The best choice for enterprise file sync and share: ownCloud
A global community that values data sovereignty
More than 100 million people around the world use the open-source file platform ownCloud, and it has been installed more than 200,000 times. On GitHub, over 7,200 people have starred the project, the ownCloud core alone has nearly 500 active contributors. Citrix is closed-source, which means its code is not avalable for public scrutiny. That is also a data privacy and compliance issue, since data could be transferred outside an organizations’ jurisdiction – for which there is no legal basis for example in the EU.
