Overall Satisfaction with ownCloud

As a web design company, we work with several clients and use OwnCloud to store and transfer design assets and large files. We use lots of photography and OwnCloud has the capacity to store these files for safe keeping.
  • OwnCloud has a nice filing system where users can create lots of different folders and subfolders to help keep things organized.
  • OwnCloud has lots of space depending on your plan and it's great for holding files and storing things you wouldn't want to take up space on your desktop or an external hard drive.
  • The more files OwnCloud has, the slower it seems to be. Viewing files inside OwnCloud can be really cumbersome and I have found other tools to be much more user friendly in finding what I'm looking for.
  • Viewing photography assets stored in OwnCloud is extremely slow and not as helpful as something like Google Drive or even Dropbox would be.
  • Owncloud stores files for us and keeps documents safe in a cloud based environment.
  • It takes a long time to use when it comes to finding documents or downloading, so it slows me down.
Other tools with similar functionality have been much better for me to use. However, my company uses ownCloud as its software of choice, so I use it to remain consistent with them.
It's well suited if you are storing lots of files for a project and want to keep things organized by multiple projects. It's also nice because you can package up links and send them to clients without them having to have an account.
