    Self-hosted keeps your data secure. Works great with desktop, mobile and web clients. Lots of add-on apps for mail, calendar, RSS feeds/news, music players, diagrams and more. Share files with third parties. Setup your own inbound file drops. Outlook plugin for big file send support or remote upload. Integrate it with Libre Office or Only Office for a full online office suite. There is more functionality released in every version. A clear winner.

    The fact that you can install it on your own server is good enough.

    Requires you to set up your own server running the Nextcloud server software. This is much more complicated than setting up OneDrive (and similar), which usually just require you to run an installer and register an account. This makes Nextcloud less suitable for non-techy general users.

    Most users think ownCloud is a great alternative to Microsoft OneDrive.

    With Nextcloud you control your own data, you are limited by your own hardware and don't have to trust Microsoft with your data.
