New community release improves file handling and collaboration across clouds
LEXINGTON, MA – February 9, 2015 – /BackupReview.info/ — The ownCloud community, developing the world’s most popular open source file sync and share software, today released ownCloud Server 8.0, speeding up sharing and collaboration in the cloud while maintaining control for data owners.
ownCloud Server 8.0 elevates Federated Cloud sharing to the next level—allowing users to share files with other ownCloud servers—and introduces additional notifications and user interface improvements to the sharing process. ownCloud Server 8.0 also introduces support for favorites and improved search functionality, enabling users to quickly and easily access important files without excessive navigation.
ownCloud Server 8.0 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 installs easily on a web server, enabling anyone to host their own file sync and share software while using their own storage (and/or cloud storage if they choose), instead of relying on third parties with files stored outside of their control.
ownCloud Server 8.0 features include:
Federated Cloud Sharing has been recently celebrated in the announcement of OpenCloudMesh, a joint international initiative under the umbrella of the GÉANT Association, which is built on ownCloud’s open Federated Cloud sharing application programming interface (API). OpenCloudMesh enables collaboration beyond the borders of individual clouds to create a globally interconnected mesh of research clouds — without sacrificing any advantages in privacy, control and security an on-premises cloud provides.
Favorites and Metadata Support
Optimized Search Interface
Additional enhancements in this release include web interface enhancements on both the user and admin interface. ownCloud has provided faster access to data and applications with simplified app installation and configuration to LDAP/AD improvements and sophisticated, yet simple, user management tools. Improvements to Documents and the provisioning API further ensure that users can collaborate across systems and files. The provisioning API, that had been limited to the Enterprise Edition, is now available to the community as an open source app, providing the same system administration benefits to the overall ownCloud community.
ownCloud Server 8.0 is now available for download. Further details about the features in this release can be found on http://owncloud.org/eight/
