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

      MEGA, the successor of MegaUpload , is a cloud storage and file hosting service produced by Mega Limited.
      MEGA vs ownCloud opinions
      Some users think MEGA is a great alternative to ownCloud, some don't.
      Lot of space, good sync app, good encryption, etc

      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.

      MEGA is hosted, ownCloud runs on your own server. One has NOTHING to do with the other.

      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.

    3. Seafile is a professional open source cloud storage platform for organizations. It has complete file syncing and sharing features, reliable file storage and advanced privacy protection feature.
      Seafile vs ownCloud opinions
      Most users think Seafile is a great alternative to ownCloud.
      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)

    4. Resilio Sync allows you to automatically sync files between computers via secure, distributed technology (P2P bittorrent protocol).
      Resilio Sync vs ownCloud opinions
      Some users think Resilio Sync is a great alternative to ownCloud, some don't.
      Like OwnCloud, BittorrentSync allows syncing files across chosen computers even in local network, so it doesn't require connection to the internet.

    5. OneDrive (formerly known as SkyDrive) delivers a satisfactory online file storage and sharing solution in a free and easy to use service. It has a design that is both attractive and functional.
      Microsoft OneDrive vs ownCloud opinions
      This alternative is disputed. Microsoft OneDrive is still a legitimate alternative to ownCloud, but it might have issues that some users think are important.
      ownCloud runs on your own server, not on microsoft's servers.

    6. IPFS is a global, versioned, peer-to-peer filesystem. It combines ideas from Git, BitTorrent, Kademlia, SFS, and the web. It is like a single bittorrent swarm, exchanging git objects. IPFS provides an interface as simple as the HTTP web, but with permanence built in.
