ownCloud has launched Infinite Scale 4.0, the latest significant update to its secure content collaboration platform. This release introduces a range of new features and functionalities, including enhanced capabilities for importing data from third-party clouds, simplifying data upload, refining search functions with the use of tags and filters, and further enhancing user-friendly linking and navigation.

With the introduction of Infinite Scale 4.0, users of cloud services including Microsoft OneDrive, Google Drive and ownCloud 10 can now automatically import their files into Infinite Scale. This is accomplished through the “Cloud Importer,” a feature by ownCloud, the leading open source enterprise file share and synchronization provider. The Cloud Importer offers both direct and indirect import methods, ensuring the smooth, secure, and efficient transfer of data from various storage locations.

Another notable addition is the ability to relocate files to a specific folder within the breadcrumb navigation using the mouse. Furthermore, Infinite Scale 4.0 introduces expanded context menus along with the newly introduced “File Control Bar,” an interface that consolidates all file actions.
