Meer informatie over ownCloud

Pluspunten:

The support costs of the simple ownCloud web interface with drag-drop file uploading were one-time only. Performance was good enough, support was cheap enough, and it was fine for what we used it for.

Minpunten:

Edits are made on the local computer by the text editor, table, or presentation that the user uses on their computer. This makes standardization difficult.

ownCloud is a robust utility for anyone looking to access & manage their own cloud storage

5,0 vorig jaar

Opmerkingen: ownCloud is by far the best cloud solution I've tried for managing my data without any hindrances in terms of setup or drive configurations. The utility is silky-smooth across the entire interface & sharing data conveniently via link (with custom accessibility permissions) makes it the most versatile cloud software for fulfilling my productivity purposes.

Pluspunten:

ownCloud offers a state-of-the-art GUI to navigate, share & manage my data with ease on mobile & desktop. Setting up my 2TB NAS drive into ownCloud & configuring my partitions exclusively for work & personal use proved to be an unchallenging task. Ever since I've lost all my data due to internal SSD failure, it was second nature of me to perform daily backups of my computer to avoid such catastrophe. This utility suits my backup (& sharing) demands as it doesn't have to cost me a small fortune for annual or monthly subscription. Moreover, I'm really amazed by the upload speeds ownCloud can reach on my home 2.5 gigabit ethernet as it takes me mere seconds to upload some of my favourite movies or series for sharing & streaming.

Minpunten:

The only gripe I have with ownCloud is the time it takes to create a new user on the web application. I doubt it's a network-related issue from my end as it's noticeable on both my office & home networks. Perhaps a future update will resolve the matter.

Cheap and Good Alternative to Dropbox

Opmerkingen: We have been using ownCloud as a Dropbox alternative for my company for years now. We find that owning our own data is better than leaving it on the cloud. Our installation is not accessible without VPN.

Pluspunten:

Open-source means lots of plugins and support for the software.

Minpunten:

Not as well contributed lately as compared to NextCloud

Good file share and collaboration platform

3,0 3 jaar geleden

Opmerkingen: installation instruction are quite good. But you need some expertise to setup several configuration like secure access. Great point. it is completely free and work really well

Pluspunten:

The main pro is that this platform is open, the cons is that you need to have good skill to deploy it and configure. Globally most of the feature work really well like the cloud storage, that has a really good access through web, client and mobile app. Nice also the feature to integrate your mail, calendar, food task manager. Integrated editor for document is quite difficult to install. Beware cause you need to have a good machine where to install, with enough resource to make the service reliable

Minpunten:

Owncloud has become a minor stream of this project. Mostly Nextcloud is the new evolution with more update and feature.

Eerder overwogen alternatieven:

OwnCloud instead of DropBox

5,0 3 jaar geleden

Opmerkingen: Besides being a "better DropBox", OwnCloud has the ability to use plugins. It has a MarketPlace where you can search for various types of plugins. Most of the plugins are free too.

Pluspunten:

OwnCloud is wonderful. It runs on your own server so the only limitations to the amount of storage space you have is the amount of disk space on your server. You can create public links with or without password protection, and you can schedule the link to automatically deactivate. You can have as many synchronized folders as you want (not just one like DropBox). You can share each of these folders with different people or groups, and you have full control over the type of access: read only, write only (drop box), or read/write. Best of all, OwnCloud is an open-source product and it's all absolutely free.

Minpunten:

OwnCloud has an automatic update feature but I've had it fail more times than I've had it succeed. It's not all that hard to upgrade manually, but an automatic update would be much much nicer.

Great platform with a divided community

5,0 5 jaar geleden

Opmerkingen: The software is great. It does its job and it does it perfect.

Pluspunten:

It's great to have autonomy on your cloud. You can get file storage that adapts to your very own infrastructure, plus it has a lot of plugins to interact with your data.

Minpunten:

At some point the community divided and the product was forked, which left the people that uses it with two choices.

Great option for collaboration

3,0 3 jaar geleden

Opmerkingen: My experience was good. It is easy to organize files, share certain files with certain people and keep confidential files confidential. The easy drag and drop features allows for document migration to happen quite quickly. I also love that I can access files anywhere.

Pluspunten:

This software is great for office sharing and collaboration. Considering we have remote employees, I can upload a document and they instantly have access to it. It also does not take up a ton of bandwidth space like Dropbox is known for.

