Secure open source cloud from C68 and Nextcloud

For the last two years, members of our team have been contributing to the development of Nextcloud, the self-hosted open source cloud solution.

Nextcloud is a suite of client-server software for creating and using file hosting services. It is functionally similar to Dropbox and Google Drive, although Nextcloud is free and open-source, allowing anyone to install and operate it on a private server.

During this time frame we have contributed to community building, software localization/translation, and advocacy. Being also part of our local hackerspace, Nextcloud community has helped us share knowledge with others and grow our technical expertise in cloud services, system administration, and client relationships. Nextcloud has a strong commitment to FLOSS and has more than 140 public repositories on its GitHub site.

Today, after a lot of engagement at a community level and in coordination with the Nextcloud team we are proud to announce that starting from March 1st 2019 Collective68 is offering professional Nextcloud services:

Why Nextcloud?

Nextcloud is fully recommended if you need a new collaborative cloud platform, but having your data private and secure is something of high importance to you. One of the reasons might be the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) or one of the many security risks any organization is facing today. In contrast to proprietary services like Dropbox, the open architecture of Nextcloud allows added functionality to the server in the form of applications and enables you and your company to have full control of your data.

These are only some of the reasons Nextcloud is trusted by the German Federal Administration, Max-Planck-Gesellschaft, TU Berlin, Siemens, Windows, macOS, Linux, Android, iOS, and a lot of tech giants.

Nextcloud in your workspace.
