At the same time, we announce availability of offerings for our enterprise customers, who get access to a secure, easy to use and well integrated Online Office solution in their Nextcloud installation.

Bringing an integrated open source document suite into Nextcloud with support for important file formats users need to work with every day has been a key goal for us since we started our project. As we care about all our users including contributors, home users and small and large enterprises, we wanted to make sure there was a solution for a wide range of use cases.
Free, up to date and easy to use
“Nextcloud is a community focused project“, noted Michael Meeks, General Manager, Collabora Productivity. “making a secure and up to date solution for online document editing available to everybody was a key concern for their community and we’re proud to have been able to deliver that together with Nextcloud“
The result of our cooperation with Collabora is that, from now on, Nextcloud users have access to a free, easy to use and regularly updated LibreOffice Online docker image which you can find here. The Online Office feature provided by this docker image is easy to integrate in Nextcloud following the instructions on this page. Collabora and Nextcloud are committed to providing regular updates of this image so users, benefiting from the easy upgrade process available in docker, have an up to date Online Office!
Scalable, secure and enterprise ready
At the same time, enterprise customers can now purchase support contracts for a scalable and more secure solution from Collabora and Nextcloud. Our in depth expertise and security knowledge will ensure reliable deployments even in the most demanding circumstances.
Collabora Online integrates in Nextcloud, providing users with the ability to share a document with multiple users who can see changes in real time, avoiding conflicts or versioning issues. Build in secure chat and WebRTC video conferencing in Nextcloud complement the experience, allowing a new level of collaboration and productivity.
You can get the docker images from the Collabora website and follow our documentation to integrate it into your Nextcloud. Share your feedback so we can work together to make this an even better product! If you’d like to discuss these things in person, meet us and the Collabora developers at the Nextcloud Conference, sept 16-22 in Berlin.

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.

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.
