Introducing the Nextcloud Box

Bring your data home

The Nextcloud Box is your private cloud. It stores your data and enables you to sync between your devices and share with others.

Technology

The Nextcloud box consists of the following parts:
  • 1 TB USB3 hard drive from WDLabs
  • Nextcloud case with room for the drive and a compute board
  • microUSB charger, cables and adapters, a screw driver and screws
  • microSD card with Snappy Ubuntu Core as OS, including Apache, MySQL and the latest Nextcloud 10 pre-installed and ready to go

The Box does not come with a Raspberry Pi.

The Box is hardware-compatible with the Raspberry Pi 2 and 3, and the oDroid C2.

Right now, the OS only works with the Raspberry Pi 2. Software support for Raspberry Pi 3 is planned for November 2016. There is no plan for oDroid C2 yet but Linux Kernel 4.10 has support planned for the hardware so first half 2017 is a reasonable guess.

Note that by default, the Nextcloud Box only works on the network it is connected to (like your home LAN). It requires configuration of encryption (https) and router ports to reach it from outside your home network.

Get the box

Currently you can only purchase the Nextcloud Box in Europe and the USA. We are working on bringing the box to other regions!

How to Box

The Nextcloud Box is very easy to assemble. It comes with all necessary screws and a screwdriver. The lid uses magnets (magic!) so you can quickly open and close it.
