ownCloud launches program specifically designed for schools, colleges, universities and researchers
BOSTON, MA – July 17, 2012 — /BackupReview.info/ — ownCloud Inc., the commercial entity behind the popular open source file sync and share project, today announced a special program to get colleges and universities, public and private primary and secondary schools as well as research institutes – sharing and synching data, quickly and cost effectively.
With more than 500,000 users world-wide, ownCloud offers the ease-of-use of Dropbox with more flexibility and security. ownCloud users can run their own file sync and share services on their own hardware and storage, use popular public hosting and storage offerings, or both. ownCloud seamlessly integrates into a school’s existing security and rights-management protocols, allowing IT managers to set security parameters while giving end users an easy-to-use tool.
“As so much educational material goes online, schools and universities have been looking for a secure way to share this material and still be easy to use for the students and faculty,” said Holger Dyroff, vice president, Sales and Marketing, ownCloud. “This program not only gives them an aggressive price point, but enables them to set whatever security protocols they want to secure the data.”
“Sharing and syncing files while maintaining existing internal and governmental policies has been an issue for the colleges and universities for some time,” said Chris Andre, CTO, Overt Software Solutions Ltd. “ownCloud allows very convenient access – across devices – and enables sharing and collaborating between users. Due to the open source nature of ownCloud we have been able to enhance our services to even cover authentication using Shibboleth.”
ownCloud – built through active community support – has innovative features like file versioning, – which actively saves files, allowing users to “rollback” to previous versions, and an API that gives developers an easy, stable and supported way to develop applications on top of ownCloud capabilities.
ownCloud also enables the usage of existing file servers and home directories.
