Functions and Features

Infinite Scale is a complete modernization of ownCloud 10 with a new and modern three-tier architecture and several enhancements to ensure an improved experience for users and administrators. It is compatible with ownCloud 10, shares its core features and adds speed, efficiency, scalability and extended functionality.

As a multi-cloud and multi-purpose platform, it helps companies and organizations control, manage and secure data. Moreover, Infinite Scale delivers usability improvements in link and file sharing.

Spaces, one of the most powerful features of Infinite Scale, significantly simplifies digital collaboration for remote teams with a revolutionary technical approach and optimized user experience.

Improve Workflows and Collaboration with Spaces

Spaces, an elementary feature of Infinite Scale, boosts collaboration and productivity, reduces cost, speeds up onboarding of new employees and partners and significantly cuts down on administrative overhead while improving compliance, control and security.

Spaces are as simple as folders, but extremely powerful and flexible data rooms (vaults) for project and team collaboration. In Spaces, files are not tied to single user or group accounts. 

At the same time, Spaces simplifies data store, protects companies, organizations or institutions from data loss. This fundamental shift of paradigm becomes possible because of the completely new architecture under the hood of Infinite Scale.

Increase Efficiency, Optimize Usability and Reduce Cost

As the name suggests, Infinite Scale elevates flexibility in classical or federated network setups to new levels, allowing infinite scalability, integrating data fabrics, networks and clouds of all sizes.

The new cloud-native approach with Go, Microservices and a new vue.js web interface helps reduce cost for both deployment and maintenance, and at the same time, allows the integration of all kinds of data sources of any size and distribution.

Infinite Scale empowers users to share data and collaboration in new and visionary ways, and at the same time, enjoy full control over links and files shared, in on-premises, hybrid or public cloud scenarios.

Focus on Users and Metadata

With Infinite Scale, the consumer takes over the central role. As a cloud-native platform, its modern architecture serves this new data consumption model by providing Data Management as a Service (DMaaS) with a unified access to data through APIs across all data silos, with multiple, individual storage backends if needed.

Infinite Scale is designed to connect these storage backends and provide a unified data access layer on top of the storage. This allows to consolidate any existing data (silos) sources, thus securing previous investments into data repositories.
