ownCloud overview

ownCloud is an open source enterprise file sharing platform designed to provide users with secure access to company files and documents from any device. APIs and open architecture enable the addition of corporate branding and extension of core functionality to meet evolving company needs.

Two-factor authentication (2FA), ransomware protection, password policies, file firewalls, and end-to-end encryption ensure that all data is kept secure. Native mobile apps for Android and iOS allow authorized users to access files from wherever they are. Admins can log and audit a range of account-level activities including logins, file updates, and file sharing activity for compliance reporting.

Outlook integration also lets users share access to directories and files from within their email client.

Open source custom storage solution.

Owncloud is absolutely wonderful. With pricing of storage going up everywhere else, OwnCloud's system is the one to beat. Open source, it works just like Dropbox/Onedrive and other systems we've already used. It's quick to set up, most web hosts can handle it with no issues. You can customize your login page, your admins, and using it is pretty intuitive. If you're looking for customized storage that you control, OwnCloud will do the job well.

When first added, there were a few errors that I had to have my host sort, because I couldn't find any documentation on them for the OwnCloud. Since it's open source, it doesn't have a very robust support system.
