need to have installed the Guest application. If it’s already installed, in the User and Groups field of the Sharing panel, type the email address of a user who is not already a user in your ownCloud installation.
Files Drop is the write-only upload addition to ownCloud. It is what it sounds like – anonymous users can now drag a file into the upload-only interface and drop it, and the file will be uploaded to ownCloud.
Instead of attachments, the Outlook Plug-in automatically adds links to the corresponding file in ownCloud, without the user having to change his normal workflow. The Plug-in is fully integrated into Outlook, easy to use and works with secure SSL encryption.
With ownCloud, you can also leverage storage that already exists; FTP, Swift, S3, Dropbox and more. Administrators can decide to store the most sensitive data on-premises and less sensitive data in the cloud while making all of your files available through a single interface and enabling compliance with your chosen security and governance policies.
