The all-in-one platform for business applications

Pros

Its easy to use, stable and dependable, extremely customisable, and works across all mobile and desktop operating systems. Perhaps most importantly, through the built in app store, it serves as a platform for many other key business applications which we need, such as collaborative document editing, calendar and contact sync and share, internal knowledge base (wiki), and more.

Cons

It could be easier to get set up. The video conferencing features so far didn't work reliably on our installation.

Reasons for Choosing Nextcloud

Open source, better local clients, more features, much larger app ecosystem.

Reasons for Switching to Nextcloud

Faster development cycle, more features, more responsive security updates.

The Number One-Solution for your personal and private cloud!

It has been a great journey from the very beginning to the current Nextcloud Hub 22. The solution worked out of the box and can be extended with many stable plugins so that there is anything you can dream of which can be implemented - even with writing an app on your own while the number of apps increased week by week!

Pros

Nextcloud appeared from the vast ruins of ownCloud which I always liked, but always hassled with once there was an update. It was vital from the very beginning, it was more open, it was more stable - and everything you needed to get if up and running worked like a charm straight from the scratch. With each version there was not only an evolution, but a refinement of features, an open conversation with the community (something ownCloud really lacked of) and a visible progress. Besides, working and using Nextcloud is just wonderful.

Cons

Nothing that would be worth mentioning - indeed there are no negative aspects regarding my use case and the use case of my customers. It would be nice to get a fully-featured IMAP-server integrated in Nextcloud, but this is a luxury issue. Besides, the company should take its time to grow and to keep the platform stable and maybe there will once be a Nextcloud-Talk app for macOS and Windows?

Reasons for Switching to Nextcloud

ownCloud got stuck in a dead end while Nextcloud was on the move, pushing steadily forward with updates, information and flawlessy upgrade routines that ownCloud never managed to handle. It was just user-friendly from the very beginning and - instead of ownCloud - vital since the day it started.

An full stack solution for enterprise

I have been using nextcloud for more than five years now, and it has only got better on every release.

Pros

Nextcloud regroups a file sharing, messaging and organization solution in one. It can be completed by many plugging like encryption, antivirus for files, nextcloud Talk, or even collabora and other for file editing.

Cons

Sometimes, I observe some bugs in the mobile app, where my photos don't get uploaded.

Reasons for Choosing Nextcloud

With nextcloud I can store my data, wherever I want. The solution is secure by design and very easy to set up. It has a growing reputation and tends to be used in europe in administratives offices and some companies.

NC as private cloud solution

We have our critical data in our own controlled cloud environment. Our teams are spread all over the place in Germany, therefore NC is an excellent solution to support our collaboration.

Pros

Easy to setup and ease of use. Clients available on all plattforms (W10, OSX, iOS, Linux). Integratrion with Active Directory is quite essential for us. Easy to administrate. UNIX Platform. It is very robust!

Cons

That there is no integration with MS-SharePoint or MS-o365. This is really neccessary in todays world, although I am not a MS fan at all, but for business purposes this is really essential!

Reasons for Choosing Nextcloud

We wanted to have full controll over our data, because we have not much trust to the big public-cloud providers. After comparing the options, NC provided exactly what we wanted. When we made the decision, the future of Onwcloud seemed to us quite uncertain. We use o365 for our office collaboration. NC provides our cloud-based file-storage and archive. Remark: please do not try to compete with the full o365 functionality (Teams, Exchange, Office etc.), from my point of view, this isn't worth the effort and it is unlikely thy you are going to win this race. A clever cooperation/integration would be something really usefull. This is a user speaking, I know the developers do not like this, but I can not see the point of ignoring the reality...

Reasons for Switching to Nextcloud

Sharepoint was to complicated and resource intensiv. It addtion it is not fully usable on other plattforms than MS-Windows.

Highly useful for users like me

Been using since OwnCloud and since handed over to NextCloud, i can see lots more improvement. Very happy with this software.

Pros

1. It does what it advertises and does it well 2. Free 4. Security conscious to some extent. The software does recommended as well as let you know what needs to be fixed (Self Hosted) 5. Lots of plugins, for eg. Ability to edit excel document right through your browser or phone without additional software. 6. Documentation for installing on self hosted systems and information is quite variant and easy to understand 7. Applications for mobile devices with very nice features, for eg. When taking a video or photo with your phone, you have the ability to upload the img/vids automatically to your server

Cons

Just one issue. If your server needs an update (Self Hosted) it would be great to have the desktop software notify you rather than login with your admin account on the self-hosted system and look in there.
