What Is Nextcloud?

 

Nextcloud is an open source file hosting service, designed to help you store and access the files your company needs to remain productive. With Nextcloud, you’ll have access to dozens of built-in features to help you keep your files secure and improve your team’s productivity.

For example, you’ll be able to tag files with custom tags, search for files, and even name favorites so you can find them easily. You can also share files between team members and with people from other organizations. Default security features also give you administrative control over your users—all while your data is protected with antivirus scanning and encryption.

However, for some businesses, Nextcloud simply isn’t enough. It doesn’t offer all the features you need, doesn’t have the interface you want, and/or doesn’t have the level of security you need in your organization. That’s where custom Nextcloud developers come into play.
