ownCloud scores second at Best Cloud-Based File Storage Readers’ Choice Awards 2013 behind Dropbox, ahead of Google, Box and Ubuntu

Posted by ownCloud GmbH – 5. December 2013

Linux Journal readers spoke and chose ownCloud as the number two Best Cloud-Based File Storage in the Reader’s Choice Awards 2013, beating out hefty challengers Google, Box and Ubuntu, and falling short only to Dropbox – with its hundreds of millions of users.

According to the polls 16.3% of voters prefer ownCloud to other cloud-based storage options, ahead of rsync, Amazon s3 and SpiderOak.

Once again, this proves that people want more control over their data.

Shawn Powers, who put together the results for Linux Journal, wrote: “it’s great to see ownCloud nipping at [Dropbox’s] heels (…) because I love to see open-source alternatives whenever possible.”

It is such an honor to receive this kind of recognition from actual users – watch out Dropbox, you’re next.
