In this edition, we conducted an email-based interview with Frank Karlitschek, the lead developer of ownCloud, a server software project that provides universal access to your files via the Web, your computer, or your mobile devices — wherever you are. It also provides a platform to easily view and sync your contacts, calendars, and bookmarks across all your devices and enables basic editing right on the Web. It is licensed under the GNU Affero General Public License version 3, or at your option, any later version.
This year, companies are sure to rethink their cloud strategies and increasingly rely on European clouds. In doing so, they will reclaim their digital sovereignty, implement sustainable data strategies and take the issue of green IT into their own hands.
By Holger Dyroff, Co-Founder and COO, ownCloud
