"Perfect substitute for Dropbox, to keep your privacy and have unlimited space."

What do you like best?

I really like that you can personalize the cloud space as you like. The available space is dependent on your server space, that makes it much more convenient and versatile than other cloud solution.

Moreover you can be sure that your data is not used by big corporation for data mining.

The client software is also available for all common platforms.

What do you dislike?

basically nothing, owncloud - both server and client - work pretty good.

I occasionally had some problems updating the software, though I do not know exactly whether it was a problem of the server (configuration) or the update was not well prepared.

The only downside is that some other software that support cloud access, do not always support owncloud. Though this is not owncloud fault, it can be a limitation for some.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

I can recommend it to everyone who need a cloud service more flexible (and cheap) than common commercial solutions.

You do need some administration skills to install and administrate the server software.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

I managed to have a centralized cloud system taking advantage of webserver. I can have endless users accessing the cloud and space can managed internally.

Moneywise is convenient, as I only have to pay the webserver, the owncloud software is free.

"The best option in the cloud"

What do you like best?

I have a few terabytes of documents on my server, more than I would store with any of the cloud providers, when set up and designed it is completely solid. I can synchronize each of the records on several PCs, it is super protected since I can encode the documents.

What do you dislike?

If you accidentally delete a file, it may disappear from everywhere without the possibility of restoring it. OwnCloud is storage, you can only store them, but I wish I could see them too.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

You will be surprised to discover a very convenient software where you can easily store your files and share them with your friends or colleagues. We recommend this product, it's great

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

With this software I can get file storage that adapts to our own infrastructure, plus it has many plugins to interact with your data. It is very useful for the company.

"Easy to share and save Files"

What do you like best?

Own cloud is a great tool to implement your own personal cloud where you can share and save files. I like the ease of use and its user-friendly Graphic user interface. It is a simple but fast way to securely share and save files.

What do you dislike?

The storage capacity of the owncloud is not visible to the end-user and storage can easily run out of space. This makes administrators task to manage the space of the storage capacity difficult.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

We always need to share and download important documents with our colleagues and owncloud gives an easy way to share and save files on the private cloud. This has saved us a lot of time and helped us to collaborate on projects.

What do you like best?

It helps in deploying your cloud-based on your data and on-premises. Users will be able to confidently store their data. It is facilitating users with improved security measures such as management of lifecycle, two-factor authentication, and end-to-end encryption. It facilitates staff by providing them secure, flexible, and easy sharing of their files. It helps in sharing public links protected by passwords and expiry dates. You will be able to control that who is accessing your data.

What do you dislike?

It will take time to set up your cloud. Only you will be responsible for the loss of your data. If your data is deleted it will not be recovered because it is not like Google cloud and dropbox etc. it will provide slow speed such as 2Mbps. Its downloading and uploading speed is slow. It will be difficult to share your content with others.

Users will be able to get rid of slow connections of VPN, spam email attachments, and public clouds with an improper security system. It helps teams in collaborating from everywhere on any device.
