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

      FileCloud vs Nextcloud opinions
      pros, cons and recent comments
      FileCloud is also an on-premise solution like Nextcloud but gives more control over data and many more security features. FileCloud provides seamless collaboration, secure file exchange and better mobility compared to Nextcloud. Many features like full text search, federated search, antivirus/ransomware protection, powerful admin controls, a better user interface than Nextcloud and amazing customer support than Nextcloud, FileCloud is definitely the best alternative to Nextcloud.
