    NextCloud is a fork of OwnCloud, features are almost the same, so take a look at both.

    ownCloud is the original and far more stable than Nextcloud.

  • Google Drive is a file storage and synchronization service which enables user cloud storage, file sharing and collaborative editing.
    This alternative is disputed. It's still a legit alternative but it might have some issues that some users think is important.

    NextCloud is self hosted, so you control where your data is stored. Drive, on the other hand, stores your files without encryption on Google's servers. Is one of the simplest ways of replacing Drive.

    Nextcloud and Owncloud are on premise solutions, Google Drive isn't.

    NextCloud is groupware. Google Drive is a file-sync storage solution. Just because they have overlapping functionality, does NOT make them interchangeable.

    Seafile is a more focussed, nimbler sync & share solution compared to Nextcloud (and the original ownCloud) that excels in performance and stability.

    It's compatible with Federated Cloud sharing, meaning it can send and receive shares from Nextcloud and ownCloud servers as well

    Although on the surface the features may seem comparable (calendar & media storage, etc.), the way the work and the functionality they bring is vastly different. NextCloud is a hosted groupware solution; it provides the backend for these activites. iCloud merely provides syncing capabilities between Apple's single-purpose apps.
