ownCloud secure cloud solution for filesharing

Well, we did it. After months of incredibly hard work, we launched a company.
And people took notice!

I’ve also received a lot of emails and phone calls from friends, colleagues and IT executives from companies large and small congratulating us and also asking how we are different from what’s currently out there. Certainly there is the technical aspects – especially regarding Open Source – and I’d point you to my partner Frank Karlitschek’s blog. But for me the clear distinction is freedom – freedom to decide where you want to store and access your data. ownCloud, get it? Your cloud, your data, your way.

Because we are not selling storage capacity, we can offer this great flexibility – and with it better security, management and cost savings. It’s just that simple. Sure we will be an attractive offering to end users, but we will also have much to offer IT departments large and small, as well as data centers, hosting providers and other solution providers.

So, what’s next? In the next couple months you’ll see some news as we update the ownCloud community project, add key staff and then launch our user-friendly commercial product. In the meantime, keep the emails coming, the fun is just beginning.

I want to wish you all a happy Holiday Season and all the Best for the year to come!
