The best choice for enterprise file sync and share: ownCloud

Global open-source community and a large ecosystem

ownCloud is open source and has more than 200 million users worldwide. This means its transparent code is not only audited widely but also battle-tested in very large installations. In comparison, Dracoon only open-sourced its client encryption implementation. While this builds some confidence, the rest of the code is closed source, meaning customers do not know what happens to their data once it is uploaded.

File sharing that integrates with your favourite tools

ownCloud takes a best-of-breed approach to improving team productivity and collaboration. ownCloud is integrated with many other open-source solutions, allowing enterprises to seamlessly embed file sharing into their existing cloud stack. Unlike Dracoon, ownCloud gives you unlimited API calls to make integrations scale unimpeded.

+10 years experience in enterprise file sync & share

The open-source project ownCloud was launched in 2010. With ownCloud you get continuity, reliability and +10 years experience in enterprise file sync and share. With ownCloud as with Dracoon, Enterprise customers are billed according to their number of users. But in comparison, with Dracoon Enterprise, there is a “fair use policy” restricting the storage used to 0.1 TB per user, while the ownCloud Enterprise Edition has no such limit.

Content collaboration that scales infinitely

ownCloud is made for teams of any size: From a home installation on a Raspberry Pi to large ownCloud Enterprise instances with hundreds of thousands of users. ownCloud isn’t just infinitely scalable – it does not have a cost meter like other solutions, where there is a so-called fair use policy. ownCloud includes unlimited API calls, so infinite scalability does not lead to extra costs.
