Nextcloud Reviews

I love the idea of NextCloud. But it doesn't meet my needs. It might yours, though. So don't give up on it!

I love open source software, and in the story of NextCloud and its OwnCloud roots, I side - overall - with NextCloud. For reasons of freedom and openness and trying to make the world a better software place. But... I won't use NextCloud in the near future and the reason is that my needs aren't met by the NextCloud client. It seeks to allow me to sync my files between multiple computers. But I have - literally - hundreds of thousands of (very small, ie <100kB) files to sync. And the NextCloud client can't cope with this. It tries to catalogue everything and gets stuck, lags, and mashes up the sync. That was the case with OpenCloud's v9 client and it's true of NextCloud v11.

I love the idea of NextCloud, but it doesn't work for me.

If you're not a special case like me, try it; I think it might be worth your while, so you can escape the tyrrany of evil services like Dropbox and Google Drive, who have your number, can read your files and must give it to the NSA if asked without telling you.

Otherwise, spare a thought for the low price, reliable and EU-based seafile.de (now SyncWerk.com).

Yes, syncing hundreds of thousands of very small files is a though challenge and the current client isn't super good at it. However, we have made progress already and are working on a more complete solution - be sure to check it out again in half a year or so ;-)

Nextcloud is in my cloud

Easiest way to deploy Nextcloud and additions like the Collabora Online Office is the Appliance based on Univention Corporate Server (https://www.univention.com/products/univention-app-center/app-catalog/nextcloud/ ). Best thing is that you'll get updates for the whole stack in one place - and that it is free to use.

An excellent open source alternative to any proprietary cloud storage solution. By far the most scalable and customizable solution out there.

I don't know if I make it through a day without using my private, personal, self hosted cloud server. It kind of runs my day syncing my calendars, contacts and currently its also my alternative to google music as I stream my entire music collection to my phone. If your aiming to truely own your data and keep it that way then Nextcloud is the key.

Nextcloud is much more than a simple replacement for Dropbox, Google Drive, etc. It is an online collaboration platform, with all the bells and whistles of such a platform. It has a small footprint and it highly extensible.

It is open source cloud. I can install it on any linux-based systems and integrate with PHP and SQLite. All of them are open source softwares.
It easy to install and use.

Easy to install. Works very well in the web, Ubuntu Linux desktop and Android.
More integrations (with rocket.chat, for example) would be good.

Really awesome Tool for sharing things completely ...

It's way faster than Owncloud and the development is much much faster. You get faster updates and features. And there is more for free compared to Owncloud. So there are many reason to switch to Nextcloud right now.

Really awesome Tool for sharing things completely private. Before Nextcloud I used Owncloud which also was quite nice. But the development was really really slow and feature requests were so often ignored. When I switched to Nextcloud all my issue I had on Owncloud were already fixed. So yeah this was the best choice to switch. The Migration is not that easy von Owncloud the Nextcloud. But there are Tutorial how to do that like mine: https://www.kwoxer.de/2018/05/01/owncloud-durch-nextcloud-ersetzen-migrieren/

Great Tool thank you guys.
