Get your organisation onto the co-operative cloud — why trust the hosting of your office documents to a remote US-based corporation?
Nextcloud is a leading, free, open source, web based office application server, offering document sharing, contacts, calendar and much more.
There is no limit to the number of user accounts or groups that you can add to your Nextcloud server. So, for example, if you run an organisation with a small number of core staff and a large number of volunteers then our Nextcloud hosting could work out cheaper than using corporate services such as G Suite from Google or Office 365 from Microsoft as they charge per user account.
Webarchitects provide secure, private, Nextcloud hosting on shared hosting and virtual servers with HTTPS certificates and secure default settings, running in our data centre in Sheffield powered by green energy, and also support with desktop and mobile client configuration.
For help with the use of Nextcloud please see our Nextcloud wiki page.
We provision Nextcloud servers using our public Ansible playbook with the option to also install a TURN server which enables the use of Nextcloud Talk when end points are using NAT (most networks are these days). This provides private, peer-to-peer voice and video calls between users on desktops, laptops and phones.
We can optionally configure Nextcloud sites to use our shared ONLYOFFICE server to enable simultaneous editing of documents by multiple users using the WYSIWYG web based document editor.