Minpunten:

There were some features that it did not have that we wanted.

ownCloud or Nextcloud

4,0 4 jaar geleden

Pluspunten:

It's great to have your storage in house. The piece of mind that you know where your data is at all times is important, but also, nothing beats local for speed. The clients (I use Windows, Linux and Android clients) make it super easy to sync across different devices - set up once and forget about it!

Minpunten:

I've been going back and forth between ownCloud and Nextcloud (an ownCloud fork) for a couple of years. Started out with ownCloud, switched to Nextcloud, then found out that ownCloud development had caught up and then some, and switched back. Luckily switching is easy but ideally, you want the best of both.

So Cool!

4,0 5 jaar geleden

Opmerkingen: Great software and a great idea for anyone who wants their own self-hosted cloud storage. No sharing, and you keep full control over your data. What's not to love?

Pluspunten:

OwnCloud is seriously cool. I used it for a few years on my personal server, making use of that storage for my cloud hosting. It was surprisingly easy-to-install, no hiccups or weird configuration problems with my server (I had it running on BlueHost), and the user interface was straightforward and easy to use. I didn't purchase the smartphone app, although that would have been really cool to try out.

Minpunten:

The software is available at no charge, so it's silly to complain, but I would have liked the interface to be a bit less sterile looking. I imagine the paid platform probably targets enterprises that want on-premise, self-hosted solutions and don't care about having a fun and attractive UI, and to be fair, ownClouds UI is super clean and it is appealing, but it would have been nice if it was just a little less "Microsoftey." That's a pretty minimal complaint though.

OwnCloud honest review

4,0 2 jaar geleden

Opmerkingen: We often have to send large files to our students This process has always been difficult, and we've tried a variety of approaches throughout the years. None has proven as user-friendly and dependable as ownCloud. It has made my life much easier.

Pluspunten:

I believe that ownCloud is one of the greatest products for securely sharing files,  the software is accessible from all major platforms. It's simple to set up and easy to access and find my stored materials.

Minpunten:

- Time-consuming to set up - Low storage capacity - Performance issues and bugs

Opmerkingen: The software is not bad, it is good and it is recommended for data transfers even from any browser of your choice. It's just the level of storage that needs to be reviewed

Pluspunten:

It is a good software because it allows me to transfer audio, visual or other file data to my customers, partners and friends. In addition, it's still fast.

Minpunten:

The least appreciated aspect of owncloud software is the weakness of the platform when storing a lot of data

Owncloud: ogni tuo desiderio è un link

4,0 vorig jaar

Opmerkingen: Per la totalità delle funzioni comunque mi sento di consigliarlo, è un ottimo prodotto sopratutto per un utilizzo professionale fra professionista e clienti, in cui la condivisione del materiale spesso e volentieri dev'essere immediata e giornaliera.

Pluspunten:

Il suo punto forte sono assolutamente i link personalizzabili da poter inoltrare esternamente: posso creare una cartella e passare un link ad un soggetto esterno per far sì che lui possa vedere o scaricare o modificare tali file - a differenza dell'autorizzazione che gli stiamo dando - senza far sì che 1. lui abbia scaricato il programma 2. che lui abbia l'accesso a tutto il percorso per arrivare a quella singola cartella, bensì gli posso rendere disponibile solamente una parte isolata, e questa è una funzione davvero ben progettata!

Minpunten:

Alle volte ci sono dei problemi si sincronizzazione fra l'Owncloud online e sul server del proprio pc. Quasi sempre no, ma basta che capiti una volta per non capirci più niente.Infine, l'interfaccia dell'Owncloud online è totalmente da rivedere, molto lenta e ormai vecchia.

Pluspunten:

Ceding control of your files to cloud service providers does not fit every situation and own cloud solves this. Especially when you then have to share the items, the custom link based of our domain was a nice feature.

Minpunten:

Technical ability is mostly required to setup and your system and to update. Auto update is a pain and mostly pushes one to manual process.

Best alternative for Dropbox

5,0 4 jaar geleden

Opmerkingen: We're very satisfied with OwnCloud considering the price we pay for it. We're not considering to move out of it in the next coming years.

Pluspunten:

We've switched from DropBox due to one feature it miss which is on-prem support. We use OwnCloud in an on-premise deployment method and now we're more comfortable that our files are more secured unlike before. Also OwnCloud supports server-side encryption as well

Minpunten:

It doesn't have any support for file locking. Lack of ability to detect duplicate changes on the same file by 2 different users.

