Open source file sync and share project has exploded in popularity
LEXINGTON, MA – January 28, 2015 – /BackupReview.info/ — ownCloud, the world’s most popular open source file sync and share project, turned five last weekend, marking a half decade of rapid adoption, thankful users and one of the most active and dedicated open source communities (in the top 2% of all project teams on Open Hub).
ownCloud gives enthusiasts and technical users a free, secure and innovative way to sync and share data from the storage of their choice. With more than 2 million users worldwide, ownCloud offers the ease-of-use, flexibility, sophistication, privacy and security unmatched by consumer-grade apps. ownCloud installs easily on a web server, enabling anyone to host their own file sync and share, using their own storage (or cloud storage they choose), instead of relying on third parties outside of their control.
“ownCloud really struck a nerve those five years ago and continues to give individuals and businesses the ability to control their files,” said Frank Karlitschek, founder and leader of the ownCloud project. “We are lucky to have one of the most active communities in the world, as you can see here – https://owncloud.org/5years/”
ownCloud has had over 58,000 commits made by more than 550 contributors, currently developing ownCloud at a speed of about 1,500 commits (changes to code) per month. This makes ownCloud one of the largest open-source teams in the world — in the top 2% of all project teams on Open Hub.
Beyond code contributors, including roughly 70 who contribute regularly, more than 4,000 people submitted bug reports and feature requests, more than 900 have closed issues and more than 6,500 participate in discussions around issues and feature requests.
