Product Overview

ownCloud is simple and intuitive for business professionals to use, but gives IT complete control over sensitive corporate data. ownCloud provides drag-and-drop access to files on your local file system using a web browser, simple point and click file sharing, and controlled access to files from mobile devices.

    File Sharing for the Enterprise – consumer-grade usability with the power IT demands

  • Control – IT chooses the servers onto which ownCloud is installed and controls where all files are stored, leveraging storage across on-site storage devices, and private/hybrid cloud storage services. The Wizard interfaces enable IT admins to integrate ownCloud with existing Active Directory or LDAP services, and ownCloud’s File Firewall provides advanced rules-driven access controls at the file level.
  • Integration – ownCloud integrates quickly and easily with existing authentication through SAML, authorization, security, logging, monitoring and back-up systems. ownCloud’s out-of-the-box integration with Jive, the world’s leading enterprise social collaboration product, extends Jive with enterprise-class file sharing capabilities.

    In addition, ownCloud‘s open architecture, mobile libraries and APIs allow IT to rapidly extend core functionality and enhance the solution to meet special user needs.

  • Productivity – ownCloud combines the power and control of an enterprise-class file sharing solution with the user productivity of consumer-grade services. Clean, crisp user interfaces are complemented by a range of popular end user features such as avatars, file previews, activity feeds, share file notifications and example files.

Product Features

ownCloud Enterprise Edition is an enterprise-grade file sync and share solution. ownCloud Enterprise Edition extends the open source core technology with value-added features, certified product distributions, documentation and enterprise platform support.

Protect and Manage – host files on premise, in the Cloud, or any place you chose. Integrate – use existing infrastructure, policies and procedures. Extend – leverage custom apps to meet unique business needs with ownCloud’s open platform.
On your Servers – Install ownCloud on your servers, in your data center – or wherever you choose to host the software.

Using your Storage – Leverage the storage you already have, or add the storage you choose to serve end user files.

Integrate with existing Home Directories – Easily integrate ownCloud with existing user home directories, making sync and share a seamless extension of existing user storage.

Mobile Libraries – Access ownCloud’s internal functions, resources and events directly from your custom mobile applications.

Sharing and Activity Stream APIs – Extend ownCloud with custom functionality through REST APIs that expose ownCloud’s file sharing and activity events.
