ownCloud

It's perfectly suited for agencies, where customers and clients are constantly sharing files with each other. Owncloud allows for this, and it's really easy to go back and see what files were shared and when! Having an archive is really useful as we don't have to go back to the client and request it again!

Support

ownCloud6.4
Based on 1 answer
Regarding the community edition, there is a reasonably good support on the IRC, forums and in the issue section on Github. Perhaps a much more individual approach would be available if the premium support was chosen and the instance of the server was provided by the Owncloud company that also offers some premium extensions, not available generally. However, we did not need this level of support yet.
