  • Amazon WorkSpaces (VDI), Google Workspace (formerly G Suite) and Trello
We prefer Nextcloud over Trello and Google Workspace as Nextcloud is considerable easier to use, access and manage. Tools like Trello and Google Workspace come with a powerhouse suite of products that are designed to work together. Nextcloud offers a solution that is just the tools you need to work, without the tools you don't. While beta testing Nextcloud we found the UI easy to navigate without overbearing tutorials.

Finding and maintaining files is a lot easier than Google Drive. The versioning facilities, security, maintainability seems to outperform Google Drive and since the client also insisted due to the reliability we've switched from Google Drive to Nextcloud.

Main feature is the possibility to self host your files and have control over your data (especially if it is sensitive and you want to host the data in house). Others provide good services too, but thinking about GDPR this is the easiest route you can take. Since we use it for file sharing mainly this is our main focus.

As an offshoot (fork) of ownCloud, Nextcloud has a slightly better feature set and more integrations. Both products perform their core function of web-based file access admirably, but Nextcloud has gone above and beyond with the recent release of Hub in version 21. That it is now almost a drop-in replacement for Zoom and other web-based conference tools amazed me. We only keep the other tools because of the dial-in capability that WebRTC based tools like Hub do not have.

Dropbox was no longer an option due to their hosting policy. We needed an EU-based solution, preferably open source and self-hosted. There were also security leaks with Dropbox in the past. OneDrive is dreadfully slow, Nextcloud is as fast as you want it to be. On a dedicated server with 4 users, it is lightning fast.

Nextcloud is still growing and it is still developing itself as compared to it's competitors, it is the most underrated Cloud Platform as it is not as popular like other products, but it is a great value for money and it is safe and secure, yet there is still a room for growth and development in it

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.

I'm comparing, but it wasn't a problem for me, because I couldn't use it because of the security of the company that manages our Office 365. But, both allow practically the same options, they are fast, among others. Maybe Office 365 handles the Word, Excel, etc. files better, for obvious reasons, but other than that, I see that Nextcloud is very good too.

Even excluding the budget and privacy concerns, we selected Nextcloud for its simplicity of use and the UI is very clear.
It just does what it is supposed to do.
  • No license.
  • Much, much ease of use.
  • Not opening several windows.
  • No un-useful services.
  • No automatic update.
  • Control over data.
  • Open-source software.
  • Integrations.
