ownCloud

ownCloud is a file sharing server that puts the control and security of your own data back into your hands. ownCloud is a suite of client-server software for creating and using file hosting services. ownCloud is functionally very similar to the widely used Dropbox, with the primary functional difference being that the Server Edition of ownCloud is free and open-source, and thereby allowing anyone to install and operate it without charge on a private server.

It also supports extensions that allow it to work like Google Drive, with online document editing, calendar and contact synchronization, and more. Its openness avoids enforced quotas on storage space or the number of connected clients, instead of having hard limits (like on storage space or the number of users) defined only by the physical capabilities of the server. This chart bootstraps an ownCloud deployment on a Kubernetes cluster using the Helm package manager.

It also packages the Bitnami MariaDB chart which is required for bootstrapping a MariaDB deployment for the database requirements of the ownCloud application.

Prerequisites

  • Kubernetes 1.4+ with Beta APIs enabled
  • PV provisioner support in the underlying infrastructure

External Storage

With ownCloud, you can also leverage pre-existing storage: FTP, Swift, S3, Dropbox and more. Administrators are able to decide whether to store the most sensitive data on-premises and less sensitive data in the cloud while making all of your files available through a single interface and enabling compliance with your chosen security and governance policies.

Encryption & Security

ownCloud is all about securing your data. Encrypt your data and make sure that no one, other than yourself, has access. With credential or master key-based encryption, ownCloud adds an additional layer of security to your files.

End-to-end Encryption

The new end-to-end encryption, or E2EE, plugin completely encrypts your data and neither an administrator nor third parties who have access to the infrastructure can read the data. The new E2EE plugin is the safest and easiest way to send encrypted files between two or more people.

Why Private Cloud?

How secure is your data? Public Cloud-based file sharing vendors want you to believe that it is safe to store sensitive data on their public servers, outside of your control. They promise your data will be encrypted; they assure you that data access will be limited to your authorized employees; they proclaim that their solutions are certified to comply with your regulatory requirements. Some even say they will “indemnify” you for litigation resulting from data misuse.

Security

At ownCloud, we take security very seriously and we know that it encompasses broad considerations, processes, and technologies. ownCloud installs in the data center or data center of your trust; managed by you, to your policies, following your procedures. Encryption at rest secures your files on the server and still allows sharing among users. The File Firewall ensures all access requests meet rules set by the administrator, and existing infrastructure – such as intrusion detection and log management – can provide added layers of security. With WebDAV, mobile libraries and the ownCloud API as well as several enterprise-only apps, secure file sharing is under your control.
