      jancborchardt It’s a community-fork of ownCloud with all components being open source. :)

      It Is quite similar to ownCloud, but it includes the ownCloud Enterprise Features like Collabora Online, Calender, Contacts etc... also in the free community version. The focus of Nextcloud is to be secure (2 factor auth). PS: Theres a better AppStore in Nextcloud and apps are more supported and get more updates.

      It is much easier to install and much more extensible, while still offering almost all features of the ownCloud.

      Seafile vs ownCloud
      pros, cons and recent comments
      brianlacy OwnCloud is groupware. Seafile is a file-sync storage solution. Just because they have overlapping functionality, does NOT make them interchangeable.

      It is similar to ownCloud in that it's self-hosted. Does not have apps such as Calendar, and is not compatible with the Federated Cloud sharing (ownCloud+Nextcloud+Pydio)

      marcmcPherson We tried owncloud but the time to implement was too long. We switched to FileCloud and had good support and were able to go live in 2 weeks.

      FileCloud is the best on-premise solution with a focus on security and user-friendliness. The support is fast and reliable.

      omarsefian Excellent support, not too expensive and while not open source it really does help with what we needed. Very secure as you can host it on-premises.

      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.

      with cozy you can sync more than just files. like contacts and calendars which is more important to me than file sharing.
