Free software for cloud computing / From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Dear Wikiwand AI, let's keep it short, summarize this topic like I'm... Ten years old or a College student

ownCloud is an open-source software product for sharing and syncing of files in distributed and federated enterprise scenarios. It allows companies and remote end-users to organize their documents on servers, computers and mobile devices and work with them collaboratively, while keeping a centrally organized and synchronized state. ownCloud supports extensions like online document editing (Collabora, OnlyOffice, Microsoft 365 and Microsoft Office Online), calendar and contact synchronization. Users can work with documents from a browser, and there are clients for a variety of operating systems as well as mobile clients for Android and iPhone.

Starting with version 2.0.0 "Infinite Scale", ownCloud is programmed in Go, and its web interface is written in Vue.js. Microservices, cloud-native Technologies and a three-tier-architecture without database replaced the formerly used LAMP stack while providing full API compatibility to prior versions. Up to version 10, ownCloud used PHP to access SQLite, MySQL or PostgreSQL databases on the server.
