Data security
Downloading and installation

What is ownCloud?


An open-source software, ownCloud is the ideal platform for businesses and discerning private users alike when it comes to syncing and accessing files—from any device, anywhere. You benefit from an extremely easy user interface and maximum data sovereignty: rather than placing your files in the public Cloud, you operate ownCloud on your own server. This gives you full control and constant ease of use. With 1&1 ownCloud hosting, the installation process is extremely simple, completed in just a few clicks. What's more, you benefit from the know-how of our expert support team, as well as the huge ownCloud open-source community which already consists of more than 12 million users worldwide.

An overview of ownCloud features

File sharing and syncing
Encryption 2.0
Teamwork and productivity
ownCloud makes it extremely easy to sync and share files within your company. Thanks to the file firewall, you can also access all your uploaded files securely from home or out and about, from any device.

With convenient management tools and a clear user interface, you can customize the upload limit or access rights in just a few clicks—ensuring you have total control over your files at all times.
The ownCloud encryption 2.0 enables you to take control of the encryption standards and adjust them at any time to suit the needs of your business. The high security standards of the 1&1 server not only provide maximum flexibility, but also complement the modern encryption of ownCloud.

In addition, ownCloud with ClamAV has an antivirus system that scans uploaded files upon activation, thus preventing the automatic spread of malware within your company.

Boost productivity and work together with your colleagues via ownCloud—any time, from anywhere in the world! Work on documents and spreadsheets simultaneously via your browser without the issue of conflicting versions.

With ownCloud, you can import your calendar and sync important appointments and meetings with your colleagues. You can also tag colleagues and customize the access rights for each folder individually—giving you total control.
Two-factor authentication
Flexible API
Ensure double protection for your important and sensitive files: thanks to two-factor authentication available through ownCloud, you can set two separate user identification components.

Only those with a username, password and a separate access token can access your files. An access token could be a one-time password, for example, which is sent to the user's mobile phone.
Do you already have an IT department and your own special Cloud solution requirements that go beyond the standard ownCloud features?

No problem. Thanks to ownCloud's flexible API (application programming interface) and open-source architecture, you or your IT team can simply develop the app further. Thus, you can upgrade the core functions and customize them to suit your individual needs.

All the benefits of ownCloud at a glance

  • Use ownCloud to share and sync files, import your calendar and collaborate with your team any time, anywhere—all via an easy-to-use web interface and mobile apps.
  • Extensive security features make ownCloud the ideal solution for businesses: among others, these include an integrated antivirus system or two-factor authentication.
  • ownCloud is open-source and, thanks to the flexible API and open-source architecture, can easily be customized and extended according to your needs.
  • With ownCloud, you also have the knowledge and experience of a huge global community at your disposal: more than 12 million users already have the software.
  • Simply download the ownCloud client from the 1&1 App Center and install it in a matter of clicks—and our expert support team can help you at any stage should you need it.

ownCloud vs. Nextcloud – or maybe Dropbox?

Besides ownCloud, there are several other options when it comes to open-source software for professional file sharing—such as Nextcloud, which was developed based on ownCloud. ownCloud's functions set a new standard and have therefore been adopted by this comparable product to an almost identical extent.

However, there are major differences to public Cloud services like Dropbox; our table overview compares some of the most important features:
FAQ - FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS ABOUT THE TOPIC:

ownCloud Server

  • For whom is ownCloud suitable?

    The ownCloud open-source software is suitable for businesses of any size that need a flexible, comprehensive solution for file sharing and hosting. With such a wide range of options when it comes to collaboration and syncing, you can work on documents, spreadsheets or calendars online as a team—without the problem of conflicting versions. There are also plenty of options for managing access rights, making it easy for administrators to customize and monitor the read and write access granted to employees. Moreover, private users also benefit from the extra security that ownCloud offers compared to public Cloud services.

    Thanks to numerous security features, plus the option of installing onto a server of your choice, you no longer need to give up control of your sensitive files. You can set up the ownCloud client quickly and easily on your 1&1 Cloud Server—ensuring you have total control over your files whilst also benefiting from the high security standards of our 1&1 data centers, as well as stringent German data protection. With many public Cloud services, on the other hand, your data is stored on external servers whose location is often difficult to find out.

  • Can I use ownCloud on different devices?

    Yes. You can use ownCloud on all standard devices: as well as web browser access, there are also numerous ownCloud apps and clients available. Use ownCloud via Android or iPhone or from your desktop computer with Windows or Linux. You can also use ownCloud for Mac. Thanks to the file firewall that comes with ownCloud, you do not need to worry about accessing ownCloud via devices outside of the corporate network: the firewall sets complex rules for access, such as the IP addresses, devices or geographic locations from which access should be permitted. Based on these and other additional criteria, you can restrict access at your own discretion, in line with your company's security requirements. This ensures that only authorized employees have access to files—from anywhere in the world. You can then carry out international projects, allow your employees to work from home, and to access important files whilst away on business.
  • Is my data secure with ownCloud (also after updates)?

    Yes. When using ownCloud on your 1&1 server, you benefit from extensive security features which keep your data protected. Thus, you can run back-ups of your ownCloud outside of the actual Cloud environment in order to protect against data loss through faulty updates, for example. The main advantage is that you can set up the ownCloud client onto a server of your choice—and thus keep control of all files stored in the Cloud. Public Cloud services often store your data on servers located all over the world, meaning they don't need to comply with stringent German data protection laws. When opting for a 1&1 server with ownCloud, you can rest assured that all data belonging to customers from Germany is stored in our local data centers—ensuring utmost reliability and compliance with the strictest data protection guidelines.

    The ownCloud software itself comes with numerous security features to protect your files from unauthorized access and malware: you can protect links to parts of your files with an expiry date and also secure sensitive documents with a password. Administrators also have the option of assigning user access rights on an individual basis, which can be adjusted at any time. If you require even more security, you can also set up two-factor authentication—meaning that users are only able to access your ownCloud if they have a password, access token and username. On top of SSL transmission and two-factor authentication, ownCloud also comes with its own antivirus scanner. This checks uploaded files for malware, preventing the spread of viruses or Trojans.
  • Is it possible to encrypt my data with ownCloud?

    Yes - ownCloud provides two options when it comes to data encryption. One option is to encrypt the data on your server using ownCloud; alternatively, you can opt for an encrypted transmission of data via SSL/TLS. Thanks to ownCloud's innovative Encryption 2.0 with a modular security concept, you can react quickly and adaptably to any potential security gaps that may arise and quickly change the algorithm. Encryption 2.0 can be quickly and easily integrated into your existing system. The modular structure also makes it possible to adjust and exchange individual components of your security concept at any time. For additional security, you have the option of managing keys in a company-specific key store, independent of the data in the Cloud.
  • What are the system requirements for ownCloud?

    You can easily download ownCloud as an open-source application from the 1&1 App Center and install it on your server. All you need for ownCloud hosting with 1&1 is a suitable server. Simply choose a suitable Cloud hosting tariff with Apache, Linux, at least PHP 5.4, MySQL 5.5 and MariaDB 10.0 or higher—and then you're ready to go. Once the set-up is complete, you can access your data from any device—ownCloud is always user-friendly and easy to operate, be it with Windows, MacOS and Linux or as a mobile version or web app. With 1&1, you have the added advantage of being able to rely on our specialist support at all times. If you have questions regarding use or installation, our experts are available 24 hours a day, seven days a week—and are just a phone call away.
