Features & Technical
Can I put ownCloud all on one server?
Yes, however, this is not best practice. If you are looking to scale ownCloud beyond a handful of users, and are looking for the best performance, you want to consider separating the three tiers of the application (Web, Database, Storage). If this is not an option, making sure you are able to separate the disk IO by using different physical volumes for each is a smaller scale alternative.
What are the Minimum System Requirements to run ownCloud?
The most current minimum system requirements may be found at https://owncloud.com/minimum-product-requirements.
Note: ownCloud is not supported on a Windows Server.
What Encryption methods are used and what data is encrypted?
We use openSSL AES 256 bit encryption to encrypt any data that resides in the ownCloud default storage. For additional information on ownCloud security, please read our technical whitepaper at https://owncloud.com/whitepapers
How does the virus scanner app work?
The antivirus app may be enabled in the admin panel and uses ClamX to scan the ownCloud default datastore. Additional virus scanners may be integrated with ownCloud’s flexible API.
How do the ownCloud Apps work?
There are two kinds of apps that work with ownCloud Enterprise Edition. Those included by default are considered Enterprise Apps and are fully supported with a paid subscription. These include the apps listed in the ownCloud Eval Guide; these apps may be enabled/disabled in the admin panel. Third-party apps are those apps available at apps.owncloud.com which have been authored by our community contributors and are designed to work with ownCloud Server. These third-party apps are not supported by ownCloud, Inc.
What is Federated Cloud Sharing?
With Federated Cloud, users on one ownCloud installation can collaborate with users on other ownCloud installations while each server maintains its respective security and governance protocols. Files shared between users are no longer confined to a single shared folder or ownCloud instance; users can access the latest file versions and selectively sync the most critical shared files.
