We’re excited to announce a new Nextcloud partner in Germany! Starting in 1996 and now a team of 10 strong, HKN has been betting on scaleable, open source cluster technology since its inception. The technologies have changed since the mid nineties, but not the ambition: build a cloud that automatically scales with the needs of its users.
HKN begun deploying Nextcloud for its customers almost immediately after Nextcloud started in 2016, convinced by its strong technological leadership and fast development. The bet paid off, now Nextcloud has become the market leader in self-hosted collaboration platforms.
Today, HKN offers bigger organizations a scaleable, HA-capable, resilient platform with Nextcloud that is hosted in their own data centers in three German cities, Düsseldorf, Hamburg and Berlin with soon Frankfurt being added. HKN builds its cluster with Kubernetes, MiCADO and OpenStack – technologies which can serve huge installations in an efficient way.
Their approach to scalability is extremely flexible, and by owning data centers, unique solutions are possible. As an example, say your business needs to temporarily have a dedicated 100GB uplink to the web because you’re sending out a customer mailing with downloads from your Nextcloud server? That, plus the extra compute power can be yours just for the week or two you need it!
Another unique feature HKN offers is ‚hybrid‘ cloud solutions, with an internally, on-premises hosted Nextcloud at the customer working seamlessly with a Nextcloud in their data center.
A proven partner
More than 300 medium-sized companies, public authorities and organisations use the HKN Open Cloud. Typically, their offering is used by customers who value high availability and easy scalability.
HKN offers the perfect solution for customers who need a German-hosted, GDPR compliant, custom and well managed solution which scales any which way is needed. As Nextcloud silver partner, they offer proven expertise with the backing of the entire Nextcloud engineering team when needed!

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.
Last Thursday, the Digital Markets Act went into effect with the first ‚Gatekeepers designations‘. The new EU rules would require Microsoft to stop some of its alleged market-distorting behavior by March 2024, but even if implemented swiftly it is unlikely to create a more equitable market. What we need is more action from the European […]
