ownCloud is working on a new file platform modernized from the ground up. Already, a broad ecosystem of open-source software has pledged to support the upcoming ownCloud Infinite Scale with integrations. One of the integration partners is Collabora, the company that brought LibreOffice into the cloud.
Integrating its open-source browser-based office suite Collabora Online with the new ownCloud file platform, Collabora enables existing customers to seamlessly migrate from ownCloud 10 to ownCloud Infinite Scale. This means that they can leverage the substantial improvement in performance and scale right from the start.
The combination of Collabora Online and ownCloud Infinite Scale enables users to productively work on documents, spreadsheets, presentations and more, right from within ownCloud and in their browser. It enables teams to collaborate in real time, with changes shown to all collaborators as they happen. Deployed on-premises or in a cloud of choice, ownCloud and Collabora provide organizations with a secure and sovereign workspace they fully control.
Collabora and ownCloud are already in a fruitful long-term partnership, providing Collabora Online for ownCloud Enterprise together.
They also jointly developed the data room feature Secure View. It makes the sharing of sensitive documents more secure by restricting the available actions for viewers and by identifiably watermarking documents. In addition, documents are displayed as images in users’ browser and the files strictly remain on the server at all times, providing the most secure data room service.
“For our new file platform ownCloud Infinite Scale, we follow a best-of-breed strategy of seamlessly integrating with strong solutions in the open source ecosystem”, explains Tobias Gerlinger, CEO of ownCloud.
“We are especially pleased that Collabora Online as one of the flagship solutions in the open source community is already in the process of integration with ownCloud Infinite Scale.”
“We are excited about developing the integration of Collabora Online with ownCloud Infinite Scale. It is the logical next step in our long and fruitful partnership”, says Michael Meeks, General Manager at Collabora Productivity. “It enhances the usefulness of our products for customers, providing their staff with productive and secure workspaces that scale and perform.
