The best choice for enterprise file sync and share: ownCloud

Global community, large clients, broad ecosystem

More than 200 million people worldwide use the open source file platform ownCloud. As a company, ownCloud is an established supplier of file platforms for a number of large international companies and organizations, including the particle physics research institution CERN and the Indian government. ownCloud has already been installed over 200,000 times. 

File sharing that integrates into the tools you already use

ownCloud integrates with nearly any storage provider you can think of. This knack for external storage integrations makes ownCloud the perfect choice to integrate disperse storage environments – a term that fits for nearly all organically grown businesses.

+10 years experience in enterprise file sync & share

Launched in 2010, ownCloud has plenty of experience and had time to foster an extensive ecosystem of integrations that enable users to productively work with their data. In terms of productivity integrations, ownCloud provides seamless and secure integrations with Microsoft Office Online Server, Collabora Online and ONLYOFFICE, whether on cloud servers or, for full control, on-premises. To open documents stored with tresorit means transferring them across the internet into another service, potentially opening up all sorts of attack surfaces.

Scaling content collaboration, easily

ownCloud brings infinite scalability to teams of any size: From a home installation on a Raspberry Pi to a large ownCloud Enterprise instance with 200,000 users. It supports unlimited file sizes. ownCloud gives users full transparency and an auditable source code before deployment. While Tresorit may be highly secure, customers don’t  know exactly what happens with their data after upload.
