The best choice for enterprise file sync and share: ownCloud
Backed by a global community and a large ecosystem
More than 100 million people around the world use ownCloud, it has been installed over 200,000 times. On GitHub, over 7,200 people have starred ownCloud. The core alone has nearly 500 active contributors. You won’t find idgard there – it consists of closed source code. With ownCloud as an open-source project, you can rely on a large, globally active network and ecosystem. While other providers sacrifice productivity for security, ownCloud provides both: By enabling you to run ownCloud on-premises or in a private cloud of your choice, you get performance, security and control.
Integrating tools and storage you already use
ownCloud takes a best-of-breed approach to improving team productivity and collaboration. ownCloud is integrated with many other open-source solutions, like ONLYOFFICE, Collabora Online, various groupware options and CRMs. ownCloud also mounts nearly any storage provider you might have in use, while for idgard, no external storage integration is possible.
+10 years experience in enterprise file sync & share
The open-source project ownCloud was launched in 2010 and the company ownCloud was founded in 2011. Since then, we provide support, deployment and customer-centric feature and integrations development. idgard, on the other hand, just provides file sharing with almost no further productivity features, apart from an email and messaging client. While users get an activity stream in ownCloud and can comment on any document, in idgard, they can only comment on PDFs.
Content collaboration scaling at ease
ownCloud is made for teams of any size: From a home installation on the Raspberry Pi to the largest ownCloud Enterprise instance with 200,000 users. ownCloud is designed for serious use in science and business, featuring unlimited file sizes. idgard does not support that, and does not even allow for real-time collaborative editing of documents.
