For the third time, Nextcloud participated in the Cloud Computing Insider Award, and won first place in the Filesharing & Collaboration category!
From April 20th to August 31st, readers of the individual insider portals were asked to vote for their favorite in each category. IT Awards got votes from over 50 000 readers this year and Nextcloud came out on top. We’re very proud of this and we’d like to thank everyone who made this possible, that is, all of you! Especially all of you who voted, but also everyone else who helps spread the word or improve Nextcloud directly with code, documentation or helping other users on our forums. Every bit makes a difference.

The yearly IT Awards are a highlight for the community, with strong competition. This year, besides Nextcloud taking home the big prize in the Filesharing & Collaboration category, ownCloud was second and Dropbox third. In more than 3 dozen categories, other companies took home prizes. You can read a full overview of the winners in this article (in German).

As part of Schleswig-Holstein's state digitization strategy, the state chancellery has announced they will work with Nextcloud to develop AI for working with government documents. This comes just after we announced the first private AI assistant last weekend with Hub 6. The German state already uses Nextcloud and their AI strategy aligns with our work on ethical, local AI technologies.
Over the last year, AI has become a popular topic. Some is hype, some is substance. Some is good, some is bad. We want to give you the good, not the bad, and ignore the hype! AI has a ton of opportunity – but also risk. So we put you in control – off by […]
The serious security flaws in ownCloud (now owned by Kiteworks) do NOT affect Nextcloud. We have strict security processes in place, and do not ship test data from libraries that can cause security breaches.
