    While searching for tools to satisfy a quickly scaling online startup, we found Nextcloud is well suited for today's remote collaborative team. Nextcloud has just the right toolset for a collaborative workspace including video, chat, many file formats accepted, and intuitive user interface. Comparatively other popular tools like Trello were distracting with more features than functionality. Working with Nextcloud is much like having a workspace with all your content and tools available anywhere on any device, without the ads, distractions, and irrelevant functionality. We will continue to utilize Nextcloud as a remote workspace for evolving and scaling teams.

    Panzura CloudFS

    Panzura works well for companies that have a high amount of data with cross site collaboration being done. The caching ensures you don't need huge investments of storage at each site and the cloud storage ensures high availability over what can be done locally. Also helps eliminate duplicate data across sites and/or small variations in the same data.

    Pros

    Nextcloud

    • Very intuitive interface.
    • Superb synchronization agent.
    • Integration with AD/LDAP, external file sources, and other tools is top-notch.
    • Wide variety of "apps" (plugins).

    Panzura CloudFS

    • Real time file locking
    • Backup and recovery
    • Easy access to all your files

    Cons

    Nextcloud

    • Slow in comparison to other solutions
    • May be complex for the start since there are lots of apps and features
    • May be not focusing on core topics

    Panzura CloudFS

    • I would like to see more connectors. Tie in to traditional block storage or NAS. Additional cloud connectors to products like Hitachi Content Platform.
    • I would like to see a collaborative product created between Panzura and Riverbed. I envision an almost perfect small footprint ROBO solution where Riverbed provides the compute+WAN optimization and Panzura provides the storage/risiliancy components. Combine the boxes into a single 4U solution and you have a near perfect product for remote offices.

    I never needed support as everything always worked fine. The documentation on Nextcloud website is extensive and clear. The community is very active on the forum and should support you if you don't already find what you are looking for.

    Hands down support is the best part of Panzura. Their techs are always helpful, always knowledgeable, and consistently solve complex problems quickly. You can definitely tell they hire their support folks from the top tier of other companies and they go above and beyond what I have come to expect in terms of support compared to other companies.

    Alternatives Considered

    Nextcloud

    Nextcloud stacks up pretty well against Mattermost and ownCloud. I really appreciate the fact that Nextcloud seems to integrate with other products pretty seamlessly and allows for extensibility that our product team can extend and improve functionality without a tremendous ramp-up time. We once used ownCloud in previous years, but they went the wrong way, and have found Nextcloud to be the right direction over time.

    There are several other devices but Panzura is best of class.

    Return on Investment

    Nextcloud

    • Reduced costs: Cheaper than hosted alternatives if you need a lot of space.
    • Professional impression on partners and clients (branding, security).
    Joost Mulder | TrustRadius Reviewer

    Panzura CloudFS

    • Exceptional positive impact on availability - as users move so do their files.
    • Panzura+DFS allowed for simple chargeback models to be implemented.
