ownCloud Benefits

Benefits

The main benefits of ownCloud are seamless file sharing and syncing, secure data viewing, and multiple device file access. Clients can effortlessly get to their information anytime and anywhere by utilizing the local Android and iOS applications, which can transfer pictures after they are taken automatically.

The desktop customer permits syncing documents at home by keeping chosen folders synchronized between devices. Clients can send public links that are protected by passwords to other individuals, enabling them to upload documents. Also, ownCloud informs users when record sharing happens. Its collaboration functionalities make it feasible for users to modify the files without a moment’s delay or to put remarks on images and do video calls.

ownCloud serves Linux, Mac, and Windows, as well as local applications for Android and iOS. This extensive support for platforms makes ownCloud the perfect solution for those who use multiple devices. Also, users can add easily external storage to the system through Swift, Dropbox, FTP, Amazon S3, WebDAV, SMB/CIFS, OpenStack Object Storage, local hardware, and much more.

Applications and information can be encrypted on cloud and local storage, without leaving the ownCloud server. The keys, however, can also be managed by an external key management solution if needed. With HTTPS, all transfers of data are encrypted based on WebDAV standards.

Schedules and contacts can be accessed and shared easily. What’s more, rich text files can be modified in real-time and users can read PDFs, view images, watch videos, and do other tasks. The software allows up to five individuals to work on files for collaborative editing within the browser. The software also comes with notifications and an activity feed to keep all users updated with activities related to data.
