Nextcloud announces business support packages

By

Open-source file syncing and sharing software company Nextcloud has announced the availability of support packages for businesses.

The announcement, on Tuesday, comes a little more than a month since the company was formed.

Nextcloud was created as a fork from a company named ownCloud which folded thereafter as it lost its funding in the US.

In an update made available on Tuesday, enterprise capabilities including Windows Network Drive storage support, Shibboleth/SAML authentication integration, theming capabilities and control over password policy were incorporated into Nextcloud.

The release also fixed numerous security issues following feedback from its bug bounty programme.

The company, which is led by a veteran of the KDE Project, Frank Karlitschek, also announced on Tuesday that it was joining the open cloud mesh initiative.

There it will operate under the umbrella of research collaborative GÉANT which aims to link researchers and universities in Europe, the Americas and Asia through interconnected private clouds.

"The project builds on the federated cloud syncing protocol developed by Nextcloud contributors over the past years and already allows syncing between Nextcloud and Pydio servers, a first important step in breaking the barrier between the various public and private cloud silos," the company's community spokesman Jos Poortvliet said.

A client for iOS is also on the cards, with Nextcloud saying this would be made available through the makers of the popular CryptoCloud app.

The Nextcloud iOS client will support:

  • File handling like renaming, deleting and moving of files;
  • Display of documents, photos, videos, audio files with previews;
  • Favorite files to keep them synchronised and available offline; and
  • Automatic uploading of images taken with the phone camera.
