That’s right, beginning today, you can test drive ownCloud free for 3 hours through a partnership with Standing Cloud. ownCloud powered by Standing Cloud gives companies the flexibility of ownCloud Business Edition, the functionality and ease of use of a hosted offering, and the choice of more than 15 leading cloud service providers, at a single bundled price for hosting and file sync and share services. Customers can get started immediately with a free, three-hour “test drive”.
As we say in the press release:
“With Standing Cloud, ownCloud customers can choose the cloud provider, data center and geography of their choice for their deployment from among a wide range of leading public cloud providers, including Amazon Web Services, Rackspace, GoGrid, VPS.net and more. ownCloud deployments through Standing Cloud are completely portable from cloud-to-cloud, meaning users are never locked-in to a single platform or cloud provider. They can quickly add capacity or move to another cloud, and are protected against downtime and service outages.”
This is just the first step as we continue to partner to make file sync and share easier, more secure and more cost effective. Our Service Providers across the world prove that local and differentiated cloud services make sense.
