      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.

      MEGA vs ownCloud
      pros, cons and recent comments
      Lot of space, good sync app, good encryption, etc
      Top positive comment  over 4 years ago

      Good balance between security, usability, and features. Suitable for someone who wants a little more power and security than traditional services like Dropbox have to offer, but not the complexities of P2P and self-hosted systems like ownCloud, or the headaches of self-managed encryption.

      ownCloud runs on your own server.
      Top negative comment  about 4 years ago

      MEGA is hosted, ownCloud runs on your own server. One has NOTHING to do with the other.
      Negative comment over 1 year ago

      OwnCloud runs on your own server, MEGO does not. That's the unique keypoint of OwnCloud and MEGA does not share it so MEGA is not an alternative to OC.

      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)

      sharing is not that intuitive

      pros, cons and recent comments
      ownCloud's core feature is to run on your *own* server. Google is the absolute opposite of that.
      Top negative comment  about 4 years ago

      Google drive is a service, with limited options to custom configured the environment.
      Negative comment 3 months ago

      Not similar at all, ownCloud is a software that can be installed on your own server. Google Drive is a *hosted* *service*.
      Negative comment over 1 year ago

      Not self hosted, not open source, freemium.
