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

    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.

    Dropbox is a SaaS offering from an entity under control and compelled to cooperate with United States military and intelligence programs, not an on-prem solution. Your data is subject to wide-scale mass surveillance and tampering under USA PRISM and similar violations of online privacy and security and the whim of entities that do not honor legal due process.

    pCloud advertises itself as being a Swiss company with Swiss privacy laws, but if you email them or check the IP of the server they use US-based servers. Buyer beware.

    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
