Store, Share and Connect with Your Own Private Cloud: ownCloud

Store, Share and Connect with Your Own Private Cloud: ownCloud | Distance Ed Archive | Scoop.it

"ownCloud helps enterprises concerned about sensitive data leakage via Dropbox deliver a secure file sync and share solution on site, on their storage, integrated with their infrastructure and security systems, managed to their policies. The result is an easy-to-use solution that provides complete control over sensitive corporate data." from source: https://owncloud.com

ghbrett's insight:

This is a solution that makes a lot of sense to me. Keeping the curation and management of content locally will allow personal and enterprise installations to share content among their community. 

 

Be sure to read @RobinGoods' comments below that are much more detailed than mine.

Robin Good's curator insight, February 25, 2013 2:20 PM


If you are looking for a good and safe alternative to Drobox or Box.net here is one: Owncloud is an open source software which you can install on your own web server and which provides you not only with full file storage and sharing capabilties, but also with the ability to connect directly to other file storage services and to run HTML5 apps.


Excerpted from the Techcrunch review: "OwnCloud is a free software suite, written in PHP, that provides file storage, synchronization, and sharing. It provides the same basic features of Dropbox or Box.net."


"The core ownCloud offering is file storage and synchronization. You also get optional contacts and calendar synchronization, if you want to use it. As an open source application, you can install it on any computer you control. This means you know how and where your data is stored, something which existing hosted solutions abstract away from you. Individuals and enterprises can install ownCloud on their own hardware, and define access policies according to their own needs."


"...the ownCloud mobile client can automatically upload pictures taken from your phone."


"...ownCloud can be connected to third-party storage like Dropbox or Google Drive or even an FTP server. These are read-write connections, allowing you to use third-party storage in whatever ways make sense for you..."


"...ownCloud supports HTML5 applications, allowing you to add all sorts of additional functionality. The ownCloud app catalog has dozens of apps."

10 Tips to Make BYOD A Success In Your Enterprise

10 Tips to Make BYOD A Success In Your Enterprise | Distance Ed Archive | Scoop.it
BYOD is a major undertaking. These 10 steps can make it simpler and more productive.
ghbrett's insight:

Bring Your Own Device is a growing trend, especially in Higher Education. But, in the corporate or government it has not been adopted as much. Many of these employees have personal IT equipment at home, but are issued a standard device for work. As an example many workers carry two smart phones around: 1 for family and 1 for work.  Some people would like to merge the equipment they use to simplify things. On the other hand, other people want to keep their work life separate from their personal life, so BYOD will not work for them. Some people would like to merge the equipment they use to simplify things.
