Programmable Web: ownCloud Extends Reach of File-Sharing API into the Cloud

Posted by ownCloud GmbH – 12. November 2014

As an open source file-sharing and synchronization application,ownCloud has gained a fair amount of traction inside enterprise IT organizations. Now it’s is taking advantage of public APIs to connect deployments of ownCloud with external cloud services that in effect creates a universal file system that developers can invoke using ownCloud APIs.

Version 7.0 of ownCloud Enterprise Edition provides a common file access layer that allows developers and end users alike to access data on internal servers running ownCloud or secondary sources such as Microsoft SharePoint Jive, Dropbox, Google, and Amazon Web Services (AWS). That latter capability is provided by adding support for the AWS S3 object store alongside the OpenStack Swift object store that ownCloud already supports.
