Pros

This is a really great piece of software that has been well designed and implemented and does a great job in solving many problems and improving productivity.
Overall the product is good, and a number of addons provide good expanded integration and functionality.
It is your own server so it is the best to secure by your own way.

Pros

The GUI is nice and smooth and easy to use and the integrations with other SSO technologies is easy to implement and very stable.
We are very pleased with FileCloud and believe it offers our organization excellent value and great flexibility.
So far it has been great and customer service has been very responsive and helpful.

Cons

It seems management had some terrible ideas which is why all the mind-share seems to be behind nextcloud these days.
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.
In big folders with a lot of files, this take a while and it use a lot of hard drive. So when your OS starts client will kill the HD until finishing the indexing of files.

Cons

Poor support for another languate than English. The Changes are very disruptive, I don't like it.
You start working on a file that has already been modified by someone else. This alone makes the software useless for certain types of work.
Need more higher internet connection which is poor in my country.

Past its prime and headed the wrong direction

Reviewed 4 years ago

Good while still community oriented, now a dead-end product.

Pros

When I implemented ownCloud, it was a neat opensource platform with an active community, with the option of solid support at a fair price. Filesharing with "cloud" providers like Dropbox leaves you at their mercy for security (or lack thereof!) and the annoying clients require re-training on a regular basis. The support costs of the simple ownCloud web interface with drag-drop file uploading were one-time only. Performance was good enough, support was cheap enough, and it was fine for what we used it for.

Cons

Over the course of a few years, the founders left due to "professional managers" messing things up. Support costs went up with no real indication why. I dropped ownCloud paid and switched to a solid commercial product called FileCloud. For "free" OSS I strongly recommend NextCloud, I've helped several friends set it up and they are ecstatic with the results.

FileCloud File Sharing Solution

Reviewed 3 years ago

Very good! The customer support related topics are being handled within a day and the software is running stable. Release of updates / patches is also on a regular basis, so the software is being taken care of from the developers.

Pros

We were in search for a possiblity to provide our customers a simple, yet secure file sharing solution. After trying different competitors (OwnCloud, GoodSync etc.) we stuck with FileCloud since it is delivering a good Webportal and the possiblity to provide the customer with the necessary admin-roles.

Cons

Initially we tried to use the real-time sync, but as the description suggested back then it was implemented in a beta-phase with a max recommended item count to 100k items, which was to small for us. But we still found a solution using the webinterface, which is currently meeting the needs of our customers.
