  • Reliable cloud services can only be trusted when they are available from different providers and allow the unproblematic migration of data through the use of open software. This philosophy is the core of the Open Cloud Alliance, establishing trust between the providers and bringing them considerable benefits – and most importantly: delivering true added value to the customers.

  • For ownCloud, it is important that the cloud creates more freedom, not less. This is why open cloud services like the ownCloud filesync and -share solution are based on open source and open standards.
    Through the integration of existing IT systems, e.g. Active Directory, ownCloud cloud services can be embedded in existing IT infrastructures seamlessly. The basis for this is widened by the Open Cloud Alliance, which thus provides more freedom whilst ensuring control and administration for the release or ownership of data.

  • The Open Cloud Alliance addresses the needs of the still large number of IT users and IT service providers who find the idea of cloud computing attractive but also yet see deficits in most of the current offered market solutions.

  • The Open Cloud Alliance with UCS as technical basis and the already existing enterprise apps is the perfect platform to offer really open cloud services. Especially as a young cloud start-up it is important to offer a wide range of applications to SMBs and realize our vision “for openness”.