Free cloud DIY

5,0 6 jaar geleden

Opmerkingen: Having the capacity to get to every one of my documents from anyplace is incredible. I have a few terabytes of documents on my server, more than I would ever store with any of the cloud suppliers out there, in any event not at a sensible cost. When it is set up and designed it is entirely strong and does the activity I require it to do.

Pluspunten:

It has phenomenal capacities which encourages me keep my work all together, with my associates, I can synchronize every one of the records on various PCs, it's super sheltered since I can encode the documents, has online music peruser, online content tool, watcher of online archives (PDF, OpenDocument), among numerous different capacities.

Minpunten:

The confounded method to coordinate different advances like FTP. The documentation for the execution of different techniques like FTP is somewhat confounded in comparisson with different instructional exercises.

Secured sharing platform

4,0 3 jaar geleden

Opmerkingen: Multi-language is supported on the web interface but is not available on the desktop client as far as I know.

Pluspunten:

Synchronization of local documents with the online web platform is automatic, very efficient and fast. You can manage rights on your shared folders. You can be notified by mail when someone change a file on a shared folder. You can send a download link to an external user with a validity limit. OwnCloud is a WebDAV server, so files can be opened thru a web url in Microsoft products and other tools. You can have your own OwnCloud server on-premises. SSO authentication and Custom branding make a great integration with internal tools.

Minpunten:

The solution is not optimized for very big files.

Easy file sharing

5,0 6 jaar geleden

Opmerkingen: We frequently have to share very large files (zip files, videos, etc.) with our clients for their approvals. This process was always complicated and we employed a number of solutions over the years. None has been as easy to use and as reliable as ownCloud. It has literally made my life easier. I am able to organize files into folders with separate passwords and urls allowing me to share only what is needed to specific people. I know that my clients will be able to access and download what they need, when they need it. That gives me great piece of mind.

Pluspunten:

This software makes it very easy and RELIABLE to share files with our clients and others. It offers a very easy to use interface and has NEVER failed to upload or download. Prior to getting this tool, we struggled with method for sharing (especially large) files with our clients. Once our IT dept got a hold of ownCloud and customized it for our use, my life got measurably easier.

Minpunten:

The only issue I have ever had with it is when I was surprised by a site expiring. Now, I know it was my fault to set a date and then forget it...but it would be nice to receive a notice when an expiration date is nearing. I have learned how to manage that better, but would still appreciate a notification.

ownCloud lets you own your cloud.

4,0 4 jaar geleden

Opmerkingen: Experience is overall positive as the benefits typically outweigh any difficulties. Data sovereignty and geo-fencing regulations are some of the main reasons I consider using ownCloud.

Pluspunten:

Controlling your own data, while enjoying much of the benefits of the likes of dropbox or onedrive. Ability to link mobile phones and sync contacts and calendars. File/folder sync between devices.

Minpunten:

Update process between versions can be cumbersome depending on your installation and set up method.

Pioneer on open source cloud storage.

5,0 5 jaar geleden

Opmerkingen: I love owncloud, i been there almost since it born, and I'm using it now, actively participating in the community.

Pluspunten:

I been using owncloud for at least 10 years. I'm part of the translation to spanish too. I got mad at bugs, problems, etc, but this growed quick and bugs were repaired. Now, is the solution that I use internal in the institution (government) and for my personal customers, for backup. The big pro is that the space its what you can afford in hard drives. Easy to maintain. Secure. With a lot of addons for productivity and integration. Clients for every single OS that exist.

Minpunten:

As same as dropbox and other products, the big con that I found is that every time that the client starts needs to scan all folders. In big folders with a lot of files, this take a while and it use a lot of hard drive. So when your OS starts client will kill the HD until finishing the indexing of files.

Past its prime and headed the wrong direction

2,0 4 jaar geleden

Opmerkingen: Good while still community oriented, now a dead-end product.

Pluspunten:

When I implemented ownCloud, it was a neat opensource platform with an active community, with the option of solid support at a fair price. Filesharing with "cloud" providers like Dropbox leaves you at their mercy for security (or lack thereof!) and the annoying clients require re-training on a regular basis. The support costs of the simple ownCloud web interface with drag-drop file uploading were one-time only. Performance was good enough, support was cheap enough, and it was fine for what we used it for.

Minpunten:

Over the course of a few years, the founders left due to "professional managers" messing things up. Support costs went up with no real indication why. I dropped ownCloud paid and switched to a solid commercial product called FileCloud. For "free" OSS I strongly recommend NextCloud, I've helped several friends set it up and they are ecstatic with the results.
