On Thursday evening, the eight insider portals BigData-Insider, Blockchain-Insider, CloudComputing-Insider, DataCenter-Insider, Dev-Insider, IP-Insider, Security-Insider and Storage-Insider of Vogel IT-Medien in Augsburg awarded the IT-Awards in a total of 43 categories for the fifth consecutive year.
More than 35,000 votes were received for the six cloud computing categories. In the Filesharing & Collaboration category, ownCloud was awarded first place thanks to the high approval of the readership and the loyal supporters of the open source community.
This again outstanding award in the fourth year in a row reflects the considerable success of the Nuremberg private cloud solution based on open source.
“Data security and data sovereignty are now on everyone’s lips and are becoming increasingly important, especially for large and medium-sized companies as well as for public administration. This is also demonstrated by the fact that ownCloud, as a leading open source file sharing provider, was once again able to hold its own against well-known proprietary public cloud services such as Google, Dropbox and Citrix. I am particularly pleased with the recognition we have received for our daily work and would like to thank our customers and our lively open source community for allowing us to accept this prestigious IT award for the fourth time now. ownCloud rocks!” says Tobias Gerlinger, CEO at ownCloud.
