It will provide about 6 Petabytes of free-to-use storage to 500,000 affiliates of more than 30 public research and applied science universities in the region, Raimund Vogl, director of IT at Münster University wrote on Linux.com.

In addition to meeting all of their technical requirements, ownCloud’s open source approach led them to trust that it was a secure and flexible platform, Vogl said.
