You should have full control over your data. We help you achieve that: a safe home for all your data. Secure, under your control and developed in an open, transparent and trustworthy way. We are Nextcloud.
Started by well known open source file sync and share project founder Frank Karlitschek and joined by the most active contributors, building on its mature code base, we offer a more reliable and sustainable solution for users and customers. Nextcloud kicks off today and we will continue to develop the project over the coming weeks. We will provide the bug fixes and security hardening all users need and the Enterprise Subscription capabilities enterprise customers require!
If you are an existing user or customer or are looking to deploy we have your back. Nextcloud will uncompromisingly focus on providing the best possible experience to all its users, customers and contributors. To ensure a smooth transition, we will honor all the contracts customers have signed to get support over the last years until today. Your support does not go away: Nextcloud will be there for you.
Over the coming days and weeks we will come with more information about our offering but you can already contact us for questions about your support contract or a new installation. See our enterprise page for more information.
An Open Source business model depends on a carefully balanced equilibrium between the needs of a business and its customers, users and contributing community. Nextcloud is a reboot of the company and project, a new way of re-defining the balance into a more sustainable, open ecosystem with a single focus: putting users in control of their data. Kickstarted as a healthy, growing company, Nextcloud reduces barriers to contribution and increases transparency to enable more input of customers and users.
On top of the file sync and share you all know and love, Nextcloud will provide full Spreed.ME support. Spreed.ME is a next generation, open source WebRTC based communication platform with video conferencing and text chat. We will also provide support for the popular Calendar and Contacts apps and improve and enrich the user experience in many other areas.
New energy and greater ambitions for the future: Nextcloud is the next generation of on-premise cloud technology! We will release more information about our plans the coming hours and days in our blogs.
