      Pydio vs ownCloud opinions
      Almost everyone thinks Pydio is a great alternative to ownCloud.
      OwnCloud is groupware. Pydio is a file-sync storage solution. Just because they have overlapping functionality, does NOT make them interchangeable.

      brianlacy Although tailored for families, it offers many of the same features as a typical groupware solution like OwnCloud -- calendaring, group messaging, sharing of files & content, etc.

      pros, cons and recent comments
      OwnCloud is groupware. SyncTrayzor is a "wrapper" for SyncThing, a file-sync storage solution. Just because they appear have overlapping functionality, does NOT make them interchangeable. This is not even a standalone solution!

      Box vs ownCloud opinions
      This alternative is disputed. Box is still a legitimate alternative to ownCloud, but it might have issues that some users think are important.
      Box allows you to share a chunk of your data by uploading it to THEIR storage space : you do not control it any longer. While ownCloud on the opposite allows you to securely share part of YOUR (Home / Enterprise) server storage space. You stay in control.

      ownCloud runs on your own server, not on Box' servers.
